I can't believe it is already time to return to school for a new group of kiddos. My school year will begin on Wednesday, August 17th. I love the fact that, as a teacher, every year is an opportunity for reinvention. Each year, I make mental notations about things that can be improved upon and that I need to remember to adjust for the following year. Sometimes, reinvention is not just a luxury, but a necessity! Some strategies work well with one group of students, but not so well with another.
I am looking forward to these changes, which I have planned for the upcoming year:
- new classroom library procedures
- new daily spiral review math morning work
- independent reading book bags with reading log
- new parent volunteer opportunities
I am sure there will be many more as I get into my classroom and continue planning!
