Monthly Goals Linky: May

Today I'm linking up with Jess from I {Heart} Recess for her Monthly Goals Linky Party for the first time!  I do love a good linky and this was a nice way for me to sort of organize all my thoughts and ideas for the month.

Personal:  Lately between everything going on in our crazy lives, we have not been cooking a lot or if we have it's the same meals over and over.  I used to make a weekly menu calendar and SOMETIMES a monthly calendar but lately not so much...  Now that school is winding down and tutoring is canceled for the summer I've got some more time on my hands and hopefully will get better at cooking so my poor husband doesn't second guess this lifelong decision he made to be stuck with me, haha.

Health: Workout.  It's that simple.  I'm not promising it's going to happen y'all but at least ONCE I want to workout this month.  Laugh all you want but I have been so exhausted lately that working out at least once this month would be an improvement, haha :o)

Blogging:  I started my very first monthly linky party last month and my goal this month is to have at least ten people link up.  I got so many good ideas from April's Monthly Market and I can't wait to see what everyone has for May.  All you have to do is link up any time during the month of May (starting on May 1st) with your ideas or what you have already tried in your classroom for these three topics: Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day, and the End of the Year.

School:  I'm already in the process of creating summer reading bags for my homeroom students so I'm feeling pretty good about this goal!  I'm including one middle school Sunshine State Book for next year, our county's reading log program for the summer, Barnes and Nobles' summer reading adventure logs and a bookmark so far.  I would like some other things but we shall see, maybe a visit to the public library for their summer reading program or a calendar of events...  Any ideas?

Fun:  I know this is kind of out of my hands... but I REALLY want a house.  So that's my goal!  I'm going to do everything in my power to get us one, lol.  Wish me luck!

Head on over to Jess's blog (it's really cute) and link on up!  What are your goals this month?


  1. I am always looking for new linkies because you are right that it is so nice to have so good ideas all in one spot! I will be back come May 1st to hopefully help out with your blogging goal! :)

  2. I love your idea of summer reading bags! I think that is a great idea to help motivate students to read over the summer. My mom always made me read and practice my math facts over the summer. It sure did help!

  3. Thanks for linking up! I look forward to linking up to your May linking :) Love your blog design, SUPER CUTE!


  4. Sabra,
    Summer reading bags....too cool. I have a product on TpT that might be a good match and I'd be happy to send it to you via email as a freebie if you think it might be useful in achieving your goal. Check it out...
