Sunday Scoop

Up early to get some work done but I'm taking a little blogging break. I'm excited to finally have something to link up with Teaching Trio's Sunday Scoop linky! I've been actively reading everyone else's linky posts but I haven't had much to say to get in on the action myself!

So here's my Sunday Scoop:

So, Sunday's are my get down to business days usually. Today, I need to lock myself away to finish grading the last of my essays. I also need to send home my minutes update for (check my previous post here) since we had a party on Friday and didn't get to see all my students.

I just can't brag enough about Learn2Earn. This website has been such a blessing for me and my students. Seventeen more responses awaited me this morning; I graded 48 on Friday. Couldn't be more proud of this student's reading success as I logged in this morning! Using text evidence to explain his answer and all... #fillsmyteacherheart

We also just got sent a long list of emails about meetings for OTES prep, IEP meetings, RTI meetings, and staff meetings for the remainder of 2014. I brought my planner home to write them all down. I just can't remember all these places and times without writing it all down and putting it in my digital calendar as well!

I'm hoping to spend maybe an hour or two grading or enjoying break to finish Mad Men Season 2. I got hooked yesterday and marathoned through nearly all of Season 2. Just three more episodes to finish up. What was life like before Netflix?? I also want to get all the dishes put away and cleaned up. We went to a friend's house for a game night yesterday so all left over dishes are still in the sink from prepping party foods and yesterday's misc. dishes. Thank goodness for a reliable dishwasher!

Last, I'm happy to write sub plans this week! I'm taking my first personal day of the year. I don't always take my personal days but this year, I'm taking some time to get my hair cut, go Christmas shopping and just get my life organized. I have all sorts of appointments I need to book and places I need to call and there just never seems to be enough time in the school day... Hopefully, it'll be a fun day to get recharged and get some things done before the holiday craziness starts up!

How are you spending your Sunday?
