Hi Scholars!
We have just a few more weeks until school begins.  I am so excited about first grade!! I thought you might enjoy seeing what I looked like when I was in first grade so here is a pic. :)

As I begin setting up our classroom and planning for our first days of first grade, I would like to know...
What are you most excited about for first grade?
What worries you the most about first grade?
