Teaching is like everything else in the world, there are good days and bad days. If we focus on the not so great days we lose sight of the possibility of better ones ahead. I say it all the time failure is the first step in learning and today I learned a bit.
Student choice is such a motivator. I love journals but my kids don't always. Adjustments need to be made that helps me meet my requirements and help them meet theirs.
The possibilities of tomorrow are always greater than the stumbling blocks of yesterday. Focus on forward. Tomorrow I am planning to use a great picture book as a mentor text. We reflect on kindness and review books. Forward.
