Kicking off each new school day


TeachThough 30 Day Blog Challenge Prompt:
What is your favorite part of the school day and why?



My favorite part of the school day has got to be the morning as everyone arrives. There is a small window of time where everyone is gearing up for the students to arrive. There is a certain amount of creative tension as we realize that we’re about to kick off another great day of learning and we are quickly putting the finishing touches on whatever lesson we have planned for the day and pulling all our resources together (whether it be a few last minute photo copies, setting up chairs a certain way, or taking some supplies out of storage that we might need).

It remind me of the routine that we go through every time we are about to move our ‘bus’. We warm up the engine for 5-10 minutes. the air pressure builds up, the oil coats various parts of the engine so all systems work smoothly.

I feel that we go through a similar routine at school each morning. Where the whole place is getting ready to launch into another wonderful day of learning and all the systems are oiled up to work well together. And then they (our students) come pouring in and we smoothly take off to a whole new day of promise. You can feel the energy and it makes me smile.
