We all make those New Year goals to eat a little cleaner, work out a little more, get a bit more sleep. It is the time of the year when the gyms are packed with people who are looking to turn over a new leaf and become more fit, more toned, stronger or faster. Today the boxing/boot camp I attend was full of people eager to sweat it out and do what is needed to become better physically. It's good to see the space filled and I hope that it continues on like that for a long time. I don't mind making some room for someone else who's there to change and grow physically. Let's put the same energy into improving what we do in the classroom as well
This year I really let go of parent communication. It was a plate that got dropped not because I don't think that it is important but because well honestly, I just did not have any more room and there was so much to juggle. Just like a good boot camp, no excuses. I have a plan to use a Smore poster as a fun way to communicate what is going on in the classroom with the parents- i hope that working with a new 2.0 Tool will help me get back in the groove of sharing more of what's happening with my parents!
