Tara, Science in the City: Plans for the summer….personally, lots of time with my own family, we are planning a trip to Washington, DC. Some time scrapbooking, yoga twice a week…..
Professionally…I am planning to get my school webpage set up, get prepared because we are going to be getting chromebooks. I am going to some PD on using inquiry methods with ELL’s.
So looking forward to the summer starting!
Dawn, Algebra Simplified: One week of summer school is on my horizon. Other than that, I am looking forward to intense play sessions with my toddler children. We are already creating our “bucket” list: Catch fireflies, go on a nature walk, have a picnic, fly a kite, play in the sprinkler, and much more. Outdoors here we come!
Clair, High School English on a Shoestring Budget: One the one hand, I try not to plan too much for my summer, lest it end up being too busy or planned. On the other hand, I have a to-do list of many things I’d liked to accomplish. There are some flower beds (can I call them that? They’re being taken over by weeds and hostas) that I want to weed and maintain. There are some resources for my online classes I want to finish up and prepare to post come fall to help students. There is a list of items for TPT that I want to create or update (my favorite of the tasks!). And sleep… I want to catch up on sleep. I’m hoping for a summer that is productive enough to fulfill that need, but also relaxed enough to be a restful time.
Sara, Ms. Fuller’s Teaching Adventures: I am so excited for this summer! Thanks largely in part to my growing success on TPT and a lot of saving I am traveling a lot this summer! First I am going to Monterey Bay, California with a group called Family Nature Summits to hike, whale watch, kayak and more! Then I am going to Kelley’s Island in Lake Erie for a weekend. My big trip of the summer is 10 days in Scotland with a fellow teacher! And then, immediately following my girlfriends and I are celebrating the fact we all turn/turned 30 this year and are spending a weekend at a beach! Other than that this summer is being filled with decorating my new home and teaching an online class! I’m busy- but I like it that way!
What about you, dear readers? What are your plans for the summer months?
