My Summer Bucket List! Linky Party ~ Hadar, April and Teri are having a linky party!
1. I would love to finally make my library organized and user friendly. I'll have the tools for the project after the school year starts but I can begin to sort and level all the books this summer. Here are a wonderful Pinterest idea.
2. I have a rocking chair waiting to be painted and made classroom ready since last summer. My hope is that I can work on it and have it ready to go in the Fall.
3. I must organize my files. I have the materials to do it, I just never seem to have the time to get it done.
4. I'll also being doing a lot of playing with my little boy. I have already made him a water sensory tub, he loves it.
It looks like this one from Etsy. I'll also be looking on TpT and the many blogs out there for early learner activities.
5. Also some summer reading. This year was a bit tough since some of the students found it difficult to be caring and respectful towards each other and I thought that this book might help with next year's class.
6. My hope is that my husband and I can relax, enjoy our family and last but not least recover from surgery. He will be having some dental work and I'll be going under the knife.
7. While enjoying bed rest I hope to get acquainted with my blog and making some freebies. It was pretty great to get nominated for fascinating teaching blog, considering I have been away too long. I actually couldn't remember the post,Team Building Ideas, that got me the nomination and so it has reminded me I have a lot to share. I just need to make time to share it.

    I have TONS and TONS of activities I need to organize!

    If you want to read a good book about helping your kiddos be more kind, helpful, and respectful Conscious Discipline is amazing! I share about it on my blog and am going to try and do a book study with it this summer.

    I would love for you to come visit me when you get the chance. =)

  9. Here's to a successful surgery. I have been on recovery leave since February (yuck). I know how daunting it can be to face the knife and that LONG road back to feeling good again. So . . . here's a little cyber hug to wish you well! Glad I found you :)
