I'm not so good with resolutions, so luckily I found Michelle's linky party on her blog, Making It As A Middle School Teacher!
I'm all about looking ahead...sometimes I have to remind myself to slow down and live in the moment! This was the perfect linky party for me....
Let me explain a few of these!
Personal Read: I am rereading Little Women. It even sounds weird when I type it, but it's been fun revisiting such a great book. :-)
Life Event: We actually celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary last summer. But we decided to save up and take a trip that would be adventurous and super-fun! So, it's combined with...
Vacation: We are going to Iceland! I know that sounds weird too...but I highly recommend googling some images of Iceland, and then you will probably see why we are heading there! Plus? They have some AH.MAZ.ING. hot springs. 'Nuff said.
Professional Goal: I am tired of the distractions that bombard me that have nothing to actually do with my class of 4th graders. I am going to work really hard to prioritize them and their needs above other extraneous nonsense.
Personal Goal: "Expand my horizons" sounds SO cheesy! But, I mean it. This goal started in 2012 when my husband bought a Groupon for a paint-and-sip class on a whim. Since then, we have been looking for new and interesting ways to step outside our comfort zone and learn more about our world. Next up? Swing dance lessons! And scuba classes! Woohoo!
Favorite Upcoming Lesson: Geometry tends to be one of my favorite subjects to teach in math...I love that kids who might struggle in other areas of mathematics can really shine here. We always start by sorting, comparing and contrasting shapes to determine the attributes that each one has or must have. On that note...I finally put something for sale in my TpT store.
I am super excited...and way nervous at the same time! I put together some shape cards with ideas for activities and a couple of graphic organizers. It's for sale in my store right now. If you are getting ready to teach 2D Geometry, go check it out and see if you might be able to use it. :-) Just click the picture below...
|PS This will be on sale, in honor of the New Year, starting today!|
Ok...I think that about covers looking ahead...bring on 2013!
Don't forget to go link up with Michelle and share what you are looking forward to as well!
