So excited to be linking up with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade for August Currently! It's been several months since I have done this and have I missed the fun...:) So, what have you all been up to this week? I have been to four days of Common Core training....this was my first time ever being trained on Common Core and boy do I have a LOT to learn. I will get it though...with lots of reading and studying I'm sure. I am new to kinder this year and we have a new reading series and this is the first year we are using the Common Core standards....so, I am feeling a little like a brand new teacher...lol!
Most of this is self-explanatory, but I will quickly go over them!
So, I am listening to Pawn Stars which my hubby is watching and I am also listening to my 18 year old son snore on the couch. He has been working all week, outside in the Florida heat mowing and doing yard work. He is one tired boy...:)
I am loving that I can finally get into my new classroom Monday to start sorting (what the previous teacher left), organizing, rearranging, and decorating!
I am thinking about all the things I am planning to buy tomorrow when I go to Gainesville to pick up some classroom goodies! I am hoping to find a few things not on my list too...lol!
I am wanting to get my hair done before school starts...these roots are showing....BAD!
I am needing to go wash the dishes! Oh, how I wish I had a dishwasher!!!
And....as for the three B2s must haves .....I think we all enjoy getting at least one new outfit for back to school....right! I don't plan to buy too much since I just bought lots of new clothes for my cruise at the beginning of summer (you can read about my cruise here, here, here, & here on my other blog if you're interested), but I do want at least one brand new one!
I can't live without REAL post-it notes....seriously!
And, I love making things for my classroom....being crafty is in my blood! See my last two Monday posts if you want to see...:)
I also wanted to mention this awesome opportunity I found out about today over at Amanda's blog...Teaching Maddeness. It is called the SLANT Box project.....Sending Love Across the Nation to Teachers. It sounds super duper fun....I signed up already and can't wait to do it! If you are curious, click on the picture below and go check it out!
Well....I am off to do the dishes and then off to bed! Getting up early to go shopping!!! Woot...:)
Have a blessed Friday!
