This Year Got a Rewrite

I've been silent for awhile now. It wasn't my plan for this year. I actually had BIG plans for this blog. I had so many blog posts lined up in my head and great things I wanted to happen.

I was super excited and enthusiastic about this school. I was moving to first grade and was thrilled! I've had a few rough years teaching special education and had become very discouraged. A new grade level back at my old school in FL was just what I needed.

I worked so hard in my room. I never got around to my classroom revel post but here are some my favorite parts of my room.

This is my absolute favorite place to be in my room. This rug from Kid Carpet! Everyday I look at it and love it.

I labeled everything! These AR labels can be found here.

 I organized everything, and it made my heart so happy!

I made this awesome AR Points Clip Chart and then realized I forgot the numbers 65 and 70 (it's still hanging BTW).

This bulletin board was so dang cute! Seriously I didn't even know I could love a bulletin board this much. If you love it as much as I do, you should check out Linda Kamp's unit.

School started and it was amazing! I loved these kids as we got to know each other.

We built our reading stamina (graph from The Brown Bag Teacher) and learned to be independent readers.

We did our first science experiment, and the kids thought it was amazing. You can check out A Day in First Grade for this experiment.

 And then it all came to a stop. :( 

During the 2nd week of school, our school got cut a 1st grade teaching position. We also had an open ESE (special education) position that was unfilled. So the principal made the decision to move me from gen ed back to ESE. 

I really, really loved my class. I felt so disappointed. Sending those babies home with a letter in the backpacks and not even being able to say goodbye as their teacher was heart wrenching. Yes, I still see them in the hallway. But it's not the same.

So now, I'm back as a resource teacher for 1st and 2nd grade. I have a sweet, sweet set of boys. But it has been a hard transition. I keep seeing posts about teaching the students you have and not the ones you wish I had. Well, I'm trying.  I'll admit that it hasn't been easy. 

Since my year got a rewrite, I had to give my bulletin board a new look. Thanks to Teaching Special Thinkers for this cute idea and the pencil craft.

 I'm trying to be positive and make the best out of what I've been given. Maybe I'll even make it over to this blog every now and then, too.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear things didn't turned out how you'd hoped and expected...Hopefully it will turn out for the best even though it is difficult right now. Best wishes for a great rest of the year!

  2. Sending you Owl love and hugs, Angelia! As if the move to FL wasn't tough enough... But you're an amazing teacher/woman and will no doubt continue to ROCK in your new Resource position. :)


  3. We have just been able to substantiate all those technical details as mentioned here and and then to moving forward these will proved to be much better. content rewriting services

  5. I remember seeing an information session for the Masters of Business Management program at XYZ University, and I was in awe. I realized straightaway that this was just what I needed to someone write my coursework jump start my career and begin chasing my dream of being a CEO of an international company one day.

  6. This is a platform which brings the scholarship for students that are offered under central government, state government and thus government bodies, and National Scholarship Portal (NSP) has a list of 50 scholarships NSP Portal which totals to some hundreds of Crores, and it is calculated that a total of Rs 2,400 crores scholarship has been provided under NSP to over 110 lakhs applicants.

  7. Childhood classroom memories often evoke a sense of nostalgia and warmth. From playing games with friends during recess to learning new things from teachers, the classroom environment can leave a lasting impact on one's life. If you're planning a trip to Dubai, be sure to check out the various desert safari Dubai deals available, which offer exciting opportunities to explore the city's surrounding desert landscape.

  8. School memories are often filled with moments of friendship, learning, and personal growth. However, managing sales teams can also be a valuable learning experience. Just like how sales commission software helps businesses optimize their commission structures, navigating through group projects and assignments in school teaches students the importance of collaboration and fair compensation. Looking back on school memories, we can appreciate the skills and values that we have learned, both in and out of the classroom.

  9. Discuss the benefits of teaching in a unique environment like a Dubai Desert Safari, such as the opportunity to connect with nature, promote creativity, and provide a hands-on learning experience.
