Hello blogger land.....as you read this, make sure you read all the way to the bottom. 1 Freebie, 2 giveaways!
Many of you are already back in full school mode. I love summer break but I so wish I could just have my room finished. It's hanging over my head right now and there's nothing I can do about it.
I got a tentative class list on Thursday and started filling in names in all my teacher documents; returned papers, contact list, class list, tentative reading groups, labels, etc. Yesterday my Facebook site just reached 200 followers. Make sure you head over to my site to get my 200 follower FREEBIE. It will only be up until August 24th! (Click the screen image below to take you to my Facebook page.

Here is what is coming up in my world
August 17-18: Anniversary weekend trip to Charlotte, NC to see I Love Lucy on Broadway, go shopping at IKEA, and go to Carowinds with my cousins! Soooo excited for one last woo rah before returning to school.
August 19: PALS training with my school district. I love the PALS assessment. If you don't know about it, visit their website! It is a required test in VA that assesses spelling, WRI, a passage reading, and comprehension. Such great information for us and they are explaining new things at the training so it should be awesome! PALS is now a PREK-5th grade assessment.
August 20: DO NOTHING DAY! Go shopping, relax, get a pedi with hubby (anniversary tradition and it's wonderful)....who knows!
August 21: 1st day allowed in my classroom!
August 22: My 4th wedding anniversary. Husband has to work so I'm heading back to my classroom!
August 23: Classroom day again!
August 26-30: Teacher work week!
August 31: Neighborhood cookout
September 3: 1st student day
It's all coming so fast but I'm happy. This being my 7th year, and my first FULL-Year doing Whole Brain Teaching, I actually can't contain myself! I know WBT is going to make this year AMAZING!
