Happy Wednesday everyone!!  I am sooooo sad that July already seems to be flying by!!!!  I guess that is what happens on summer vacation!!!

Today, I am all in for a TRIPLE linky!!!  As you know I am on vacation right now in Michigan, so I have been blog stalking here and there, and found a new linky to link up with today.  
First, I am linking up with Jess at I Heart Recess for some back to school goal setting.

With just starting to teach middle school, my goals are pretty short and sweet. :)  I just really want to have a successful first year, have my students ENJOY what they are learning and HOW they are learning it, and also to try new things and stay ORGANIZED!!!!!
Personally, I have only just started blogging and TPT-ing so I would love to be consistent with that as well, sharing ideas and things that I am doing in my classroom. :)  I also need to get back on the workout train!!  YIKES.  Especially after being home with family for a month...a month of home cooking does that to a person. :)

Next, I am linking up with The Teaching Tribune for their Worksheet Wednesday.  
This is a FREE worksheet I plan to use with my 6th graders on the first day of school.  I want to be able to relate to them, so I would love to get to know them better, so this little questionnaire should do the trick! :)  PLUS--it's free!! :)  Just click below to get it!

Third, I am linking up with Christina at Second Grade Sugar and Spice for her Wordless Wednesday.
So, here is my picture...
I'm still at my parents house in Northern Michigan, so it's another vacation picture.  We wanted to stay by the fire longer, but the mosquitoes were HORRIBLE!!!!  

Now...onto some other things. :)

If you're not already a FACEBOOK follower, please stop by and see me.  Today I will be having a FLASH FREEBIE of my customary measurement conversion task cards:
I used these in my classroom this year as a fun test-prep activity, but you could use them ANYTIME.  They are ALL word problems (24) and convert between customary units of length, weight, time, and capacity.  I will be putting them in my TPT store today for FREE for 1 hour and I will announce it ahead of time on my Facebook page.  If you get it for free, all I ask is that you please leave some feedback love. Thank you, and I hope that you don't miss out!

Second,  it's summer, and that means it's time for a TPT Store SALE!

ENJOY, and Happy Wednesday!!!!

  1. Thanks for linking up! My tip for keeping up with blogging and TpT is to set a specific time each day or week to work on them. Good luck at your new school and new grade! (Where in NC are you located?)
