Today is the last Tell All Tuesday for the summer, which means summer is flying by at a pace much too fast for our liking. Angie and I both would love a pause button this time of year to let us soak up these last few precious weeks of summer. We have both been enjoying this fun summer linky party with Teach Talk Inspire and My Day In K, and it will be sad not to be able to participate during the school year.
This week’s final Tell All Tuesday theme is a wish, a goal, and a dream for the upcoming school year. I really love this theme because it gave us the opportunity to reflect on the year in front of us. Here is what we came up with!
For the 2015-2016 school year our wish is a smooth transition for our students as well as us, being in a new classroom at a new school. Change can be difficult sometimes and though we are very excited about our new classroom and new school, it will be an adjustment for everyone at first. Some of our students from last year are coming with us to our new school. For both the returning students and the new faces who will call our room home we just wish they would have a smooth and easy transition into the new school year.
As for Angie and myself, we wish for a smooth transition as we get used to a new school. Every school does things a little bit differently, and so we hope we can quickly and easily navigate our way through our new home.
Our goal for this year is to touch the lives of each student and give them a great first experience in school. Because we teach such young children we are typically the first teachers they ever have. This can sometimes come with a lot of pressure as we want to offer every child a wonderful school experience. We both want all of our kids to be excited about learning. Over the course of the school year we strive to help each child discover a love of school.
Our dream for this school year is that we would receive some new technology for our classroom. Technology is an ever-changing world and it can be difficult at times to keep up with the newest software and devices. Though we are limited in terms of budget and resources, we have big dreams of what we could do with new technology. We are hoping to get a donors choose going in the near future to help us achieve our dream!
That wraps up our wish, goal, and dream for the new year, and the final Tell All Tuesday for summer 2015. We want to say thank you to Teach Talk Inspire and My Day In K for hosting this linky party. It’s been so much fun to share with everyone this summer and we look forward to participating next summer as well!
