Well, here I go...my first blog post! Yay! I have gained so many great ideas from different blogs over these past few years of teaching. I can’t wait to share how I have used others’ ideas in my classroom, as well as some of my own ideas!
Thanks to Alicia, at Dreamlike Magic, for beautifying my blog!
You probably want to know a little bit about me first. My name is Bridget and I am about to start my 3rd year teaching fifth grade. I attended Auburn University (War Eagle!), and was lucky enough to get a job right away teaching the grade that touched my heart, fifth grade! Once my then fiance graduated, we moved to Charleston, SC! I was so excited to move to such a beautiful city and get a job teaching my favorite grade, once again! I got married about one month ago and feel so lucky to be with such a great guy. Last school year was full of wedding planning, which kept my weekends super busy. I am so excited to start this new hobby...blogging! I have to thank my sister, Caitlin (at Kindergarten Smiles), for getting me started! I have used all of her tips and tricks so far. I am still trying to pick her brain for ideas!
My school is a CD-5th school, and we just adopted the Leadership program! Have any of you read “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” or “The Leader in Me” by Stephen Covey? If so, then you know what the 7 habits are and how we will implement them at our school. I will be sharing a lot of my ideas involving using the 7 Habits in your classroom on this blog, as well as my Teachers Pay Teachers page. I will also be posting Common Core based activities and resources, forms I use for the beginning of the year or with parents, and more! Please click here or on the image to enjoy these FREE posters for your classroom! Even if your school does not use the 7 Habits in your curriculum, your students can still benefit from practicing these habits!
