Summer ends. School begins.

This picture shows how I feel right now...dizzy with all I am doing and trying to do! My summer is ending and my school year begins in another week.

While I spent a lot of time getting my Language Arts lesson plans put together, I am not through all of the chapters yet. I do have the lessons for the first half of the year though!

Yesterday and today, I acquired several children's story books that I plan to use with my lessons. I then discovered that I do not have copies of some very simple stories. I need Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs and Goldilocks and the Three Bears! I find it funny that with all the books I do have, I do not have these three!
So, tomorrow I will be checking out the Goodwill Store to see if I can find these!

My reading corner for my classroom is all set. I purchased some large colorful pillows to go with the ones from last year,along with an area rug and a colorful floor lamp. Once I paint the new (old) bookcase to match my other one, I will have a neat area to read in.

Today, I also dropped a quilt top off at the quilter's. Chris will do a phenomenal job as she always does!
