Here is Kim's linky.
I "used" Reader's, Writer's and Math Notebooks this year...but not nearly as frequently or meaningfully as I should have. Between Pinterest/TpT/TN I think that I will be all set in terms of ideas for next year, I just need to myself use them regularly.
Blogging and Instagram have made me a bit of a better picture-taker this year, but I still forget to take pictures most of the time. Between blogging pictures and wanting to use pictures in end-of-the-year projects, I realize just how frequently I SHOULD be taking pictures.
This year the only real research projects that we did were biographies and animals. With CCSS, I know I should be doing more, and the kiddos actually really enjoyed both projects. It is now going to be a matter of fitting them in somewhere throughout the year.
The printables that come with our reading series are not the greatest, so I really want to buckle-down and make some of my own units to align with our reading series and CCSS to get my kiddos thinking!
Clearly writing mile-long posts once-a-week isn't working out too well; I must post more frequently and not so long in the future.
1. Get to the beach.
**I was so hoping to get to the beach over the long weekend, but Mother Nature had other plans for New England. This coming weekend looks great so far ::knock on wood:: so hopefully I will get a beach day in!
2. Create some TpT items. My store is itty-bitty and definitely needs to grow this summer.
3. Organize everything that I have created/purchased/downloaded this year into standards based binders.
4. Relax, see friends, go to country concerts, have F-U-N! :o)
