Sunday Scoop 2/8/15

It is Sunday so that means it is time for another link-up with Teaching Trio and the Sunday Scoop.  

Have to Do:
There are so many lonely socks in our drawers, on the dresser, in the laundry room...etc. The time has come to gather all of those lonely socks and see if I can find a match for them. This week will entail a ton of reading for grad courses. I just have to push through it. I also have to get the car washed. It is out of control and needs to be cleaned. 

Hope to Do:
I have been working on getting my promotional items ready for two upcoming conferences. I hope to send them out by midweek....fingers crossed! Also, I want to look for a new rug to go in my sunroom. I want something bright and cheerful. 

Happy to Do: 
The sun is finally shining...two days in a row now. I want to get outside with my family and enjoy it. It is still not quite warm here yet, but the sunshine has definitely brightened my spirits. 

I went to a paint party on Saturday morning. It was a lot of fun, however, I learned that my creativity lies in other areas besides art/paint. :) This is my finished product. (I am sorry about the shadow in the pic.) The hubby hung it on the wall walking up our garage steps.

I hope each and everyone of you have a marvelous week!

February Currently

I cannot believe February is already here! I always love the first of each month, so I can link up with Oh Boy Fourth Grade for the monthly Currently!

Listening: It is Super Bowl Sunday, so of course the television is on ESPN. The hubby cannot miss one thing about football. I have also been googling Marshawn Lynch interviews and videos. He is quite entertaining in my opinion! 

Loving: The weather is beautiful outside today...think I might go for a run in a little while. 

Thinking: I have a very busy week ahead. We have meetings, PTO, students dressing up like their favorite book characters, homework, and the other usual weekly events. I need to get everything organized today for the week. 

Wanting: I think it is because the weather is so nice, but I want to go shopping with the gals for some new spring clothes. I think we might should even make it a weekend adventure. 

Needing: I woke up this morning with a terrible headache... took some medicine and went back to sleep. When I wok up again, the head was still throbbing. I think some more medicine and outside therapy will help it. 

Pageant Title: "Queen of Yoga Pants", you won't see me sporting around town in them; however, they are my go-to every second I am at home. 

Hehe...true story!

Since it is February, I want to share with you some resources to make your planning easier. 

This February Writing Bundle is a great addition to the month. It contains 20 journal prompts, plus three essay writing prompts. The essay prompts come complete with the writing topic, organizing page, drafting pages, and scoring rubric. You can choose the mode of writing you are working on in class and use that prompt. The students love the topics, and it is all nicely organized for you to incorporate into your plans.
