Happy Friday everyone!! It has been WAY to long…seriously I don’t think I’ve done a Five for Friday since school got out in June! Whaaattt!?!?!?! Thank you to Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching for this wonderful linky!
THIS boy turned 2 this week!! I can’t believe my baby is 2! This was the first birthday where he was excited to open his presents. We got him this IKEA circus tent and a Mickey Mouse chair. We put all his presents inside his tent. He had such a great time! We are having his pirate birthday party this weekend! We can’t wait!
We have been having a WONDERFUL summer here in the PNW! Yesterday was the first day we had a significant amount of rain since June 1st!!!! With this crazy, warm weather we have been outside playing everyday! When we aren’t at my mom’s in the pool…we are in the sprinkler! This is a second round of sprinkler play after dinner. Apparently she didn’t get enough to drink at dinner…
Well…I went back this week…. Normally, I avoid school from when we get out in June until we have to be back in August. This year I am trying to be on top of things. I brought these two helpers with me and we put out all the furniture. When I say “we” I mean “me.” The rest of “we” were talking on the fluency phones and hiding place value blocks around my room:)
We worked out little tushies off to get our guided reading packs done before the sale. Now, I can test them out on my daughter. She is going into Kindergarten in the Fall and we have been working hard this summer to get ready. These guided reading packs are great for her. She loves to do “work.” I don’t want to be a pusher, but as long as she keeps saying “Momma, I have to do my work today!” I will keep supplying the work:)

Now that we are done with our big project, the guided reading packs, I can get to my reading. Reading With Meaning is one of my FAVORITES!!! I read it each summer. I just finished No More Independent Reading Without Support. It’s a great, quick read. I am half way through The Morning Meeting Book. I’ve read this one before but it’s been awhile. Last, I really want to revamp my math instruction. I have a HUGE stack of math books to read but Making Problems, Creating Solutions is first on my list:)
I hope that you are all having a fabulous summer! I’m off to relax before I have to get into full birthday party mode.
