Taking a Closer Look for March

Hey guys and dolls, how's it going?

The past three weeks have been crazy hectic, 

we've had holidays, delayed starts, early dismissals, 

not to mention snow and weather days.

I would say that hopefully next week everything will get back to normal,

but next Thursday is a half day for students, and they won't come to school next Friday.

Then it'll be two weeks to Spring Break!!



Sigh.....we have so much to do and so little time in which to do it!!

Anyways, moving on from my pity party (because truthfully I enjoyed the snow days).



I'm linking up with my buddies again to take a closer look at one of my March products!


This month I would like to talk about.....


There are four activities, one for each week of the month!!


I mainly use them in a pocket chart, but I have even seen them used

in a desktop center!! It's so versatile!

February Currently

Hey guys and dolls, how's it going?

I'm linking up with Farley again for this month's Currently!!



Ok, I'm wondering why no one told me about Fixer Upper!!!!

I have absolutely fallen in love with Chip and Joanna, and 

I wish that I lived in Texas so that they could renovate a house 

and make it awesome for me!!

Sigh......


I'm also loving anything HGTV!

I used to watch it all the time, but for some reason, I stopped!!

Well, a few months ago, I got hooked on Rehab Addict with Nicole Curtis,

and I got sucked back in to HGTV........but I ain't mad about it!!!


I'm thinking that I need to get ahead on a lot of stuff!!

You know how you're not necessarily behind, but you're not ahead either.....

I'm right in the thick of things and sometimes I feel as if I'm

juggling balls, and I could drop 1 or 2 at any minute!!!


I want to clean my house!!! 

Yeah, 'nuff said, you understand exactly what I mean!!!

Moving on....


I really need to buckle down and focus.....I have so many ideas in

my brain, and I need to just sit down, and make a plan as to

how I'm going to get all of it done!!!

Just do it already!!!!


My pageant name would be Ms. No Holds Barred.

I say this because I'm not one to volunteer my opinion about 

things and situation......but if you ask me........

you have to be prepared that I'm going all the way in!!!

You've been warned!!!


Hop on over and link up!!

Organization Blog Hop

Hey guys and dolls, how's it going?

I'm linking up with the Supergirls from Primary Powers!!!!

When you come back to school after Christmas,

somehow things start to get a little disorganized, so we thought

that now was the perfect time to do an organization blog hop!!



First off, I want to apologize for the pictures, 

who knew that trying to take pictures of things in sheet protectors

would turn out so horribly!!!



Today, I'm going to talk all about organizing those teacher resources!!

Previously, we were given everything that we could possibly need

for planning in this cumbersome binder that was humongous!!!!

I mean, really, I didn't even want to fool with it, because it was just that big!

And as well all know, ain't nobody got time for that!


So, I was sitting in a PD work session with my friend Brooklynn,

who is half of the awesome duo that is Markers & Mascara.

I looked over and saw this awesome binder, 

and of course I had to ask her what it was!


And do you know what she told me? She said that this was where she put

everything that she needed for lesson planning, and all

of a sudden I heard the heavens open up and angels singing!!

Now, I'm sitting there, thinking to myself.......

"Self, why didn't you think of this bright idea?!?!?!?!?!!"

Don't worry, my self didn't answer back!!

However, it got me to thinking, and I decided to create my own version!!

So let's take a tour to see what's inside!

(Now remember what I said about those pictures!!)


Of course, cute cover.....check!!!


First, I have my standards. I need those!!!

Then, I have all of my reading stuff, like sight words, assessment info, and

the comprehension skills and strategies that I definitely need!!

It helps me to plan, because I'll be honest, I don't necessarily use all of the

materials in our reading series, but this helps me to make sure that I am

covering the necessary skills using other materials.





Next up, I have my math standards and and the pacing guide from the county.


Then, it continues with writing, science and social studies.

It has helped me tremendously, and I take it home every night!

For your organizational freebie, here are some sheets to hopefully

help you to plan better and more efficiently!!
