August Currently... :)

Hey everyone! Again, I've been MIA...I have to get better! We went to visit hubby's parents for the weekend and first part of the week, then Wednesday and Thursday, I had a workshop to write the School Improvement Plan.  They change the template every year it seems, so we can never work off of one we have from the previous year...UGH.  Anyways, we got it completed (for now...seems something ALWAYS has to be changed.  Like we don't know what we as a school need to improve on?), so now I can get back to bloggy land for the last few weeks before school starts.  :-\

Hubby built my bookcase to go under the window in my classroom! Now he just has to paint it, and help me complete my bench to go on top!  Hopefully it will be ready in time for Monday Made It!  I also got to make a pennant to hang over my windows! My mother-in-law worked on it ALL DAY Monday!  But it turned out so cute! Can't wait to get back to school to hang it!

I'm linking up with Farley from Oh Boy 4th Grade for August Currently!  

B2S Must Haves:

1.  Clothes! Ever since I was little, I have LOVED back to school shopping!  Something about a new outfit for the first day of school! This weekend is tax-free weekend in North Carolina, so I always take advantage! However this past year, I have put on a TON of weight...and have no explanation for it.  No matter what I do, I can't seem to get it off! So while I would LOVE to go shopping this weekend for that "back-to-school" outfit, I don't want to spend a lot of money on clothes I hopefully won't be able to fit into soon! On the other hand, I don't know if I have many clothes that FIT right now, so I need to buy at least ONE right?!

2- Guided Math.  LOVE it!  I tried my hand at math workshop last year, and it was a struggle, let me tell ya! But I feel I have gotten some great ideas from this book, and can't wait to implement it!

3- Ear buds for students- We have head phones at each computer in our labs, however, have you ever thought about those things being on someone's head, and then on yours? No telling what you can get! And as many cases of lice I had in my room last year (from TWO students), I just get the hibby jibby's thinking about it!  So, I plan to get ear-buds for each student, so they can have their own, and we won't have to worry about that!

That's it! I'm off to go walking!  Hopefully I can finish up the last few little projects I have, so I can post this weekend!  Be sure to go link up with Farley! 


  1. Love handy men! =) My dad (I'm not married yet haha) built me some cabinets for my classroom this summer! Can't wait to see Monday Made It pictures! =)

  2. I was shopping last night and found four dresses and two skirts while shopping on vacation. Score! How awesome that your hubby made you a bookshelf. And I totally know that you mean about working out. I am on vacation and I really need to do a food detox after this week of overindulgence.

  3. Can't wait to see your bench. Also loving the Olympics.

  6. Girl I feel you on the weight issue! Whew, I am heavier than I've ever been and had to buy some pants for school simply because my others did not fit. Sigh. :(

    It's tax free here too and I am heading to the teacher store this morning!
