I haven't really felt like blogging lately.
At first, I felt a swing in the reflection of my classroom. This year has had it's challenges and struggles, but it feels like a cakewalk compared to last year. The entire last month of school last year, I thought I was losing my mind. I could barely make it through to the end of the year. This year, I happened to look at the school calendar yesterday and realized there is about 30 school days left. I didn't even realize school was so close to ending! What I'm rambling towards is that I feel a little bit more sure-footed about what I'm doing in the classroom. (just a little bit!) Somehow, This has made those shiny, happy moments I've had with the children seem so special that I've had the feeling I should just let it be, instead of sharing it. I don't know, it's a strange feeling and a strange way of thinking, but that's how my brain has been working lately.
Also, I've realized that I don't really need to post about the things on my shelf.1) If I have found something that works, I've probably already posted about it. 2) there are so many other great blogs out there with better ideas than me! 3) I like to keep the extensions minimal. Of course, if I make/find something awesome, I'm willing to share, but it's certainly not a focus for this blog.
That brings me to my question for you readers (if you're still out there). I still want to blog, but I think I need some direction and focus for this blog. It started out as a place to throw up my feelings/thoughts/elations/disappointments because my friends and family were sick of hearing me talk about the same thing. However, it's evolved. I still can't believe people actually read this. So, and I mean this in the nicest way possible, why do you read my blog? What do you want to read about?
