This week I was able to attend a Whole Brain Teaching Conference with Coach B!  What an amazing experience!  Which spurred me to complete an Average Google Spreadsheet for when I start off with this program this coming school year.

 So - since I was on this high of Whole Brain this and teaching this - I decided to start on my students' data notebooks.  This took a little bit of time, but I think it is about how I want it, so I put it on TeachersPayTeachers.  I am hoping to get the majority of the things that I have made throughout the year up there.  It is not as well made as blogs that I frequently visit, but I figured you can't get anywhere if you don't first try.  So try I will, and here is my first item on TeachersPayTeachers that actually has a Title Page!

So as I am just gearing up with my School Preparations I had a little set back and then almost with in the same time, I felt it as a blessing, that I am going to move classrooms again.  I had a break last year, but I moved the year before.  I am moving to the classroom next door to where I am at, but instead of the one window I currently have, I will now have TWO.  I am so STOKED about having more natural light.  I have missed that these past two years.  I have also figured out what my classroom theme is as well.  WESTERN.  Here are some of the things I am planning on doing!Perfect for my western theme---but too expensive right now :( Western-Themed Super Improvers Wall (Whole Brain Teaching) They used CTP's Western Hats 6" Designer Cut-Outs! Great classroom idea! Second Grade Rodeo | 31 Incredible Bulletin Boards For Back To School
Aren't these so cute!  I cannot wait to get going with this and make this happen!

So, as I said I have to move rooms, and I've done a little to get things going this past week, but I also started with my lists :(  YIKES I seem to be a Queen of Lists around this time of year.  This is only a small amount.  
I am just happy my district is putting on a District Pinterest Party this coming month.  Maybe I can get all of my centers and stuff ready to go, so that will be one last thing that I have to worry about when I have to move classrooms.

My new guilty pleasure!  I do love summer television (most of the times) especially when I get something like this.  I love these types of shows.  Something both my husband and myself can really get into together!

How was your week?


  1. I'm going to have to check out that show.. Chris and I rarely agree on what to watch.

    1. I love BBC! - I am also looking forward to the Outlander series though!

  2. I love your classroom theme - so unique and fun! I’m gearing up for a big giveaway on my blog on August 11 - come stop by so you don’t miss it!!
    Beyond The Gradebook

    1. That sounds like so much fun! - I love Giveaways, however I think if I was the only one to enter there would still be some glitch in the system and I wouldn't win :) I love the thrill of entering though, so I will definitely stop by on the 11th! Thanks for leaving a comment!

  3. Thanks for stopping by. Your western pins are so cute! I am now following you on Pinterest!
