My Summer Goals

Monica over at I Heart Grade 3 is hosting an awesome linky each week this summer.  Each week will cover a different summer topic or theme.  I am so excited to be linking up with her!

To be honest, I hadn't thought much about summer goals until I sat down to write this post.  So this topic is perfect for me because it is forcing me to list some goals for myself. 

Personal Goals
 *Drink more water every day and less coffee. I often forget to drink water throughout the day which leaves me parched and super thirsty right around bedtime.  Obviously this is not healthy so it's something I need to work on.

*Read Peter Pan out loud to my son. He has been asking me to read this to him.  I have a huge copy with beautiful illustrations, and I can't wait to start it!

*Watch less Netflix and read more books instead.  I have a tendency to binge watch t.v. series that I like during my down time.  I am planning to choose reading over t.v. more often this summer.

Teaching Goals
 *Read at least 3 books about teaching.  I was given a huge box full of teaching related books at the end of the school year.  I love learning about how to be a better teacher during the summer.

*Prep the majority of the centers I plan to use next year. I have so many task card sets and center games that I have either made or gotten from TpT.  The problem is that many of them are still stuck on my computer.  I want to prep all the ones I plan to use next year and sort them so they are ready to go.

TpT/Blogging Goals
*Reach 100 followers on TpT.  Right now, I have close to 90 followers.  I am really hoping to be able to hit the 100 follower mark this summer!

*Blog at least 2 times every week (if not more).  When life gets busy, my blog is usually the first thing that gets neglected.  No matter how busy my summer gets, I am going to try to blog more consistently.

Make sure you stop by I Heart Grade 3 to read about the summer goals of other amazing educators.
