Why is this year going to be the best year yet? Well, only you can answer that for yourself. For myself, there are several reasons this is the best year yet.
First, I have finished my thesis! Whew! That was a lot of work and it really challenged my brain. More importantly, it was a goal that I didn't think I could reach, but I persevered and completed the task. As I begin this new year, I can work on goal-setting with my students with more enthusiasm and commitment because I have just accomplished a goal that I thought I'd never reach.
Second, I just made my "Best Year Yet" purchase from TpT and saved a ton of money. I just purchased 19 items from TpT. I have to admit that I love the sales. Here is a peek at my new treasures.
I'm not really sure how to do the animated banners, so I thought I would begin with this one. I have been wanting to jazz things up a bit, so I'm pretty excited about this purchase.
I thought I needed some new fall shades for backgrounds, and I like these Rebecca B designs. (By the way, you can click on any of these pictures to go to the TpT stores if you want to purchase them).
Educlips is one of my favorite clip art artists, and I purchased several sets. Since my favorite subject is science, I thought I would feature this little beauty.
Creative Clips is another favorite of mine and I can't seem to get enough borders, so I thought I would try out these great graphics.
I am slowly acquiring Kimberly Geswein fonts, and what better time than when they are on sale?
Although I planned on writing my own curriculum for the Olympics, I ended up purchasing, because others had already created it. Look what I found:
I love watching golf, so I'm going to introduce this sport to my students.
I just love encouraging risk taking and promoting the Growth Mindset, so I have been collecting resources, and here is the one I grabbed today.
Each month we choose a student with a special character trait for student of the month, and I have a difficult time keeping track. Last September, my chart broke and needed replacing. I just had not gotten around to it (too busy researching writing my thesis). Well, yesterday I ran across Mandy Neal's "Caught with Character" and I knew it was time to re-create my Student of the Month Chart. Check out Mandy Neal's Freebie
because they go hand-in-hand, and they are both free!
