August Currently & Assess Me = Two For One Link-Ups!

It's the weekend!  I love the summer, and I love vacation!  Life is good!  I'm linking up with Farley for:

This week we changed from the dog days of summer to the perfect days of summer.  On Tuesday, we had a tornado alert!  After that we got cool, dry air.  Today was in the 70's!

I've been loving summer.  In the morning I clean and organize, and in the afternoon, I go in my pool and read.  I enjoy every day because this time of year flies by too fast.

Last week I finished my Reading class.  My goal is to become better at teaching reading.  Reading scores in our country have remained the same since the end of World War II.  There's a HUGE need for more professional development in reading, but there's usually not enough money in the budget.  Of course, so many of us pay for our own classes....

In addition, I'm linking up with Rachel from The Tatooed Teacher for the 2nd week of:

I LOVE wearing skirts - they're so comfortable and cozy when you wear them with tights.  I do have so many earrings and necklaces, but if I had to choose, I would just wear earrings.  I chose silver because I like platinum - I wear my grandmother's antique engagement ring, and that's platinum.  Platinum was less expensive in the 1920's when the ring was made.

I also wake up early every day; I love being at my house; and I take a shower at night.  I'm always excited to see trains - I just am fascinated by them, especially freight trains. 

Have a terrific week!


  1. I would love to get my house totally clean! It was a summer project to get my garage cleaned, and's now a Fall Break project!

  2. I love that you want to improve your reading instruction! Have you read the book "The Book Whisperer" by Donalyn Miller? It completely changed how I teach reading and my students' reading achievement has skyrocketed! Good luck to you!
