Summer Bucket List

Teri, over at A Cupcake for the Teacher, is having a linky party. I have never joined a linky party before, but this looks like a great one to test myself on.

I love lists and planning, so this one is perfect for me.

1. Create a year-at-a-glance for reading, writing, math, social studies, and science. Incorporate as much agriculture as I can wrap my head around.

2. Read up on and prepare for differentiating math instruction. Perhaps guided math/math work stations.

3. Make one of those cute clip behavior management systems that are all over Pinterest (it's on one of my boards, too--I'm just too lazy to link to it right now).

4. Have a weekend getaway with The Schrock Women on beautiful Lake Michigan.

5. Eat, play games and get to know my sister and her family again (haven't seen them in two years) when we all arrive en masse at my folks house in Indiana.

6. Read novels, just for me, that have absolutely nothing to do with teaching.

7. Go to baseball and basketball games to watch my sons play.

It seems a bit silly to add things that I know I will do (# 4 and 7), but then I know I can for sure mark something off. And I know that as sure as I plan all this, life will happen.

Maybe my kids will want to create a summer bucket list. It might look like this: go to The Twisted Cow (every week), play on iPad and iPod, read a tiny bit, swim once or twice, fight with each other a lot, and never practice piano. 

This summer will be awesome!

Pin It!


  1. I like the idea of putting something on your list that you KNOW you will be able to cross off. Hope you have a good week. Sara

  2. Hi Alyce! I love the ones that involve eating, playing games, and reading! I plan to do all of those at my sister's pool with my nieces! =)
