It's June, It's June! {jumping up and down}

Summer has started. School has ended. Teachers and students need to rejuvenate. That said we are all still working.  Students, hopefully, are still reading something (books, cereal boxes, road signs, etc.) and teachers are truly resting but in the back of their minds they are planning. Next year always looms ahead like a beacon. What can I do differently? How can I implement that into my classroom next year?

We all do it.  Well I don't know that for sure; I just know that I think that way and I've heard tell from other teacher friends that they plan that way as well. As a librarian I have the whole upkeep of the library to take care of and summer is a major cleanser for me. I'm working on inventory and have just started nonfiction. I finished fiction chapter books yesterday. They are all in the right order now, inventoried and reorganized. I'm taking out old copies, weeding, as I move through the shelves. It's thrilling stuff.

I've also started working out with someone named Jillian Michaels who has kind of a fast mouth and likes to push it. Working out is something that gets pushed to the back burner during school and my mission is to get some strength back and to combat all the lounge treats I ate of the year.

I have lots of other plans for the summer and the first thing up on my travel agenda is coming up this week. We are heading to the Blue Ox festival in Eau Claire, WI with some friends. Camping, music, festival food, fun cocktails, sun dresses, and possibly some rain...all sounds like the perfect way to begin summer.

I've been lucky to have a few moments to spend in my parachute hammock reading. I'm in the middle of three great books; The Doctor's Wife by Elizabeth BrundageLeft Neglected by Lisa Genova, and The Marvels by Brian Selznick.
What are you reading?

Happy June!
