Currently November

So glad it's the weekend and it's the beginning of November - my favorite time of year!  I'm linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for her November Currently.
I can't believe I'm so close to 300 followers!!!  295 to be exact!  I want to do a giveaway of my favorite things.  My goal this weekend is to learn how to set up a giveaway on Rafflecopter.  You'll know soon if I was able to figure it out!
How many of you have a never ending list of products to make?  I have three from the list that I'm working on right now.  Maybe with that extra hour tomorrow I'll be able to finish one!
Is it horrible that I don't play music in my classroom?  I've tried in the past but have found that my students eventually talk over the music.  I would like to incorporate music as a reward, so if you have any tips on how you include music in your classroom please let me know!!
On a side note, I had my first 45 minute observation of the year this week.  I chose a math lesson and it went very well.  Even after 18 years of teaching, I still get nervous about being observed!  Have a great weekend and enjoy your extra hour tomorrow!!

  3. Hi Aimee,
    I'm follower're almost there! I don't use music either. I've tried but just never got into it. I play it when we have a party in the classroom! Does that count? LOL! I hear ya on the observations. I've been teaching 23 years and I still get nervous. My principal is bringing 8 principals and our area director in my room on Wednesday....I am super nervous!! I too have a list of products. I start one and think of another one!! We need summer!
