August Currently and a Back to School Sale!

Happy August Friends....or is it? 
I went back to work LAST MONDAY...the 28th of JULY and the first day with the kids was Friday! 

I have been so busy I haven't even taken pictures yet! Which is SO unlike me! I promise to take some class pics soon! I really love my room this year and how it turned out! 

BUT I am moving rooms AGAIN in December! A new building is being built and it will be done during Winter Break. And I was lucky enough to be chosen to go to the brand new building! I can't wait!

So many of you know, I am back in 3rd grade this year:) SO happy to be back in my favorite grade! I looped with most of my kiddos! Since I work at a military base school many of my families left for a different location. So I was able to keep 13 out of my 21. I have 5 brand new kiddos this year and they are all so sweet! Those 5 kids are sped and I am doing inclusion this year. I have the 3rd grade sped teacher full time in my room! I am looking forward in co-teaching this year. Once I move to the new building it is designed for all grades to work together in a blended environment! It will hold 2 2nd, 2 3rd, 2 4th and 2 5th. I am so excited to be a part of this! sorry...onto my currently! 

I am trying to get as much work done today as possible! I have dinner plans with the family tonight for my father-inlaws birthday. I really don't think the TV is helping!

If you follow me on IG you already heard the news!
Lots to think about in my life right now! We have finally got the news to start the house hunting process and we couldn't be more excited! Even though it is stressful! I can't wait to have a place to call mine! 

A NEW CAR SO BAD! I have to get ours fixed and just don't have the cash! It stinks! I would much rather just get a new car! First we have to get a new car for my hubby since we are sharing a car. But that will have to wait until we get our house! Can't money just grow on trees???

I have to do my plans! This first full week is devoted to:
WBT rules
Daily 5
Math Workshop intro
Math Assessment
Reading assessments
Writing assessment
and I am sure some fun activities in there!

1st day

  1. Congratulations on house hunting! We are in the process of selling our first home right now so we can find our forever home! :) Good luck to y'all!! I can't believe you start back in JULY!! We don't start back until August 12... When do y'all get out of school? Good luck on your new year!! :)

  2. Hi Tonya! I moved into a new building this summer, so I understand the anxiety and excitement that comes with the big move! I'm like you and LOVE third grade! I taught third for even years, but am moving to fourth this year. Good luck with everything and I will be following you through your new journey!

  3. House hunting is so so exciting! That is such wonderful news!
    Working on a military base sounds like a very interesting experience. I'm sure it's so different from public schools in other areas.
    Good luck in your school year! You are so so lucky to have the sped teacher in your room full time, and getting to move to a brand new building will definitely make this year an exciting one!
