May Currently

It’s MAY!  Not too sure where April went.  Now next week is PASS testing and tomorrow is Relay for Life.  And then field day and a field trip and cookout day and soaring stars day and move- up day!  WOW!  I’m whooped already!  Cookout day is the day when we ALL each lunch outside as a school community.  It’s a great time to see everyone together.  Hopefully it won’t rain! J  Soaring Stars is something that we do one time each nine weeks.  We celebrate those kiddos who have soared to success through grades and character all 9 weeks long.  Last 9 weeks we took them to the movies to see “The Croods” but this 9 weeks is a water day!  They are going to be soooooo excited when they find out!!!!!  Move-up day is one of my favorite days of the school year.  My fourthies will move up for 30 minutes and meet their 5th grade teacher.  I will get to meet my class for next year.  I usually play an introductory game with them and tell them a little about myself.  May is going to be fantastic and I’m ready to get it going.

And with it being the beginning of May that means it’s time to link up with Farley for her CURRENTLY!


Listening: Lady Antebellum is one of my favorite country groups.  I was stoked to see Hilary on “The Voice” too!  I try to harmonize with them in the car…. Everything sounds better in the car! J

Loving: So I was pinteresting… my favorite hobby… and I stumbled upon an app called “Level It.”  It’s $2.99 and I normally don’t buy a bunch of apps but this one was calling my name!  This app scans the barcode of your book (or you can manually enter the ISBN) for it to level the book!  You can save your search and build your classroom library in the app.  I typically use an excel spreadsheet to keep track of all of my books but this also has a system where kids can check books and in and out from your library!  OH MAN!

Thinking:  I need to study for my Reading Specialist test on Saturday.  I’ve made flashcards but I really need to do some heavy duty studying!

Wanting:  I saw the cutest skirt EVER at Target that I must purchase.

Needing: Surgery on my foot is upon me.  I am having it done AS SOON as school gets out for the summer.  I will recover for 2 months with no weight on it at all.  BLAH.

Summer Bucket List:  Because I’ll be off my foot all summer, it gives me the opportunity to make lots and lots of products for my TPT store!  My family has scheduled a trip to Ocean Lakes and my boyfriend’s family has scheduled a trip to Panama City… I REALLY want to go on both.  Major to just sit in the house (OL) and hotel (Panama) and chill.  Hopefully there is Wi-Fi!  And recover.. quickly!

  7. I had foot surgery on both feet a couple of summers ago so I understand your frustration but it is the best time to do it! Unfortunately, I had to take an impromptu trip to Puerto Rico and that was tough! So I will be thinking about you!
