July Goals

I came across this link up hosted by Jess over at I {Heart} Recess and just knew I had to join in.  I firmly believe in setting goals with my students and yearly goals for myself as well.  However, I tend to be a little loosey-goosey with those long term goals so thought this monthly set might fair better (especially since they are actually written down and others can see them LOL)  It's all about accountability right?

So here are my July goals:

Personal- I recently tore apart my upstairs bathroom  and stairwell to do a little remodel.  I have finished up painting in the bath, now need to make a curtain (I can't sew to save my life!) and do some texturing/painting in the stairwell.

Family- we have many quick places of interest I want to take the kids to before it is time for school.  They are growing up so fast and busy with their own interests, it is hard to find time to squeeze in when we can all just hang out together.

Health- My summer goal is to loose 15 pounds.  I did well this Spring-I gave up soda for Lent, but completely reverted to old habits once Easter was over.  Trying to drink more water or green tea instead of my favorite Dr. Pepper is something I have to really get back to.

School- Seems I can't get away from thinking/planning for next year.  We will be focusing on ELA Common Core this year, so I want to get through my materials and get things ready to go.

Blog/TPT-  I have actually just started blogging myself.  I've been doing a lot of blog stalking and can't wait to connect with other teachers out there. My TPT store is pretty bare, so hoping I can create/tweak some of my materials to get them ready for the store.

Outside the box: My Pinterest boards are MESSY.  I need to go through those and get it reorganized and put those great pins to use.

                                                               Until next time....


  1. I just discovered your blog through the goals linky and I am so happy to be your newest follower! This year will be my first year teaching 4th grade. I have been a 3rd grade teacher for 6 years. I am looking forward to reading your posts! :o)


  2. You have been so busy! A getaway with the kiddos is a great idea! You are right that they grow up so quickly....both of mine will be in high school this fall. Eeekk!!

  3. I was just thinking about how I needed to clean up my Pinterest boards too. Is it a teacher thing to want more categories?!? LOL. Good luck kicking the Dr. Pepper... I fell victim to that last summer too. Love DP! However, it is true... you eventually stop craving it. Have you tried DP 10? I drink that when I really need a fix. :)
