First Day of School

My first day of school went better than expected!!! I used my "stern" tactic, and the kids behaved pretty well overall in my opinion. Anddddddd, I only got called the B word once, well, not to my face anyways. So, I'd say all in all it was a good day. Hopefully, I can say the same tomorrow!

For one of the icebreakers, I had my students tell two truths and a lie. We had to guess which one was the lie. So, I thought I'd do the same on here to break up the monotony of clothes, shoes, shopping, and more shopping:)

Here goes:

1. My favorite book is Pillars of the Earth.
2. I love Lilly Pulitzer!
3. When I was a child, I wanted to be an archaeologist. 


Can YOU guess which one is not the truth?????
