The Cornerstone Blog has a great post about New Year’s Resolutions for teachers. We all catch ourselves doing it. You know, saying, “Next year I won’t let *blank* happen!”. But why wait until next year? From The Cornerstone Blog:
“So in light of this, I present the “Not Waiting for a New Year” resolution. What do you want to change NOW in your teaching practice? What thing is so important that you can’t afford to write off this year’s kids and wait for a fresh start in the fall? What’s really pressing for you?”
So head on over and post your New Year’s Resolutions!
My resolution? To give my students more time for independent reading and writing. I have somehow managed to lose focus as the year has moved forward and that independent time has fallen by the wayside. So I will be reworking a few routines and procedures so that I can make that time every day.
