A great classroom management idea at the end of the year

What the Teacher Wants!: Management Monday: End of the Year Behavior!: "Being in year round school {we're in school until July}, this time of the year is very difficult for my students {and me too}. The tradition..."

Only 4 more days of school!

With only four more days of school left of the school year, I am looking back over all that we have accomplished and planning ahead for all that needs to get done for next year.  I think this would be a wonderful time for my students to reflect back on their third grade year to share with a student entering my class next year and to look to their future.  Here a few activities that I have planned to do with my students to do just that!

Some AMAZING teacher blogs!

Over the past few weeks, I have stumbled across some amazing websites and blogs that have been the fire and inspiration within me to a better teacher.  I thought I would start by making a list of these wonderful places so that you can begin feeling inspired as well.
There are more that I will have to come back and add later, but this is a good start.  These are the sites and blogs I have frequented most often in the past few weeks.

Welcome to my new teacher blog!

I have been inspired by some very amazing teachers all around the world.  I figured it was finally my turn to take a stab at this.  My hopes for this blog is to share ideas that I find and make with other teachers out there looking to spice up their teaching. 

Thank you for visiting and I hope someday I will be able to inspire you as well! :)
