How Mrs. Coop got her groove back!

So after ten days away from school recovering from my gallbladder surgery I head
Back to my class tomorrow....I am so excited to see there smiling faces and get
going on the great projects we have a brewing....

My day started off with breakfast and planning at a favorite spot....Denica's....with 
my super fabulous friend and teaching pal....we started this third grade road together
this year....me a first timer to third and she also a first timer to third but also coming 
back to teach full time after many years staying at home with her boys.  She is always
there with an idea, inspiration, encouragement, and a shoulder to cry on if needed.

Here is a picture of our post breakfast and big planning time:


We are starting a unit from Lesson Plan SOS on communities....we planned
out some great read alouds to help our students expect to connect between
three different texts....Roxaboxen, Weslandia, and The Chalkbox Kid.  

We also shared some laughs about this hysterical book I learned about while
Blogstalking last week during recovery....if you haven't read this book....
YOU MUST...it is so laugh out loud funny....



Oh yeah....that cookie....yummy! And a super fun card from my pal!

We headed over to our classrooms to gather up and organize after a week of
having a sub....so glad I went in...this will make Monday morning so much
smoother....and so will packing my lunch for the week as well as the kids for
tomorrow.....woohoo!



Now I sit on the couch checking through the animal reports they worked on 
last week....I plan to put a post it on each with notes to encourage them while I watch
the academy awards...



I am also super excited that this brand new book was in my school mailbox...



So that sums up my awesome planning day....I even had time to paint my nails...cheers!

  3. Third grade is the best! A coteacher gave me that book my first year and it's just as good the second and third time through.
