There have been so many linky parties going around that it almost feels like summer to me! I love having this extra time to blog, blog hop, and basically snoop around in bloggy world!
I have gotten SO many more great ideas for 2013 goals from everyone who has already participated in my Resolution Solution Linky Party that I've decided to set even MORE goals! I'm linking up with Michelle at Making it as a Middle School Teacher for her 13 in 2013 Linky!
I read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn at the beach this summer and loved it! If you read thrillers, I highly recommend it AND it was just announced that Reese Witherspoon is going to produce and star in the movie version! Woot! Well, last week I read one of her other two books, Sharp Objects. It was good, too....a little darker, but I like those thrillers! So, her third book is also on my reading list...already downloaded on my Kindle - just have to find the time to read it now that it's time to get back into the grind!
Most of my professional goals have do do with Whole Brain Teaching. I have loved EVERY aspect that I've implemented this year, so I just want to continue with this journey!
My classroom "must-have" is whiteboard paint. I saw it at Lowe's this summer and thought "brilliant" - I think I may want to paint my tables in my room with it! I know the kids can write directly on the tables with markers, but our tables are a bit dark and I'd like to give this a try! This kind of ties in with desk nametags...I'm not sure why I'm still using these. I've thought all along that just writing names directly to the desks is brilliant...just gotta do it!
This is a short post since the hubby is almost home and we're going to settle in for some college football, but I wanted to do a quick giveaway...related to football!
The Super Bowl is coming up and I LOVE setting aside one day to do football-themed activities - the boys eat this up and it's filled with fun, educational activities, too!
I'm giving TWO FOLLOWERS a chance to win the SUPERBOWL UNIT from Teacher's Clubhouse!!
To enter, you just need to do the following three things....
1. Follow my blog (hopefully you already do!)
2. Follow the Teacher's Clubhouse TpT shop
3. Guess my husband's favorite NFL team and/or my favorite NFL team
The first person to guess my husband's team wins the unit (his is super easy!) The first person to guess my favorite NFL team wins the unit (mine is tougher since it changes quite often depending on the players). Be sure to specify whose favorite team you think it is - you can take a guess on both!
Just leave a comment with your guesses!! GOOD LUCK!!
