I am linking up with Deanna Jump for her Top Ten Things I Want to do this Summer linky. I love making to do lists to keep me on track throughout the year, but I think my summer to do list has got to be my favorite to do list each year!
Hanging with these boys!
It seems like I spend so much time with my students during the year, I don't get quite enough time to spend with my own boys. Although that should change a bit next year (I will have Luke in my classroom!). I am looking forward to lots of quality time with my little men!
Especially this one since he leaves for college in August!
VEGAS! I am super excited to be spending time and getting to meet many of my blogging besties in real life at the Teachers Pay Teachers conference in July.
One of my co-workers talked me into signing up for a STEM training this summer. Before working at my current school I worked at a Middle School that was a STEM Academy with a major focus on STEM. My current school is not a STEM school per se, but I know that my students loved any science and math activities we did this year, so I am looking forward to learning some new ways to introduce STEM to my younger students.
Summer is my time to get my read on! I am excited to be participating in a few book studies this summer, but I will also be squeezing in a few non- PD related reads as well.
I hope to be spending more time here doing this:
I love Body Pump classes but we get so busy during the school year (especially during baseball seasons) that I often have to miss out. I see a lot of 10 AM sessions in my summertime future.
Every summer Tyler goes to baseball camp at the University I attended. This year Luke will be joining him as well.
Our school district is switching to a Balanced Literacy program based on Lucy Calkin's work. I will be attending training at the end of summer.
Re-decorating my classroom! I love matchy matchy things ( I know that is not a word, but I like it anyway). I want to match my classroom to my blog with an apple theme. I have done the apple theme in the past, but this year I will change up colors a bit. I've already bought the fabric for my boards and a few pieces from Target. I can't wait to show you when it's done!
We are going to take a mini-vacation to Monterey. The aquarium will be one of the spots we visit for sure.
I have never ever been into Ikea. I have driven by numerous times, but this summer I am going in! LOL!
4 more days and summer is here for me! Woo hoo! I can't wait to cross things off my list. What are your plans for the summer? Link up and share!
