Hi friends, I am sorry I have been gone so long. I hit the ground running when I got back to Texas. I had technology training on Monday and Tuesday and then I went to set my classroom up on Wednesday. After working in my kindergarten room for a few hours, my principal dropped by with a look... Long story short, I am now a third grade teacher again :( We just didn't have enough kids and she didn't want me to get bumped from the building so she proactively switched me back up to third (were I've been the last 7 years) I am SO happy to be back with my team, I seriously love them, but I am bummed to not be a kindergarten teacher. I read and created so much this summer.... I am also a little bit panicked because instead of teaching math and science with an ELA partner, I will be self contained. Yep, that means I teach all subjects and 2 STAAR tests. Boo!
Is it weird that after my initial shock, I was most worried about the fact I had been pinning kinder stuff all summer and therefor did not have adequate pinning time for my third grade adventure?
Needless to say, I have been very busy preparing my new room and trying to get my head where it needs to be. Teacher inservice starts Monday. Yikes!
So, the real question, what should I call my blog? Should I leave it the same and just add a tag line about teaching third? Should I be Kickin it in Third? Should I do something not grade specific in case I get moved again??
My ex teaching partner was moved to second grade and she has a whole Peanuts theme going on this year. She asked me to design her a matching clip chart and how could I say no?? I thought it turned out cute enough to share. If you'd like a copy, I added it to Google Docs. Enjoy!
