As we wrapped up CRCT this week I found out that next year I will be a KINDERGARTEN teacher! We had a good bit of shuffling occur this week amongst the staff, so I will be going back to my roots.
As I processed this huge change these were the things running through my mind...
YES! I get to do read alouds in my goofy over the top way again and kids will laugh WITH me! ;)
OH NO! I have to pack up and move. Again!
YES! I don't have CRCT looming over me every single day of the school year.
OH NO! I am going to have to laminate and cut out a bunch of stuff!
YES! I get to watch kids move from learning letters and sounds to reading words, writing their own stories. I get to MAKE readers!!!!
OH NO! I will miss literature circles and listening to fluent readers read their own writing to me.
The list goes on and on, back and forth. The bottom line is I love both the little bitties and the "big kids" (our school is pre-K through 3rd) and I have the unique perspective of knowing both ends of the spectrum.
Now, my most DIRE and PRESSING issue is....which Kindergarten blogs do I need to start following and how do I ever begin to weed out the list I'm following now! :)) Seriously, recommend some K blogs to me, especially anyone teaching K in Georgia.
