As teachers, I think we are always thinking ahead and planning ahead! I know that I haven't even finished this year and I've already started working on things for next year! So, this was the perfect linky to join! Finding JOY in 6th Grade is hosting a "What Will YOU Do Differently?" linky!
Since I am looping up to teach 5th grade next year, I will most definitely be learning new standards and teaching all new things! We are also implementing Common Core standards in Reading and Math AND adopting a new Math book! Eeeeekkkkk!I am looking for new read-aloud's and have some great ones on my list! With looping up, I had to get read aloud's that will be new next year. I have found some great ones, but am always looking for more! I also hope to read literature related to Social Studies, such as Number the Stars!
Next year, I am changing the way I keep student data. This year I had a student binder with a tab for each student. It just didn't work for me. Next year I am using manila folders for each student. These folders will house beginning of the year data, parent communication log, SIP and BIP data, and tardy slips. My plan is to tape/glue a library pocket in each folder for tardy slips. I think this will work better for me!
