Sunday Smorgasbord

Happy Sunday! Can you believe that July is tomorrow?! I am linking up with Michelle from one of my FAVORITE blogs, Fabulous in First.
This week I enjoyed lunch with my fabulous team! I am so thankful everyday for the people I get to call teammates. I have been blessed throughout my entire career with great teams. It was so nice to sit down and chat and relax without having to discuss meeting, scores, or standards.

I have been reading away. As I mentioned in the first post, moving to third grade introduced me to a new world of children's literature. Throughout my career in first, I would collect picture books, and we still use many in third. Now my collection of chapter books is quickly growing. I brought home a Scholastic Box filled with books I wanted to read this summer. Well, I have read two...I need to get moving. This was the week I decided I better dive into the box. I began with the first anchor text of our new Language Arts series.
I can't wait to get my hands on the new language arts series. I enjoyed this text of short stories.

I also read The Lemonade War, by Jaqueline Davies. I just discovered that this is a series, so I am going to have to check out the others.
I loved this book! It was quite interesting as you read saw the events through the eyes of the brother and the sister. This book will be used this year.

 I have also discovered a couple of cool photo apps.
A Beautiful Mess allows you to add texts and doodles to your photos. LOVE!

I also just downloaded Pip Camera. It allows you to creatively frame your images. Can't wait to try it out!

I found my next "must have" classroom item. How COOL is this?!

Finally, I'm looking forward to vacation!
