Happy Sunday! I cannot believe I am saying this but it is officially the last week of summer, and a CRAZY one at that! I have trainings, projects and my best friend in the whole world is getting hitched on Saturday! This gal is hoppin on a plane on Friday morning to the great state of Michigan! (Well I am not sure how GREAT the state is, I've never been there, but I am very excited!)
In honor of the last week of summer I have a few exciting things to share! First of all tomorrow starts Teacher Week!!! I am so excited! You can join the party by clicking the button below.
The adorable image below has all the deets you need to know to participate in teacher week! :) I will be posting bright and early! Hope you all join in the fun!
In other news, I have posted my August and September writing journals with prompts! I am pretty excited about them! I am going to use them as morning work. My kiddos will start these after writing their learning goals for the day in their planner. You can check it out by clicking the picture below. And... **The 1st 3 people to follow and comment on this blog post can snag this packet for FREE!**
I am shooting to have the October journal finished this week and continue these monthly! I will take 1 grade at the end of the month using the rubric that's included in the pack for a writing grade. The prompts this month are pretty basic, I plan to beef them up a little more as the year goes on but I figured beginning of the year-- let's keep it basic! :)
In even more news, I am jumping on this bandwagon a little late, but I have been reading The Next Step in Guided Reading I am LOVING this book so far.... like totes love! :)
I am getting tons of awesome ideas! I am revamping my Readers response journals some, and trying something new! I am going to add some vocabulary pages in the journal, a reading log and a weekly assignment to write and tell me about their reading this week! I am working on some freebies to post this week that go along with my reading, so be on the look out for those! : )
This is a little preview, since room photos are going to be shared later this week...but I just HAD to share my achievement of the day! My word wall has been the BANE of my exsistance for a few weeks now. After 5 attempts I FINALLY got it to look the way I wanted. :) I love it!
I must get back to my 24 marathon! I read online Jack Bauer is coming back for another season-- I FREAKED OUT! I love love love love me some 24....so I was stoked to hear this news!
Good Luck to everyone that is going back to school tomorrow! :) Hope it's a great day!
