This school year is draining me. Already. A little over a month in and I feel like it needs to be winter break already. Anyone else feeling this way? I swear I have things planned that I want to post about, but what fun are posts without the pictures? I have TAKEN the pictures. I just haven't had time to upload them. I promise I am trying not to be such a slacker on this blog here, but things are C.R.A.Z.Y. over here. And I try not to neglect my OWN child when she is awake, so that means once she is in bed I have work to do. And next thing you know I am in bed wishing I had time to read just one chapter of my book, but knowing there is absolutely no way my eyes are staying open.

So what is the point of this post? To thank all 57 people that follow this blog. I know I don't post as often as others (and not even as often as I would like), but I swear I am working on finding the balance.

If you read along, start thinking about what is working in your class that you want to share with everyone. Is it something old that you have always done or something new you found this summer? I am sure a lot of us will benefit from seeing what is working in other classrooms. It may be something that we want to do a mental forehead smack because "why didn't I think of that?!" We all have those moments right? I know it can't just be me! I want to start a linkup for this ASAP, but again, I want to have pictures to SHOW what is working for me. So if you think this is something you may want to link up with, start taking pictures (if you are so inclined to share pictures). I will try to get it up within the next week :)

And now... back to planning...


  1. Hi Gina!
    I am swamped as well! My daughter had back surgery and I had to stay home with her the first 3 weeks of school. Now I am bombarded with tons of stuff. We didn't have enough kids, sot they took one of our teachers and split the kids between me and the other teacher (8 new kids + 1 new kid that just registered) and to top that off we had progress reports due Tuesday (just got back Monday). Man, just typing all of that makes me tired LOL!

    But the good news is that while I was home, I had time to create the novel study on How To Eat Fried Worms and I just posted it on TpT. I know you said that you read that book and wanted a book study for it. Just wanted to let you know. I hope everything calms down a little for both of us!

  2. I know how you feel! Swamped is an understatement for me these days... which is why I hardly post anymore.

    Thanks for letting me know you made that unit! I have already added it to my wishlist so that when we are ready to start chapter books I can DL it. I can't wait!
