April Currently

It has been a while!

I'm so excited about SPRING!!!!

Listening- Currently watching Nashville. I'm not big on shows with 'singing' usually but this one is awesome and the songs are great!

Loving- We have had a nice warm week with no rain! Love it! Next week---- not so lucky it seems.

Thinking- I need to commit to doing more with my blog! I love it, I should do it more!

Wanting- My allergies are out of control. Seriously. I need some meds!

Needing- Is it Spring Break yet?!?! We are all getting spring fever! One more week to go!

Hours- Well, these are my "technical" hours. I rarely leave school before 5 in real life. Those who can stick to those hours are better time managers than I am!

Thanks to Oh BOY 4th grade for the linky! You rock!

Spring Fling Freebie

Hey all! I've added a Spring Freebie! It is a part of a paid product available for purchase. It is a spring word work/ sight word freebie. It includes a Making Words activity with the secret word being "gardening". Also included is a color-by-sight word activity. I hope you enjoy it! I'd love to know what you think!

August Currently

Well, better a week late than never :)


Listening- Oh the Big Bang Theory. I LOVE it- just started watching it a year ago so there are still lots of reruns I haven't seen like the one on now! YAY

Loving- We are buying our first house! So excited!

Thinking- I get to move into my NEW second grade classroom next Thursday. I've never taught primary before so I'm real excited.

Wanting- So we moved this summer and since we can't close on the house until I get PAID at the end of August we have been living in the Extended Stay since the first of July. I may never stay in a hotel again after this! I'm ready to go go.

Needing- Moving and setting up a new classroom is a lot of work. I wish it could just happen by magic :)

Back to school- I always buy myself a first day of school outfit. I helps make me excited to start up a new school year. I use the laminator like a maniac in the beginning of school. Finally, the relaxing glass of red. Good for stress and your heart!

Thanks Oh Boy 4th grade for the currently!

Job change (again)

Well all things change :) I am now going to be teaching second grade! I'm so excited! I think 2nd is such a sweet age for kids. Hopefully I like the grade since I've never taught it before! Eek!

Anyone have any tips or good bloggers to help me on my journey to primary this year?

A New Freebie for Back to School!

As much as it PAINS me to say it- the new school year is looming around the corner. I am MOVING this summer and I just accepted a job as a fourth grade teacher. I am going back to the classroom after being an instructional coach so I developed some reward coupons to help with my classroom management next year!

If you look at the current research on classroom management, it shows that using positive rewards along with redirection and consistent consequences are the most effective strategies. To help with this, I developed some reward coupons that I could live with in my new classroom. I plan on using these instead of the "prize box" which can get expensive.

Find the printable HERE.
