We started off the month by making these cute footprint trees. I try to make something with footprints or handprints each month. I think it's a good record of how much students grow during the year.
Now that 2012 is coming to an end, I have began thinking about my goals for 2013. My number one goal is to get more organized at home. It seems that I have one idea where things belong and my hubby as another idea. We need to get on the same page and get with the program if we ever want to get ourselves organized. My classroom could use a little more organizing too since I moved into a different room this year. Let's just say I am the happiest ever teaching at my new school, but I do miss my old friends.
My number one school goal for 2013 is to focus more on writing. I just don't feel like I am giving it my all when it comes to teaching students to write. I will be looking for new ways to add in some writing where I can. If you have any ideas, I would love to hear from you so leave me a comment and Happy New Year!
