I'm linking up with:
for her Monthly Goals-Back to School Edition!
I still have almost a month to go (I don't go back until August 26th)-but I'm always thinking about what I could do better/different!
Personal: I did pretty good with this one last year-and I want to keep it up! I definitely felt more relaxed with my students last year from previous years-and I think it was because I left a lot of stuff at school and tried not to stress over it.
Organization: I'll be doing some major organizing before school starts (stay tuned!), and I want to keep it that way!
Planning: I plan about three days ahead-so I can change it easily if something happens. I definitely want to stay more on top of that this year-and add in and keep track of the CC standards I teach
Professional: We're (my 4th grade team) are hoping to get approval for a Lucy Calkins workshop-and I think it would be good if we were on the same page with things! We're also piloting 3 different math programs this year-it should be interesting!
Students: My biggest goal is to make learning fun for them and to realize that they can achieve great things
Motto: Everyone needs a little nonsense/fantasy in their lives! Helps with critical thinking ;)
What are your goals?
