I feel just awful about neglecting blog world. I have awoken from my mini hibernation and am energized and ready to go! 10 years ago, when I went back to teaching after being home with my girls for 5 years, one of my co-workers told me that I would be so exhausted I would sleep my entire break. Of course, I didn’t believe her. Then, break came and guess what I did….yep, I slept my whole break away. It is so tempting to fill up our days running around, but I think it is important to remember to rest so that we can go back and start the second half of the year with a renewed energy and sense of purpose.
Speaking of purpose, if I ever needed a reminder of why I love my job so much, I received a whole book of them from my class for Christmas. Again this year I was incredibly blessed. One of the moms in my room organized an amazing class gift and had the students all write a page in a cute little mitten book that she made.
This one just melted my heart.
This one made me proud. I have been working hard with this kiddo on silent final e. I will forever have a reminder that I just might be getting through to him!
This one made me laugh so hard!
I am so very blessed to have a job that I love. Every day that I wake up and go to school I feel that I am exactly where God called me to be.
I have also been working on some new stuff for my TpT store in the moments I haven’t been sleeping, cleaning, or shopping! To kick off the new year I am having a little sale in my shop. Everything is 15% off through New Year’s Eve. If you have had your eye on something, now would be a good time to grab it!
Here is one of the new products I have been working on. There will be more to come in the next few days!
When we get back from break we will be doing a little review of author’s purpose. I can’t wait to make the cute anchor chart I saw on pinterest. You can check it out here. Then we will use these task cards for some more review. Not sure how exactly I will use them yet, they are so versatile and there are so many options! I have included 2 pages of ideas for using the cards in the packet. Now I just need to decide!
