Thanks for the compliment and the follow. I’d be happy to take a look and consider it.
There’s really no way to know that at this point but I’m eager to find out.
Some talking points from the panels:
- Beckham hopes to actually have some offense this year
- Dunn is looking for less boos
- Robin says Paulie definitely will not be batting lead-off
- Lots of DeAza talk
The boys all seem to already have great respect for Robin as a coach which is great to see. As a young team, there’s more pressure but also time to create good habits. Hopefully it’ll all work together for a good season.
A fellow tumblr teacher asked me about some websites I use for teaching ideas. These are a few of my favorites. Keep in mind that we’re both in Kindergarten.
- http://candokinders.blogspot.com/ Can Do Kinders - Lots of great ideas and even better, lots of great freebies. I use a lot of her things for Centers and she puts up some great holiday stuff too. Check out her cute Groundhog Day stuff for this Thursday!
- http://mrsleeskinderkids.blogspot.com/ Mrs. Lee’s Kinder Kids - More ideas for Centers as well as great unit ideas. She’s done units that I’ve done and some I never even thought of but am considering for future use. She also uses ideas from other Kinder blogs so I like checking those out too.
- http://www.mrswillskindergarten.com/ Mrs. Wills Kindergarten - I like that she posts her plans. I often compare them to where my own kids are and the pacing.
- http://www.classroomfreebies.com/ Classroom Freebies - A mecca of all things free. I started tracking this collection through Pinterest but just hit up the blog now. Any blog for any grade level can contribute so sometimes the tasks aren’t Kinder appropriate but I’ve found lots of good sites and ideas here. If I need to find something quickly, I start here. My friends in other grade levels always get links from here from me if I see something I think they could use as I scroll past.
- http://growingkinders.blogspot.com/ Growing Kinders - The first blog I found. I can’t even remember how. She gives lots of great Center ideas as well as spectacular organization ideas as well. I used a lot of them as I was getting my Center groups in order at the beginning of the year. I also thank her for posting about the personal laminator. Santa brought me one and I love it. Also, freebies!
- http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/ Teachers Pay Teachers - This isn’t a blog but rather a site where teachers sell their creations. Not only can you get great ideas if you don’t want to shell out the money (though it does go to a teacher which is much nicer than a store) but it has thousands of free pages. Sign up is free and I’ve lost many hours perusing the site. You’re able to narrow down searches by subject and grade but there are still so many things to look through. Completely worth it to sign up.
Hope you guys can use some of these places for some great new ideas! Happy teaching!
