Summer to Do List Linky Party @ Littlest Learners

  1. Janine says:

    Your Summer Bucket List is going to make many of us very happy (hoping you will share some of your creativity):)

  2. Kristen says:

    lol Janine, of course! I need to edit and say that, I forgot! 🙂

  3. Anonymous says:

    Wow!! I can only hope that I can be 1/3 as productive! I am also starting my summer to do list and trying to figure out how to organize my new classroom next year. I have been co-teaching and I now get to be on my own– what to do, what to do… Part of my summer to do list is on my blog and I am sure I will add to it as I go.
    I look forward to seeing how you progress on this project! Thank you

  4. Kristen says:

    Thanks, Beth. I'm not sure I'll get it all done, but in an ideal world…

    I'm off to check out your list 🙂

  5. Rachelle says:

    I particularly like #10! 🙂

  6. Jill says:

    Your leveled library part inspired me!! Thanks for the nice comment and for being one of my 12 followers. 🙂

    Magnificent Multiagers!

  7. Jenn Bates says:

    Looks like a list that will keep you pretty busy! I hope the blogs keep going this summer. I know I will still have school on the brain.

  8. Donut Diva says:

    to me looks like you are a million times more organized than I am. But I can't wait to see what else you do and hoping your will share.
    I plan to organize my centers and supplies again this year. It seems like every year I have to try something different to see if it works better.

  9. Chrissy says:

    I am also excited to see the things you create for your goals!

    I want to be added to your #10! 🙂


  10. Angela says:

    Terrific ideas! My list is very similar as far as classroom items go. I am curious though…I've never covered my tables with contact paper! Does it stay neat all year? What a fabulous idea to complete the color them in a room! By the way, thank you for tutorial on how to add a direct link to your comments…it works! I've been puzzled by this for so long! 🙂
    Just Love Teaching!

  11. Kristen says:

    Hey Angela, the contact paper does last nicely IF I explain and model proper care of the desks! I use electrical tape around the edges to hold it down, and that's the part they tend to pick at, so we go over this at the beginning of the year.

    It really does change the whole room when they are covered (because otherwise my desks are old, brown, and chipped!).

    Your direct link looks perfect!

  12. Sarah says:

    I'll be organizing my new classroom and re-organizing my classroom library this summer too. I'm really interested in hearing about #5 since I'm moving to 2nd next year. Our district uses Everyday Math too. Thanks for sharing, in advance.

  13. Ms.M says:

    You will be VERY busy this summer. I just finished with the kids and can't seem to get my brain to stop long enough to figure out what I have to plan to do. :0

  14. Miss W says:

    Wow, you are going to be busy! I love the idea of covering desks with contact paper, I wonder if that would work with my trapezoid tables?

    Miss W Teaches

  15. Kristen says:

    Hey Miss W! I covered my trapezoid table. I just covered it with 3 pieces, going across the shorter width of the table, not the long way (hopefully that makes sense!)

  16. Brenda says:

    Hey, Kristen! Let me know when you're ready to design some blogs! I want you to design mine!

  17. I am in LOVE with your room and the things you posted. I will be using Everyday Math this year and would love to hear about what you come up with as I also love calendar math. I am a new follower and look forward to reading more of your blog!

  18. Kristen,
    I thought I would share an idea for #8. I only have a pinterest link because I pinned it from someone else and couldn't find the original.

    I just recently put them up in my classroom and I've loved having my learning objectives front and center for both me and my students. It was great to have them there to reference and it held me accountable to make sure that the activity/lesson I am planning, connects to my objectives. I teach grade 5 so I didn't alter the language a lot but I would love to put more time into that over the summer for next year.
