I happen to be the worst blogger ever. Seriously… I start every school year with the ambition to blog the whole year. I think I get the push after the restful break and being inspired by other bloggers. Needless to say, I start the year and get a couple decent posts in, then it hits… The sheer exhaustion of teaching kindergarten at the beginning of the year. I must admit I am a pretty lazy person, so when I get home the couch is my reward for a hard day’s work. I get into this rut of “oh I will try to blog tomorrow,” which happens daily. It isn’t until months later that I realize I failed and promise myself to try again next year. EVERY. YEAR. I am not writing this to say it will be different this year because lets be honest, it probably wont be. BUT I am here to say I am not going to stress about it! When I blog, I blog. And I DO want to blog, don’t get me wrong. I love to share my thoughts and connect with other bloggers. I think I will stick with link-ups to get back into the swing of things and slowly dive back in. With that said, my blog might be changing quite a bit. I resigned my teaching position. Yikes! Typing that still brings tears to my eyes. The reason for my resignation? I HAD A BABY!!!! Meet Lacey Lynn Wright: I know I am biased but she is seriously the cutest and sweetest baby in the whole world. I love her more than words can ever describe. I want to be able to spend her early years with her. I will share more on resigning in another post. Though I resigned I will still be in the teaching world and working with Teachers Pay Teachers. (Can I just say THANK GOD for TPT!) I am a little behind in updating my year-to-year products due to maternity leave and some unexpected sicknesses (YUCK!). BUT I finished updating at least one of my products. Let me tell ya, it felt GREAT getting back to sitting at my computer and working. I can’t wait to work some more (if the baby allows it ). My yearly behavior charts are here! I have updated the fonts on it as well which I like. Sorry! I am not sure why this is coming out so blurry. You can get a clear sample at my store. You can find these charts HERE!!!! As always, the entire year from July 2015 – June 2016 is in this packet. Like last year’s charts, they are no longer specific towards the red, yellow, or green behavior system. It is worded in a way that can go with any color chart. You would just have to send a letter home with this at the beginning of the year explaining your classroom’s colors. I hope you enjoy this. It worked wonders in my class. It only took a couple weeks of reviewing the process of filling it out at the end of each day. The kiddos really got the hang of it and loved it themselves. I am planning on creating a post about my behavior management a little closer to the beginning of the school year. Happy teaching!
