This year, I hope to:
- Take More Pictures I stole her first one because it's a good one! I want to share all the fun things that I'm doing with my class this year...and remember them for two years from now when I teach second grade again!
- More Parent Communication/Involvement I know a few of the parents that will have a child in my class this year (they don't know who they are yet!) and I know that I will need more opportunities for them to help. I also want to include more positive communication with parents. The school that I am at is (for the most part) middle class families and with some upper and lower mixed in. There are a lot of moms that stay at home and love to help!
- Throw Stuff Away! I am a hoarder of school stuff- I need to throw it or give it away! I need to get rid of all those worksheets and clutter-y things so I can have more of a sense of calm. Hmm...might mean some giveaways for you! Especially since I won't be teaching first grade anymore.
- Write More My focus this year is to improve my writing time. I have a few books I've been reading over the summer and would really like to start a meaningful writing time. It seemed like it was always put on the back burner but my schedule this year allows time for a good chunk of writing.
I'm sure there are a jillion other things I will think of but that's a good list for now!
