First Sunday Scoop of a New Year!

I have one more day of Christmas break 
- and I am going to enjoy it!

Well, school starts again tomorrow, and I am almost ready.  Not quite, but almost.  I did spend some time in my classroom on Friday, but I need at least another hour in there today to be fully prepared.  {My bulletin boards are empty!}

I started reading The Giver and the three following books yesterday.  I have read The Giver before, but I wanted to reread it before I read the next three.  I forgot what a great book it is.  They are short books though so I am hoping to finish all of them today.

Also, my sister and her family have been here for all of Christmas break.  I am loving playing with my nieces and nephews! 

Feel free to link up your plans for today with The Teaching Trio!


  1. I give you credit for going in to your classroom! I passed on the idea because I just can't bear to admit that I have to go back TOMORROW! So I'll be on a mad dash to the copier and you'll start your day in far less panic…lol!

    I love that you do thank you notes too! My grandmother always told me how important they are and now I am a stickler for doing them!

    Have a great first week back!

  2. I'm almost done with updating my boards too, but I'm getting one new board in my classroom + an outdoors display board which will need doing soon! Starting a new TpT product is on my to-do list too, so good luck to both of us!

  3. The Giver is of those books that stick with you long after you finish the last page. I too have the other books of the series but haven't even tried to read them. You've inspired me to start :) Enjoy your last day of break...
