Sunday Scoop (12-21-14)

The Scoop for today...

It was almost difficult for me to think of three things that I HAVE to do today. Isn't that lovely?

Do you know 
Curious Firsties

There are some great ideas and posts over there. The ones that I want to closely read today (again) are: Guided Reading Group Format, and Small Group Instruction. My first graders are gonna ROCK the benchmark assessments come January, and if they don't, then I'm gonna be ready for giving AWESOME instruction so that they can rock those assessments in May. "PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), that's the way, EVERYDAY!" Thanks Colleen at Literacy Loving Gals--not sure where and when she said that, but it was a family motto of hers growing up and I want to make it my motto also.

I started making some ornaments yesterday (I had the kit for 2 years, but it looked "not easy" and I was scared to try), but after helping my 3-year-old nephew make one, I think I can make some today.

What's your Scoop for today??

Thanks goes to Teaching Trio for hosting this party.
Pin It!


  1. I was thinking the same thing when I linked up! How nice is it when the things we HAVE to do are also things we are happy to do?? Have a great week!

  2. love that we have to do nothing with our lesson plans...and that it's monday and I'm *still* in my pajamas! Hope you're enjoying break!

  3. Love how relaxing holidays are :) I do need to go to my classroom at some point and update my displays, but it's nice to choose when to do it!
    Have a great time making ornaments :)
