The calm before the storm.....
Otherwise known as "my last day of freedom before back to school craziness". Doesn't that sound soooo dramatic?
So..why not participate with Michelle for some Sunday smorgasbord fun to calm me down?!?
Last night, I attended a great GNO with my workout group. We had a blast. And, one of the highlights was playing this...a life size Jenga game! I mean...who doesn't love jumping at the chance to be a kid again. Just for the record...it was NOT me that let it fall...not this time anyway.
My teamie and I are desperately trying to order last minute pieces for our new classrooms. One of things on our list is this. Do you have one in your room? Do you like it? Is it worth it? Our walls in the new learning cottages are not the strongest, and a few teachers tried to put up hanging wooden cubbies last year. It didn't work out so well so we have been looking for alternatives. Our goal is to roll them into the hallway that connects our two rooms so that we can save some space throughout the day.
I finally got around to typing up the first few days of plans for B2S. I really like how we are only going to be in school two days before the weekend. This gives me time to really focus on establishing a good classroom community while helping the kiddos ease back into the classroom routine. Not to mention that we are all going to be exhausted and needing that weekend break to recoup for week two!
And, I have made my list of things that I want to snag at the TPT back to school sale!
I have frantically and nervously getting ready for presenting at Common Core Math PD this week with some awesome ladies from my district. I am so blessed to work with some amazing ladies who are so talented. There is something to be said about awesome collaboration!
Finally, I made these beauties this week after seeing what Nicole, from First Grade Frenzy, shared in her Monday Made It post! They are super easy to make and so cute!!
Well, there is my random Sunday smorgasbord! I am so glad that this summer has allowed me to begin this blogging journey. I cannot begin to explain what this blog and the educator blogging community means to me. I thank each of you who visit my blog, send me emails, communicate through Instagram, and provide me with ideas and inspiration galore. I could not and cannot do it without you. I wish everyone a happy rest of your summer and a great start to our new school year!
