It's been a long time. It's been quite the school year. I can't believe we are coming to the end of it. Tonight will be a short post as I simply get back into the art of blogging.
As for the title, it was completely accidental, but it made me think of this Dixie Chicks song (Long Time Gone). I loved them when I was in high school.
2) I saw a great guest post on Christina's blog, written by a guest blogger (Sara from Smiling in Second Grade that you can read here. I LOVE the idea of Friday journals, and I can't wait to start this next year. Frankly, I was so excited about this idea, especially for my English Language Learners, that if it didn't mean that I would have to find an extra journal for each of my students I would have started this immediately.
3) I recently took advantage of the TpT Easter sale, and I picked up two great units. I picked up Hope's poetry unit which you can find here and I picked up Amy's Earth Day unit which can be found here. We have just begun our study of plants so we are working on Amy's parts of a plant foldable in class right now. I'm excited to give you an update about this study later. That's all for now. It's definitely time to go home.
