I woke up early this morning and am trying to be quiet so that my hubby can sleep in. I came out to the living room and finished the book I've been reading, Tick Tock by James Patterson. Then I turned the TV on and one of my favorite movies was on, Grosse Pointe Blank with John Cusack. It is a totally cheesy movie, but I grew up in Grosse Pointe and have only been back once in 20 years. Everyone needs a little slice of home once in awhile. While I was watching I decided to catch up on my blog reading and a ton of people were linking up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade and her August Currently. So here is mine:

My B2S

1. Organized teacher binder: I have never actually had an administrator ask to see my binder during my evaluations, but this year my evaluator is a first year administrator, so I want to be prepared. You never know what they will want to see!

2. Cable ties- I am going to use those metal cubes that used to be popular in college dorm rooms to set up my writing stations for each class, but I want some of the cubes to have shelves in them. To do this I need to get me some cable ties! (I'll post some pics after I set my room up next week)

3. I have a few Dr. Seuss items, but I'm not sure how well that will go over with middle schoolers. Any one have some suggestions?


  1. Found you through Farley's rule of 3. I do a Dr. Seuss theme, but I teach Kdg, so there's no question of how well it will go over with my students :o) The milk crate shelves sound interesting. I can't wait to see how they turn out.

  2. Hi Robyn! Just found you through the August Currently! Maybe you could choose a particular Dr. Suess book to be the main theme and then accent with Dr. Suess decorations, i.e. "Oh, the Places You Can Go!" That would be super cute and their are many colors you could use!

    Glad I found you! I am your newest follower!

  3. Hi!
    I just found you through the August Currently! I am assuming you are refering to Gross Pointe, MI. I am from MI too. I love the idea of Dr. Seuss as a theme!

  4. I just found your through the linky party. I can't imagine teaching middle school and I admire anyone who does it. I am sure there are lots of ideas out there for middle school themes if you decide not to go with Dr. Seuss.
