Teacher Tips

Michelle at Teach 123 is having a linky party! 
This post made me think about all the things I learned from my amazing mentor (Thanks to Barbara Sternowski!!!) and my superb second-grade team.  I could have never done it without them. 

I have learned many 'tips' the hard way, but I guess that is what learning is.  So, here they are...

There are many things I continue to learn each and every day.  Balancing my home life and my job continues to be my struggle.  How do you find balance?

Catching Up

Student-Led Conferences, report cards, profile cards, writing name it... it is all done!
I work in a year-round school (9 weeks on, 3 weeks off).  I am tracked out for the next 3 weeks and planning on doing some real blogging.

So, let's catch up...
- The kids worked on measuring their leaps on  Leap Day
- I get ideas about blogging during the day and then I forget to take pictures (working on that!)
- I created some cute bookmarks made out of paint chips (no pics.)
- We created our version of  Me on the Map (no pics. either!)
- I had a successful observation thanks to fractions and math talk
- Our Student-Led Conferences were a huge success
- Celebrated Read Across America doing some cute crafts.

- Erin from Creating and Teaching is building a new template for my blog.  She has been extremely patient with my bits and pieces of "this is what I want".  I can't wait to see the final product!!

***BTW: I love bullets, ellipses, and parenthesis (maybe that will be my trademark).

Happy Saturday :)
