The Mondayest Monday Ever

One of the most fun things about being a teacher is being able to share with them the magic of the holiday season. Gunner’s elf “Caden” traveled to school with me to meet my lively group of 23 kindergarteners. We read the elf on the shelf story, and the students came up with name ideas for the classroom else (who also happens to be Gunner’s elf, but he doesn’t have to know that haha).  As you can see they came up with some interesting names, but ultimately Trixie was the winner!

I truly do like the name. And I have to say that it is a much better choice than the name chosen for our classroom fish, “Vitamin Fasty.”

Today had to be the Mondayest Monday on record. I woke up to my poor aide texting me that she had the flu, and of course, my students (who are already a particularly lively bunch) were even more lively than normal. I forgot about Sienna’s doctor appointment, and Gunner could not take a joke this morning… Anyways, I’m glad it is over!

I hope everyone had a wonderful beginning to the week! Now tell me, how do YOU solve the Monday blues? Feel free to tell me in the comments!
