Goal 1:read at least 50 books from school. While I didn't finish this goal, I did read nearly 50 books this summer, but many of them were adult books, not books from my classroom. However, I did discover the Alix London mystery series and another cozy mystery series, both of which I look forward to continuing.
Goal 2: clean the clost. I already posted my hugely successful pictures :)
Goal 3: write the portfolio. This is my weakest goal. I did get a bunch written, but I did not finish the portfolio. My new goal is to finish a rough draft of entry 1 by the start of the year....which is next Tuesday. Wish me luck!
Goal 4: search classroom deals. This is the ideal time for this goal, and I am on it. The paper hoarding has begun!
Goal 5: I feel very successful here. I attended a conference, read two books, and aligned six curriculum maps. I am ready to help my students meet standard!
Some other cool things I did this summer include:
Learning to do a waterfall braid
Learning to crochet! I have wanted to do this for so long!
Traveling a bit, including exploring my new home state (or not so new, but more permanent)
Helping Willie get ready to go back to school
I am sad to see summer go, but happy to be back with an exciting new class and awesome new co-teacher!
