After such a long week I am happy to have a chance to link up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade. I love each months' CURRENTLY. Finding new blogs and visiting old favourites each month is something I look forward to. Click on the link above if you want to find out what's CURRENTLY going on with all my friends in the blogiverse!
Listening: I think spring might have finally sprung in Toronto! It has been one of the longest, darkest, loneliest winters ever! I think I must suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) because I am so much HAPPIER when there is sun every day!
Loving: We have had a year of labour strife in Ontario. It continues as I write this, but things might be improving. I just have to wait and see. In the meantime, workshops resumed, and I signed up to go to one this afternoon. It was nice to come home for lunch (although I didn't have much time to eat) and then park my car and walk to the workshop location. The topic was Puberty Education and I got a lot of new strategies and ideas for teaching this unit. I also received a TON of free resources, and who doesn't love a FREEBIE?
Thinking: I cannot believe that there are only 8 weeks left at school. I admit that I envy my teacher buddies to the south who are out at the end of this month, but geesh, I would never be done! I still have to teach a major unit in both science and social studies. I am glad that I have covered all the math curriculum and most of the language! Where did this year go? In my 23 years, I don't think a year has ever flown by like this!
Wanting: I really WANT a new purse. My old one is about 5 years old. I love it, but it is literally falling apart at the seams, the handles, the bottom! I cannot find another bag I like though...I have to fall in LOVE with a bag to buy it, and it had better last! Any suggestions?
Needing: TIME! nuf said
Summer Bucket List: I honestly would like to say "go back to Nova Scotia" but I know this is not doable in my current situation. So...I will have to admit that the way I have my classroom organized LOOKS great, but it isn't working for me! I need to take everything out of the cupboards, and off the shelves and out of drawers and figure out a better way! I have so much stuff, but I can never lay my hands on what I need, so I buy more, and then I can't find it the following ___________(insert hour, day, week, month, year). Sad but true, I need to cross this task/chore off my bucket list!
