Oh my goodness, I cannot believe how long it’s been since I’ve posted. I feel like I’ve abandoned some of you. I’ve tried my hardest to post, but I guess that didn’t work out so well. I pray that this school year it is different. So here we going. (Be warned it’s going to be wordy and full of pictures.)
I totally goofed and didn’t take pictures of my classroom set up at the beginning of the school year. So I’m just going to post pictures from last year’s set up. It is very similar to this year’s.
This year the whole fourth grade team has decided to have a common theme—Around the World. I had purchased a Kids around the World bulletin board a while back, and yay, I finally got a chance to use it. I was able to tie it in nicely with our character trait for the months of August and September.
I am going to wrap up my post with my currently poster. I am linking to Farley’s linky party for the month of October. I’ll explain each statement below the picture.
Listening: To Full Metal Alchemist—I’ve always been into anime and the Asian culture. I am getting my fix by listening to my show while blogging and working on some lesson plans.
Loving: My Erin Condren Lesson Plan Book. This lesson plan book is the most fantastic thing on earth. I’ve been wondering how I survived teaching without one.
Thinking: About next week’s lesson plans. I need to keep up with my lessons planning this year. I have a wedding to attend and I’ve been selected for an accreditation team later in the school year. Planning ahead will be crucial for when I begin requesting subs.
Wanting: Starbuck’s Gingerbread Latte. I am addicted to Starbuck’s seasonal lattes. My kids know this and I’ve had lots of treats from them. You won’t hear me complaining.
Needing: A Personal Assistant & Trainer. OH MY GOODNESS, the paperwork just keeps piling up. I also need to continue working out if I want to be able to fit into my dress for the wedding I’m attending.
Trick: SmartSeat App. This app is fabulous. You can do seating charts, take attendance, and it will even do random selection for any games. If you have access to an iPad, I suggest you look into it. Here is a link.
I guess I’ll give more information on part 2 of this post. And of course, I’ll include some more pictures of student samples. Until next time!!!
