Jessica at A Turn to Learn is having a Back to School Jitters Linky Party and I have joined in with my feelings about the upcoming school year. We do not start until August 27, and the students come on September 4th, but school has surely been on my mind as the days creep closer.
In my previous post I wrote about planning for our new reading curriculum. It's been a source of anxiety for many in my district. I'm sure it will all come together but it doesn't stop the worrying.
During the recent reading training, we also found out that the third graders are expected to be blogging about books. I am psyched for this! Again, I know my students will love it.
I attended the Mickelson/ExxonMobil Teachers Academy this summer, and met many awesome educators. We have a Facebook group, and are constantly messaging each other. I hope to have time to continue those connections.
