Sunday Scoop Link Up

I'm linking up with Teaching Trio for another edition of Sunday Scoop
For weeks, I've had laminated products patiently waiting to be cut, whispering to me on a daily basis, "Don't forget about us!" They've been in my bag trudging back and forth...and back and forth...and back and forth, once again, from school to home.  They never end up seeing the light of day.  

Usually, when I get home, I take off the "Teacher" hat and replace it with the "Mama" hat.  I rarely have time to get school tasks accomplished at home, at least not during my children's waking hours.  Today, however, I'm determined to balance family and work!!  I've got to believe to achieve, right?  "Boo at the Zoo" with my family is approaching later this evening, so I'm telling myself it will be cut and organized before then, especially since it's in my plans to use with the students later this week. 

Okay, I'm off to cut my laminated literacy products!  Wish me luck and grant me lightning speed cutting skills while you're at it.  Those skills can be applied on the pumpkins as well.  ;)

Happy Sunday and have a productive week!

  1. Lots of luck getting that cutting done - you can do it! And think how good you'll feel when it's done!

  2. Did you get your cutting done?! My school does not celebrate Halloween and, as our house in on the school compound, we can't celebrate it at home either :_( I used to make my girls little outfits, decorate the house & take the girls to a farm to carve pumpkins when we lived in the UK... I really miss that time of the year! Have fun though!

    1. I did! Boo at the Zoo was tons of fun. You'll have to click on our Instagram button for a zoo picture. :) I bet the outfits you made your girls were adorable. Maybe one day you'll be able to join in the fun again. Thanks for commenting, Naima! :)

  3. That teacher-to-mom transition is so tough to juggle. It always feels like something's getting shorted, doesn't it? Lucky for you, the laminated pieces keep whispering...lol. Good luck getting it all done!

    1. Boy, is it ever tough. I consider myself a multi-tasker, but sometimes it's just too much. I need to just be a Mama sometimes and not a teacher (even though all the fun activities I plan for my kids are educational). ;) Thanks for stopping by, Beth, and if you're interested, click on our Instagram button for a Boo at the Zoo pic. ;)

    1. Thanks for the support in my cutting endeavors! I was able to conquer the bag of laminated products before hitting Boo at the Zoo with my family. :) Yes, I'd love to find time to read the book, too, but managing to find 2 hours for the movie is challenge enough right now. LOL. Maybe during winter break I'll get to the book! ;) Thanks for stopping by!

    1. It's tricky making time for my TPT store when I have the twins running around the house. :) Yes, I can't wait to see Gone Girl! I didn't make it to the theater THIS weekend, but I'm hopeful for next weekend. Date night, here I come! ;)

  6. Gone Girl is GREAT!! What books have you purchased for leveled reading? I'm an intervention teacher for first grade and the resources we have at our school for students in the reading intervention classes is basically non-existent. I was planning to buy a few books so my students can work on their reading fluency, but I want to buy the best! Any suggestions?

    1. Hi Pili! The reading specialists in my school use the Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention Kits (Orange, Green, Blue, Red and Gold), which are wonderful. However, my principal recently ordered Book Source books for the classroom teachers to use that we store in a leveled book room. We purchased books ranging from Levels A all the way through V. TONS of authentic literature. Both the fictional and informational text sets are amazing. I hope this information helps! :)
