Speaking of another month....I have decided to link up with Farley over at Oh Boy Fourth Grade with her "Currently" Linky Party. So without any further delay, here is mine:
Listening - to the humming of my refrigerator was actually a peaceful relaxing sound that I needed after having 15 gifted students ranging from 2nd - 6th grade in one room with me from 8:00 am until 2:00 pm. Now this in itself isn't so bad....but trying to have them all doing an art project at the same using watercolor....well lets just say....I feel extremely lucky that only two spill mishaps happened during this project today!
Loving - Really for the same reason as I posted above. However, I do honestly love my quiet time.
Thinking - Oh yeah...I really need to get to work on that Australia unit. The kiddos in my classes are looking to start that little puppy next week. Yeah...more art work...this time aboriginal. I know...I am a GLUTTON for punishment.
Wanting - Oh...I know... I can see you questioning this one...after all, what teacher goes to three different schools to serve students in a week. That teacher would be ME! I would really like to be able to go to one school everyday of the week.
Needing - to get more focused. My mind has really been all over the place lately. I start working on something and WHAM all of a sudden, I'm onto something else. Crazy...I know!
Pet Peeves - Making excuses is probably the pet peeve that is highest on my list. It really gets under my skin when people/students start to make excuses instead of standing up and taking responsibility for things. Then there is the tattling.....I despise to hear a student tattling. It is my opinion, that tattling is normal for small children, but if you have reached at least 2nd grade, it NEEDS to STOP!
OK...it is time for me to get off my soapbox now.
I also want to talk about the fact that very soon I expect that I will have 100 followers on this blog. So....I thought a giveaway would be in order once this milestone is reached. I already have some mighty fine TpT sellers who are providing some great items from their stores as prizes. Obviously, I can't start this giveaway until I have actually reached 100 followers...but it shouldn't be long now! So be sure to keep checking back so you don't miss the opportunity to win these awesome prizes.
OK...I know this has been a long post....but I'm signing off now! See you soon!
