Double Linky Sort of Day

This has been an interesting day. That story is for another post though. I was debating what to post about today and happened to see not one but TWO fabulous linky parties going on. So, topic problem solved!

The first linky is Sunday Smorgasboard hosted by Michelle at Fabulous in First. I think this linky party was made for me - it's all about randomness. The way Michelle describes herself when setting up a classroom reminds me of myself! You'll have to go read her description. :)

Anyways, I'm going to give you 3 random things from my week. Enjoy!
I have been very busy working on things this week. Some of them I will show off tomorrow during Monday Made It. I am still not able to get up and work on my classroom so my pile of goodies continues to grow at home. One simple thing I did was make dry erase pads from a fleece baby blanket I bought at Dollar Tree. I'm hoping these work well as erasers.

I organized my closet this week. I'm hoping this will make getting dressed easier in the morning. Everything is separated by color and the hangers are turned to help me keep track of what I've already worn.
I've got a great idea for a back to school activity that I'm currently working on. I'll be sharing it soon after I've got it where I want it to be. For now, here's a peek. (A very small peek as this picture won't really tell you anything.)
One linky party down! Now for the next one!!
This linky is brought to us by Latoya at Flying Into First. This one is about getting acquainted. Today's focus is on school year goals.
What are my goals for this year?
I want to get my feet wet in first grade and make sense of a different grade.
I would like to put more thought into what I wear to work. (Seems superficial, I know, but sometimes clothes affect your attitude and how people perceive you.)
I want to see my kiddos succeed.
I would like to improve my data keeping abilities. I've improved on this each year, but I would like to see it improve even more.
The last big goal? Keep up with my blog and add more fun items to my TPT store!
Now, it's your turn! Head on over to both of these wonderful linky parties and see what you can find!
And don't forget - everything's free in my TPT store until the end of July!!


  1. Wow, thank you for your generous offer!

    1. Your welcome! Part of teaching is sharing. :)

  2. Great goals - I could improve my data abilities too! I am very bad about checking over reports from different programs my school uses.


    1. That's where my problems lie as well! We have so many great methods of monitoring students but it's hard to analyze all of the data you get sometimes. Definitely a goal I hope to succeed at. :) Thanks for stopping by!
