One thing we've been able to agree on though, is where to eat! One of our favorite places is called The Crab Shack, and that is where we were served up this excellent platter of fresh seafood.
But this platter is nothing compared to the majesty of what came the next day at Coco's...
This is one of the deep fried strawberries we enjoyed for dessert yesterday. These should be illegal. Especially for people who are still trying to lose another 14 pounds this summer!
My summer reading is coming along nicely! I took some time to read "Teach Like A Pirate" today while sitting on a beach that probably had real pirates on it back in the day! I really like the book so far, I've found it to be really reaffirming of the beliefs and practices I have for my own teaching. One of my favorite quotes so far is "It's not supposed to be easy - it's supposed to be worth it."
I find it super hard to take off my teacher hat and just do other things, but I've kind of done that on this trip. I brought along the novel I'm writing a fun unit for, but haven't worked on it! I have a long list of classroom products and stuff for TpT that I want to do but just haven't had time. It's funny that my vacation is stressing me out because I'm not working!
To make myself feel a little better, I went ahead and got something where someone else had already done all the work for me! These are the three mentor sentences units from Ideas by Jivey, and have weeks of great activities included. All three are on sale through today.
If you haven't seen these yet, you should check them out! I'm really looking forward to using these next year!
And that's it for now! I'm looking forward to sharing some of the freebies I've been working on (and plan to finish!) next week!
