Weekly Catch Up 5.23.20

Hi y’all,

Happy Saturday!

I hope y’all had a great week. Mine was pretty busy. I finished up the last bit of virtual teaching for the school year. I will really miss my students that I had this year, and I’m really sad I missed out on the last quarter. We did our virtual promotion ceremony last night and it just wasn’t the same as being there in person.

I’ve been vlogging all this week, and will continue into the weekend, so you’ll have a new YouTube video on Tuesday!

On the blog this week:

Favorite Shoes

Grad School at UVA (YouTube Video)

What a Month of Spending during Quarantine Looks Like

Tips for Finding Happiness

This next week, I will be doing Responsive Classroom training. I’ve actually have done part of it before as I worked and student taught in a district that uses Responsive Classroom. It’s pretty hefty of 4 days, 7 hours each day.

What have y’all been up to? Let’s chat in the comments!

Weekly Catch Up 5.16

Hi y’all,

I was thinking of ways that I could create a series and make sure y’all got to see some everyday life. This led me to the Weekly Catch Up. It’s essentially a coffee date, but I don’t drink coffee so I wanted it to be a little more realistic to my authentic life.

love and joy

This week I created my last assignments of the 2019-2020 school year! Wooo. I’m definitely going to miss this group of kids, but I still have them next week for two more read alouds and their virtual promotion ceremony. I’ll also get to see some when do belonging pick up (hopefully in June but could be later in the summer!). I also got to chat with one of my former teachers about something for the next school year. When I was in 6th grade we did Writing Workshop and I want to implement it in my classroom next year during our Writing block. Obviously, we don’t quite know what next year will look like yet (if it will be virtual or not) but I want to be prepared no matter what it will look like. Once I get the hang of Writing Workshop, I will definitely do an update post and let y’all know how it’s going.

I filmed a video going up on Tuesday! Y’all I can’t tell you how much I dislike my internet. It took 22 hours to upload the video and it’s only 12 minutes long. I guess most YouTubers have fiber internet where it’s super fast or live in major cities where they have max speed internet. Mine is horrible though.

I wrote out some blog posts:

Mother’s Day

Blogging Accounts You Need to Have

How Influencing Needs to Change

101 in 1001 List

and I also planned my June blog posts. As of right now, all I can say is June is going to have a lot of content going live!

I also went on more walks and started the process of cleaning my room. This has been super nice!

I also started the alumnae association for my sorority in my area. I’m so excited and I was elected as the President! I know it will be a lot of work, but this is something I’m so passionate about because sisterhood is not four years, but for life!

What have y’all be up to? Let’s chat!
