Follow This Reading Mama this Summer

This is the first day of July and I have decided…to take a break! :) Not forever; trust me. Just for most of the month of July. I will still be active and featuring posts from the After School Linky and I do have one extra post coming in mid-July, but other than that, I’m taking a little break.

What Will I Be Doing in July?

Here’s a quick list of what I’ll be doing while off-line:

  • Spending time with family. I have family coming for a month-long visit and we have a few family mini-vacations planned. I LOVE my family and am excited to be off-line more in July.
  • Re-organizing and re-arranging our schoolroom. Here’s a look at what we had before and here’s what we’ve done {from Instagram}. I have my work cut out for me in July and I’ll be sharing the updated schoolroom when it’s finished!
  • Planning out the school year. NJoy will be officially in Kindergarten this year and ALuv in 3rd. I desperately need time to plan for them.
  • Redesigning my blog…hopefully coming in mid-July.
  • Working on a special project as a companion to my ebook, Teaching Kids to Spell. {I can’t spill too much, but to say I’m excited and honored to do this is an understatement. I hope to share more about it in late July/early August!}


Looking Ahead

I have big plans for August, so stay tuned!

  • We’re going to kick off August with some giveaways you can use this school year, including one from All About Reading, my updated Reading the Alphabet Bundle Pack, and a few more…
  • The first week of August, I plan on sharing some lesson plans using our FREE BOB Book printables, as I’ve had lots of requests for those, too.
  • I don’t want to share all that’s coming, but I hope that July will refresh me as a mom, teacher, and blogger.


THANK YOU for following along and I’ll “see” you more regularly in August. Enjoy your summer! :)




  1. I hope that you have a great July! I know how it is to want to take time off!

  2. Have a great break!
