You were a very good year for me! I have been teaching reading for a year. I started 2016 in an elementary school and I am ending it at a middle school. Both jobs have been wonderful, but I am LOVING the middle school setting! I went on a nice vacation. I added to my certification and now have a certificate in Childhood Special Education.
I feel like the past few years have flown by and I want life to slow down.
Here's hoping 2017 is a wonderful one!
I had a busy week at school. We had a spirit week. We ended the week with "minute to win it" games which a lot of fun. I did a lot of readings about different holidays in countries around the world. I found some great no prep packets on TPT.
One day was "Kindness on a Post-it Note Day. I was sneaky and wrote notes on various lockers. Later in the day I found this stuffed in my teacher bin that I carry from class to class. I know it is from a kiddo because of the grammar mistake:
Here is another product I found on one of the teacher newsletters I get weekly. I had the students take turns writing the words on the white board during my small group class.
I took my Mom to tea:
Seriously, I saw this in Target the DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS! WHY?
I have not thought about work while on break. The week goes so fast, that I am trying to read some holiday books and just relax. It has been a nice break! I wish it was longer!
I am still working. Here in New York, the teachers work until Friday. There are a lot of fun events at my middle school this week. We have spirit week and a fun assembly on Friday. I hope to take some fun pictures to share next weekend!
Here is my finished door:
This is about as creative as I can manage.
As I tell my husband - I am creative just not artistic. LOL !
I noticed a lot of my blogger friends are already on their holiday break! I am a little envious!
