My first Currently post!

Okay, I think this is fairly self explanatory, but I'll do a bit of explaining.  Up here in the North, our summers are dicey.  You never know what you're going to get.  Those first few hot days in June might be all you get - so it's important to use them wisely.  Which is tough, being in school still.  But we did make the best of it.  Anyhow, the last week of July was terrible!  Rain, thunder, lightening.  Not summery at all.  So, it's nice to see some hot weather today.  I celebrated with a walk with a friend.  (Which is why the pup is snoring - he's exhausted.)

A teacher friend and I are spending a lot of time this summer working on school things.  See this post.  I've also decided to switch how I teach math.  I'd like to do some math notebooking as well as more math stations.  Those I did last year worked REALLY well, so I want to continue that.  However, they require a lot of prep.  So, I've been printing, cutting, laminating, and cutting again.  Time is running out.

Which leads me into wanting to get into my classroom.  My storage pieces for math stations are there.  My new stations are here.  Problems!

My 3 B2S must haves.....
1) A new teacher bag - mine is black.  And boring.  And old.  I need a new one.  Plain and simple.

2) My classroom has no storage!  Seriously, none.  I've put in a request.  We'll see what I get.  I'm hopeful.

3) A Smart board.  I think one is in the works.  I can live without it.  But I'd really rather not.  I do love Smart boards quite a bit.

That's all!  Thanks for reading.

Now, head on over to Oh Boy Fourth Grade and read some more!


  1. I'm done with the hot weather. Of course, I'm not ready for the winter either. I would like some cooler weather. I'm in the desert. :)

    1. When you live in a place with snow every month of the year (seriously!) and a good 9 months have continuous snow on the ground, a little hot weather is appreciated!

  2. OOOH! I would love to have a SMARTBoard too! I hope you get one, because I'm sure I won't. :)
