Summer Bucket List Linky.. Won't You Join Us?

Hi everyone!  Summer is just around the corner, woo!!  Besides swimming, tanning, and overall relaxing, we teachers have a lot of things that we want to accomplish before the new school year begins.... a Summer Bucket List, if you will!  And that's why HadarApril, and I decided to throw a Summer Bucket List Linky!
Summer Bucket List

Whether you want to create something for your classroom, bake something new, or take a trip with your hunny, we want you to share!!  Your list might be short, or it might be long!  Be sure to copy the linky button above and link back to this post if you're going to link up :)

Now keep reading to see what I have planned for this summer!

{1} Pixie Stick birthday balloons!! :)
I want to be prepared for birthdays next year!  I currently scramble around when it's someone's birthday... but next year, I will be ready!!  Besides gathering the normal hats, cards, and stickers, I want to make a class set of these.... beforehand.

{2} I'd like to maybe try out the clip-chart management system:
I just hope I can keep up with all the moving up and down the chart!

{3} I plan on organizing my collection of art supplies at home:
This is an over-the-door supplies organizer, and I'm in love.  My hubby will be too, because my art supplies are currently taking over the basement!!

{4} I want/need to bake these:
cookies 'n cream cupcakes...
...and peanut butter iced chocolate cupcakes.
I mean, do I really need to explain?!   Deliciousness!

Besides the four must do's on the list above, I'm excited to SLEEP {gosh, I love to sleep}, SHOP, and CREATE!!  I'm also going on vacation with my hubs and family!  Now tell me... what's on your summer bucket list??

I love the pixie stick birthday bucket. I give pixie sticks for birthday treats but they aren't cute like this. Now I have something else to add to my bucket list!

I used the clip chart behavior management system this year and it's been great. Every substitute who has been in my room has commented on how great it is too. My kids are motivated by getting bling when they land on outstanding...I'm sure you'll like it too!

I was given one of those cookies and cream cupcakes just this week for teacher appreciation! The ones with peanut butter icing look yummy too!

I want to do the clip system up and down next year too! I currently use one that goes only down - you can see it at my blog when I link up shortly. Maybe you could give me an idea of how to change it to go both ways. My concern is if a student moves up and then breaks a rule, do they get a pass by just moving back to the start??? Sorry, I just can't get my mind wrapped around how it works. :-)

I love your bucket list! The file folder system is pretty cool!
I am all linked up and can't wait to read more bucket lists.

Jill said...

I use the clip chart and I really like it! You do have to keep on top of the moving up and down but even with a week and a half left of school, it still really affects my kids when they have to move their clip regardless of the direction. They like being called out for good choices and moving down typically stops bad choices. :) Good luck!!

I am obsessed with cupcakes lately! My daughter just brought me one home from college from her favorite cupcake place there.
Happy Summer,

I used the behavoir chart this school year with my first grader. It helped me to stay focused on the positive behavoir in the classroom. I will be using it again next year. It is not hard to keep up with the chip moving up and down.

Two bits of advice on the clip chart - first, put it in the part of the room you tend to teach from the most. I always had it by the board so if I was in the midst of something, I could move it easily, or the kids could. Second, I found that by making it hang (I hole-punched my levels, and strung them together using unfolded paperclips), it makes it easy to move the clips. A teacher I long-term subbed for had it stapled to the wall and it was much harder to manuever the clips. Good luck!

What a great idea for a linky party! I am writing my post in the morning and will link up. Be sure to check out my Make A Difference Mondays Party on my blog at I love the ideas that our teaching community is sharing with each other and families to help make a difference in the lives of children everywhere!!!

I love the birthday balloons. I saw them last summer, but couldn'tfind the large pixie sticks. Have you found them?

Have a fabulous summer.

This was my 2nd year using the clip chart system, we use it school wide, and I love it. It lets me be a little tougher on my kids and it also makes them work harder to clip back up after they've made a mistake
