As you know our library is a two-story glass encased room, a fishbowl, the Timbit in the centre of the double decker doughnut of our school. It is, supposedly, a show case, but there is a problem, as can clearly be seen from the second floor windows. My desk and creative organization system are quite visible from many places in the school. I try. I really do. A couple times a year I ruthlessly purge the paper and piles and shamelessly ponder for a short time how organized I am, but then the mess creeps back in again!
I challenge you this year is to Find Your Words. I'd love our students to create an Inspiration Board to glue to the front of their language book. I want them to have a visual reminder of what is important to them to keep them focussed throughout the year and I challenge you to set your goals too.
Here’s some potential goal topics that might get you thinking:
academic goal personal goal athletic goal reading goal fun goal technology goal
If you are not completing a board, you could post goals on the comments below or email them to me, but remember for it to get posted on the board they have to be in to me before Friday, August 30th because once the students come in…the clutter begins!
