3 Things- Linky Party

Simply Second Resources is having a 3 Things Linky Party!  Head on over there to share the 3 things that you hope to focus on this school year.

My Word Wall-  My word wall has been my main focus this summer.  I loved where I had it, the whole back wall, but the students couldn't reach it... so it wasn't as interactive and I would have liked it to be. I have now moved it... and all though it isn't as spread out as it use to be, I am excited that I will be able to encourage more engaging activities using it.

Reading-  I think this will always be one of my three things to work on.  Reading is always changing!  I have finished the Daily 5 early this summer... so I look forward to using it within my classroom. I will have a very small class... so I don't think the time slot that they allowed for will be necessary so I will have to see what I can come up with as far as a schedule.  I would also like to include more readers theaters, and fun creative things like that.

The last one... oh this is hard because I can't narrow it down to just 3... but I will say Technology-  I have come a LONG way last year with using technology... but have come up with so many more ideas I would like to try with the students. I am excited to get going :) If they turn out... I will be sure to post them for your enjoyment and use!


  1. We are both going to work on our word walls and technology. I get so excited about using technology in my classroom.

  2. Ahh I know... I felt bad posting that once I saw what you had but its true! Haha... my word wall was in serious need of a makeover! And technology... you just can't get enough of it! It is so much fun!!!! Can't wait to start sharing more ideas once the year gets going :)

  3. I'm also working on technology! The PTC just granted me an LCD projector and I can't wait to play around with it.
