It's Been Awhile

So I haven't blogged in a long time and I have felt kind of lost without it. I haven't even been reading other teaching blogs! Zip Zero NOTHING since November! I feel like I've been unmotivated this school year took a lot out of me emotionally. I adjusted to a new school with a different type of child that what I have encountered in the past. I think I lost my fire this past year and I'm going to try to reignite that fire this year. I'm looking forward to a new crop of kids and I've changed from my fireflies back to my Monsters. They made me smile so much in the past so I'm going to try again. The bad news is, is that Mardels decided to discontinue carrying a lot of the Trend Furry Friends Items that they had. The good news is, is that now I'm creating a lot of things that I will share with you! I'm going to be adding more here and there but I thought I would start with something simple and basic for my first post back.
We use the smaller envelopes to send home report cards in every six weeks. We laminate these and put these on the back. Once the parent has viewed the report card they sign the sheet next to the number of the six weeks that it is, and return the envelope. Then it's ready to send home the next 6 weeks. Yes it's something to keep up with but it is a way to CYB (cover your booty). With the first six weeks report card I also remind parents that a great way to keep track of their child's progress is by signing up for the Parent Portal then they can view their child's grades and keep up with it much easier! I will be sure and post more goodies later and hopefully share some of my insights from the past year. I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
