My First Day Back......and Don't Forget - 8 Days of Giveaways!! - Ideas By Jivey: For the Classroom

My First Day Back......and Don't Forget - 8 Days of Giveaways!!

Sigh. Yes, that's correct. I'm back to work already. That's the bad thing about getting out May 24. Just the teachers for this next week though! I'll get my kiddos next Wednesday!
First, I wanted to remind you about what Workshop Wednesday will be for the next two months. I know, that is a super long time, but unfortunately, I start school next week while many do not start until September! It will be quite difficult for you all to share how you start your workshops with your students when you don't yet have students! Sooooo for the months of August AND September, the topic will be "Getting Started With Workshops." This would be where you share about how you get the kids into routines, how you set up small groups, management, and of course, lesson ideas. Because we have Reading, Writing, and Math Workshops, my hope is that you will still take the opportunity to link up for EACH one (only blogging about one subject at a time). I will have different link-ups for each different subject so that it will be better organized over the course of those two months starting next Wednesday. Please link up when you can, as many times as you'd like, posting about one type of workshop at a time! All three subjects will be open to link up to each week so that if you don't teach Math, you could still link up to Reading or Writing! I hope this will work out for everyone's schedule!

And guess what day it is??
Ok yes, it is hump day... (don't you love that commercial??? cracks me up!!)

But it's also the first day of 8 Days of Giveaways! Head on over to my facebook page starting today AND EVERY day for the next 8 days to see what the giveaway is- there is a different giveaway EVERY DAY from 8 of my BBBs!!! Wooo woooo! :o)  (you just said that like the camel, didn't you?)

See you on Facebook!! :o)

Wish me luck today! Hoping I stay awake in all our meetings that we have scheduled.....
