Hey blog buddies! Tomorrow we have an abbreviated day and then I'm on summer break!! WAHOO!! Is it totally CRAZY that my mind is already thinking about next year and my new group of little kiddies that I will be welcoming in next school year??? Because that is EXACTLY what I am doing! haha
I am considering grouping my kids in groups of 4... and naming the groups. Has anyone else done this in first and been successful with it??? Any pros/cons?? One of the second grade teachers at my school does and she likes it.... however she doesn't do it until after Christmas. I was wanting to start out with it. She names her groups based on what they are learning.... for example if it's shapes then she might have a pyramid group, a cube group, etc. Thought it was a cute idea of naming them. She even has them little group competitions sometimes. So I'm liking the idea of groups.. just wondering if it would be good in first or not.
Also.... I am wanting to tackle centers next year. If anyone has any good center ideas or routines, etc I would LOVE to hear them!!!
On a side note the month of May has been very good to me! I graduated and got my Master of Arts degree in Instructional Leadership! AND got tenure!! whoot whoot!!!!!!!!!! I also had a VERY successful yard sale last weekend with my gal pal Steph.
Happy almost weekend...
