Resolutions, Link Party, and a Shout out!

On Friday class list were posted and I was just as excited as the students!!!! I have a wonderful group of students and I am really looking forward to the first day of school!! Only 15 days away!!! I have a few projects to post tomorrow for Monday Made It!  Amanda from Teaching Maddeness gave me a shout out and it made my week! She has been so encouraging and its so fun to make blogging friends!  I'm a little late but I am joining her New {School} Year Resolution Linky Party!!

Resolution #1: Spend time with Co-workers!!!  I have the opportunity to work with a great group of teachers not only in First grade but through out the building!  We get so busy throughout the school year that many times we don't take time to even speak when passing through the hall!  My goals is to take time out of the busy day to check in with teachers outside of the first grade hall and to spend time outside of school!! A few of us are planning Teachers night out once a month for whoever is available!!

Resolution #2: Stay organized!! I have worked really hard to organize my classroom and now the work begins of staying organized!   One way is to clean off my desk every afternoon and spend more time on preparation instead of procrastination!

Resolution #3: Taking pictures and making a memory album! In order to reach this goal I need to delegate to home room moms to take pictures for special projects and field trips! I want to make a memory album at the end of the year for parents to purchase through shutterfly! (I wish I was rich enough to buy one for each student!)

Resolution #4: In God we trust but for everyone else we must take data!!  This is a quote that I love and plan to post on my binder for student assessment!  Maintaining organization with students assessments is an art that I am still perfecting!

There are several great linky parties going around and this is a great one so link up if you have resolutions for this school year!!

I am brainstorming on my first giveaway once I reach 25 followers and I only need one more!!!!

Looking forward to posting tomorrow for Monday Made it after completing my fist day of CGI year 2!! Are there any other bloggers who are going through the CGI program??
