Thank goodness I can join up in Doodle Bugs 5 for Friday! It helps me think back about what I actually did this week... otherwise, summer ends up into this huge blur.
Monsters UniversityThe family got up early and went to watch the first showing today at 9:30am. I was thinking that I would be the only crazy person to see it that early - WRONG! The theatre was practically full and I have to say that we all enjoyed the movie. It probably was a tad long - I heard restless kids about 20 minutes from the end. Overall - my son really liked the Scare Challenge and was happy!
Scholastic Warehouse Sale
I headed out to the sale on Tuesday. It was really great because it wasn't very crowded and I was able to leisurely look through the piles of books and pick out what I needed. I probably spent a little too much money for my taste, I try to stay under $50, but I didn't. Oops! Sorry to my husband!
Common Core Posters
I made a set of Common Core Posters this week. For 7th grade and 8th grade too, since it was requested on TpT! They are cute, but I want to make some I can statement pages to go with them as well.
If you're interested:
Every Thursday my son and I go to our public library, watch the free show put on the library, then return and check out our books for the week. We get out of the house, watch a show... my son randomly picks two picture books that he wants to "read" and then - the highlight for him - we go get our smoothies from Jamba Juice!
The Book Whisperer!
I finally picked up my copy and started skimming for now. It looks great! I can't wait to really read Chapters 1 and 2 and put up a few reviews. If you want to participate - the book study is held over at We Read, We Blog, We Teach!
*My star numbers are available at Ashley Hughes' TpT store. I added in the numbers myself, sorry if they are a little large... I was too lazy to go back and reduce their size. I'll have to do that for next week! :)
