I'm linking up with Jennifer over at Rowdy in 1st grade today to tell you all something good.
We are all in full on school-mode by now...some a little more routined than others...and today being the official mark of one week in school I am feeling mostly excited, which is a welcome change from how I felt this time last year.
It is hard for me to believe that I am in my 6th year of teaching already, uhhhhhh, when did I get so old?! My 10 year High School Reunion is this year, yikes!
Anyway, I am trying out so many new things in my classroom, on top of learning and integrating the CCSS, that I am so very thankful to have an eager and kind group of 2nd graders (and parents I might
add!). So although I am busy, and my desk space has never been so messy, I am still excited for this year. Truly excited!
Something good happening in my classroom:
My students are LOVING all the GLAD stuff I have used in my classroom so far. By far the TPR (Total Physical Responses) are the favorite...with the Team Points in a close second. Today we were reprocessing our Here, There chant and as I was standing there doing all the (sort of silly) TPRs, ALLLLL of my students were engaged, excited and totally into it! Even the student who does almost nothing all day except peel and pick at his pencil. Yeesh, I need to figure something special out for that one!
Something good happening at home:
I am 3 THREE THREE followers away from having 100 followers! YYYYEEEEEEEEEEE!! I can't believe it! I will definitely be doing a give away, so get ready my blogging friends!
Link up! Share something good!
