Hey Guys!

I have been so MIA lately! I started coaching my cheer team again this month, and for now, that has been what has been taking up most of my time. We have a total of 18 girls on our team, ages 10-13, so it can be stressful at times! But, I also love doing it. I consider it my other job, and couldn’t think of another better way to spend the rest of my summer.
I now have the following countdowns going:

·         Just over 2 weeks to go until our first game – OMG! Will we be ready?!?!

·         Less that 3 weeks until the first day of school! I have so many things swarming in my head of what I HAVE to do, and what I WANT to do – I’m not sure that it will all be done, but I feel confident that I could start tomorrow if I had to. My room is about done, I just have a few more (or maybe a lot more) little touches that I want to add (this is where the OCD tendencies take over!).

I am working like mad to try to make my room different from last year, since I am looping with most of my class. 13 of my friends will be making the trip with me from 2nd to 3rd. I am so excited to be working with them again! Then end of the year was weird for me, because I wasn’t really saying goodbye – it was more like leaving for a short vacation before seeing them again. BUT, I will also have 10 more new friends to greet on that first day, which is also exciting.

SOOOOO…. How many of you have ever looped with a class? What are your thoughts on the subject? This is all new to me, so I would love to hear what you all have to say. Please leave me some comments!

Until next time!

  1. I think that you will LOVE looping! I had the opportunity a few years ago to loop with my class from Kindergarten to first grade and it was AWESOME!!! The best part was that I was able to teach right away since I was able to take 16 kiddos with me and they basically taught the new 7 how we did things. I would love to hear about your experience. Best wishes for a wonderful year!!!
