The Sunday Scoop Link Up

I am once again linking up with the fantastic Teaching Trio for their Sunday Scoop Link Up!

3 Things I Have to Do:

1.  It is a review week in our reading series this week (HALLELUJAH!!)  which is awesome...more time to do Thanksgiving activities!  However, I have got to narrow down my lesson plans.  I am the queen of WAY over-planning.  Right now, my lesson plans include enough activities for at least three weeks of Thanksgiving learning!

2.  I had a reminder go off on my phone this morning that I need to pick up more brown construction paper.  Why did I set the reminder to go off on Sunday and not Saturday when teacher supply type stores are actually open???  I will never know!  So, it will be off to Big Box Store to buy a multi-pack of construction paper and have some of my fast finishers on their Morning Work sort through it tomorrow morning!

3.  Grocery Store Run...this one will be quick.  It is just for essentials, like coffee!  We get the week of Thanksgiving off (another HALLELUJAH!), so I will be heading home to my parents house next weekend.  

2 Things I Hope To Do:

1.  I have got to finish up my Wonders Unit 3 Roll & Read...I will need to use that myself as soon as we get back from Thanksgiving Break!

Coming Soon!!  Unit 2 can be found in my TPT store.
I also HAVE to finish and upload my Racing Through Number Bonds set.  Let me tell you, this one has been giving me fits!  I am down to the last page in this set.  It is a page for a data notebook (or wall display, or whatever you like!) where students chart their progress in mastering number bonds 5-20.  I've been trying to make a cutesy page for it, but I just don't think it's going to happen...I keep coming back to a grid!  Oh well!

2.  I LOVE teaching through the winter holidays!!!  The problem is, again, I over plan!  There are SO many things I want to fit in, but I need to narrow it down.  Anyone else have this problem?

1 Thing I'm Happy To Do:

1.  It is a special reading week at our school, which means every day this week is a dress up day!  WOO-HOO!!!!!  Comfortable clothes every day this week...I'm so excited.  Tomorrow is Warm-Up to Reading Day, which equals SWEATS!!!  Yes, please and thank you!

What are you happy to do this week?


  1. Oh how I wish it was a comfy clothes week for us- I've just mentioned getting my outfits organised in my Sunday Scoop post- it's just yet another thing to add to my never ending Sunday night list! I hope you narrow your craft ideas down- I love this time of year but totes sympathise! Have a super week Xx

    1. Thanks Laura! My Sunday night list is getting longer by the minute...I am the queen of procrastination!

  2. Oh how I wish every week was comfy clothes week! We only get Wed-Fri off for Thanksgiving but for the first time EVER, I'm taking Mon-Tues as well so we can go to my in-laws for the whole week! I'm looking forward to having the entire week off! Have a great Sunday!

    1. Good for you, taking some time off! My last school was the same with only Wed.-Friday off. I feel very lucky to get the whole week. Thanks for the comment!

  3. Sweats and Yoga pants sounds so good...have a great week!


  4. I used to live really close to a grocery store so any excuse was a good one for me to quickly nip there and get whatever was missing in the house (usually some nice dessert!!!)... My nearest store is 55 mins away now(!), so grocery shopping has become a real expedition these days!!! Hope you get your units done, I REALLY need to make a start on a new TpT product, it's been on my to-do list for too long! Procrastination needs to stop ;)

    Have a wonderful day wearing your comfy clothes :)
