I am linking up with my friend Lorraine at Fabulous 4th Grade Froggies to help get myself organized for back-to-school.  Unlike Lorraine, who has 4 weeks, I have TWO WEEKS to get my classroom ready.  I officially report back to work on August 2!  I am totally freaking out over how much work I have to do in the next couple of weeks!  I started my list but had to stop because it was getting
 toooooo loooooong!
Here's what I have so far (in no particular order.)

Guilty Pleasures

Blog Title
I am also linking up with Ashley from The Resource Room Teacher to confess my guilty pleasures.

Number one has to be ICE COLD anything!  I love my ice cold beverages!
My guilty pleasure is this ice maker that I have in my classroom.

My other  (BIGGER) guilty pleasure is BOOKS!  You don't even want to see my Amazon bill!

I just love books! Picture books, novels, chapter books, professional books, you name it!
Here are just a few of the new book I have bought this summer...
(and these are just a few!)

So, what are YOUR guilty pleasures?


  1. Thanks for linking up to my linky party my friend! You have quite a list. I am glad to see you are accomplishing things though. You are way better then me!
