Sunday Scoop

I am linking up today with The Teaching Trio for the first time!  I enjoy reading this link up and am excited to join in the fun. 

3 things I have to do...
     1. Last week I had my students spell all the sight words from the Dolch list so I can find out what ones to use for spelling this week.  We only have 3 days this week so we aren't doing our typical spelling from the book.  I figured they would be good with the words because I know they can all read them.  I was very wrong, I have 2 students with a DRA of 40 and they got 5 or 6 of the words wrong, I was shocked.  So this weekend I went out and purchased Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders.  I am making up some cards with the sight words and an example sentence on them.  In order to take the turn in the game they are going to have to correctly spell the word for their partner.  Hopefully this will help them practice the sight words in a fun way! If you have any other suggestions let me know!
     2. I do have school next week, so I need to do lesson plans for this week.  It is a fun week because it is short and I am not planning on doing the typical things at all.
     3. I have to get some lists made and this organized for Thanksgiving! I do love Thanksgiving, but it is a lot of work.

2 things I hope to do...
     1. I want to try to post for the Blog Hoppin' week of Thanks.  Hopefully I can get a chance today to schedule some of those post for this week.  I know once the week starts it will be crazy, so hopefully I can do it today.
     2. Besides Thanksgiving stuff, I would like to get some other areas of my life cleaned up and organized a bit today.  I figure if I can do it today I can relax over the long weekend :)

1 thing I am happy to do...
     1.  I am always happy to read, and to be honest I probably will.  As soon as that football game goes one, I will most likely open a book instead of being productive.

  1. Hi Sara!
    I'm so excited for Thanksgiving as well. I'm hosting. It's a lot of work but oh, the deliciousness of it all is so worth it! Great idea for the sight words. Have you ever had your kids play KABOOM? I made KABOOM games for the first 400 FRY words. It's super fun game and apparently even the big kids like it. :) Let me know if you want to know more. I'd be happy to explain it to you, make you one, etc... What are you reading? I'm reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed for our first book club meeting on Tuesday. I'm not usually a fan of of nonfiction but this one is good! Happy short week!
    Joya :)
