First Currently and A Lot of Other Stuff

Hi ya'll!
It's September! I can't believe the first week of school is over. I am pleased to say that I have survived. My kiddos are great (that is what I will keep saying), my room is coming along, and our team is rocking. In the last year and a half, Tina and I have lost two teachers to retirement and one moved up to fourth grade. Our two newest members are new teachers and they are so awesome. It's crazy how good they already are!

Breaking News- My students love Whole Brain Teaching! I jumped all in this year and am enjoying every minute of it. I like creating gestures for whatever we are learning. And my kiddos love teaching and switching and mirroring with words and, ... If you do not know this Whole Brain Teaching, check out the vids on youtube.

I am linking up with Farley for her Currently Link Up.

Wanting~ I want to make a positive difference in the lives of my students, each and every day.

Heart- Love myself spot- I need to start exercising every day, I need to leave school at a reasonable hour unlike last week when I stayed at school until 6 too many times, and I desperately need a pedi and I want a pedi and a pedi will make my heart happy =)

I also finished our new Chrysanthemum unit just in time for next week.

  1. I absolutely love the Classroom Friendly pencil sharpener. I have my whole school wanting one now since they love mine so much!

    I am a huge fan of Whole Brain Teaching as well. I started it this year and I am absolutely loving it so far! The kiddos are having a blast with it as well!

  2. I am also a fan of the Classroom Friendly sharpener. I showed the "How to Sharpen" video on the first day of class and my students appeared too "cool" to not understand how to use it. Then at open house, I had several show their parent how to use the new sharpener. It was great!
