Yesterday was our Spring Concert and parent day. It was a day where all the families are invited to come to the classrooms, enjoy a school wide program, and also come to a brunch. Days like this tend to sky-rocket my nerves. Put me in front of a gaggle of kids and I am cool and collected. In fact, I’ve even gotten okay with my parent volunteers who come in once- twice a week. However, when we are talking 3-4 adults per child, that makes my voice have a bit of a quiver in it. You would think after 9 years that I would be over this but it still makes me nervous!!
This Spring Concert really went fabulously. My kids were A-DOR-ABLE on stage and the classroom connect went better than I could have asked. My kids had practiced reading two-three books that they wanted to share with their loved ones and then we took on the parents and grandparents in a friendly game of Bump! Denise from Sunny Days in Second Grade creates the best math games. My students love them and the parents RAVED about them afterwards.
