Currently: August 2014

· ·
With all of the excitement of moving into my classroom today I completely forgot that it was August 1st!  So, I’m back for a second blog post today to link up with Farley from [Oh Boy 4th Grade] for her August Currently linky party.
Listening:  I’m so bad about needing background noise… I always have the TV or music playing in the background.  Must be why I do so well in 1st grade! haha!  Right now it’s The Real Housewives of OC.  Nothing like some mindless reality TV, right?
Loving:  I am so in love with my new school!  We had a new teacher meet and greet this morning and then I was able to move into my classroom.  It feels good to have all my teacher stuff cleaned out of the house.  I was able to get all of the furniture exactly how I want it today and all of the old decorations taken down.  Stay tuned for pictures of before and after!  My new classroom used to be a 3rd grade room so there’s a ton of 3rd grade curriculum stuff in there as of now, but hopefully that will move to it’s new home soon!
Thinking:  Ideas for decorating and organizing my classroom are flying through my head!  I literally just sat down on the carpet, ya know… 1st grade style, for a bit today just to look around and think about what I want to change/add/get rid of.  I ended up with a super long list of ideas.  The hard part will be prioritizing them!
Wanting:  PIZZA!  Ah, I know that it’s bad for me, and I’ll probably end up at the pool tomorrow.  But, I just can’t resist it right now!  I feel like I deserve it after a long day in the classroom, right?  I’m also really wanting a cute outfit for the 1st day & meet the teacher night.  The darn cleaners lost my favorite blue pants, so those need to be replaced ASAP!
Needing:  I “want” a ton right now, but don’t really “need” anything.  I’m feeling pretty content with my life right now :).
1st Day:  That’s pretty self-explanatory :).  I’ve got a week to get my classroom up to par before we hit content PDs hard on the 11th.  Time to work!

Need to read more about what summer-loving teachers are currently doing now that it’s August?  Head over to [Oh Boy 4th Grade] for more August Currently posts!


  1. Wow, I'm surprised you have your meet and greet so soon before going back to school, that's great! We have ours like the night or two before. I always have to have something playing in the background on the TV too just to keep myself occupied while I do other work.

  2. Don't feel sorry for wanting pizza. If I could, I'd eat pizza pretty much every day!

    Maybe after eating the pizza, you'll be able to sort through all your ideas and decide on which ones to implement ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love that you don't "need" anything right now. It shows that you're just living the moment and the moment is good!

    Have a great year in your new school!!!
