Summer Bucket List Linky Party!

Ok, I guess I'll join in on the fun!!! I'm linking up with Hadar, Teri, and April, for a Summer Bucket linky party!

There are several things that I plan to do this summer, but I'll just share a few with you. Otherwise, it could go on forever!

1. Finish the last two classes of my Ed.S!! Yayayay!! I think after this I'm definitely taking a long, long, break from school. I mean, I've been going since I was 5, lol! I'm tired of school!!!

2. Read The Daily Five, and the CAFE book by the sisters. I cannot wait!

3. Adjust my centers and center rotation, based on The Daily Five. I also need to look through the curriculum to create activities for this!

4.  We are fully adopting the common core this year, and I need to dig in and laminate those great posters that I got from Deanna Jump! There's like a million of them. 

5.  I would like to re-evaluate my writing workshop for my kinders. I had finally moved towards having a great one in first grade, but I'm not exactly happy with the way it went this year in kindergarten!

6.  I've got to re-think how I'm going to organize my classroom!! At the other campus we had a lot of shelves and cabinets. Here, we don't have as much room!!  Organization is the rule for this upcoming school year!

7.  I've been doing a great job of exercising since January, going before work. I've gotta keep it up, no getting lazy over the summer!

8.  Last, but not least, learning all that I can about blogging, creating more products for TPT, and keeping my house clean!!! (We'll see about the last part!!)

P.S. Is anyone else having problems with Google Reader?


  1. Looks like you'll be busy with school stuff! I just got the Daily 5, I can't wait to read it! Happy almost summer!


  2. You will loooove the books. I am starting them both next year and I can't wait!!!

  3. Everyone is talking about these books!! I think I have to go order them ;)

  4. I want to keep my house clean too...HA! There's something about little people that just wears a teacher out?!? Glad I found your blog! I'm a new follower

  5. Hi! You have the cutest blog! I have read the first two books on your Summer Bucket List and they were well worth the time it spent to read them. (They were easy reads too!) I am your newest follower! I would love for you to come visit my blog when you get a chance: Enchanted Tales of Elementary School at Lots of bloggy love.....Diane

  6. I have just read the Daily 5 book and I LOVE it! I love it so much that I used the last month and a half of school to implement it. I have started to write about using the Daily 5 with my kindergarteners on my brand new blog... take a look, I'd love to trade tricks with you.
