The Mall-ards Are Coming!!!

The pencils are sharpened, the tables are cleaned, and the cubbies are ready for the brand new backpacks. It is the start of a new school year. The kindergarten students of June are now big August First Graders. They will be looping with us for another exciting year of learning, growing and making new friends. Did I say "us"? Yes, I did! The wonderful news is that Mrs. Dillard and I have joined classes and will be co-teaching this year. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to share our knowledge and give the best that we have to offer to our students. We have decided to mesh our name to "The Mall-ards" so that we now have one identity.
Our school's theme this year is "180 Days Around the World." First Grade's country/continent is Australia. Our classroom is decorated in an "Outback" theme with the some of unique animals native to that awesome country. We can't wait to share what we learn about the "The Land Down Under." We would be delighted to hear from an Australian elementary class that would like to correspond with us. If a teacher is interested, you can get in touch with us via the comment section of the blog.
This blog post will be updated next week with the first day of school pictures, happenings, and adventures. Get ready ...the Mall-ards are coming, the Mall-ards are coming...
