I finally feel "with it" enough that I can return to the blogging world! And I sure have missed it! I hope everyone has had a great start to their school year.
Where do I begin.... My transition to 2nd has been interesting. It has been a LOT of work. I feel like a brand new teacher again even though this is my 8th year of teaching. The only problem is when I was a first year teacher, I was living at home with my parents - now I am married, have my own house and have 2 kids! Definitely not as much time to put into my classroom. So my lifesaver so far, other than my wonderful collegues and supportive family, has been teacherspayteachers.com. Who doesn't love this site?!?! A huge thank you to those who post these awesome resources on there! I have found math games and activities for every single lesson so far! And so much more... Babbling Abby at the Inspired Apple had a wonderful unit to start my year with my class. And I've found so many sports themed activities that I can't even begin to list. I just wish I had the creativity that they all do! But I'm willing to borrow and purchase my way through this school year...
I'm hoping to get pictures up soon, but I need to at least get them on my class website first. We've been busy little allstars! Here's a little peek of what we studied in September - any guesses?
Have a great weekend. A special shout out to Christopher Columbus for giving us this extra day off on Monday!
