I am ashamed to say that I have blogged for two years and have NEVER participated in Farley's Currently! What have I been missing?! Anywho, here is my July Currently!
Listening to Bad Blood
I'm not ashamed to admit that I am currently listening to "Bad Blood" by Taylor Swift! I go through spells as to what my style of music is. Currently, it's been a pop trend! I know....how old am I? My five year old enjoys many of the same songs and we love to sing together....not that it's any good but that doesn't stop us!
Loving Family Time
I am in love with all of the family time that I'm getting. My husband is also a teacher so all four of us are home every single day. Some days, we are swamped with little things but most days we are being lazy together. Yesterday we went geocaching! We didn't find ANYTHING yet we had a really fun time. :)
Thinking of my To-Do List
I've been to my classroom twice, both for fairly short amounts of time. My furniture is in place and I don't have a lot of big things to do. But I have several little things that will drive me crazy until I complete them. I also have a TpT list a mile long! I had such BIG plans for this summer but I'll be honest, I haven't tackled a lot of it. Ever feel like you're busier when school is out? I've also been thinking of the many things that I need to knock out before Vegas next week!
Wanting to Stay Ahead
Although I could have been a little more productive this summer, I still feel like I'm ahead of the game. My bulletin boards are done, furniture is in place, and I've worked on a few changes that I'll be implementing next year. I feel like although I'm not where I wanted to be, I'm still ahead. But how long will it last?!
Needing to go Grocery Shopping
It's summer break and there are four people in this house all day, every day! Goodness gracious, we are constantly needing to go to the grocery store. Anyone else have the same problem? My three year old daughter is currently eating like a teenage boy. I'm not even kidding. While writing this, she had to run inside not once, not twice, but THREE times to get string cheese and she had just eaten lunch less than an hour before. I believe a growth spurt is in progress!
All Star Reader
Right now, I feel like an All Star READER!!! Throughout the school year, I just don't have time to read for pleasure. I hear other teachers talk about what they are reading and I just can't make it happen. I'm participating in two book studies, Learn Like a Pirate and Building Mathematical Comprehension. I'm also following along with Teaching with Intention! All three of these books are motivating me and helping me develop who I am as a teacher. I am reading "Inside Out" with my daughter and finished Jodi Picoult's book "Leaving Time." I also just started "Truth or Die" by James Patterson.
