The corner in my apartment...and other things!

I just started grad school for the summer(class was delayed and cannot decide if that is good or bad yet) and I can tell that I will be so busy because I already have to have TWO books read by Wednesday. yuck! But, I am really excited because the class is about writing which I need some help with! I cannot wait to be done! MAY 2012! woohoo!

I just bought Lucy Calkins' books about Launching a Writing Workshop. I cannot wait to get started with it. Our writing curriculum with our Reading is not bueno. I bought these two:

I am currently on the HUNT for the seven units that go with it...only it is hard since the pack is like 200 dollars! I am having a hard time finding all of them. Any hints let me know!

Also the corner in my apartment is currently looking like this:
It is not as bad as last year :( We have to pack up our ENTIRE room. It is awful, so this year I made a change to lock everything up. I had to bring the easel home though, I got it through a donors choose project and I love it so much I had to keep it safe! :) Also, notice how lakeshore has currently affected my credit card bill. I got the teacher's organizer and then also some pocket charts for reader response and a phonemic awareness game! 
I pity my roommates but I told them we could always write the menu for the 4th on the dry erase part! 

I just bought Babbling Abby's first grade beginning of the year unit! Go and get it, I cannot wait to use this and my Scaredy unit too!

Have a good fourth!
