Are you a planner? I am a planner. I plan
everything from parties to lessons. I think I was born to be a teacher because
of my planning. Now do all my plans always work out? Wellllll no. Not always. But
that’s ok. I just keep on planning. So since this is the first of a new month
(the last full one of summer! Yikes!) I thought I’d share a few of my July
plans with you.
June is always my
month of rest. I try not to do anything too schoolish (I said try). Then in July
I dive in, and the first few weeks of August I back off again for a breather before
school starts. Of course this is always “my plan.” I did say they don’t always
For July I want to
read some new professional books and reread a few of my favorites. I always
like to reread Debbie Miller and Katy Woods Ray. They make me remember why I
teach and I somehow always seem to find something I’ve forgotten or have
missed. I am also looking to find a good math book. I am always wanting to
improve on my math teaching, and haven’t found just the right recipe yet that
works really well for me.
I am also planning
to blog more faithfully. I PLAN to make it a priority. Maybe I’ll blog about me
In June I got a cute
new yellow bike from my mom and kids and I have been riding it at least three
mornings a week, and so I really plan on continuing that throughout July. The
PLAN is to be able to ride it to school on nice mornings…and the days I don’t wear dresses!
I also plan on
revamping a couple of my TpT items. I made
family involvement journals a few
years ago, and I just really think it is time for them to have a facelift and
maybe add to them. I also want to add a couple of new items to my store. I have
a few that I have been planning so we’ll see!
In the middle of July
I am cooking for a large rodeo around here called Calvacade.
It is a ranch
rodeo, concert, and dance. My good friend talked me into cooking lunch for the
people that work the Rodeo. It’s 100 people a day for 4 days…The PLAN is to make it through the week without
collapsing! I have been planning food for a while I hope it goes over well.
Finally I’ve been planning
a weekend getaway for all of us, but that’s not until the end of the month and
I’m not sure it’s going to work out because as all good plans go there have
been a few unexpected things pop up that just may impede our fun…
Those are my PLANS
so far for the month of July. Are you a planner? What are your July plans?
