Oh dear, I sort of disappeared, didn't I? I wish I had a good reason, but I was really just having a wonderful, fun summer. I spent lots of time with my little dog, went to the beach, went to the pool, cooked good food, saw movies, traveled (to Tel Aviv and the Bahamas), quilted, read good books, and just relaxed. None of it seemed worthy of blogging about, but it has all made me so relaxed and ready for this next year of school.
Between all of my adventures and decadent time off, I did put a lot of time into this school year. I worked 4 weeks of summer school and stayed late every day of summer school to get things ready for this new school year. Because I span kindergarten and first grade, half of my students are familiar faces and getting their materials ready was fairly easy since I know the curriculum and I know them. I got to meet a few of my kindergarten faces during summer school so I feel somewhat prepared for them. I made picture schedules, collected fidgets, and spoke to all of my colleagues about their needs. Tomorrow will be the true test of how well prepared I really am.........
Anyhow, I'm back to my blogging. I'll take lots of pictures this year so that I can share all of my ideas with you.
Happy 2013-14 School Year!!!
