The Teaching Trio started a new linky party today that's especially great for those of us who need a little more organization in our lives. It's pretty self-explanatory, so I'll just go on with it. Click on the picture to link up!
HAVE TO DO:
Our house hasn't recovered completely from us going back to work. Of course, I could be cleaning right now...
I finally got individual results for all the kids who failed last year's SOL (well, for one grade - my biggest case-load), but unfortunately similar items aren't already grouped. I need to sit down and sort them, then I have to make lists of students who struggled with each skill so we can start creating groups based on that. It's going to take a while. I probably should have brought it home to work on this weekend, but I didn't.
I can't pull kids until I have the forms, so this is important. But I also don't want the forms to get lost in the mass of paperwork that goes home on the first week. They'll go out tomorrow, and hopefully I can start with most, if not all, of my kids by next week!
HOPE TO DO:
I've only read The Giver once a few years ago, and I wasn't quite prepared for it. I actually didn't like it, but I'm pretty sure I will this time around, especially with Hunger Games and Divergent. I brought it home and just need to find the free time.
Yes, I want to watch football while my boys (including the hubs) sleep. Steven isn't really a sports fan, and Keagan is 2. I love football, so it will be fun to watch while I clean and do other things!
HAPPY TO DO:
I did a summer committee for the state back at the end of July, but it takes about 4-6 weeks to get the paychecks in the mail. Mine came in earlier this week, so I have some extra play money after we split most of it into savings and debt-reduction. There are so many "wants", though, that I need to prioritize and price-check to determine the best way to spend it. It's burning a hole in my pocket!
As far as giveaways go, check my past few posts to enter for one of MANY prizes in my 1000 follower giveaway. Day 1's giveaway ends tomorrow night, and then they will all start closing out at midnight each day. Hurry before you miss your chance!
