Thanks to Farley I'm back to blogging!
Where did the time go?
I have been swamped with some exciting (and not-so-exciting) thing the past few months.
I hope to be back at this blog more frequently.
Look for a blog make-over to be coming soon!
Now on to this month's Currently--
I love Sirius XM!
I have it in my car, and on a small player for when I'm at home.
Couldn't live without it!
We have 70 degree weather today people!
It was great to be out and about in short sleeves.
Our PLC meetings have been a bit stressful this year.
We've been trying to mesh tried and true traditions with new experiences. It takes a lot of planning.
My sweet little dog has been diagnosed with a heart murmur, and is having an EKG done this week.
I'm hoping it all turns out to be a minor issue.
He is a chipper 12-year-old cock-a-poo, and my best buddy.
Ugh - our district writing assessments were due Friday.
They are hanging over my head this weekend.
As you can see I'm blogging, rather than working on them.
The summer looks to be a fun one.
I have a new teaching position that involves some traveling each month.
I'm so excited about it, and will share more soon.
I also have getaway shopping trips in the works with some girlfriends.
And I hope to have more time to decorate my house - possibly with some new furniture.
Are you looking a way to help your students to finish the year in a strong way?
One of the things we did to encourage our students to make the most of the last few days and weeks of school was to do a lesson on "Finishing Strong".
We watched this truly inspiring video:
The kids absolutely loved it!
The music and quotes just make you want to step it up!
I created some follow up activities so the students could write down their plans for finishing strong
this school year.
We talked about perseverance, and how setting goals is the key to achieving more.
