I feel like such a slacker. As Staci (Going Nutty) would say, I think I have PTT. But I feel so guilt about it. Like to the point that I woke up last night in a sweat after dreaming that someone told me that my blog had disappointed them because basically I haven't posted anything lately with real teachery substance. Now I know that this was just a dream, but if you do feel like this I am sorry. I have the Diving Into Common Core series planned, I just haven't done anything with it...
My personal life has just been so crazy this summer.... like you honestly wouldn't believe. I'm just praying that everything comes together and that things continue to stay calm for a while.
I'll leave you tonight with my favorite thing from the beginning of the month.... Farley's Currently!
Loving... I am absolutely loving that I am about to go to bed. I have been watching my sister's son for the past couple of weeks... while her and her husband work... lets just say he is a handful. I want children, I really really do... but he is making me rethink that option. It has been said several times that he is "hitting his 'Terrible Two's' super early!" But he's a cutie... and when he smiles or lays his head on my chest, it makes it all worth it.
Okay... so one of the books that I was introduced to in college was Beautiful Blackbird by Ashley Bryan. I love this book! It is a great book to use when teaching adjectives... or teaching about how we are all equal no matter what we look like... or even for talking about illustrations (and then having students make their very own pictures using just construction paper)! I love it and I definitely recommend it as a read-a-loud for your classroom!
Okay ladies... and gent... that is all I have for you tonight! To all of my new followers, welcome! I can't believe that I am almost at 200 followers!
Remember... if you don't mind... let me know what you think/would do about my Alphabet Packet problem! I would be ever so greatful!
