This year I have a grade 3/4 combined class. At the end of June it was a 50/50 split, but over the summer, our school had quite a few new registrations, so it looks like my class will be more of a 60/40 split with more grade 3's.
I am really looking forward to this year, more so than in the past. Upon reflection, I think there are a number of reasons for this. First, I'm implementing Daily 5/CAFE this year and am SUPER-excited about that! Secondly, I got a SMARTboard installed in my class and am SUPER-excited about that too! And lastly, but probably the main reason why I am so psyched about this year is due to all of you, my Blogger friends! TRULY... blogging has been the BEST professional development I could do. I have been inspired, energized, and encouraged by all the wonderful educator/bloggers out there...and have come away with so many wonderful ideas and resources.
So...here's to a terrific, teaching year, everyone!
