One thing I am looking forward to this month is a little getaway we are taking to celebrate my husband’s birthday.
I have been scouring Pinterest and the internet to find new project ideas for Mother’s Day. What are you all making this year?
In a dream world, I would get a full day (without students) to get completely caught up on some projects that have been put to the bottom of the priority list. Then, I would take another full day to get my crafty fix with scrapbooking.
Summer Bucket List
Family Adventures – Now that my daughter is 2, I want to take her on some little adventures and mini field trips (zoo, aquarium, etc.).
Common Core – Next year we go into full implementation even though our curriculum does not align very well. I want to become more aware of each standard and what it really looks like at second grade. Not to mention my grade level team is putting together some resource binders for next year, too. Thank goodness for a team with a common goal!!
Book Study – I loved doing the online book study for Guided Math last summer. I’m interested in doing another one, but not really sure which path I want to travel down as far as topic. Anyone planning or thinking about an online book study, too?
My happy thought for the day…30.5 school days to go and yes, I am counting down!!
Thank you so much to Patty for helping me proof this one. This is a 40+ page file on rounding. Rounding to the nearest 10 and 100 is in the 3rd grade common core, but my second graders still have to successfully complete ballpark estimates as part of our math curriculum. If you are looking for some extra rounding practice, click on the picture below. This will be on sale for the next few days, too! Hop on over and check it out 🙂

Look at this great book sharing idea for Valentine's Day! It's called Blind Date with a Book. Students can wrap up a good book and write a description on the outside. Then others can choose a new book based on the description!A BLIND DATE WITH A BOOK! 😍 Wrap the books and write a description on each of them- have the kiddos read the descriptions and pick a book for a blind reading date! How memorable! What an amazing idea for #valentinesday! Thank you for sharing Jessica! I see so many teachers trying this out! @thegreenelementaryteacher LOVE! #books #reading #library #blinddate ...
