October Currently and Something New!

October 2, 2013

Good evening everybody!

I know I’m not the first to say it, but I can’t believe that October is already here. Time is flying and it seems like I’ve been buried! So much has been happening….so here’s a little Currently to get caught up.

Listening: I seriously LOVE this show! I was so excited to see that season 8 is finally on Netflix…so I’m staying up late watching AND blogging. I will probably regret it when the alarm goes off…but I just couldn’t wait!

Loving: Isn’t this new blog design so awesome???? Megan from Bird in Hand Designs and I Teach. What’s Your Superpower? designed it for me. I absolutely love it! If you need a new blog design, she’s the girl for you! Luckily for me she was super patient and sweet…and obviously talented!

Thinking: Maybe pizza wasn’t the best choice? ‘Nuff said.

Wanting: My husband and I just spent the weekend in Vegas…it was a great time! We watched our favorite hockey team (the Colorado Avalanche) WIN at Frozen Fury XV, spent some needed time relaxing by the pool and did a little shopping. I could use a couple more days!

Needing: Where’s the magic grading wand? I’m sure it’s under one of these piles somewhere….

Trick: I had a data analysis/planning day about two weeks ago, and then was out unexpectedly due to flooding on streets near my house. (It was crazy, but seems to be getting back to normal quickly in my neck of the woods.) Luckily, my class had already made a Guest Teacher Handbook to let any guest teacher read. It has all the important info they need to know – as decided by the students. They collaborated with a partner to create a page in the book and we illustrated it! It turned out so cool and I love how they explained the routines of our classroom. 🙂 Go third graders!

One last thing…don’t forget to check out our new collaborative math blog One, Two Three: Math Time! Lots of great posts about many different topics in math!

Well, I guess that’s about it! I hope that everyone is having a great week! And since it’s technically Wednesday…

    We collaborate together on One, Two, Three; Math Time but I just noticed you have another blog. I'm impressed that you can stay on top of all of that. I just had to comment because I love your currently card. I have a similar prompt card that I use in our Project Life family scrapbook to keep track of what one of us is currently doing. Cool prompt and now a new blog to follow.

    What a fantastic idea that Guest Teacher Handbook is! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a book suggestion. I actually have I Need My Monster in my Amazon shopping cart – the illustrations look fantastic!
