YAHOO TO THE YEAR! (365 out of 365) #blogaday

Wow! My 365 days of blogging has come to an end – so much has happened since I started my winter practicum through graduate school 😮 I have my master’s, a job, live on my own, adopted a cat, and many more! I will love looking back at all my posts and reminiscing about the fun things I found to get my quota of 365!

365 DAYS, 365 DOWN!!

Over the break, I had time to ponder about the fifth graders that I will be part-time teaching next term. I was very nervous to begin with, but knew it was a grade that I could potentially end up teaching in the future – it is important to have a wide range in elementary education. Throughout my undergraduate years, I observed and assisted in first and second grade classes, so I wanted to try the other end of the grades. I was worried about the upper elementary students because I seem to connect quicker with the very young children. However, after catching up with a retired teacher whose classroom I helped in, I started to see the benefits of teaching older students.

Nine left! (356 out of 365) #blogaday

Wow, I cannot believe how close to being done with #blogaday I am! So much has happened in this year, and I have grown as a teacher and as a person. It felt like January 9th was forever away when I started last year but now that it is right around the corner, it is crazy. Time and memories go by way too fast 😮 and I have not written down everything that happened each day, but I picked out interesting parts and have the rest locked away in my brain for the keeping.

This is post (4 of 4) for today in order to catch up for #blogaday.

Holidays now? How? (320 out of 365) #blogaday

Wow, I cannot believe it is already the day before Thanksgiving! I wrote my very first post around this time about the true meaning of the holiday and how to teach it in schools – I only have 45 more days until January 8 when I started the #blogaday 😮 This year is going by so fast and I am thrilled that I got to annotate it through my blog. The holidays will feel a bit different this year though because I don’t really get a break due to my job (just the actual holidays and sometimes, a few days after). I’ll have to get in the spirit through the children at work and on the weekends with family and friends when the festivities get going 🙂
