Preparing for Next Year

Yep, that's right, you read it correctly; I'm preparing for next year. It seems like every year as the school year begins to come to a close, I get the itch to start preparing for the following year. This year I'm fortunate enough to have a student teacher. So while she is on her two-week takeover, I'm working like crazy making new center games, re-doing my files and rethinking my homework for the next school year. Each month we do a writing sample. For next year I've decided to have all of the prompts collated into a book. I think it will be a nice showcase of how they have progressed with their writing, penmanship and drawing.

Here are the first few pages Looks like Google docs doesn't like my big files.

We do a writer's notebook once a week. I love to see the progress from the beginning to the end of the year!

I tried to open your monthly writing, but it said it was not available.

Funny you should mention next year. I was thinking of posting some ideas that teacher's might like to try but one's thinking of next year already! LOL!
Maybe I'll get those tutorials ready after all. ;-)
I tried your link didn't work for me either.
