Extended Sale

Looks like lots of people are extending their TPT sales through the weekend so we waved the magic wand and decided to do the same!  Hope you go and check out the bargains.

Both of us spent the day at our first inservice day to discuss the common core standards and what changes that will bring to our district.  It was a day of lots of talk and head filling thoughts.  Even though we feel like our committees accomplished things we were both thinking about the TO DO lists we have waiting in our classrooms.

I have finally checked off getting most of my full year projects copied ... repeated tasks, data binder graphs, math tests, timed tests, spelling lists, journal papers, journal dividers, portfolio pages, letter papers, assignment notebooks, math journals etc.  One new thing I made for this year was an All About Me Journal.  In the past, I have done a few activities that have given the kids a chance to tell and show more about themselves.  This year I am going to designate one day a week of our journal time to "All About Me" time.  I am looking forward to giving the kids even more time to really think and explore more topics about themselves.  Here is a picture of a few of the pages.  Check out the preview of the full year journal at our TPT store... on sale until Sunday!
