Listening: Early Tuesday mornings means time in front of the TV with my favorite special victims detectives. I could watch the same episode over and over again. I don’t know what it is but this show gets my attention every time.
Loving: I was a caffeineaholic! For the last two months I have been trying desperately to cut my caffeine intake down from 3 gasp 4 cups a day to a measly one! I’ve been trying to trick myself into thinking I’m drink two, by having a cup of half caff in the morning and another in the afternoon. It’s only one day’s worth of caffeine but my tastebuds don’t seem to realize that! I hope it stays that way!
Thinking: Ohhhh math centers how you seem to be evading me this year! I have tried THREE different structures so far this year and nothing seems to fit the bill with my schedule or kiddos. Make way for B.U.I.L.D. and Kickin’ It In Kindergarten’s fantastic math centers. The structure of B.U.I.L.D. and the free choice that it’s allowing my students (much like Daily 5) seems to be really working for us! I admire every teacher who is able to successfully do a guided math approach. However, with my time constraints as an inclusion teacher and our curriculum (enVisisions I’m looking at you!) it just hasn’t been possible. I can’t wait to continue with B.U.I.L.D. and hope to have a blog post coming up soon about how it’s working in our classroom!
Wanting: I love to cook. But, my Pinterest file of dinner recipes has been used and abused. I need new ideas! I don’t eat red meat (much to my husband’s disappointment) and I think I’m in a dinner rut. I’d love to hear some new ideas in the comments!
Needing: I need more time in the day. Exercise, Blog, Clean, TpT, Cook, Teach (oh you make sure to do that!), and spend time with family and friends. Oy with the poodles already! (Gilmore Girls fans anyone?!) I just haven’t been able to get it together yet. I’m hoping to find some balance soon. Anyone have the magic trick or is this just the constant balancing act of adulthood?!
Swooning: Last week and this weekend, I had my third cold of the year. Yes, third! I thought after 5 years of teaching that my immune system would rally behind me but it seems to have lost some soldiers this year. I am welcoming this warmer weather with open arms in hopes that it helps soothe some stuffy noses and coughs that has circulated throughout my classroom for far too long.
Well, that’s about it for me! Thank you so much as always for stopping by! Make sure to link back to Farley’s blog to read about what more teachers are currently up to!
Happy February sweet friends! I think I’ve made a New Years plus one month resolution this year and February is looking like the new January. Maybe it’s the start of a new month or one that’s filled with hearts and and all things love, but I’ve decided that I would like to roll over some goals and positivity into this next month. Who’s with me?! Let’s get a January do-over! In honor of some do-overs, I’m so excited to be linking up with the always fabulous Farley over at Oh Boy…It’s Farley! Her new blog design is GORGEOUS btw you must head over and check it out! Anyway, here’s what I’m currently up to this month!
