Busy Bees

     Semester is official over! I have been catching up on cleaning and still have so much more to do. My kids are not out of school as well and I have no idea what we can do for their break. I know things will develop as time passes.

     I want to speak a little about my Busy Bee Blog. I chose Busy Bee because that will be my room theme. I made a book about bees and also did a powerpoint that was surrounded by bees. There are so many things that can be done with bees such as, cute stories, slogans, and decorations. I will see if I can add my PPT to this blog. I had to pretend I had a class and was doing an open house for my parents. The schedule I made up, but I used my daughters schedule as a guide.  I think it came out pretty good. I got an A. So, I must have done it right.

    I want to talk about how I want to run my classroom, meaning student-directed or teacher-directed.  I will talk about that soon. Texans game is about to come on and I need to get things in order, like lunch. Until next time,


Edit: I was able to attach my PPT as a video in YouTube. Click this link. Each slide is about 10 seconds long. Busy Bee PPT video

Have you ever had that moment when you just know you want something or want to be something? I did about 3 1/2 years ago. I came to the conclusion that I wanted to become a teacher. Here I am today with a year until I graduate. It will be a huge accomplishment for myself to receive my Bachelors. I am going for EC-6 Generalist w/ ESL certification. Yeah!

I decided to make a blog to write about my ending experience at school and the beginning of my teaching career. I want to add lesson plans, ideas for a classroom, my theories, my philosophy, thoughts, and things I have learned. So, lets get started.

I am at the end of my fall semester and all I have left is papers to write. Funny that I am starting a Blog. :-) My semester has been pretty laid back and not over stressful. I wrote a book and taught a lesson to my peers. My book was about honey bees and my lesson was over double-entry journals. It was a boring lesson but it is very neat to implement in a classroom. I have many ideas of what I want to do in my classroom and I need to collect all my ideas and write them down. Just like any teacher I want to have the perfect classroom and be the perfect teacher. ha ha.

I have a paper to write and response journal to finish. I will bring my theories and philosophy of teaching next time. I will also explain why my blog is titled TEACHING BUSY BEES
