July 31st is the end of the summer. Oh, I know the hot days will still come and that, "technically", I am still on vacation. BUT... It's time to face the music and start thinking about what I want to wrap up at home and what needs to be done for school. August 21st is the first day; I can get back into my classroom on August 12th. That is soon. Too soon. Oh, the painful reality of it all!
Five professional goals I have set to get me organized and back in the groove (because, hey, I have to start somewhere!)...
1. I actually did something school related this week. I signed up for the annual Alphabet Exchange over at First Grade Found Me. I LOVE this project and can't thank Chrissy enough for organizing it each year. It's a fabulous way to kick off the new school year. The kids just love it!
4. Same with the pile of manuals and books under my desk. Things need to be done with those. I forget what things, but I'm sure I dragged them home for a reason.
5. Back to School packets. I need to update and print a copy so I am ready to go when I have access to a copy machine. I am hoping this is the least challenging thing on the list.
