Motivational Monday and Back to School

Today, I'm linking up with Sarah and Tamara at First Grade Buddies for their linky called Motivate Me Monday! I think all teachers need a little motivation from time to time especially with all the hats we wear.  Teachers are truly amazing people who get the job done.

Back to School 
I officially started back to work last Monday. There were 3 days of Professional Development and little time to work in my room. I'm still trying to get it together. Today was the third day for my students. I have 18 superstars who are already blinding me with their brightness. They all have so many wonderful things and ideas to shared. Some of my little stars tend to talk out of turn or without permission. Today, I share the book My Mouth is a Volcano by Julia Cook. This is a great book to use to discuss listening respectfully and getting permission to speak.
