Back to School Resolutions (and Fall Freebies!)

Hello bloggies! I'm not sure if it's just the teacher in me or if it's something that many others feel as well, but September for me is a time of rejuvenation. I look at it as a time to start fresh; a clean slate for a new school year. I am more likely to make (and undoubtedly break) resolutions in September than I am in January. I always feel very ambitious in September and I have a million new ideas and plans and goals. And since they say that one is waaaay more likely (ya those are my kinda stats) to keep the resolutions that they make if they share them with others, here I go. This school year, I resolve to...

1)       Blog on a weekly basis.

After a long break from blogging because life got too busy, I have decided to be a better blogger. Oh wait, too vague. As our school board would say: my goals should be measurable so I vow to blog one time per week for the next 6 months.

2)    Join linky parties.

I’m not even really sure how this is done, but I’m gonna do it!!

3)     Figure out pinterest

I love pinterest, I use it all the time, but I don’t really get it…. Is that weird?

4)    Find balance

My big goal this year is to find a better work, life balance. I will posting lots of new units on my TPT site, working like crazy at school to make sure my Grade 1 students are engaged, excited and learning, learning, learning, but I am also a wife, sister, daughter, friend, and pet-parent and those things are so important. I am going to try to come to school quite early and leave right after work and aim to *wait for it* not do any prep or marking at home! (Hey- stop laughing. It can be done… I think.)

5)     Post freebies!

I love when the amazing teachers of the blogs I follow post freebies on their blogs or on Teachers Pay Teachers. I am going to start posting lots of freebies to pay it forward. I know these things can be invaluable to new teachers and I love to share.

No time like the present to start sticking to my resolutions so here are a couple of fall themed freebies.
