Some Back to School Encouragement and a Letter/Sound Assessment

As the summer is winding down and teachers are getting ready for a new class of eager kiddos, the to-do lists just keep growing! Take heart my teacher friends, those sweet smiling faces on the first day of school will make all of the preparation worth it. I have reminded myself of this a few times over the past week. I found some great teacher memes that got me smiling!

You know we’ve all been here…

Enjoy the last few weeks of summer, friends. Take some time for yourself and spend some time with the people you love! Everything will get done and your new class will be lucky to have you.  You are going to make a big impact this year 🙂 I always remember Proverbs 22:6. “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
