I'm not sure about you guys, but the last week or two have flown by. I LOVE teaching, not that you would doubt that, but it is truly where my heart is, but for the first time ever I wish summer was just a few weeks longer. You can ask my family, friends, or the people I work with - I have never ever said that!
I realized today I feel that way because summer is flying by and I still have so many things on my To Do List. Yet, what do I do? I keep adding more and more to my list, but then I spend the day piddling on Facebook or looking at pictures on Instagram. I'm a blogger, so I love looking at these things! They are entertaining! Plus, it has connected me with so many new friends. Yep, there's a but... BUT I am not getting any work done and I think I almost have a doctorate in being lazy and wasting time. So, here's what I came up with yesterday. I will blog, but for a few days, I am turning off my Facebook and Instagram and focusing on knocking out this forever long list. Today was my first day without Facebook and it's funny, but when you intentionally avoid getting on it, you begin to realize just how many times a day you check it. I have to say, I have gotten more done and I am definitely not as stressed. I told my hubby that after my little hiatus, I may be very intentional about only checking it during a certain time frame a day and being done. So, I said all of that to say, if your list is getting longer and longer and your summer is getting shorter and shorter, you aren't alone. I feel your pain, friend! This is my solution to lengthening my summer a little and to be honest, saving my naps because boy, do I LOVE my daily naps!
Now, I have news! I am ALMOST done with my Calendar Math. I went back and drew some of the graphics myself so that I don't have to worry about if they are locked down or not. If I'm the clip art artist, then it's okay for some clip art not to be locked down, right? I hope to get it posted tomorrow or Wednesday.
Until then, here is my other newest packet. It completely slipped my mind that I forgot to share it. The two top pages (Capitalization and Punctuation 1 and Categorize) are free in my preview. Right now, it is only language arts, but I am planning to add math to it later. If you get it now, when I add the math, I will add an update and make sure you know so you don't miss it. You can click on any of the pictures and it will take you to my packet. I am planning to use most of these sheets as my assessments, homework, or as review during the first nine weeks.
Hope you guys are enjoying your summer! I'm off to watch "42" with the hubby!
