October Currently

Thursday, October 2, 2014
Bring on the boots, pumpkins, and scarves...it's time for October!  Notice how I left out Halloween? I do not love Halloween, it's safe to say I don't even like it, but I do like candy.  So there's that. And I do love Currently with Farley!


1. I have different "moods" of stations on Pandora.  When I need to just get it done, I put on Zac Brown Band.  When I need to chill out, I put on yoga, film scores, or classical.  When I'm ready to party, I have a few to choose from.  When I'm with my students, we listen to Disney or KidzBop.  Pandora gets me through the day.

2. I always have such a hard time finding boots due to my beautiful calves.  I guess they really are normal calves, actually, but for whatever reason boot makers like to make boots for women whose legs look like toothpicks.  Anyway, I found boots and I can't wait to wear them!

3. I recently blogged about my structure for my 4th/5th combined ELA class.  We've got morning work, GoNoodle, reading groups, spelling, and grammar going on.  We do not, however, have writing.  I have to figure out a way to get the writing in and I've realized most of my students need Empire State level scaffolding, so independence is a ways off.

4. I'll be done in December! Yay! Just a few more papers to write.  Which I was supposed to work on last night.  And the week before that.  And the WHOLE summer before that. Ahem.

5. Movies and dinner sound like a great way to procrastinate my grad school papers...anyone around this weekend?

6. Treat!!! Like I mentioned, I love candy but I don't love Halloween.  I mean, I can put on a costume for our little parade at school, but no way no how am I going to Party City from Labor Day to Thanksgiving.  Too many scary things.  So instead of a trick, I'm going to put both my Halloween Mini Books on sale tonight- there might even be a freebie.

Great Halloween mini book- perfect for my class!

If your students love Halloween, they will love this book! This mini-book is great to use as a substitute lesson or in a literacy center.   This mini-book is three entries in the diary of a gender neutral witch. It addresses overcoming fears about going to school, making friends, and trying your best.

Make sure you're following me on Facebook to find out when it is!

  1. I L-O-V-E the film score station on Pandora -- like in a weird, obsessive way!! haha! It's so fun and relaxing!! Yesterday, my baby was crying and I turned this station on, and it was like a miracle! He totally calmed down! HALLELUJAH!

    Also, I LOVE your blog design! So fun and happy!!

  3. I fell in love with boots and scarves about 2 years ago. I remember trying on the first 2 pairs and feeling defeated, but eventually I found the right fit. I hope you get your girl's night soon :)
