Happy Tuesday!!! I know many of you have headed back to school and I hope you are having an amazing time so far!! I'll be headed back in a few weeks, and I can't stop thinking of all the things that need to get done!!
One way for me to take my mind off of BTS is to link up with my incredibly sweet friends from My Day in K and Teach Talk Inspire! They have hosted this incredibly fun linky all summer, but just like the summer, all good things must come to an end!! Today is the very last installment of Tell All Tuesday!
This week the link up is focused on heading back to school. Many teachers in the Western part of the country have already headed back to school and many more are headed back this week. Along with my fellow East Coasters, we have a few more weeks of summer left. Most places on the East Coast don't go back until after Labor Day! Our state is trying to pass a law that will restrict school from starting until after Labor Day. We shall see if that comes to pass!!
Today's topic is for your classroom or school year, and is titled 'A Goal, A Wish, and A Dream'. There is so very much I want for my kinders and my classroom this year, it's hard to narrow it down!!
I know as teachers we always want the very best for our kiddos. We all have our own hopes and dreams for the classroom, and surprisingly many of our wishes and dreams are very similar!! Great minds think alike!! Here are mine.
A Goal - Organization!! I feel like this is my goal every year, and each year I get a little closer to the level of organization I want. I'm not disorganized by any means, but there is so very much more organization that I want to get done in my room!! I can't wait until I can finally say I am totally and completely organized the way I want to be!!!
A Wish - I want each and every one of my kinders to reach and surpass every goal, educational and otherwise, that they set for themselves. If they want to be able to tie their shoes by the end of the year or if they want to be able to write a short story, I want them to feel successful and accomplished. All I want is for them to make as much growth as they possibly can and be super ready for first grade next year!
A Dream - I know how important kindergarten is. I know that we, as kindergarten teachers, build the foundation of each child's learning and that we have an impact on their feelings towards and about school. I want to instill such a love of learning in each and every single one of my kinders that they will become intrinsically motivated to continue their educations. I want them to keep learning and growing all the way through college, and that each of my Littles will make the very most of their situations. I want the very best for them, and that means they need to most education possible!!
So there's my goals, wishes, and dreams for this year. Swing back over to My Day in K or Teach.Talk.Inspire to see who else has linked up, and you can link up too!
You can still link up for Spotlight Saturday!! It's a Teacher's Show and Tell where you can share your favorite products, activities, resources, tips, ideas, tricks, and everything else that makes classroom life easier or more awesome!!
