So I have become completely obsessed with this whole teaching blog concept. I find myself spending so many hours checking on other people's blog posts, looking for other great blogs out there, and thinking about what I can blog about next.... I started thinking it would be something fun to do other than sitting and writing lesson plans while I watch football with my husband or watch my husband play x-box football but it has become so much more than that!!! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to get some more followers because I can't wait to share what I have planned for the year with people! If anyone has any suggestions/pointers on how you have gotten so many I would love to hear it!
So here is what has been going on with me...
I have been working a day camp full time since the day after school ended until this Friday... ahhhhh! I have not had much time to get to my classroom or much time to work on things here at my home. I have gotten some things started but not enough to feel very productive.
I have so many things on my mind that I want to do and create but there just don't seem to be enough hours in the day. Teaching kiddos with special needs can be difficult when it comes to planning. I havent gotten to create too many fun units with them but I am hoping to try and do that some more this year. Last year I constantly felt like I was playing catch-up due to being hired late in the year and so I never got to create any really fun ideas. After reading all your blogs, I am so inspired to try and make that my focus this year!
I do a lot of data collecting and progress monitoring and I am currently working on making this easily accessible to myself, my kids, and their teachers and parents. Some examples of this are to come... As soon as I figure out how to let Google Docs use my downloaded-fun-fonts!
Thanks for listening to a few of the millions of things going on in my head currently... :)
