Sweet Summer

Sweet Summer, oh how I love you!  Let me count the ways:

1.  No alarm clock needed
2.  Bathroom privileges....all teachers know what I mean :)
3.  Movie matinees
4.  Lunch dates
5.  Big Brother, Food Network Star, and Rookie Blue
6.  Pajamas or comfy clothes ALL.DAY!
7.  Watching Periscopes from teachers that I adore..... @elementaryshenanigans
8.  Zero learning targets or criteria of success displayed, needed, or thought about
9.  Traveling
10.  Seeing my momma and daddy (I live in WA and they live in MS :(  )
11.  Watermelon, plums, cherries, and peaches
12.  Crafting
13.  Netflix marathons
14.  Reading for pleasure
15.  Lesson plans are not needed

As much as I love the sweet little ones that I teach, I can honestly say that summer break makes me a better teacher.  I tend to invest most of "ME" during the school year.  I have trouble with balance.

I am SO THANKFUL for summertime!

  1. Hi ,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is: 



    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
