Ahh... summer! It's that time of year when we can kick back and relax a bit. It's that time of year when we can look forward to the next school year with high hopes and expectations. It's that time of year when we can finally tackle those projects we've been pinning on Pinterest!
Although people always comment on how lucky I am to have the summers off, I find it funny how much of the summer I actually spend working. Something about working on my own time is perfectly fine with me! Here's my summer to-do list. I wonder how it compares to yours.
1. Organize those pesky bulletin board letters (Just finished this actually, you can check it out here!)
2. Finish creating and post some freebies and for sale items on Teachers Pay Teachers and Teacher's Notebook.
Here's a little preview for you!
3. Get my gallbladder out... boo! I can't believe that I'm 25 and have gallstones! Oh well, better to have it out and not mess with it anymore.
4. Attend lots of training! Call me a nerd, but I love to learn new things. I especially love to go to conferences! I've got trainings lined up to help me with my new job title next year... Colleen Patton, Third Grade Teacher, Dual Language, Digital Classroom! Lot's of stuff packed in there... Looking forward to it, but I'm still not sure what it will look like. That's a lot of change for one year.
5. Read and get ready to host chapter 7 of Guided Math by Laney Sammons. Brenda over at Primary Inspired has put this whole thing together. I'm super excited to get started!
6. Tackle these Pinterest projects:
- Create a Hula Hoop Tent for my classroom.
- Line those milk crates I use to organize things.
- Find new table baskets for community supplies in my classroom next year. Probably from Hobby Lobby. :)
- Make some cute hand sanitizer bathroom passes.
How does that compare to your to-do list?
Hope you get yours done, too!
