One of the things I do on the first day of each new year ( have been doing it for the last couple of years ) is to set a plan for the whole year. In this plan I include things I should do and the objectives I should achieve at the end of the year. For instance some of the objectives I have planned for 2012 was to keep publishing 3 posts in this blog on a daily basis. The challenge was very big given the other things that have been going on in my life particularly my Master studies but as you can tell, I DID it. I have also planned to read 20 books during this year and I have only tomorrow to finish the last chapter of my 27th book ( I surpassed the threshold I set with extra 7 books ,Yay ). I do feel so proud of myself and you can't imagine the joy I feel when saying farewell to a year in which I have achieved almost all my goals.
I am pretty sure many of you have achieved a lot of their plans in this year but for next year please include in your list some educational blogging. If you have created a classroom blog then try to work on it and improve it. If you do not have a blog , go ahead and create one and share with your students. If you need ideas of how other teachers are using their blogs , the list below will help you. These are basically classroom blogs that have been nominated for 2012 Edublog Awards. Check them out and share with us your plans for next year.
