A Peek At My Week

I'm linking up again this week with Jennifer over at Mrs. Laffin's Laughings for her A Peek at my Week Linky Party!

Here go's...

FAMILY: This week I will be picking up one of my 9 year old's friends and taking them both to the pool for the day. We go almost every day as a family, when the weather's nice, but I'm going to take my younger two to the babysitter and just take my oldest. That way I can go down the water slide and off the diving boards too. :)  Next week if also my sister-in-law's bday, so I'm going to keep my niece overnight so she can go to Chicago for a night out with her boyfriend. We'll have a full day and night of cousin fun!

SCHOOL: I began diving into the 7th grade curriculum (new grade level for me next year), and still have a lot to do.  The teacher that I'll be sharing the 7th grade classes with is very organized, so I'm really excited about that. I'm transitioning a lot of what she's used into an Interactive notebook, so I've got a lot of work to do! My hope is to be through the first unit by the end of the week.

WHOLE BRAIN TEACHING: I've got a free Skype sessions planned with some amazing schools this week, and am really excited to provide a free, hour-long Introduction to WBT Skype. This week I'll be chatting with teachers in Kansas and iowa. If you'd like to set up a free Skype for you and some of your colleagues, please complete this form.  I'm also going to be working on a new blog post for the first week of school. I already have one for the first day, so I'll be extending that out into the first week. This shows how to introduce the WBT strategies into an upper grade classroom.

I hope you all have a great week!


  1. I am the oldest child too and really loved when my mom would do something special just with me. I hope you and your oldest have a great time at the pool! I see that you live in northern IL. Where about? I grew up in Mundelein, owned our first home in Gurnee and now live just over the border in WI.

    Thanks for linking up again this week!

  2. Jennifer, I'm just outside of Rockford! I've been to both Mundelein and Gurnee. You're not too far from me :) Thanks for your comment on my page, I really like your Linky motivated me on Sunday to make a plan for the week!
