  2. Oh... and my recommendation.... If something isn't working for you, don't be afraid to change it. You don't have to wait until next year to implement new routines/expectations/etc.

    1. I forget this all the time, and always leave things until the next term, or year! Great advice - thanks!!

  3. WOOHOO! Everything looks great. I noticed the changes earlier this week. I'm not sure if I left a comment or not. All of my days are running together. I think you should try Edmodo in your class this year if you don't already. I love everything that Edmodo has to offer including being able to store links to websites, videos, etc. for the students to go back and access at any time in the class 'library'. It is so very helpful!

  4. Hmm.... Something new to try in your class this year... if you use IPads in the classroom a great behavior app is Class Dojo. Thanks! kindercards@gmail.com

  6. Read to you students every day...either a novel or picture books. During National Poetry Month, I like to read at least one poem a day to them!

    1. I think National Poetry Month must be an America thing - we don't have that here in New Zealand! Absolutely love reading to my kids though! I tend to forget towards the end of the year, and need to get way better at being consistent with this!! Thanks!!

    1. Thanks!! I'm totally in love with it!

      I (fingers crossed) am getting some ipads in my classroom this year!! I'm trying really hard not to get too excited, as our school has a bad habit of promising one thing and then putting it off for ages. My buddy teacher was supposed to have them last year, but it didn't happen - hopefully this year!!
      excitement plus!!

  8. I agree with Rose that you should read to your kids every day....which is something I need to continue to remind myself! Also, make sure that you and the kids laugh every day!

    I have tried Edmodo, it is pretty cool if you can make it work for you!

    Good luck!

    1. Thanks Elizabeth! I had a quick look at edmodo - but not sure if it will work with my kids as most of them don't have access to the internet. Will still give it a go!
      All good about the share - I saw it :)

  12. Hi! Your blog looks wonderful! I have my students work on character education lots. We use tear tabs and surprise one another with lovely messages, especially on Valentine's Day! Thank you for the giveaway opportunity!

  13. I'd say plan ahead for lessons and STICK with it. I tend to change my plans once I see cute/creative stuff on blog posts/TpT/Pinterest... So I'm going to try to stick to my original plans as my New Year's Resolution!
