Already thinking about August...

Like so many of you, I have only been on summer break for 1 week and my brain is already thinking about next year. I honestly think it's mostly from allowing myself to relax. I will be out tanning or in the middle of the great book I am reading (Fall of Giants by Ken Follet in case you are wondering) and POP into my head will come an idea out of nowhere that of course I have to hop on my computer and start messing with. But the beauty is that I have the time to do it! I don't care what anyone says, summer is wonderful and teachers deserve every minute of it!!

I am finally, officially packed away in my classroom. Lights off, keys turned in, done. It's a strange feeling to end the year and leave all my stuff...this is a new (welcome) experience for me :)

I'm going to try to settle into a more regular blogging schedule, but at the moment I honestly have nothing more to's that relaxed brain of mine haha. Anyway, here's some of the stuff I have been working on getting ready for next year.

I am making sight word practice packs and I just finished the first one. We use Treasures at my school (for the next year anyway) so I am using that word list and going through the sequence of the year. I will probably add some other commonly used sight words that I might have missed in the last pack.

I also made a pack of number sequence puzzles. We used puzzles like these during my dino unit and the kids loved them! I have to admit I was a little excited about breaking out the fall clip art...I'm a little obsessed with fall (even though I live in sunny, GREEN, Florida!!).
