New School Year Resolutions Linky Party

I think as teachers we all make "New School Year Resolutions". I'm forever saying "Next year, I'm doing this different". or "Seriously....What was I thinking????? Next year, I'm not doing this at all!" Ha! Ha! But My School Year Resolutions are always ongoing. I'm always looking for a better way to do just about anything! That's one reason I LOVE stalking teacher blogs!

Stop on over at:

Clutter-Free Classroom

to read other great Blogger's resolutions and maybe post some of your own!

To start it off......I am going to hopefully:

1. Successfully incorporate all of the wonderful ideas I received from the Debbie Diller's Math Work Stations book study this summer. (Anchor Charts, I Can charts, etc.)

2. Revamp my Daily 5 and Cafe Literacy Work Stations with Anchor Carts and I Can Charts.

3. Incorporate more writing activities in my Work Stations and lessons.

4. Remain positive and encourage positive attitudes.

I will add more as I think of could go into the hundreds! Ha! Ha!

This is my life as I know it right now....

Things My Teacher Says.......

I'm famous for saying to a student who has a microscopic cut on their finger,:(I make like I'm talking on a phone with my finger and thumb...)Let's call 9 whaa whaa for the whaambulance! Maybe they can stop on the way and get you a whaamburger with the french cries! Always in a joking manner! LOL! The kids LOVE when I do this....I would never say this if their feelings were going to be hurt....

Postcard Exchange!

I'm so excited! I've been picked to represent the State of Virginia in this awesome postcard exchange! What an experience it will be for my students next Fall!

A postcard exchange is where 50 teachers (one from each of our great states) agrees to have their students write and mail the postcards out to the other participants.
