February Currently

It's been a while since I linked up with Farley for her monthly Currently. Since it's a long weekend for me, I thought it was better late than never!

Listening: Since I'm working on this while piled up in the bed, I get the added joy of listening to one of the hubby's favorite shows. He loves Kevin Smith and comics, so he can't go wrong with this show. He was beside himself when Adam West walked into the store. Eh.

Loving: A 3-day weekend? Yes, please! Let's see if I am actually as productive as I plan to be! (Since I'll be stranded at home thanks to the never ending snowfall!)

Thinking: Ah, yes. I do have to finish my lesson plans. And the laundry. And the dishes. Sigh.

Wanting: I am in desperate need of some allergy relief. The constant weather changes this year are killing me! One day it's 70 degrees, and then the next day it is 20 and a foot of snow. Enough already!!!

Needing: My literacy block has 37-yes, 37-kids in it. The good thing is that they are all at or above grade level. The problem right now is that with every new concept, I have the same 10-12 kids that move at a slower pace. Now, if the class was only 20 kids, this would pose a huge problem. But with those 12 students, there are 25 that are ready to move on. I have a para for one hour during literacy, so I'm looking at changing things up to try to better meet the needs of everyone. Any ideas you would like to share???

And I really need to watch the movie I rented from Redbox 2 days ago!!! It's today or never!!!

Pageant Title: I never do one thing at a time. In my mind, that is a waste of time. I will only watch TV if I'm doing something else-like folding laundry, running on the treadmill, making dinner, grading papers, or cleaning up. I read in the bathtub. I read standing in line at the grocery store. I was even downloading my antivirus while working on this. It's out of control.

And that's it in a nutshell. Hopefully I'll do better next month!

Happy Presidents' Day!


  1. I was thinking multi tasker as well for my pageant name. It is funny, because I am guessing as I go through some of the links that a lot of us are going to have something like that because that's what makes us great teachers!

    Found your blog through Currently! Would love for you to head over and check out my blog…
    If You Give a Teacher a Treat

  2. I cannot imagine having 37 students in one literacy block! I struggle to manage two groups of 18-21 first graders at vastly varying levels. You will have to do a post on how you manage to fit it ALL IN!
