I love Linky Parties! Amanda from Teaching Maddeness and Shannon from The Teaching Reef had the same awesome idea, so I am linking up with both of them. Thank you ladies for making me think about my new (school) year resolutions. I am usually no good at keeping a New Year's Resolution but let's see if I am any better at my teacher resolutions.
1. Teaching Techniques: Re-Do my bulletin board using my new "Writer's Eye" and "What Good Readers Do" bulletin board set. (Click on Titles for FREE download) I want to refer to these posters to help my students become better readers and writers. Writnig is my least favorite subject to teach, so I am hoping these writing rules will not only inspire my students but inspire me as well.
2. Organization: For the most part I am already a pretty organized person. At the end of last school year I bought plastic file/storage containers. I put all my holiday files and activities in each bin seperated by month. I am super excited to have a monthly bin to help plan fun activities in class. I would love to make a teacher tool box sometime this school year. I have already made seat crates to help organize my reading center. Here's a picture...I still have one more to make.
3. Student Oriented/Free Topic: Write a Future's Grant (Most of this grant is already typed up, now I just have to revise...This may be one resolution I may follow through with. I also want to be the best Teacher I can be, learn from past experiences, and try something new. I also hope to blog, blog stalk, and download more items to my TpT store.
