Happy April Fool's Day!!
This is not a joke!
We have one more blogger interview to share with you!!
Mr. Greg from Kindergarten Smorgasboard!!
I loved reading blogs and using the ideas I found on blogs. People kept telling me I should blog about my classroom. But I never thought people would want to hear from a male kindergarten teacher. I talked about for months and finally one day, Jason (The mister) said: “JUST DO IT!” So I sat down and typed up my very first post…and I’ve never looked back!
Absolutely. For me, blogging is my reflection. I come home each day
And blog about what happens in our classroom. So I’m able to reflect
Daily on what worked, what didn’t work and how I can make things
Better to meet the needs of my classroom. Now that I’ve added videos
To my blog, it’s even more powerful! Watching (and hearing…YIKES!)
Yourself teach is a great eye opener! I also find that I’m much more
Balance? What’s that?! I have a regular schedule. I blog as soon As I come home. I spend an hour or so on my blog. This keeps me focused and on task. When I’m on social media or creating resources
I do it while we hang out and watch tv. So we’re still together, but I’m able to create. Also, Saturdays are my days off. No TPT…no blog…no school. It’s our day!
It also helps to have an amazing husband who supports me and goes Out of his way to help me. He even cuts and laminates all of my things!
Lots of pictures!!! People want to see it. And teachers are busy so less text is better!
BE YOU!!!!!! Be yourself. Let your voice come through. Let people get to know you as a teacher and a person!!
My most favorite is my KindergartenMorning Messages! I’m a huge
Morning meeting advocate and having my messages all in one
Convenient place eases so much stress!!!
Thank you so much for letting us interview you Mr. Greg!!
