My toddler barely slept last night. I was up with him three times. He was sick this weekend but was on the road to recovery or so I thought. I went ahead and took a family illness day. I made plans at 4:30 this morning and even managed to slap some make-up on and appear presentable at 8 so I could be there for class pictures. I ran home to be with my little man before my hubs had to get to his teaching job.
That being said I was just hit with a bean bag. Someone is up and running around the house while I type. During his first little nap I was able to get a few things finished. Then I started thinking ahead to next year. I know...I know....we still have 40 days left in this school year. But I can't help it. This warm, beautiful weather has me thinking about summer and all of the things I need to do to get ready for next year. Then I start thinking about the changes I want to make. Then I start freaking out because school is going to start in August! That's when I grabbed an iced coffee and start doing what I can while telling myself to calm down.
So while my little man plays with his cars I put together a few things for my new THEME next year...SUPERHEROES!
My NEW Daily Five Posters
My NEW EEKK Poster
Next year I want to do a better job of setting classroom norms with my students. I will still keep my 5 rules but I want to try setting the norms with my class. I did some research and for those of you who are unfamiliar with norms (as I was) they can be defined as accustomed ways of perceiving, believing, evaluation, and acting in an environment.
I am working on a set of posters for the norms. But I think it is time to go and play cars with my little man!
