October Currently

It feels like it's been forever since I have been on my blog, but thanks to Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade I forced myself to get on here because I love doing her currently. 

I'm listening....

Law and Order: SVU. I love this show but I'm really just listening to it because ever since I became a teacher, I don't really know what it's like to actually watch t.v.

I'm loving...

My 5th grade class. The first year is no cake-walk, but I have to say I absolutely love my 5th graders. They make going to work so wonderful.

I'm thinking...

That I would love to know what it's like to just "go home" at night. I don't even know what it's like to not come home and work. Maybe after the third year or so I will know what a work/life balance is. Good thing my husband has an iPad and a t.v. to keep him occupied.

I'm wanting...

To go to Las Vegas. Self explanatory. It's pretty nice that it's only about a 6-hour drive or 1 hour flight from Grand Junction. Be jealous :).

I'm needing....

My 5th graders are reading all these amazing books and I'm so jealous of them in reader's workshop. I wish I could just lay down on the floor with them and just read.... The Maze Runner, I am Number Four, the Percy Jackson series, Tangerine, City of Ember, Suzanne Collins new series.... yeah not fair!

Trick or Treat:

I love those dang caramel apple suckers...

Have a good weekend!

  1. Oooh.. Vegas.. That would be a nice vacay right now! Unfortunately, I'm in GA, so it would take me way too long to get out that way! ha! Glad to hear you are loving this class, and I hope you get some "down time" soon.. you deserve it! :)

  2. Wait...Suzanne Collins has a new series??!! I am such a book geek!

    Enjoy fifth grade! :-)

  3. I'm jealous watching my students read, too. I sneak it in at night when I should be sleeping, and then suffer the next day.

    Caramel apple suckers sound yummy!
