My Summer Bucketlist

Today marks Six...count 'em...6 school days until summer break.  I have had a whopper of a year, but I got back test scores for my class, and they were surprisingly much better than I expected.  So now I feel that I can end this year on a good note and start thinking about...

I'm joining April, Hadar, and Teri to share what I want to get done this summer!
I have SO, SO much I want to accomplish this summer.  Being me, I had already started a bucket list on paper and unfortunately already lost it!  So since I work better electronically, here we go...

  1. I have been greatly inspired by Ladybug's Teacher Files's C.R.A.F.T. Board materials...so I want to try The Daily Five and The CAFE Book: Engaging All Students in Daily Literary Assessment and Instructionor CRAFT with my students.  This means first reading the books then deciding how I will adapt these ideas into my classroom.
  2. I am working to help develop an elementary school online campus for my school system.  I will be creating 40 lessons for the first quarter of fifth grade.
  3. I am also working on finishing my gifted certification...I will be done by the time school starts!
  4. My class this year has been rough on my classroom library...so I have to do some reorganizing!  As I reorganize, I am going to scan in books into Booksource's Classroom Organizer.
  5. I have two workshops to attend...1. Implementing the Math Common Core and 2. Textbook Training for our new science adoption.
  6. I am also going to be creating more for my TeachersPayTeachers and Teacher's Notebook stores.  I also have a couple projects I want to list on Etsy too!
  7. I have some seen some materials that I want to adapt for Greek and Latin Roots word work.   Speaking of Greek, I want to develop a unit for Greek myths to start out the year.
Outside of school...
  1. Go to the gym at least 5 days a week!
  2. Planning a baby shower for one of my best friends...just have to pry the baby's gender out of her! :)
  3. Finding the perfect rug for my family room and mirror for foyer.
  4. I have a bunch of Pinterest ideas that I want to try...so many I'm not sure where I want to start!
  5. I want to break out my brand-new sewing machine...and conquer my fear of sewing with it!
How far away are you from summer break?  What do you want to get done on your summer break?

  2. Your blog is so stinkin' cute. I love the header. Summer plans . . . mmmm . . . still workin' on them. However, reading in the sun, puttering in my yard, and a trip to Napa are already "penned" in.
