New Year's Resolution Linky Party

So Clutter Free Classroom is having a fun linky party. It's all about your New (school) Year's Resolutions. As you can probably guess, my first new year's resolution would be to be more organized. I am moving toward that goal already by organizing my closet. Here's how it's coming so far:
Unfortunately, it'll be a while before I can update you on my progress with the closet after today.  I happened to run over my (almost) new camera with the car's a long story - I'll tell ya later!

Anyhoo, on to resolution #2:  Leave school by 4:30 each day.  I know, there are some teachers out there who leave right at 3:35 (the time when our teachers can leave), but I am just not one of them.  I would shoot for 4, but that might be a stretch!

Resolution #3: Fully implement workstations in both reading and math.  I've been doing literacy centers for a while, but really want to try the workstations.  I've read Debbie Diller's literacy and math workstation books and am really excited about it. 

Finally, resolution #4: Have more fun with my students!  I think with all of the pressure that we are under, I haven't really always taken the time to fully appreciate my students and just enjoy them for the wonderful little beings that they are.  I'm going to try really hard this year to do just that.

I'd love to hear your new year's resolutions!  Hurry over and link up here:
