I am so excited to link up with the amazing Farley for the world's greatest linky. I absolutely love this month's "Currently". The colorful design is amazing and it makes me happy to just look at it!
Listening: I woke up early in hopes of finishing my "Currently" post before school. The house is quiet except for the gentle snoring of my dog.
Loving: I wanted to join the teacher blogging community for the opportunity to collaborate with amazing teachers. It has become better than I could have ever imagined. To my newest blogging besties, The Inspired Owl, The Dirt Road Teacher, The Busy Busy Hive, Teach Two Reach, The Reddish Brown Crayon, and the Grace-Filled Classroom....you inspire and motivate me to be a better teacher each and every day!
Thinking: My class will be performing the Sid Shuffle/Continental Drift at the school's talent show at the end of the month. What do you think about these?
Wanting: I just need a little fairy to come and finish the endless pile of paperwork that is accumulating as the school year comes to an end. I usually try to stay caught up on all the paperwork, but it seems like I can't get ahead this year. And...when the fairy finishes at school, maybe she could stop by my house and do a little cleaning on her way out of town!
Needing: The class science fair project is complete but we haven't completed the display board. We need to complete that soon....AND finish our Mother's Day gifts. I hope they turn out as cute as I have envisioned!
Surprise: Last week, my class enjoyed working with The Inspired Owl's Dog and Cat grammar unit. This week, I have been amazed by the quality of her Tall Tale Unit.
In past years, I have had to struggle to find resources to teach the content standards that covered Tall Tales. However, this unit has everything I could ask for and my kids have loved hearing some of the classic Tall Tales this week.
I would love for you to check out her blog....I promise you won't be disappointed!
