Well August brings us to Sunday...We always say the last day of school is a HUGE FRIDAY, July is our Saturday and August is our Sunday. Although we still have four weeks before we go back, summer just FLEW by! I have a huge bucket list of things to accomplish that I haven't even started yet.
We are happy to be linking up with Doodle Bugs for their always wonderful Five for Friday post! They even have an adorable new sign:
So I am going to cheat a little bit and take the pictures from our Instagram account.
This one is pretty self explanatory! Chopped a TON of hair of last night. It's the shortest it has ever been and it will take some getting used to, but I think I like it. I got a reversed bob. I dyed the bottom chocolate and had high and low highlights put on top. Pretty fun! My hairdresser has been one of my great friends since college, so I trusted her to do whatever she wanted!
#2. Robyn and I are both trying out the Homework Club this year. If a student doesn't bring in his/her homework (after a warning) they take their number down. At the end of the month the students who still have their numbers up will stay in the room at lunch time, for a special treat. I am going to keep changing the treats so it will always be new. I have two classes, that's why there are two sets. I think this will be a great homework motivator. There are little buckets hung on the wall, but aren't visible in this picture. That's where the students will keep his/her numbers once they come down.
#3. LOVE my new clipboard. I have a few more to do now! I have a class set, but picked up a few extra at the Dollar Tree! Great deal!
#4. I am IN LOVE with my new cursive alphabet from Ladybug's Teacher Files!
#5. We just updated some Character Education posters and added new posters. There are now 13 character traits. Great posters with realistic student expectations! :)
Well that was our week in a nutshell! :)
