I have been writing on this blog since November of last year! The daily posts started in January, and I can’t believe how quickly this experience has flown by 😮 I still have over 100 days of the challenge, but the others vanished in a blink so it won’t take much time – reminiscing at the old pictures I posted and the pages that I am no longer writing on (Field placement, Getting through Grad School) is really bringing back memories! It doesn’t feel that long ago when I was in the midst of my masters program, and meeting the second graders for my Fall term observation around this time last year. I will definitely keep up a blog for my teaching experiences and reflecting on my life! It has been a very fun journaling activity, and now I have a record of this time forever online 🙂
The picture below is from the FIRST reflection post during the #blogaday challenge!
This picture is also relevant NOW because the “Traveling Teddy Bear” will be starting in a few weeks, so I will know my date and place for my class’ bear!
As a last graduate school hurrah, one of my friends and I are going to relax by the pool with our books. It doesn’t sound like celebrating, but it will be nice to chat and see each other again before we both have to pack up our places. True friends can simply hang out without the need to do anything spectacular. I still can’t believe grad school is over! I’ll be working on my final paper later today or tomorrow, and packing up my apartment soon. This will probably be my last “Getting through grad school” post!
This weekend, I realized that my grad school friends are going to be great teachers because they love being big kids! It is my birthday, and I am throwing a boardgame night – everyone is very excited to play charades, Taboo, and card games! It is something that brings us back to our inner children and competitiveness 🙂 I enjoyed their reactions as adults to playing fun games. As teachers, we want to always have games in our pockets for “free” time at the end of the day or before recess.
