Classroom Goals for 2015!

Hi there! 
It's Amber, blogging from Mrs. Masters Kinder Love and I blog on the 27th of every month!

I am so excited to be blogging on winter break today! My husband and I are actually in Paris, KY visiting family! It is such a darling little place!  It really is the most wonderful time of the year, isn't it?! 
If you are anything like me, I'm sure you have been racking your brain and coming up with a million and one ways to improve your classroom, teaching, and home lives this upcoming new year. My list seriously could go on and on but that's not going to do me any good. I need to make a few, focused goals and do my best to stick to them!  Here are a few of my goals for 2015!

Teaching Goal 1: Our mornings are always very structured and I am a stickler to ensuring that we make the most of our Reading Workshop block. My afternoons are fairly structured but I feel like I could do a better job of sticking to a schedule. It seems like Writing Workshop never gets the full amount of time that it should. I am definitely going to work on this!

Teaching Goal 2: Oh my I feel like our classroom library is a HOT MESS right now. I need to get same labels and reorganize/ label all of my new books. I also need to go back and reteach library expectations. I think a few of my little darlings forgot some of our rules :)

Personal Goal: I must get out of school at a decent time. So many times the time just seems to get away from me! I must make getting home to hubs a priority! If I can get out of school, it will make the dinner part that much more attainable!

When we go back to school, I am also going to have my students come up with a new goal. We do this every semester and the kids love working towards their goals. This time around we are going to focus on what we need to do to meet those goals! This will help us hold ourselves accountable! :)  You can pick up a free copy here

What are your goals for the new year?! Relax, rest and rejuvenate! Enjoy the rest of your break and go back to school ready to take on the world!


  1. My big goal for 2015 is to get my school stuff organized. We cleared out our classrooms last year with everything that we owned (my room was virtually empty) because we went on strike. When the strike was settled, I moved a little bit of my stuff back, but didn't have time to get it all back. They shampooed my carpet and stripped my tile, so I couldn't get in my room during the summer, so consequently, half of my stuff is at home in my garage, and half is in my classroom. I feel so disorganized this year!! My 2015 goal is to GET ORGANIZED!

    1. Oh my Cheryl! Best of luck getting it all back together! I'm sure you'll have everything up and organized in no time! :) Thanks for stopping by! :)
