My First "Back to School" Purchases for My New First Graders!

About Me

My photo
Welcome! I hope to use this blog to share some of the amazing things my class and school does to make learning fun! I have been teaching for 15 years already! I started teaching 3rd grade in a Parochial School, then I was hired to teach 1st grade for three years, was moved to 5th grade for 2 years, and then came back to 1st grade in the district where I attended school. I love that I'm able to give back the the school district that guided me to become the teacher I am today! I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, certified 1-8; a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction; and my Administrator License Pre-K-12.

Blogs I Love!

September's Currently...finally!

I think I'm a little late to the party...but it's still September so here's my "Currently" from Farley @ "Oh 'Boy Fourth Grade!"

Apparently I chose a font that is a little hard to read!  It was fine when I created it...but it looks like it lost some of it's sharpness so here are the details:

I'm currently listening to the's been so hot and muggy that I haven't dared open up my windows and turn off the air conditioner.  This weekend was cool...actually chilly with zero humidity.  It's my favorite type of weather!  I love having my windows open....except...wait a minute....ewwww!  There's a skunk!  (Of course!)

I'm loving that I get to see my niece in a whole new light at school everyday.  You kindergarten teachers are amazing!  I know there's only a year difference between us, but holy smokes...what you do everyday is awesome.

I'm thinking I need a better balance between school life and out-of-school life (whatever that is).  :)

I'm wanting a personal assistant who is also a maid....for many reasons.

I'm needing more time...for everything.

My three favorite things are Flair Pens, my laminator, and Daily 5.  Those bloggers didn't lie about how great those pens are!  My calendar has never been so colorful!  I think my laminator and Daily 5 will be my favorites forever and ever Amen!

I was wanting a little more traffic on my classroom blog, Shiver Me Firsties so I did a give-away this weekend for my students.  It kind of worked...and I have a few more ideas up my sleeve so we'll see.  You can check out my give-away post by clicking here if you're interested!

Okey dokey!  Off to post the winner of my give-away on my other blog and then follow Farley's rule of 3!

Chat soon!
