Wow!  Where did September October November go?  This school year is going by so fast!  I can't believe it's time for December's Currently.

Listening...  My daughters love "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" with Jim Carrey (I prefer the original!).  

Loving...  I told my youngest daughter about the Silhouette Cameo and all the wonderful things it can do a few months ago.  She convinced my husband that he should get me one for Christmas!  It came in a week ago and they couldn't stand the anticipation, so I got to open it early!  I can't wait to use it to make gift tags and lots more!!  I love it!

Thinking...  This year I'm going to have my students make Family Dinner Conversation Starters for their parents and we need to get started.  I purchased this from The Clutter Free Classroom.  I think parents will love it!  Click on the picture to check it out in her TpT store.

Wanting... It's been unseasonably warm in Indiana this weekend with a little rain this evening.  Due to this combination, there's a chance of fog in the morning.  If it's too foggy, we delay school two-hours.  A late start on a Monday morning would be a nice way to welcome the week!
Needing... I started my lesson plans last Friday but I haven't finished them yet.  I've been soooo bad about this lately!  Looks like I'll be staying up a little later tonight (another great reason for a two-hour delay).

RAK... I have two daughters with too many clothes and toys.  I usually store them to give to friends/ relatives or for an upcoming garage sale.  This year I'm going to take them to the Salvation Army for families in need.

Thanks for reading!!  Now head over to Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade and link up to December's Currently.

  2. Stopping by from Farley's blog! Love the conversation starters idea. Our students need that because I don't think many of their parents talk with them, just at them. I will have to check that out!

  3. Wow, what a Ka-Wink-E-Dink, Not only am I listening to my daughter listen to the grinch on tv, but I'm also having my students give the conversation starters as gifts too :) I just printed all the needed copies and they are headed to the laminator. Congrats on the Cameo..I'm a bit jealous.
