If this posted correctly, I'm currently in Williamsburg, Virginia at the Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Institute.
Technically, I haven't made anything this week other than a huge mess. I did get a few housekeeping things done for my class this year, but that is about it.
1. Word Wall Words - I'm changing grade levels (moving to 4th) so that means new word wall words. I decided to get a jump on things and print them ALL out before school ended. Talk about a daunting task. I went through 3 packs of colored card stock. Each word under a letter is supposed to be on a different color of paper. I have to fudge it because the letter T had 27 words. So, if the color duplicates I'll just add a pattern around it. Anyway, I had to cut all of those bad boys out this week. I figured that while I was sitting in my recliner catching up on Days of Our Lives I could be useful. Can we say painful? I don't even have a picture to show what the pile looks like. The next step will be to organize the words by week.
2. Back to School Packet - I had copies left over at the end of the year on my printer so I used them to get ready for this year. I printed out my back to school letter, Meet the Teacher information, Student Questionnaire, etc. This week I organized it all.
**I would love to be linking up with Fourth Grade Frolics, but since I'm out of town and the link is not up yet, I can't. Will do when I return.
