Welcome back to Reflect and Refresh. In Part 1 of this 2 part series, we talked about Looking Back on the school year and what we thought worked well and things we wish we'd have done. We're on to Part 2 now and talking about Looking Forward to the new school year with things we want to try or things we will continue doing this school year.
color coding everything in my classroom to make transitions easier and to make my student's school lives easier. And it worked, and I don't know why I didn't do it sooner. So I want to continue color coding my classroom.
Content - One thing I wished I had done last school year was collaborate more with the general ed teachers, so in the spirit of looking forward, I definitely want to do that more. I'm the Sped Team Leader this year (YAY!) so knowing who the team leaders are for sure will help with that!
One thing I do want to work on one day this week is separating the "teacher" books from the classroom library. I purchased these white Ikea book boxes (that you can see are all lined up on my shelf) and plan on using one for each month. I've labeled each box for each month of the year, that way when October comes, I can just quickly grab the October book bin and share books with my students during Reading Circle. I'll store them in one of my closets for safe keeping.
What are you Looking Forward to this school year?
