Adventures in Student Teaching...

I have totally switched into teacher mode, my days consist of teaching my first graders and then coming home to research lessons or ideas on the Internet. I have found so many amazing teacher blogs that have some of the cutest and FREE downloads. I am using some of their items in my lessons this week and hope to post about them in the next few days.

Student teaching has been one of the most overwhelming things I have ever done. I have enjoyed getting to see the "real life" classroom verses teaching a lesson in front of my peers in my college classroom. There is no doubt that teaching is what I was meant to do, I love these kids and I am going to miss them so much when I move to my next placement on March 2nd. The school system has "rules" about photographing the students but I am hoping that before I leave these sweet kiddos that I am able to snap some shots of them. Many of them remembered me on Valentine's Day and brought me little candy gifts with sweet notes, it just melted my heart.

I have been thinking ahead to my future classroom and hit the jackpot with some teacher purchases from Dollar Tree this weekend!
I bought several charts, window clings, stickers, and hall passes. Dollar Tree has some of the best teacher stuff, I plan to make a visit weekly to see what other goodies I can find.

I hope you all have a good week!!
