Do YOU Know the SECRET to LIFE? I DO! Nibits for Newbies 4.17.16

If it's SUNDAY..
It's time for
NIBITS FOR NEWBIES

Sorry I was MIA  last week..
I have a great excuse..

 Gma & Gpa ( & Daddy )
took little one
to see...
MICKEY   MOUSE!
So fun!

OK...So 
 I KNOW the
SECRET TO LIFE!

No...I have NOT climbed the highest mountain..
or whatever...

I just "FIGURED" it out!

I do my BEST  "THINKING"
when I am GARDENING!

No...the SECRET to LIFE is NOT GARDENING!
It's great...but I don't think it's the SECRET!

Here it goes...

There are 3 things 
you need to KNOW
 to be SUCCESSFUL
in ANYTHING!


Have a PLAN!
DUH!
Heard this before.
BUT, it makes sense.

I am gardening.
If I don't have a plan for my garden, some things will grow.
Not EVERYTHING in this world needs MY touch!

BUT...If  I really think about the VARIABLES ( Sunlight, water, plants next door..)
I can ENHANCE the outcomes with just a little THOUGHT!

If I have a "PLAN" I know where to put all of my HARD work!

In my classroom...
If I know where we want to go..
I can "PLAN" HOW to get there.

"Winging it" only works for a short time.
You gotta know where you want to go!

I am NOT saying you can not DEVIATE from the plan ( it may enhance it)!
BUT,
having a goal 
is the #1 SECRET to Success!


OK..I have a PLAN!
Now what?

The #2 SECRET TO LIFE is....(drumroll)
Have the RIGHT TOOLS!

I am working in my garden.
I have lots of energy...I know where I want things to go.
I have a MASTER plan..

GO!

So I did!


I wore my good athletic shoes!
UGH! Silly!
Now I have to clean them.
REALLY GOOD!

I started with a shovel!
Farmer's tools!
DUMMY!
Forgot the GLOVES!
OUCH!
Many blisters & very SORE HANDS!


Finally...got out the ROTOTILLER!
To the RESCUE!

I should have gotten ALL of the RIGHT TOOLS 
BEFORE I started!
Would have saved aches & pains!

In my classroom,
Have the CORRECT tools READY TO GO!

If I am teaching GUIDED READING,
Get my whiteboards, HFW word cards, books, 
EVERYTHING I will need
CLOSE AT HAND!

I don't need my SCIENCE TE on my reading table when I teach small group reading!
Have the RIGHT  TOOLS for the JOB at HAND!

SOunds like good classroom ORGANIZATION!

So..the #2  SECRET to LIFE is....
Have the RIGHT TOOLS for the JOB AT HAND!

and last...


The # 3 SECRET to LIFE is....

BE FLEXIBLE!
I know how I wanted my garden to be...PLAN
I used the correct tools....TOOLS

BUT....

The SPRINKLER PIPES ARE IN MY WAY!

So...



With the best of intentions...
AND
FLEXIBILITY...




My straight rows ..
are 
NOW...
ROUNDED!

Same ending RESULTS...
Just a "LITTLE"  different!

Don't be afraid to change your "PLAN"
to get to your goals!

It may make YOUR LIFE
a little EASIER!

And so my friends..
There are the 3 Secrets to LIFE!

Are they REALLY SECRETS?

I dunno.

NOT TO ME!

Happy Spring My FRIENDS!

Enjoy the "FRUITS" of your "LABORS"!
