People who live with teachers know that summer time is not a time of week after week without a thought of school. It is rare for a day to go by without making at least a mental note of something I want to do when I get back to my class in August.’
In the past several days that I’ve been “on vacation” I’ve accomplished the following:
- Unloaded my car of the bags of materials I’ve brought home to work on this summer
- Laundered all the stuffed animals from the preschool classroom
- Sorted and reshelved teaching magazines and resource books
- Loaded up a box for game making with cardstock, file folders, index cards, markers, pens, stickers, etc.
- Made daily visits to Pinterest to add to my preschool, art, and recipe boards
- Brainstormed and recorded ideas to OneNote pages with ways to connect with parents of preschoolers (Fotobabble, QR codes, blog pages, etc.)
