I just recently found out that I will probably be looping with my class next year. I'm excited because I love the group I have but nervous because I've never done it before. I want to keep it fresh and fun but stick with the same routines. I know it's almost spring break and we are all very ready. Will being together for two years be like that? I know it will rock to start off the year knowing their strengths and personalities. I know what books they love and what quirks they have. I know we will hit the door running when fall comes and won't have many of the routine hang ups that come with not knowing your students.
Has anyone out there looped and have advise for me? Does looping feel like a wonderful fun ride like the picture above? :)
Better yet does anyone have a parent letter for looping?
I'm a crazy busy mother of four! My daughter Morgan is an independent 13, my oldest son is high energy 12, my youngest son is a 10 year old flash fanatic, and little Sammy is only 3. My husband is my best friend and high school sweet heart. I teach in a fourth grade classroom surrounded by wonderful co-workers who I couldn't possibly do without. All in all, life is busy and life is good!
