Time to cross 3 things off my 27 before 27 list…
#4. Brush up on American and World History. I started a new job at an alternative school at the end of August and it has actually helped me out on this goal. In addition to implementing behavior plans, I get to teach an academic subject, which I love. I am teaching social studies – the kids and I are learning a lot! A few topics I have covered recently are The Oregon Trail, pioneer life, Laura Ingalls Wilder, the Underground Railroad, and Harriet Tubman. #9. Learn some geography. Ditto to the above. Every couple weeks, we have a geography lesson. There are so many fun videos on YouTube to help kids (and adults) learn about the continents, directions, and US states. Check out this video that I use with the kids. Continents Song for Kids
#10. Become financially self-sufficient. This was the year that I finally got off my parents’ phone plan. I finally make enough money to live on. It’s. About. Time.
