Here it is...almost a new school year! I might be excited...

Posted 07-25-2010 at 06:42 PM by pianowoman41

After teaching K for fifteen years, you would think it would be hard to become excited about a new school year! But, amazingly, I am finding it easy to be jazzed up about 2010-2011.
You see, I have spent the past five years helping my hubby build our dream house. This meant nights, weekends, and summers doing everything, and I mean EVERYTHING associated with construction of a non-conventional house. Whew! It was quite a that I am glad to have made, but am glad it's over!
At the end of May, I did a deep clean of my classroom right down to the smallest nook. I pitched old materials that had long passed their expiration date as to relevance to how I teach now. With a spiffy-clean room, a clean desk, and much more space due to editing out large obsolete furniture items, I'm getting that "brand new again" vibe. And I love it!
My newest acquisitions...and highly recommended I might add, are:

"The Next Step in Guided Reading", by Jan Richardson


Whole Brain Teaching (totally positive, fun and energetic management system to get kids excited about learning)

With these new tools and a better handle on how I teach writing and reading, this is going to be an awesome year!

I am beginning to post a few files on my yahoo group site:

I hope to keep some of my most used files there as well as on my own website:

It's bedtime, and here I am at proteacher again Life is good!
