To Do List -- Be Gone!

I'm linking up with Fabulous Fourth Grade Froggies' linky party. 

Summer is ticking away. Here are some of the things that I need to get movin' on!

  1. Create Poetry Pots-print out the words on magnetic sheets
  2. Find some interesting reader's theaters for fifth graders
  3. Clean out my 2 file cabinets...Do I really need all that stuff?
  4. Make crate seats for my new low table.
  5. Print labels for science notebook, writing journal and WIP (Work in Progress) folder
  6. Make and laminate cute "Hollywood" themed math station signs.
  7. Put together Daily 5 binder
  8. Put together math anecdotal notes binder
  9. Clean out and reorganize teacher binder
  10. Look at new curriculum documents
  11. Create QR code lessons
  12. Investigate Edmodo...Do I want to use this site with my students?
  13. Clean up class website 
  14. Read Engaging Students by Phillip C. Schlechty 
  15. Create Back to School/Open House presentation
  16. Design a "Where are you going?" magnetic board
  17. Renew my driver's license!

I have to stop! This list could keep on going! I will just drive myself nutty if I keep listing. The plus side to the list is that I can go to my classroom at any time to take care of these items. Last summer, our school was under major renovations. We were allowed in a few days before our first day for teachers. Then, it was all about finding your things throughout the school. It was a mad scramble!

The plan of action...check off a few a day. Starting with the driver's license!

Right's all about family, pool time, friends, reading and relaxation.

What's on your list? Link up and share.

  5. I'm a first year teacher so I feel like I have a ton to do even things I don't KNOW to do. I forgot to put a book I have to read before school starts on mine and saw a book on your list and thought of it.
