October Currently

Yikes!  It's been over a month since I blogged.  When I started my blog over the summer, and I was frustrated with not having to blog about.  Now that we are back in school and I have plenty to blog about, I am frustrated about not having any time.  I guess it's time that I make the time :-)  Today I'm linking up with Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the October Currently.

LISTENING: I love the show, Nashville.  I'm a huge country music fan, and have always wanted to visit Nashville.  The show has really made me want to visit now.

LOVING: Even though winter is my favorite season, I do enjoy fall.  I especially love everything apple!  I'm hoping to visit the orchard soon to pick up some apples, apple pie, apple cider, and apple cider donuts, YUMMY!

THINKING: I really want to visit the beach.  I was looking through my pictures from my trips this summer, and I miss it.  I'm going to try to convince my husband to make the seven hour drive after work one Friday, stay for Saturday, and head back Sunday.

WANTING: I am counting down the days until we have off for Columbus Day.  My to-do list feels like it is a mile long, and I just need more time to try to get it all done.

NEEDING; When school started, I planned on writing a "First Day of School" post.  I came home exhausted.  Then it was going to be a "First Week" post, but again I felt exhausted.  Each week in September I said I was going to post, and I just never found the energy.  Maybe by posting this here and now, it will motivate me to work on a "First Month of School" post over the weekend :-)

TRICK OR TREAT: I really don't like tricks, I dread when April 1st is a school day!  I do love treats though :-)  This week we did some of my Falling for Place Value Centers.  My students really enjoyed the activities, but I realized I didn't have any technology incorporated.  So, I quickly whipped up some place value task cards with QR codes.  As a "treat", I'm sharing them with you.  You can pick them up here or by clicking on the picture.

That's all for now!  Hopefully it won't be November before I blog again :-)
