Sunday Scoop - 1/17/15

Well, another week has flown by which means that it is time to link up with the Teaching Trio for their Sunday Scoop.

Thankfully, I managed to get a lot of work done yesterday so there isn't too much on my to do list for today!

Have to...  
I am the supervisor for our school's yearbook club.  Which means I get the fun chores like going through the superlative suggestions and picking which we should use.  Then I type them up, hand them out, and count the answers to find the winners.  It's fun, but time consuming! 

I hate vacuuming so it's the chore that I tend to put off.  Since I put it off yesterday, I really need to do it today.

My 3rd grade reading is working on an author study of Roald Dahl.  We are currently reading James and the Giant Peach so I have activities ready for that.  It's the rest of the books we are planning to read that I need to prep for!

Hope to...
 I am hoping to get a chance to work on some cowboy themed products to use with my 1st graders this week.  I'm planning to make a synonym matching game and a contraction center.

I have a hard time planning ahead with my blogging so I am going to try to get some blogs planned and typed out.  I would like to be ahead of the game this week if possible!

Happy to...
Hopefully I will get a chance to catch up on some reading this week.  In the spirit of our Dahl author study, I have been reading The Irregulars by Jennet Conant.  The book details Dahl's life as a British spy in the United States during World War II.  It's an extremely interesting true story!

Don't forget to head over to my last post and enter my $10 TPT gift certificate giveaway!  I'll announce the winner on Friday!


  1. The yearbook is a time-consuming task. One of my best teaching friends does our school's yearbook, and she spends countless hours making sure everything is perfect. I am sure they appreciate all of your efforts! I also hope you get to relax and read a little. Have a great week!


  2. I know what you mean with scheduling posts, I am very preoccupied, but now that I feel slightly better, then I am going to do that as well.

    Have an awesome week!!!

  3. I love scheduling posts! It makes my life so much easier during the week when I'm tired and can't think straight to write posts. I do most of my scheduling on the weekend. I've even started scheduling Facebook posts and Tweets so I'm still present on those social media accounts. Enjoy your week!

  4. I need to get better about scheduling posts too! As for the vacuuming, I've been successful in making that one of my hubby's weekly tasks, but it's a pretty good trade because I do all the laundry and he does all of the vacuuming! :-) Have a wonderful week!
