Learning Something New Happy New Year!
here on Google Drive formally known as google docs. My children at school hear me say "I can't get into your brain but you can open up your brain!" at least a dozen times a week. One of my goals is to teach the children that they are in fact in charge of their learning. I am a facilitator, a hawker, a convincer, a story teller, an encourager, an actor and somehow a teacher! I tell them I have to learn all the time. As a teacher every year is an adventure in learning and I'm not always sure what will work and what will not work. So I must learn, retool and keep at it! January is what is famously known as the light bulb month in our profession. Will I see it flicker and burn in that little learner I have been trying so hard to reach? Or will I need to relearn and reteach again only time will tell! I'm keeping my fingers crossed as I know teachers around the world are. Happy New Year to everyone and here's hoping our hard work is continuing to make difference in the lives of children. Teachers Pay Teachers Store so you will know when the unit is ready.
