First day teaching Kinder

I did the majority of the morning today in Kindergarten. The kids were good. I was a little lost only seeing some of the routine once before diving in, but I think I did pretty well. I wasn't as nervous giving it a try as I was with third grade. I'm thinking that's either because I've done this before or that I am more comfortable with the younger kids. I'm not really sure which it is. My teacher sat down with me during our planning time and went over how I did and suggestions on areas to improve in. I felt pretty good about it, so we'll see how the rest of the week goes.

I picked up my graduation packet today and my robe. I am so excited to say that I get 10 tickets to invite people for graduation. This means I've got the 5 for my family, one for Tim and then both sets of grandparents! And I don't even have to worry about seeing if I can get extras. They have a limit on extra tickets anyways...we can only get a max of 2 more tickets on top of our ten. And the morning they are letting people get extra tickets I have a doctors appointment back home, so I wont be able to get them. But it works out perfectly that I get 10 tickets. I couldn't be happier.

I had a chance to sign up for announcements and a class ring, both of which I passed on. It'll be a lot cheaper to make my own announcements, so thats another thing on my list of things to do before I graduate. This will be put behind my applications and portfolio though. And then I wouldn't ever wear my class ring. I like the education department at my school for the most part, but I'm not proud enough of the school to sport a ring. I don't know how much I would wear any school ring since I don't ever wear rings anyways.
