New Year resolutions - for teachers!

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Ksmithers83, Jan 1, 2011.

  1. Work/life balance?!
  2. To come on here more - its really helpful! :)
  3. To plan more effeciently - and include some lessons every week which aren't all-singing, all-dancing, animated-power-point, whizz-bang lessons where I swing from the lampshades and the children enjoy several visual, auditory and kineasthetic activities per lesson, with a variety of talk partners, mixed-ability groups and same-ability pairs.
    They may even involve working individually from the millions of text books in school that I've spent the last term ignoring while I burn myself out...
    Oh, and to exercise more (actually, that should read, "start exercising!")
  4. Ok, here's my list (if we lived in an ideal world!)
    * Plan more activities where children can mark their own/each other's work, so that I don't have as much to do;
    * Keep up to date with the marking I do have to do;
    * Keep up to date with APP;
    * Plan more efficiently;
    * Keep my cupboard and desk tidy and organised;
    * Be home (with no work to do) by 5.30pm at least 3 times a week.

    How can you wax eyebrows?
    This is a whole new world for me.

    I don't make NY resolutions.

    To mark my books REGULARLY.

    I left them for weeks at the end of last term because we were Xmas playing, and now i've spent a whole day of my holiday marking them! gutted lol

    To be a bit more enthusiastic and also, to nail my questioning this year as i'm a bit rubbish at it sometimes.
