Weekly Summer Link Up - My Goals for the Summer

Hey friends! I'm linking up with Monica from I Heart Grade 3 for a summer linky!
I'm talking summer goals... so here goes!

Goal 1: Create TPT things and things for my classroom

My todo list for things to do is SO long. I have so many classroom decor sets that I need to finish up. It's kind of sad. I've also decided that I want my kiddos word work center and math workshops to pretty much be the same style for the entire year. HUGE task. I also am finishing up a huge task for my whole team. We decided that we wanted to have themed readers for the entire year on different levels with our sight words that we're covering. YAY! I got the task of making all of them. I have two units finished, but that's it.

Goal 2: My sister's wedding
So. My sister decided about 2 months ago that she was going to get married. In August. She also decided that she does not want a wedding planner. Sooooo I've gotten the task of doing a bunch of her stuff. YAY me again.

Goal 3: Vegas
VEGAS BABY! This isn't really a goal, but I'm so excited to be going for the second year in a row. I cannot wait to see so many of my friends that I've never met before. I'm going to I Teach K again (fingers crossed) and then I'm going to the TPT conference. I'm rooming with 3 of my Elementary Entourage peeps Diana, Jessica, and my BOO Melissa who I CANNOT wait to meet.

Goal 4: Update products
Again, I have so many products that I need to update. The first on my todo list is my back to school resource, Make Way for Kindergarteners. EEK! I cringe looking at it and it will be done before school rolls back around.

Goal 5: Finish my clip art/product binder
I own Ashley Schroeder's blogging binder/what do you own bundle. LOVE! I own SO many different clipart packs that I need to have them sorted out. I've owned this for SO long and started on putting all of it together a while back. Over Christmas break, I really sat down and started on the clipart portion. I own WAY too much! My goal this summer is to get all of it together and done. My goal is to print off all of the full pages and add them to the binder. As I buy clipart/products, I'll add those in and print the pages as they fill up.

Goal 6: Beach and Netflix
I am staying at home this summer and not heading up north to hang with my family all summer. This means, I can go to the BEACH as much as I want this summer! I live less than 45 minutes from the beach and this summer I'm claiming it as MINE! I hate tanning, but love the beach. Does that make any sense at all? I want to bring my computer to the beach and create and NETFLIX! One of my teacher friends has gotten me addicted to American Horror Story. I finished the first season in like a week and just started the second season. It is CRAZY. I am such a scaredy cat, but for whatever reason I really like this show. Hopefully, I find some more good shows to netflix.

What do you have planned for the summer?


  1. What a beautiful blog design! Enjoy your summer!

  2. Hello Keri!

    Thank you for participating in my very first linky party!

    I am going to the Vegas conference, too! Are you going to any of the Blogger meet-ups before? Hope to meet you there!



    1. Thanks Monica! This was so much fun! Yes, I plan on going to the one on Wednesday and Friday and I think the dinner from Educents.

  3. I plan to get to the beach this summer, too. We live in Connecticut, so it takes me about 45 minutes to get there. We watched Once Upon a Time on Netflix. You might like that one! It sounds like you'll be really busy creating this summer. I want to create three sets of 4th grade sub plans this summer and update my 1st and 2nd grade sets. Those are my main TPT goals. Have a great week!
    Laughter and Consistency

    1. Lucky you being close to the beach! I hope I get finished with tons of things as well! Have a great summer.

  4. You have such a cute blog! You had me at beach and Netflix! Can't wait to hear all about Vegas!

    1. Thanks Carrie! You should be coming to Vegas too if you're not already!

  5. You have such a cute blog! You had me at beach and Netflix! Can't wait to hear all about Vegas!
