Another One Bites the Dust Linky Party

Amber, over at Adventures of a Third Grade Teacher, is having a linky party.
It's to reflect on your year. What a great idea! 

Here goes...

The Great:

1. Starting a blog for my classroom.
I began with a google website. But it was too difficult to manage on a daily basis.
The blog is soooooo much easier!

2. Keeping my classroom neat and organized.
It is nice and tidy. But I would like to get it a little more fun and jazzed up. 
I have posted about this before... I am longing for the owl theme from Schoolgirl Style.

I just love it!!!

3. Working on incorporating the Common Core Standards.
We are working on our Math curriculum this summer. I feel like with all the units you all have prepared and some of mine that I am in good shape for next year.

The Not So Great:
1. Not having enough time for Math.
I know this is not my fault entirely. I do not make up the schedule. I need to fight for more time next year. I do not feel I have taught with the program with fidelity only have a little more than half the time you are suppose to allow.
We did have fun though :)

2. Science and Social Studies
I need to put more time into this.

3. Complaining Critiquing
APPR had taken over a lot of my time. It is what it is and it's not going away.

It's your turn to share three things that were great about this school year, and three things that were not so great.
Be sure to link up your post with the linky party on Amber's blog. 

Have a wonderful day!

    I'm having my first linky and I'd love to have you!

  3. I love the owl collection! And spending more time on Science & Social Studies is definitely on my list too :)


  4. I hear you on the Math! I don't think I spend enough time on it either since it is after lunch and the kids are so...well bleh during that time of the day!
