Because I couldn't sleep and I have a little time to waste, I thought I'd fill you in on a few other things in terms of this little blog and the upcoming school year! If you remember ANYTHING from my Monday Made It posts, you'll remember that I am NOT patient. And that goes for things other than waiting for paint to dry or using transfer paper for my vinyl. That whole no-patience thing oozes into other facets of my life including waiting on details for your future. But I guess that's probably normal, right?
Ok, enough. Onto what this post is really about.
I'm linking up with Angie and Ashley for their:
I can't turn my teacher brain off. Well that's a lie- I can when other things fully occupy my mind that excite me, but it's very hard to do willingly. So you bet I've been thinking on things to improve- heck- I've been thinking about things to improve for next year at the start of this past year!
I've kinda broken it down into a few categories: Classroom Environment, Classroom Content, Classroom Teaching (I felt I had to keep the whole "classroom" piece but really, it's a improvement about my teacher practice).
Here is some of the spaces I have. I have completely taken down all labels to start fresh this year and I want to be really thoughtful on what space in the room is housing certain content focuses.
|I was reminded why I don't change out the background and borders of my bulletin boards. These will stay up for another 3 years probably. Ick- I hate that job!|
Be sure to check out how others are looking to improve in the coming year over at Angie or Ashley's blog.
Oh and before I go, a little announcement:
I'm now on
Cue a bit of panic.
I've been putting off venturing to Facebook as it really intimidates me for some reason in terms of using it for my blog and stuff, but with some encouragement from others, I jumped in yesterday. I have to be honest though- it might not see much action for the next few days as EXCITING things are happing here off the internet (remember the beginning of the post.... I told you I can't stop thinking about it all). But hop over there, like my page (if you want to of course), and then be prepared to share and connect with me this school year. I'll be posting a celebratory limited time freebie that will only be announced on my Facebook page after the EXCITEMENT calms down a bit (hopefully in the next couple days).
Thank you to those who have showed me so much love and support over the last month or so- it's been a crazy ride and I can't wait to continue it.
