Currently It's October...Really?

October already?

I'm linking up with Farley for this month's Currently.  I've missed the last two months, I think??

Listening: To the TV in the background and my sweet dog moving around on the floor.  Poor fella is getting a little old and when he moves around, it seems to catch my attention.
Loving: My ELL students! I love working with these students.  In the few short weeks that I have been working with them, I have seen tremendous growth already.  Plus, they are precious.  PRE.C.IOUS!!
Thinking: About the weekend...need to take care of a bunch on the growing "to do" list around the house...
Wanting: To hit a few more bucket list items this school year.  It's my daughter's senior year, so time is of the essence.  I can't believe she'll be off to college next fall.
Needing: Pretty much nothing...except maybe more time.  Or a time machine.
And for my Trick or Treat:

I recently hit a milestone on Teachers Pay Teachers and this week, I am celebrating by sharing my Multiplication Lapbook.  You can still snag a free copy until Sunday!  Thank you to everyone for all of your support over the last 3 years!

Now, what have you been up to lately?  Check out everyone's CURRENTLY over with Farley!

  2. This is my fourth year teaching. I've been ESL certified since year one but most of my students the first three years had high language skills. This year, however, is completely different. I'm amazed every day at how small their vocabulary is. Any good tips/resources for ELL's for this rusty ESL teacher?? Oh, and love your blog design!

    Terrific Teaching and Learning

  3. What are some things on your bucket list? I may need to start one of my own soon! :)
