Thoughts on Thursday: Resolutions!

Yes, I'm alive, although it doesn't seem like it! It has been awhile since I've been on here, and there have been many life and school reasons for it. We all know how that is.

Today I'm joining Pelicans and Pipsqueaks and Tech and Teachability for Thoughts on Thursday. This month is all about resolutions.  I try to keep my resolutions reasonable so I don't fail right off the bat, so here goes.

1. Be more purposeful in planning. This year, I moved to third grade after several years in kinder. It has taken me awhile (as in still learning) to learn what my third graders most need, but now I am much more comfortable with planning with a purpose in mind. We go back on January 9th, and I am going in with a much clearer game plan with regards to planning. I also ordered this beauty ⇓ from Berteau and Co., and can't wait to start using it.

2. Spend more time on my TPT store. I've neglected my poor baby. I really enjoy creating, so I would love to dedicate more time to making my resources. I spent a lot of time over break creating, so I am excited to make this a priority in 2017.

3. Have fun. I've spent too much time being stressed. Even my kids notice. That kills me. I am determined to find a way to bring more joy into our room to benefit everyone. I am determined to do more in my life that brings me joy. I know I can't control everything, and stress happens, but I want to try to have less of it hanging around.

What are your resolutions?


  1. Such great goals for the new year. I'm also trying to plan better and I've been at this for 15 years! I hope you have a great rest of the school year!
