A peek at my week...

I'm linking up with Mrs. Laffin's Laughings for her "A Peek at my Week" linky party!

My week has gotten off to a rocky start if you count today as the first day of my week. Long I'll spare you the details of my morning! On a side note- I have been able to create some synonym and antonym activities with a Valentine's Day theme :) I will be creating some more things and bundle it all together- a goal I have set for myself for the week!

Friday we got a "snow day" I use quotations because we didn't actually get snow. In my *ahem" 29 years of living in Houston, it has snowed here, really snowed here, like three times? Maybe. Basically on Friday it got really cold and icy in the morning. So it was deemed unsafe to drive, and school districts closed.

This week we were supposed to be giving district benchmarks. All week. But I know the district probably planned on copying them all on Friday to give on Monday. But then we were closed Friday, so the benchmarks probably have NOT been copied for us to give on Monday. I'm collecting bets on whether or not the district pushes benchmark week out by a week due to this. That is all I will say on this subject in case someone in my district reads this. Mom always said if you have nothing nice to say, you shouldn't say anything at all, right?! 

Positive things for my week:
1. I'm teaching the parts of a letter. I LOVE this because of the song we sing. You can find it here:

2. I get to wear jeans to work all week! 

3. I've been sick (which, duh, is not positive) but I am going to stay positive and get better this week! After all, Super Bowl is Sunday and I need to be 100% because I'm hosting a party for the occasion!

4. I will FINALLY finish my DRA2 this week. I have to. It's due Friday. 

Now off to enjoy my week of feeling better, singing the Addam's family theme song, and washing all my jeans!

January Currently

I love the monthly currentlys from Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade! I have fallen off the blogging wagon since the last time I blogged was for the December currently. The holidays have been mega busy!! Now that we are in 2014 I've been thinking about this blog and what goals I can make for it. So I am going to start a new monthly linky party featuring at least one book I read and recommend (or maybe just warn you about.) 

This goes hand in hand with my New Year resolution: Read a new book each month. 

I hope to feature one chapter book (for adults/ advanced readers) and one children's book. Then you can link up adding your own recommendations. It doesn't have to be something you just finished reading. The first book I plan on featuring was purchased about three years ago and read by myself during the same time period, and once or twice more since then. 

So keep an eye out, I won't do it for the beginning of the month so as not to compete with the CURRENTLY! Beside, I should be starting my new book of the month at the beginning of the month, and then blogging about it at the end once I've read it. I cannot wait to see what others are personally reading, and what you are reading to your students. 

Happy 2014 everyone! 

You love me!
