Currently: September

September is in full effect, friends!!! I can't wait to get the ball rolling.... I am linking up with Farley for September: Currently

Listening: I love this movie. It was on Lifetime this week, and I recorded it. YOU KNOW WHY!!!!!!!!!

Loving: This school year, many of my colleagues have reached out to me with requests for products, I have had WONDERFUL collaboration with my team, and beyond, and am really feeling the vibe. I love my school and my district, and I love how willing the teachers are to collaborate! It makes all of our classrooms better. 

Thinking: Yep. It is that time again VERY soon. Like 2-days-away soon... And I can't wait. Can you believe I haven't been since the last day of school in MAY?!? It's about darn time. Be checking Periscope for broadcasts from my favorite place. 

Wanting: More time!! Who couldn't do more with extra time? Like, run loads of laundry BEFORE there is nothing to wear? Put the clean dishes away BEFORE the sink is full? I am running around like a chicken without a head these days with any "free time" I may have. MORE TIME would be great, thanks. :)

Needing: This goes with my "want" list. I am finding myself having trouble losing weight lately because, alas, I am having trouble making my days  less-than-2 Dr. Peppers days.

3 Goals:
1. Dynamic lesson delivery. I know we ALL have "those" days, but I want to make sure that I am trying my best to have engaged, dynamic lessons that TEACH my students in a meaningful way. 
2. Um, can I say the first 3 weeks KICKED. MY. BUTT?! Not in a bad way. I just have been giving it my all and trying to keep up with my students, but I have also noticed that when I am tired, my blogging just doesn't. HAPPEN. So, I am going to do my darnedest to be consistent with my blogging schedule. Now, I am going to cut myself a break when report card time rolls around, but I am still going to PLAN to be consistent. :)
3. I want students to MASTER those kindergarten high frequency words, darn it! :) I have 4 kids who have already passed our first "level" of words! We are on our way! My main reason for this is that some of our consumable books with our curriculum teach 2 or 3 sight words at a time, and I would like to have some of the students have them mastered before first reads. It also is a major help with writing, which is another big focus of mine this year.

    1. Thanks! I love "meeting" people who share my passion for the D.P. !! :) SOOOO necessary sometimes!

  3. Love What Happens in Vegas!! Now…I want to watch that movie :P I agree with ya too. I could use some more time….for life! Enjoy yourself at Disneyland!! Lucky duck!
