Sunday Scoop: Reading, Shopping & Mowing!

Using this Sunday to get caught up with lots of various things around the house! Even though I'm "on vacation" I still feel like I'm keeping busy and not with much of the household "stuff." I've been working on back to school shopping for classroom supplies, organizing my office space, and making necessary BTS appointments.

So, here's what I'm tackling today... 

If you haven't checked out my post about Library Building on a Budget, here's a hint... Print off a Half Price Books 50% off coupon and go by your classroom a more "expensive" book! I feel like adding to my classroom library is definitely a "have-to-do" and compared to the other two items, it'll probably be priority numero uno!

I'm really enjoying going back through Reading in the Wild! There were so many great ideas that I forgot about {gasp!} or just failed to implement the way I wanted. This book is my go to reading book for next year! I'm striving for full out wild readers.

I found this great idea I'd highlighted.... 
So I started getting some headers made....
I'm going to mount the headers about $1 clear wipe-off pockets from Target. Once books come out, I can staple them to my Reading Arena board {aka} my 40 Book Challenge display. 

One thing I'm always happy to do! Go shopping - of course! I really need some new sandals, new Sperrys, and a few cute dresses. I have a few gift cards I've been saving just for some back to school shopping! Everyone needs a few new outfits, right?

Don't forget to link up with the girls over at Teaching Trio to share your Sunday Scoop

Happy Sunday, 


  1. Oh, I LOVE the currently reading idea! What a great way for students to advertise books to other students. And I love Half Price Books. They have so many awesome things there. Have fun shopping!

  2. The teachers at our school did Currently Reading cards outside our classrooms! I love the idea for kids too. Our grass needs a mowing as well, but our mower broke and is still being fixed...oh well, I hope the city doesn't mind.

  3. I read the Book Whisperer and I've been to one of Donalyn Miller's workshops. I've been wondering about Reading in the Wild, I may have to read that one.

  4. I like the Currently Reading idea. I've been building my classroom library, too. Since this is my 18th year, I can relax a bit and have fun with it since I've gathered so much. Goodwill and Salvation Army are favorite places. Tomorrow, my friend and I are going to a used bookstore that is enormous.. I'm sure to find lots of good stuff there! Happy back-to-school shopping!
    Laughter and Consistency

  5. My students would have loved "currently reading" and "just finished"! Awesome idea & easy to implement!

  6. Back to school shopping is so much fun!! I hope you have a great time! Don't spend to much time on laundry:)

  7. I did the "Currently Reading" sign on my door last year, but I LOVE the idea of have student signs on their lockers! I may have to steal this idea from you... :)
