I am joining Kim for her first linking party over at Joy in 6th Grade! This is such a great idea! We are to list things we will DEFINITELY do next year.
1. I have LOVED Collaboration Cuties and Jivey's Mentor Text post so much that this is one new thing I am going to implement next year. The best part is being able to refer back to their post for a starting point and reference but they have already given me a ton of ideas on what text to use and how to use them. I am so set on implementing this I have already purchased Jivey's Mentor Text pack.
2. I have been wanting to change up my math instruction to allow for a spiral review, and what better way than with Math Workshop. I have been pinning and reading several blog post for ideas and inspiration.
3. This year has been a difficult one, and that is putting it nicely! Next year I am going to remind myself to just breathe through the headaches and frustrations. The upcoming 4th graders are not a "rough" bunch so I am looking forward to a year where I can relax and enjoy teaching again.
Testing starts tomorrow for us, FINALLY! Prayer will be in school these days while I walk around and monitor my students, I will be praying they stay focused and making smart decisions :)
