I just got back from vacation with my family! I had a great time and really enjoyed seeing my little boy enjoy the sand and the pool! Now it's time to hit the floor running and get ready for a super busy school year! I have so many ideas, just need to start putting them on paper and make them a reality! Not sure when I will be able to get in to my classroom but hopefully that will be happening soon. My goal is to start organizing all of my stuff so that when I take it all into the classroom it will be ready to put on shelves! Am I dreaming?! haha.. What are you all doing now that we are almost done with summer? Any tips on how you get organized and into the classroom for the first time after being gone all summer? Would love to hear!
Today I decided to stop in at the DOLLAR STORE and see what kind of special teacher bargains they put out..and OMG I bought the cutest stuff. They had awesome name tags for my jungle theme! :) I couldn't pass it up! And the best little item that I bought..which I bought for my son...but then realized that I could use it for reading groups was this little magna doodle. I am going to try to post a picture of it. I think what I will do is use that in my reading groups when we are practicing our spelling, etc. Just something different and less smelly then marker and white board activity. Go get them before they are all sold out! :)
I think I could be a little obsessed at reading other people's teaching blogs, so I decided to create my own. I am hopeful that through blogging I will be able to meet other teachers and share ideas. Isn't that what teaching is all about? Sharing ideas with one another?! :) I am excited about learning how to blog and hopefully I can make this blog as cute as all the rest that are out there!!!
I will be teaching 1st grade this year and am super excited! Besides teaching, I have a one year old little boy named Dylan. He keeps me pretty busy all the time! :) I have taught third grade, kindergarten, ESOL and middle school. I am excited to be with the little ones again! :)
