My three most notable accomplishments today:
1. I went to Big Lots, my favorite store for back-to-school prep, and bought a huge new (clean) carpet and more floor pillows for my independent reading corner and some composition notebooks. Lest you think these composition notebooks are not noteworthy, these were college-ruled composition notebooks for only 39 cents. I stocked up.
2. I discovered Corbett Harrison's website and have been knee-deep in incredible writing instruction all afternoon. I am so excited to adopt his Writer's Notebook format with my AVID class and finally, FINALLY, get them producing some quality written work. I bought the full set of his Writer's Notebook Bingo Cards, and my fingers are tingling I am so excited to use them! It doesn't help that I had an enormous iced coffee this afternoon, either.
