The last day of 2012? What happened to the year? Where did it go? It's 2013 tomorrow? Already?
I can't believe it. But I'm jumping into 2013 with plans for a great year ahead. I've got loads of ideas for school, want to spend lots of good times with friends, and my husband is still planning to open his restaurant. Here's to a busy, wonderful year ahead!
So I'm linking up with Michelle for
The part of this that surprises me the most in the Classroom Must Go. Yesterday I spent some time at school and found myself thinking that I might get rid of my desk. I find myself sitting at my reading table after school instead of at my desk, so why not? I'll need to reorganize my reading area a bit, but I might really open up some space if I get rid of my desk. Hmmmm.... I've read several posts from other teachers who've gotten rid of their desks and are very happy they did. That just might be in my future.
The Technology Focus was hard to come up with. I have 4 older computers, a projector, and document camera. We go to the computer lab once a week too. I really want to find a way for kids to publish their writing using the computer (common core!). Sure am wishing I had a smart board, ipads, etc. But there's got to be a better way to use what I have. Any ideas?
And I have to stop putting aside fitness when I'm tired and have lots to do. That happens far too often and I'm sure it does for lots of other people to.

Hope you have a very happy and wonderful New Year's celebration! Be safe! I'm off to blogstalk some more.
Bye for now,
