My very first project when I started blogging. I made these adorable little pointers that my students use ALL the time! They are SO cute and SO easy!
In February Nash and Mommy started working on letters together (Nash is now in Montessori and absolutely loving school!.
In March Little Miss Emmie turned 2 years old! LOVE that sweet smile!
In April I created some bookmarks to help motivate our Fourth Grade Buddies during Testing!
In May we hatched some ADORABLE chicks. By far my favorite teaching moment ever.
In June I had my hardest teaching/life moment to date. I lost an incredible student the last week of school. I think about this child everyday and he reminds me of the REAL reason that I teach and it has nothing to do with the curriculum.
In July Nash, Emmie, and I spent many hours doing Just.This. I took a break from all things teaching/blogging and escaped to Charleston.
classroom library that I still am oober impressed with.
Math Work Stations!
In October my cuties were Pebbles and Bam Bam!
Sad to say, but about all I did blogging wise in November was create Place Value Scoot.
I think one of the most important things about teaching is being reflective. That is one of the things I LOVE about blogging (aside from reading Kristin's absolutely hilarious posts!). When I write about something, I am forced to think about why it was successful or on some occasions- why it bombed. So in that spirit here are my New Year's Resolutions.
Personally- Be More Organized Around The House. Period.
Professionally- Don't Sweat the Small Stuff. Let me explain- I wish I could be one of those teachers/people that just lets little things go. Nope-not me. I exhaust my husband/friends/teaching partners by talking about it. Not anymore. If it doesn't matter in the big scheme of things... it isn't going to consume me!
