I have been greatly inspired to create my own blog after gaining so many wonderful ideas from other blog masters. I am a newlywed since July 2010, a mom to an adorable 5 year old super mixed breed dog, and I am a teacher in my 2nd year in second grade.
However I taught first grade for four years before I was "promoted". I loved first grade and will never disagree that it is the most challenging grade, but Second grade is amazing! The students are able to do so much more independently and LOVE to read since it's not a struggle for them anymore.
While driving to Cross Fit one night, thinking about my May bulletin board, I heard "Imagine" on the radio. I instantly thought that my title needed to be "You may say we are dreamers, but we're not the only ones." I decided to also include our social studies unit All About Work and had the students write about their futures. Additionally on Grandparent's Day, I had grandparents write what they wanted to be "when they grow up" and used the program Comic Life. Lastly, I took a picture of each child "dreaming" about their futures. I was so proud of how the end product turned out.
