Wow, it's been almost two weeks since my last post! Where has time gone? Well, it has gone to lesson planning, room preparation, and spending as much time as I can with my three boys keeping them busy. Look how great they are!
Took them today to Bookoo Bounce (Inflatable Jump House) and to lunch. Tomorrow we are off to see the Smurfs 2. I think I may be more excited then them about the movie.
Today I'm linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the August Currently linky.
Listening- There is so much going on here in southern LA- good and bad. I've also been trying to watch the Today show these last few days before I start work in 5 days to keep up and catch up on what's going on with the country.
Loving- I am loving my classroom! My classroom colors this year are black and red. I used red chevron border with black fadeless paper for the background and also incorporated my star border. You can see what it looks like here.
Thinking- I have way too many things on my To-Do list. My hope is to get through most of them next Monday.
Wanting- Yes, I want one more month of summer. So I can really relax!
Needing- I need a back massage. I really don't care for massages and have only had a handful of massages in my life time, but my back has been hurting a lot lately. So, bad I can't even sleep at night. I think it is my mattress. So, maybe I need a new mattress!
1. I have completed my ELA lesson plans for the first 5 weeks of school, however I changed them completely yesterday upon finding the site Learnzillion. Great site if you need guidance on how to approach the CCSS. I now have 2 weeks of lesson plans complete, but I keep finding great ideas all over the web from blogs, pinterest, twitter and Facebook. I need to stop looking!
2. I need a good night's sleep between my new puppy whining and my back aching I don't get much sleep at night.
3. When school begins officially for students on Friday, August 9th I need students who are ready to learn.
