Five for Friday!

Professional Development: I am noticing that the more I attend district trainings the more I am starting to enjoy them! This week I completed a training for small reading groups and left with some great information! I found out about the amazing, Jan Richardson, and all of the fabulous resources that she has to offer. I purchased her book on Amazon and I am excited to try out some of her techniques in my classroom :)

Plum Paper Planner: I am sooooooo excited that I got my planner this week! Isn't it GORGEOUS?! I'm so in love! I going to be using it to organize my daily activities; Work, blogging, TPT :) I need to map it all out to prevent my brain from overloading! I'm thinking about purchasing another one in a few months to use as my planbook. I'm not sure yet...

New Classroom Resource: This week I got an amazing book for my classroom! My school's reading coach purchase a copy for each teacher on my team. The Continuum of Literacy Learning is a resource that can be used to help plan reading and language arts curriculum. It is also useful for assisting teachers with setting goals for students. My district has been backing this book and for good reason. I am oh so grateful to have a copy of my own :)

Trader Joes: Anyone who knows me, knows I have a serious obsession with Trader Joes. Today I stopped at my local store and found some GYRO MEAT! I love buying salads from Gyroville so I decided to get all the necessary ingredients to make it at home. I did and it was DELICIOUS! Yummm!

It's Friday: Need I say more?
