April Currently!

I just joined the Currently Linky Party from the blog Oh Boy 4th Grade.

Listening:  To one of my favorite groups the Foo Fighters.  Saw them in concert last year and they were incredible.

Loving:  I was so excited this morning when I opened my email and discovered I won the 6-8 bundle from Confessions of a Teaching Junkie's Giveaway.  I won some really great products and a TPT gift certificate too.  What a fantastic way to start the month!!

Thinking:  I go back to school tomorrow and can't believe the State Assessments are right around the corner.  I have to still teach functions to my 6th grade class and then move right into test prep. I plan on using my task cards, partnering activities, Scoot, some of my new items from the giveaway,  power points and other activities to keep the students engaged and interested.  

I am really wanting some sunshine and warmer weather.  It has been a really long winter and very grey--depressing!  I hope the weather warms up fast so I can get my capris and flip flops out!  My toes are ready!

Needing:  It has been I while since I had a night out with the girls.  I am going to plan one soon so we can catch up and laugh!

Advice:   I truly believe positive thoughts and attitudes will bring positive results. Let your students know how smart and wonderful they are everyday.  If they know you believe in them they will always do well.

Happy Spring Everyone!!

  3. We do our state testing in November (WI) so we don't do a bunch of test prep like I see teachers in other states doing. Good luck with it! I could use a GNO myself. Time with girlfriends is priceless.
