It's been an intense month to say the least! I've had reports to write (which means endless marking!), observations (being observed and observing others) plus I'm closely supporting my student teacher as they start taking over more classes! ☺
Sadly, I did get sick this month, not surprising with all the stress I've been under, but at least I decided to stay home and recover instead of pushing through and staying sick for ages, which is what I usually do! ☹
On the plus side, I did get an outstanding lesson observation which I was thrilled about - my observer said it couldn't have been any better, wow! It's so great to hear the words out loud and know that you're doing a good job for the kids!
Considering life has been so manic, I somehow managed to pump out a lot of goodies for you this month!
A friend requested some religion clip art so I got started on them right away, check out what I've done so far:
I also created some new teaching resources as I wanted to do something fun with my Christmas Emoji clip art, and integrate self reflection / well-being in particular. I created 3 different sets of self-reflection exit tickets suitable for any topic: 2 in interactive notebook style and one focusing on Growth Mindset!
The other resource is a really cute Christmas Emoji dot to dot that covers multiplication and times tables from 1-12 - ideal for extension work for early finishers, homework tasks and general fun for the festive season!
This month I blogged on the following topics:
Yup, you guessed it - I am still loving Instagram! I've been particularly enjoying taking photos of the pretty Christmas lights in London this month:
These are my most popular ones from November!
As this month has been quite intense for me, I watched quite a few films at the cinema which is one of my favourite pastimes! I watched The Accountant, Arrival and Allied (um, how weird they all start with an A!? I'd give them all an A too as too they were great movies!)
I've also been eating out in town every weekend this month and that has been a really great way to wind down after a hard week, plus it gives me a good excuse to take photos of the lovely Christmas lights of London!
So now we are in December - I love teaching this time of year! My classroom is all cosy and festive, I play Christmas music in my lessons and there's not so many commitments and deadlines looming over my head. I won't be seeing much sunshine for a while now as I drive to and from work in the dark but hey, that's all part of the fun! I hope you had a great November and roll on the last few weeks before Winter break, yay!
