I am a first grade teacher who has rediscovered a love for firsties this year. I have taught pre-k, kindergarten, first grade and even second over the past 16 years. I have been married for 17 years to my wonderful husband and have been blessed with 2 very active boys.

August Currently

As much as I LOVE Currently, this month is bittersweet as it signifies the end of summer vacation and the beginning of a brand new group of firsties!

We totally hung around the house today (which hardly ever happens) and the boys had friends sleep over and stay the day.  They love video games, but we need to turn them off VERY SOON!

My principal called me on Monday and asked if I would take an intern starting August 12th!  I am so excited.  I have avoided it for many years as I am maybe a little OCD :)  This year I decided to take the plunge.  I was thinking a January intern, but God had a different plan! I would love some advice.

I totally neglected my house and to-do list this summer.  We spent almost 4 weeks away and then had 2 weeks with company.  CRAZY and FUN times!  

Have you seen the new rugs at Ikea?  Can you say $19.99?!?  I already see it in my library:)

I love Reagan's Rise and Shine Binder.  Have you seen it?  Of course you have!! So of my  blogging friends are using as part of their morning work.  I am thinking I might use it as part of my morning meeting, word work and small group instruction.  More to come on that:) Just know this is a MUST HAVE!

So now don't forget to head over and check out Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade and everyone who has linked up with her Currently!

  1. Tammy,

    I'm also thinking about my summer To Do's! But luckily I still have a couple weeks to fit it all in! Hope you get your rug!


    Loving your idea of the time machine! Wouldn't that be amazing. Would make teaching that much easier (hopefully).


  2. Tammy- I have those to-do's that ended up being to-didn't. :( But the list will still be there- and you have so many memories of what you did do! Love your new rug! I get my haircut tomorrow!;)
