Where does one begin?.?.?.

Exactly....where do I begin???  I have been mesmerized for the last year reading all these great blogs about various grades and the wonderful ideas and was just informed by my principal that I'll be moving to 1st grade next perfect is that???  I have all these ideas running through my head as far as my Reading Workshop data collection, my classroom, my kiddos, etc.  I feel like my mind is in a whirlwind so I thought this would be the perfect time to start blogging myself. 
I hope you can gain something from this weblog, whether it be teaching ideas, family ideas, or whatnot~  That's my intention for A Teacher's Nest, a place to lay down all my thoughts and ideas about everything that we as teachers go through.
The first thing I did when I was told I was going to 1st grade is think about all the files I have accumulated in the upper elementary grades in my file cabinets.  Whew!  I would have a wall of just file cabinets if I keep going in this direction.  So I checked out some of my other colleague's ways of organizing and saw that some of the best strategies were in monthly notebooks.  So that was the first thing I did, I created monthly binder covers and spine labels.  I'm attaching them below so you can grab 'em if you like.  Certainly I need a few others, for grade level planning, common core, etc. but this is a great start.
