It's easy to get overwhelmed with all of the expectations that are poured onto teachers of all grades and all subjects these days. It seems difficult at times to add variety to our lessons while still sticking to the curriculum guidelines. Sometimes just a fresh perspective and new ideas are all you might need to look at your lessons with new eyes. I hope to be able to point out some great lesson plans as well as offer some different ideas to help make your school year as fun and interesting as possible for you and your students.
