Next just around the corner!

Just two months ago, I blogged about developing a list of changes for the next school year.  It's hard to believe that "next year" is almost here!

I report back to school for in service in just 11 days!  I have added a few things to my list over the summer including having students be guest bloggers on my classroom blog and that students who sign up for retakes must come in for a help session or show evidence of extra practice before they retake an assessment.  I'm also diving in to standards-based grading full on!  My school decided to implement a benchmark report card for reading/LA and math.  I'm THE 6th grade math teacher, so that's me!  I will be working to develop a benchmark report card very soon!

What are some things you're going to change in your classroom this fall?!  I would LOVE to hear your ideas!
