Is it really JULY, already?

Well friends, it looks as those summer is going by much quicker than I could ever have imagined!! This summer has been so busy, too!

This summer my friends (especially those teacher friends who have so much more free time than usually) and I have started trying to do those things we never seem to make enough time for! So last Monday we had a Pinterest Party! I made wonton tacos! Some of the other awesome food were Cowboy Caviar,  Perfect MnM cookies, Spinach, Feta, and Ricotta Roll Ups, and White Wine Sangria. All of them were amazing and it was a fun way for us to get together to see The Bachelorette!! 

Then just two days later one of our New Orleans teacher friends came up to visit and to play Plucker's Trivia. As a true nerd, I love trivia and it is a great way to hang out with a large group. We didn't win but we did tie one round :) 

And then it was off for a busy Bachelorette Beach Weekend! 

The beach was a little scary at the end of our first day….

But we made up for it with a fun night out in our super fun wigs…

And now it's back to reality! Today has been a "Made It Monday"!!! 

I have finished my "READ" bunting for my reading center. It was super easy to make! I cut out triangles of western scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby, laminated it and attached it to a thin string! I can't wait to see it hanging from my classroom this fall!!

And then came the serious stuff-- I am starting to create my objectives by breaking down the CCSS into measurable chunks that I will teach daily. I finished the 3rd grade Operations in Algebraic Thinking Standards and will post them as a freebie!! Once I finish the other strands I will also add them!! 

Get them here!!

Hope everyone has had a happy and productive Monday! Here's to hoping the rest of the week will be as productive!

Happy Summer, 

Ms. Winter
