I'm linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for August Currently
Listening - the Olympics on t.v.
Loving - seeing my friends at work (we always plan to get together over the summer and never do)
Thinking - of all the things I need to do in my classroom
Wanting - the Sisters to release a Daily 5 math book now so I can figure out what I'm doing
Needing - to get off my couch and get busy
Let me explain my Back to School Must Haves
1. Anything Dr. Seuss - my room is Seuss themed and has been my entire career and I love it but I also love finding new things every summer I search the Target Dollar Spot and the Teacher Store to see what is new. This year I found a site that is going to be damaging to my bank account Seussland.com. Love it!!
2. More desk - I have 23 firsties coming this year I've only ever had 20 in my room!! This might be craziness.
3. Binders for organizing - my goal this year is to be organized. I am so bad at it.
So now it's your turn! Link up and enjoy! Have a great Saturday

  4. Cute blog Michelle! I love the background. I'm a follower!! Have you seen the Dr. Seuss socks at Target? My co-teacher just purchased them for all of us for Dr. Seuss Day. I'm super curious about the 2 Sister's Daily 5 for Math too. I would actually love them to develop one for Writing too.

    Good luck being back!!
