Proud Moment from Former Students

This week just seemed to drag on. After today, we have 7 1/2 days left with students. It has been raining almost everyday this week. I'm ready for summer and so are the kids. On a brighter note, we received good news this morning about our FCAT scores. Third Grade is the year that students will be retained if they don't pass the reading section.  Well, all of our Third Grade students PASSED!!!! : ) (Insert back flip here!) We are so ecstatic about this accomplishment. I also found out that 3 of my former students got a perfect score on the Reading Section. I had these students for three years. I had them for Kindergarten, First and Second Grade. Since my school is not a "traditional" school, we teach the same students for 3 years in a subject area before they move on to an Intermediate Cluster. All of my other students from that class, also did very well on the test. On top of all this excitement, I am anxiously awaiting the results of the Fourth Graders. I was asked to teach an After school Reading Camp for Below Grade level students in reading. So, I will be waiting on pins and needles until they come out. Fingers crossed that they did just as well.

New Linky to learn All About Hoo? You!

I stumbled across a new linky from Mommy & Me Creations. Each Tuesday she will post new questions. Link up so we can get to know each other better.

Here are this week's questions:

1) What are your plans for the Summer?
Spending time with my little girl and my husband (who also happens to be a teacher), going to Tennessee in June for a vacation, and spending time with friends that I haven't gotten to see lately.
2) What are your favorite Summer activities?
Playing with my little girl and doing crafts.
3) Do you enjoy going outdoors, or are you more of an inside person?
Honestly, it really depends where I am at. I live in southern Florida and the summer is really hot. Sometimes it is unbareable to be outside for more than 30 minutes, so I tend to spend my time inside. When I go up north, I LOVE being outside.
4) Which of the following is your favorite and why. Fishing, Hiking, or Camping.
Hiking, because the scenery is always changing.

Join the Summer Bucket List

Since the countdown to summer has begun for all of us, I am joining the Summer Bucket List Linky Party. 14 more days for me! How about ya'll? These wonderful bloggers started this party: Hadar at Miss Kindergarten, April at A Modern Teacher, and Teri at A Cupcake for the Teacher. Head over to any of their blogs and link up.
Here's my list so far in no particular order. (I'm sure I will add more as the days go by.)

1. Classroom Booksource (Thanks Miss Nelson!) I really need to do this to keep track of all my books. I think I may enlist my Second Graders for help with this as I start to orgnaize my shelves to be packed away.

2. Take a vacation with family to Tennessee. I love it up there. We'll be visiting the Smoky Mountains
 and of course my favorite university.......UT! GO VOLS!

3. Work on my blog

4. Work on making new product for my side business. I started making bows for my daughter and turned it into a side business.

5. Potty Train my daughter! Ahhh!

6. Enjoy watching my little girl in her first dance class.

7. Work on my new classroom theme. I have done in previous years: ocean, rainforest, bears, country....and this year it is Forest/Camping.

8. Create new items for Literacy Stations for next year.

9. Work on Theme Lessons.

My list could go on, but I don't want to be overwhelming. What is on your Summer Bucket List?
