I apologize and some BIG news!

O my lanta ... I can't believe how long it has been since I've been on here. I have some valid reasons though.

  • Buying a house.
  • Moving into said house.
  • Furnishing said house.
  • Painting said house.
  • Decorating said house.
  • Finishing up the year with my sanity.
  • Emotionally preparing myself for summer (aka being student-and-schedule-less).

Whew. Basically the house thing took over and I was just trying to adjust to being a first time home owner with new bills, responsibilities (like mowing a yard for my first time ever!) and SO much more room to work with. 

Now the BIG news I have for you is that I am no longer teaching second grade but instead I will be LOOPING up with my same kiddos to third grade. I am beyond excited and am absolutely thrilled to not only have my class again but to have my entire team loop up as well. We are basically all-stars and my students were kicking some serious bootay when it came to data. I am nervous to officially be in a "testing" grade but aren't all grades testing grades in a way - if not the actual test than prepping them for it, yea?

Either way - I've got a lot planned this summer when it comes to creating things for the new TEKS/Curriculum I get to cover. I am super excited to be able to go more into depth in certain subjects and to break out more of those chapter books! I will be aligning all of my stuff to the Common Core as well (since Texas just has to be different and go with the TEKS) to make it useful in other classrooms as well so be on the look out.

Have you looped with a class before? I would love to hear your feedback, likes, dislikes and suggestions about it all! Please comment or email me to fill me in on what you think! 

Thanks all! Hope you're having a wonderful summer and fun Friday!
