I recently blogged over at my collaborative blog about modeling being a reader for your students. This is a subject near and dear to my heart and I urge you to check it out. I found it hard to be a teacher who encourages students to read without being a reader myself. How can I encourage them to read when I can't do it myself? At Adventures in Literacy Land, I shared how a dear teacher friend of mine showcased the books she was reading, ones she wanted to read, and what she had finished reading.
Oh' Boy 4th Grade. As part of her Currently she is asking for donations toward helping the animal flooding victims from Wimberly, TX. I am a definite animal lover and couldn't resist. Please consider helping the poor animals who have no where to go and who are missing their families.
I love the Fast and the Furious series of movies with Furious 7 being my favorite, but since it isn't available yet, I am settling for Furious 6. SCHOOL is OUT! This year has been fantastic and exhausting at the same time. While students are no longer at school, I still have some days I am working this week (since I am an instructional coach) to wrap it up and get ready for next year. So almost to the finish line :)
I am super excited about my school's theme for next year - Superheroes in Training. I am going to decorate my office with a Batman theme. I am also in charge of decorating the science lab but I am not sure what I want to do there. I am thinking maybe an Iron Man theme since he was an inventor. I would love for you to share any links/ideas in the comments to things that would help with our theme next year.
My summer lovin' has a theme of time. Time is precious and in short supply during the school year when I am trying to balance school and family. This summer I am going to take some time to spend with my ever-growing toddler. She learns so much so fast and I don't want to miss out.
Your turn to check out Farley's Currently party and join in the fun.
