Obviously Amanda and I can’t get enough of these linky parties, seeing we join them like every post….but today I’m joining in on a new one hosted by Matt from Digital: Divide & Conquer and Jeanette from Third Grade Galore. Their new linky is: Win, Loss & Cost where you pick one thing for each heading.
The weather has been great this week in Chicago! I love summer but generally it’s way too humid to really enjoy being outdoors, but this week it’s been in the upper 70s and super pleasant. We did have a little bit of rain, but I can’t complain. Obviously I’m very excited about this weather situation seeing this is the 2nd time I’ve blogged about it in a week!
Um…this is hard for me because I always try to be positive, so…my loss happens to be that I have yet to actually sit down and dive into these two books that I was hoping to be done with already. I just want to get some refresher ideas on guided reading & really learn more about F&P since this was our first year using the benchmark kits, but all I’ve done so far is open them, breeze through them for a few minutes and then move on to something else. I’m thinking this might be my week to actually sit and read through them–also hoping my cute little yellow notebook-ish thing will motivate me because it has lots of fun post its and writing paper in there that is just waiting to be used! 🙂 Maybe you all can help me out too– have you read either of these two books? They are definitely good reads and worth my time, right?
We have a Savers right nearby my house and after doing a little de-cluttering this week, my hubby and I made a trip there to donate our giveaway pile and decided to step inside and take a look at the book collection to hopefully score some for our classrooms. They have a buy 4, get your 5th book free + 20% off when you donate items, so we ended up with 15 books for just $8! My hubby got 10 chapter books for his middle schoolers and I got 5 new picture books for my little friends! If you have a Savers by you, I recommend stopping by for some new “used” books for your classroom! I got the idea to stop by Savers from Kayla over at Meet Miss Parker– she really knows how to find a great shopping deal!
