Currently - April

Hello Everyone! I can't believe today is April 1st. Time seems to be going by so fast at some moments and at others it seems to be moving at a snails pace.

We have made it into the home stretch for our school. We have 35 more days and it seems like there is so much left to do. We will see how much I can fit in before I say goodbye to my little first graders.

So today I am trying something new. I am linking up with Oh Boy 4th Grade for her Currently. This will be my very first link up. I am very excited to be learning so many new things in the blogging world. Here we go...

As I started working on this I was listening to Curious George tunes. My sweet girl loves to fall asleep snuggled with mommy or daddy and listening to the music from that show. There is something about that show and its music that is calming. My first graders love watching the TV series on rainy days or days that we have to eat in our rooms. It is about the only time my room is quiet. I am blessed with a very expressive group of kiddos this year.

The first graders that we have had the last year have had such a wide range of abilities in reading and math that we have decided to restructure for next year. That is one of many reasons why I love working with two of my closest friends every day. We sat after school today and designed a plan for next year and brainstormed all sorts of cool ways to make learning more effective and exciting for our kiddos.

However all that planning makes me think about my sweet girl. I am so excited to spend the next four days with her and just be a mom. I have stayed up way past normal the last few nights to make sure that all I have to do is be a mom for the 4 day weekend. My teaching hat will be hung up for the weekend. Which is probably good since now I really want and need more sleep. Hopefully my sweet girl will allow for an extra hour and a midday nap.

Well tomorrow my room will live up to my blog name. We have our Easter activities, a Fun Run with K-2 grade, a movie, and math tests. Our room is going to feel a lot like a jungle. When we have this many special activities and tests in one day my kids tend to lose control a little. Thankfully they will get to run a little energy off at the Fun Run.

Well I seem to have made it through my first link and currently! Yah!!

Have a great day!

  1. We have a four day weekend too - but 57 more days of school. The children go until the last Thursday of June and the teachers go on that Friday too. Still not very long!!! Have so much fun with your Easter activities and have a great weekend!
