After I started my recent "To Do Before School Starts list" linky party, my list just started growing and growing. To be honest I was a bit lazy this weekend but I need to get my rear in geaSr starting today or else I will have nothing done.
I am able to knock off my to do list 2 things. First is my whole class writing journals. I made twelve journals to use as part of my "writing" component of Daily 5. I am thinking about writing an entry on the first page of each so the students can see an example but I am not sure yet....just another addition to my to do list!
***UPDATE*** - no need to wait for the August newsletter to download the journal covers. You can download them now by clicking here
Next I made some new numbers to label my cubbies, mailboxes, etc. with to match my new theme. Printed, cut, laminated, and cut again, ready to go! I think I will attached them on the cubbies with velcro so I can change them out when my theme changes. Right now I just use the colored dot sticker labels with a number written on them that some people use for garage sales....not the cutest! These new numbers are about the size of a quarter.
That's it for now since I need to get back to my to do list right away or maybe after a little summer time nap............boy, I am going to miss my naps when I go back to work!
