Mini Conferring Notebook

The school year is approaching FAST.  I only have 4 more days of summer left.  The weather has not been cooperating, but hopefully we can squeeze in one more pool day and a quick trip to Kansas City.  Go Royals!!  

My classroom is about 90% ready for Back To School night which is a week from Monday.  I'm trying to check things of my to do list, but I also keep adding to it.  I think I can. I think I can.  I think I can. 

Today, I worked on my CAFE Conferring Notebook.  I knew I didn't want a great big notebook.  So, I'm using one of those mini three ring binders.  I made a simple student form that fits perfectly.  If you would like a copy just click on the photo above.

Fresh Start

   Wow, it's been forever since I blogged.  I'm so embarrassed that I decided to just make a fresh start.  New Blog, new teaching position and a new attitude.  It's not that I didn't love my former position as a K-8 Reading Resource/ Technology Teacher with Library duties, but it was so random.  Every day, I felt like I was running around in circles.  I'm entering my third year of teaching, but this will be my first real classroom. I'm teaching a 3rd/4th combined classroom at a small Catholic school.  I didn't change schools, which means I know all my kiddos.  Honestly, the kids sold me on the position.  I'm excited and maybe just a little nervous.  My motto is " just smile and teach".  I hope you'll join me on my new adventure.
