Summer Reading Institute

I had the pleasure of attending a four-day workshop in Bryan this week called the Summer Reading Institute.  I am always eager to attend a quality training.  I just really enjoy professional development.  As teachers we often say we want to instill in our students the desire to be life-long learners.  Well thank you to BISD and all the teachers I had growing up because they did just that.

I learned some great ideas for teaching non-fiction/fiction text pairings so I will be posting about those as they come up throughout they year!

I am almost finished in my classroom.  The hubby and I are headed up there tomorrow for some last minute touches.  I plan on taking my camera so I can post some pictures this weekend.

Hope everyone is enjoying the last few weeks of summer break!  If you have an ocean-theme in your classroom then check out my Under the Sea Classroom Pack on TPT.  Click the picture below to visit my store.

I am still working on student binder packets and a post on my behavior plan!  I haven't forgotten I promise!  A back-to-school unit is also in the works so consider following my blog to stay updated on any new projects!


  1. Love it! It's so cute! You are going to have to share what program you use to make all of your cute stuff!! Love getting to see all your posts. You are doing a great job!


  2. Thanks Ashley! I mostly use graphics from Scrappin' Doodles and fonts from I make everything in powerpoint and then convert to pdf. It's very easy one you get the hang of it but can be quite addicting!
