Can you believe Sunday is here already?! It's time for another Sunday Scoop link-up with the Teaching Trio...
Even though I have some planning time on Monday mornings, I ALWAYS find things in the classroom that I wasn't able to finish the week before. So I'm trying to "complete" all of my planning on Sunday. I think I sleep better without worrying about a long to-do list on Monday mornings.
Apparently after spending a year living in Italy and eating (more than) my fair share of pasta and tiramisu, my dress pants have decided to shrink! Can you believe it?! So, instead of hoping I will fit into them again one day, I've decided to give my wardrobe a little update by finding some new pieces. I don't feel too guilty since I've been wearing the same six pairs of trousers for several years now.
Have you read any of the Divergent series? I've really been getting into young adult science fiction these days. My fourth graders got me hooked, and it became a great way to build relationships with several of my (boy) students. Alex Rider books did WONDERS to generate interest and discussion for the few reluctant readers in my classroom. Now that I'm teaching second grade, I guess I'm just reading these books for my own pleasure. :) Do you have any recommendations?
