Clutter-Free Classroom one of my favorite blogs is having a linky party set up to make resolutions for the upcoming school year. Here are my resolutions:
1. BE MORE ORGANIZED: Once I started blogging (March) I became much more organized in my classroom because of all the cute labels and ways to stay organized. I want to maintain very organized throughout the year. This really includes my desk, papers, crafting supplies, and miscellaneous supplies that teachers gather. My first step to this is spending time right now carefully organizing everything in my classroom. I feel I'm off to a great start!
2. POETRY JOURNALS: When I taught Kindergarten, I was so good about keeping up with poetry journals but now that I'm in first I feel like I've fallen behind. I really want to incorporate it into my morning meeting and Daily 5. I feel like in the past I've gone through spurts where I implemented poetry but I want this to be ongoing.
3. CALENDAR BOOKS: I confess sometimes calendar can get a little boring! I need to spruce this time up and make it more meaningful through using a calendar book. I just feel like making calendar books is a lot of copies to run off and it might make calendar last too long. I have been looking in Cara's calendar book over at The First Grade Parade and has me convinced I need to bite the bullet and do this!
These are my current resolutions that I'm going to try to stick to for this new school year! I know that it will be slightly overwhelming at times being in a new school. I know trying to learn everything the way my new school does things will be a lot to take in at first so I'm only setting a few goals right now.
