Summer Planning

It seems like I've been waiting for summer break since Christmas. It's finally here, and what am I doing? Spending countless hours perusing my favorite teacher blogs, reading posts in my Facebook groups, and scrolling through Twitter.

It's the teacher's plight. We just can't help it. I love the approach  Two Writing Teachers takes to the summer planning frenzy. Embrace it, know it's coming, and try to plan in some time away from it all. As in all things in my life, I need a plan if I'm going to get it done. So I am borrowing liberally from the Two Writing Teachers idea for summer planning. Here's what I'm going to do with the rest of my summer:
