The final stretch...

While you are all reading this... I am at work for in service. I have decided to put the final things on my old to do list into a shortened version. I must say- in a week, I did pretty darn good! Thank you to my daughter for behaving and allowing me to get work done! Anyways, I hope you all are enjoying what is left of your summer...and if you are back to work already like me, I hope you are staying sane... I fear I won't be...

The revised to do list:
1. Type detailed plans for SS unit 1. Gather all materials and put in binder for future use.
2. Plan week 2 (all I have left are reading, math, and science- science is already planned, just need to fill in the plan book, and reading has a general outline)
3. Order closing circle and energizers book (as soon as closing circle book is available for shipping)
4. Make Blooms question cards (1 set for now, possibly another set later on for student use)
5. Make copies and prep the remaining first week stuff
6. Plan out homework pack for week 2
7. DL word problems and daily fix its for Aug don't need this until week 2 so will do that this weekend...
8. Prep materials for week 1
9. Make "teacher" cards for rotation schedule (I accidentally forgot those... they are pretty important)
10. Buy posterboard and create writing tips pencil
11. Homeworkopoly- cards
12. Make Labels for drawers of copies
13. Super spellers club display-print
14. Type up unit 1 spelling list (without story titles since we are going out of order)
15. Make unit 6 vocab Dr's orders
16. Get 100 chart for mystery person class behavior
17. How are you feeling about this topic charts- print
18. Print reading strategy posters

Not bad considering the original list went over 50 items!! (And I just added 7 of them onto here that weren't on the original list.) Does it ever end?!


  1. Congrats on being able to cross so many things off of your to do list! Best of luck getting the rest of your stuff done-you can do it!!!

  2. I think I just broke out in hives reading this list! I need to get started but haven't been able to get into my room yet. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm a new follower.

  3. Thanks girls! I have lost steam on this to do list. These in service days just drain me! I am working slowly on finishing some lesson plans for week 2. The plans are done (in my head) just have to type them out. Then of course all that other stuff and the prep work.
