Well, I am moving out of my classroom into another classroom this next year. It is very sad because I just moved into this room last August. It really become Home Sweet Home to me. I loved all the colors and all the features of my second grade classroom. BUT a new adventure waits for me ... I am moving into the round part of our building and teaching 4th grade next year. It is a little scary for me but I am always up for a challenge. I have taught 1st and 2nd grade for 15 years. I'm hoping 4th grade will be an amazing adventure like my principal thinks it will be. :)
I started working at a golf course for the summer in the clubhouse. I really enjoy interacting with adults. It is a nice change in pace and I am not in charge of anything. YAY!!!! I just come to work, do my job and leave without having to take anything home with me. It's such a nice feeling.
I am changing my theme in my classroom for next year. I am having such a hard time deciding on which theme I want. Here are the three that I am thinking about:
|Polka Dots and Daisies ~ Schoolgirl Style|
|World Traveler ~ Schoolgirl Style|
|County Fair ~ Schoolgirl Style|
I really like all three of these ideas and I may just have to put them together some how. I like the thought of my students traveling with their learning using a Passport and I love the colors with the daisies and the fair. What do you think I should do?
We are selling our house so we did some clean up yesterday outside. What a chore!!! We started working on the sideway, doing the edging, sweeping the dirt and pulling the weeds that have grown through the cracks. It tooks us 2 hours to do only 1/4 of our sidewalk. The edging took the longest because we didn't realize how overgrown the grass had gotten. We really had to work at cutting through that. (We have a corner house so we have a lot of sideway to clean.) More cleaning will happen next week I'm afraid.
I have just started reading Igniting a Passion for Reading by Steven L. Layne. I learned about this book through our Book Fair that we have at school. I was looking at it and saw that the forward was written by Gail Boushey & Joan Moser, "The Sister" so I KNEW it had to be a good book and that I needed to read it.
So far, I have not been disappointed. Hopefully soon I will blog about what I have learned through this book.
I hope you enjoyed reading my post. It is so nice to have the time to read others blogs and to also post without feeling like a need to rush or stay up really late to do it. Enjoy your summer everyone.
Until Next Time,
Happy Blogging, Tammy
