As I sit here and finish working in the classroom today, I am predicting that this year will be my absolute best year with my class. We will learn so much from one another! I know that they will find a love for learning. I hope to instill a love of reading and a sense of community within these walls.
This coming week will be a lot of practicing procedures and learning how to be a Sander's Superstar! We will begin assessments to make sure that as we dive into the standards everyone's goals can be achieved within our workshop model.
My goals as your teacher are: to continue with my own learning, to set an example for you all; read with my class everyday; implement new strategies in reading and writing; post on the blog weekly, if not daily; make everyone feel safe and comfortable; and to ALWAYS have my students' needs come first!
It is going to be a wonderful year and I know we can all be successful in achieving our goals if we work together!
I'll see you Monday, ready to start our adventure together.
