The Classroom Clique is bringing to you a fun little hop filled with some of our resolutions for the New Year and a few freebies for you as well! Nothing like starting out the new year with a set of FREE resources for your class!
My resolution for myself is to sleep more. I get up super early in the morning (4:30 AM) to get things done, and then no matter how many times I tell myself I am going to go to bed early, I stay up way too late. The result is a crankier me than I would like. So, I need to be getting 7 to 8 hours each night - no excuses!
My resolution to my family is to turn off the technology from time to time to connect with each other. With a TpT store, a blog and a teaching career (Pinterest anyone? LOL), I am often quite connected to the internet at ALL TIMES. I feel like occasionally my family gets the short end of the stick when it comes to quality time with me, and I want to change that this year. I also have tween, teen, and adult children, so they also need to unplug from time to time.
My resolution for my class is to enjoy things more. Because I teach in a tested grade, I feel like I am often stressed about testing and test scores. I want to just enjoy my students for who they are rather than a set of data. I want to laugh at their jokes, make time for their stories, and marvel at their curiosity.
I love using cooperative learning strategies in my classroom, so I have created this solve and switch activity for you. I have included 12 double digit multiplication task cards, but you can use it with any set of task cards.
Don't forget to visit my other friends in the hop to collect even more freebies! Hope 2016 is your best year yet!
