Next Year...

Since today is my first official day of summer break, I thought it would be a great day to link up with  Kim from Joy in 6th for her next year linky party!
Here we go...

I've blogged about my adventures with math rotations at the end of the year.  I am going to start the year full force but also incorporate more of a guided math style.  After some positive feedback, I purchased two guided math books that I hope are going to help!

I feel like I should give myself some credit and say stronger writing teacher.  I think I made great strides in my writing instruction this year.  I have to give a big thanks to Susan Moran and her awesome writing packets.  This is an area I'm going to work on strengthening over the summer.  I also want to make sure I am aligning to the CCSS.

Please tell me I'm not alone here.  No matter how hard I try, I always have a huge stack of papers on the corner of my desk.  Some of it is to throw out and some of it is to refile.  I get so frustrated with myself, I just need to come up with a better system.  I have a lot of binders going on so hopefully that will help me!

What a great linky!  I love it!  What are you definitely going to do next year?  Go link up with
