    One of the great things about teaching is that you get to have a fresh start each fall. I'm always trying to do better. This fall, I plan on getting my second graders to really know their math facts. I am already aware of some of the students difficulties in reading and so I want to make sure the students progress and love reading. I also want to become more organized. What do you want to improve on in the fall?

    I really hope to incorporate a lot of hands on activities. I want to use tiered activity cards for differentiating instruction. Teach my students organization through interactive notebooks.

    I want to improve on teaching kids how to find "lowest common denominator." That is always one of the hardest 5th grade math topics.

    I want to get to know the kids more. Since I'm departmentalized, sometimes I just know them as my math student who I have for 50 minutes and I want to get to know my students better this upcoming year.

    I've taken a Brain-based learning course this summer and I want to incorporate some of the things I've learned into my classroom.

    I want to do more hands on math activities, and do more interactive lessons with the word wall.

    I want to try and implement Love and Logic successfully into my classroom management plan.

    Also, I want to differentiate math instruction better using our schools DMT strategy.

    I am really looking forward to next year!!

    :wow: I think it is so great you want to better yourself as a teacher and always strive for excellence. I hear so many teachers with bad attitudes about their job. I have taught for 13 years and have won awards, but by no means do I think I am the best I can be. I love learning and inturn I want to instill that love in my students. I applaud your goals and commend you for your positive outlook! I too want to do a better job of teaching basic math facts and do a better job of keeping my desk organized!
