Whats Ahead 2013-Linky Party!

Gearing up for January and the rest of the school year is both exciting and stressful for me! However, a few days before Christmas break is over, I always enjoy changing a few things in my classroom, creating better and more engaging lessons, and getting as much sleep and relaxation as possible.

I have decided to join Michelle, over at "Making It as a Middle School Teacher," to look at what's ahead in 2013:

Hope I did this correctly....I am still a newbie to linky parties!!!


  1. Hey there! I'm also looking for great iPad apps, so we'll have to share!

  2. I totally need a pencil sharpener! I don't even have an old school one in my room, I rely on my students' if I need one! LOL

  3. I'm so jealous that you get to teach WWII soon! That was my favorite social studies unit when I was teaching 5th grade, but now I'm in fourth and we stop just before the Civil War.
    Best of luck toward reaching your goals in 2013!

  4. Wouldn't it be great if we could just wish away behavior issues. Have a great 2013

    You did it perfectly, by the way. Tropical sounds good to me, too!

  6. I LOVE all of this! Especially the behavior problems having to go!

    And I actually just got a new electronic pencil sharpener for Christmas and I can't wait to set it up in my classroom!

    Jealous of your goal of 80% passing! ... I wish I could shoot that high! :(

    ALSO jealous that you guys have IPADS????? Is that true? If so, i'm actually MORE than jealous!

    Newest follower! :) YAY for 5th grade teachers!

  7. Yes--Our 5th graders were given iPads to use in science and social studies last year from a grant written by our district. We have since been able to keep them and I use them in EVERY subject! I LOVE them too!

    Thanks for being my new follower!!!!
