What are some of the things you do to get ready for the next year during your summer break.
Rest! Update my classroom webpage, look up and read about new and interesting things teachers are doing in their classroom, see if it is something I want to do. I use the summer to find new ideas mostly and perfect old ones.
I spend the summer trying to get myself ahead for next year...for example, I'll have all my birthday certificates with their names and dates all filled out in advance, that way I can just grab them. Anything I can do now that I won't have to do later, I try to get done!
I am reviewing curriculum. I am moving back to third after about 8 years. I want to be as prepared as I can. I try and make rough first week plans and very rough year plans. I have already copied papers for the first week. I also look for new ideas, check out other teacher websites.
