My new blog :)

Hi Followers!

I will still be using newTeachrtips on occasion (in the Teaching tools or My First Year Teaching pages) but I will mainly be posting on my new site called Hannah’s Happenings – it is where I will talk about my life experiences with my cat, music, food, my teaching jobs, general reflections, and working out! Since it is a new blog and has one follower (who is myself!), I wanted to do a post to draw you all from this blog to PLEASE follow my new one 🙂

Currently categorizing centers (213 out of 365) #blogaday

While sorting through the books in my supply closet, I found this one book about learning centers called “120 learning center activities.” It is from Scholastic and focuses on science – I have started looking through it for the first couple units on Food and All About Me. I discovered one about seeing how your teeth work with different foods that I would love to run by my co-teacher and see what supplies I might need! Books like these are very handy to help you come up with ideas when you are starting out because you might not have creative ideas at the beginning of your career. I look forward to taking a look at it every couple weeks for learning center choices 🙂

Taking it on as the teacher (212 out of 365) #blogaday

Tomorrow, I start the first day as the teacher in the Pre-K room! It will be nerve-wracking, but a good chance for me to find myself as a teacher. There is a low number of kids so it should be easier to figure out behavior management strategies that work best. I’m coming in early, which will allow me to can look over the materials in the unit about Food, and make sure the centers and books are setup.

A bunch of blogs! (157 out of 365) #blogaday

After about 6 months in the blogging world, I thought I would broaden my interests for blogs I follow. I used to stay tame with what my blog was about – following fellow teachers, children’s reading as well as writing, and education. From browsing the “recommended blogs,” I now follow blogs about DIY, music, book reviews, cute videos, food, culture (Nairobi women, African elephants), and homemade comics. It is really fun to look at other people’s blogs and interests because I am becoming more interested in their hobbies. I feel the connection of the blogging universe ha! I still can’t believe that I have over 200 followers 🙂 This #blogaday challenge has helped me stick with something and make it part of my routine every day. Creating a blog was a great somewhat spur of the moment idea.
