Sunday Scoop

Hello friends!

I'm linking up with the Teaching Trio to share a bit about the coming week.

This week in ESL, we'll be working on finding textual evidence, studying the work of MLK, Jr., and learning about seasons, clothing, and weather.  Here are the resources we'll be using:

We'll be working on a Martin Luther King diary, told from the perspective of his son.  This is one of my favorites!  It's historical fiction, biography, and non-fiction all rolled into one. I just added an audio file for your listening learners- click the pic to check it out. 

P.S. It's on sale until tomorrow!

P.P.S I'm giving one away on my facebook page- come say hi!

My firsties are learning about seasons and weather.  We'll be using one of my best sellers, Seasons, Clothing, and Weather (Oh My!) over the next two weeks.  Click the pic to check out a freebie from the pack!

Now on to the Sunday Scoop!


My dog likes to dig, then roll in her hole.  She needs a bath desperately. 

We have off for MLK day and President's day in February- time to schedule those routine dentist, physicals, etc.  Not my favorite thing to do!

Here's how I menu plan: I look at the coupons while pushing the cart through the front door of ShopRite.  I am trying to get better at planning ahead.  Tell me you do that too?


I am the Maid of Honor for my friend's August wedding.  I'm finding that coordinating bridesmaid schedules is like shepherding rowdy first graders.  Enough said!

One of my best blogging friends is attending a workshop at my school on Friday- that's the perfect excuse to go to happy hour after work!


Sinus and ear infection 1, Maria, 0.  I was sick from the time we got home from our cruise (Sunday night) until Saturday morning.  I spent three days at home on the couch and I'm ready to get back into the swing of things.  

I'll be back with some classroom updates soon.  Have a great week!


  1. Hope you are feeling 100% better soon! Ear infections suck the life out of you!

    Your MLK Diary activity sure seems to pack a punch! I can see why it's a favorite.

    Thanks for the reminder about making drs. appointments. I need to make one for my son.

    Have a great (healthy!) week!


  2. That is so much fun that a blogger friend will be at your school! Happy hour sounds like a great idea :)


Thanks for the comment! I really appreciate it.
