Back to your regularly scheduled programming...

So today is the first official day of summer vacation!!! It felt so good ignoring my alarm clock at 4am this morning.  Plus its Friday and I have had a life-long love affair with Fridays so I really couldn't be any happier!!!!

I have a LONG laundry list of things I need want to do this summer.  First on the list is organizing my thematic unit materials.  Right now my materials are either in housed in plastic bins or storage crates.  This system is ok but I think I can tweak it to make it work better for my needs.  Yesterday, I purchased some book bins from Target. 

They are similar in shape and size to this set from Lakeshore Learning.  The bins from Target don't come with folders or a storage rack but I think they will work for me. 

I have a just a few days before the extended school year starts.  Rest and relaxation from now till then!

Talk to you guys soon...


  1. yikes, you wake up at 4am?! In case you have some spare time you may want to look into creating your own magazine/book holders. I'm def. looking to make some of these before the school year begins: http://www.thesitsgirls.com/diy/diy-home-decor/

    Love your blog by the way! :)

  2. Hi there..

    Sadly, yes 4am wake ups are a part of my daily routine. I try to get at least 30 mins of cardio in first thing in the AM then I have about a 45 min commute from lower Westchester NY to CT. Then I like to get to school at least a hour before the students arrive. Crazy I know..

    Thanks for the link and thx fr stopping by..l
