April Currently

It's that time of the month!  Time to link up with Farley over @ Oh' Boy 4th Grade!  So without further ado..


I don't even know why I'm up right now.  I'm still on break and should be sleeping in!  I'm watching Extreme Makeover Home Edition.  This show is so heartwarming.  I helped out during one of these builds in my home town, it was a lot of fun!  Got to hang out with Paige and watch her do her stuff!

Anyway, I am loving have 1 more week of break.  I'm just not ready to go back yet.  Plus I'm being sparred the 2nd grade versions of April Fools tricks!  Little do they know, I will get them when we get back, April 1st or not!!

I really need to get planning so I don't have much to worry about.  Fourth quarter always brings lots of craziness.  We have a super fun Non-fiction reading & writing unit that goes along with our Life Cycles unit.  My kiddos are going to be doing a big research project about any animal of choice & creating a powerpoint, so I've got a lot of putting together to do for this project. It's going to be so much fun!!

Need to clean.. nuff said :)

I've always been a believer in "Positive thoughts bring Positive outcomes!"  I even taught myself how to avoid getting sick *FLU sick*  I know it sounds kind of ridiculous, but I am totally not even joking.  I haven't been sick since 6th grade!  Boom!

OH, by the way.  Have you heard of this new site, Educents?? It's launching tomorrow and if you head on over today, you can take advantage of a $10 coupon for your first purchase.  Click here to sign up!  They're going to be offering what they say to be some pretty sweet deals on stuff for all of us lovely educators!

If you haven't already, head on over to Farley's blog to link up!


  1. You get TWO weeks of Spring Break?!? That was my "wanting" since I have to go back today :(

    I am glad I found your blog through Farley's link up!


    T.G.I.F. (Thank God it's First Grade!)

  2. So glad I found your blog! I need to clean, too, but since it is spring break, I think I am going to postpone that for a couple of days. I hope you enjoy your second week of spring break!

  3. Wow! another week of spring break for you! Jealous!! I'm still laying here in bed, listening to Dozer snore and blogging! Ah....the joys of Spring break! Enjoy yours!!


  4. That's quite impressive about not getting sick since 6th grade! I think I'm pretty similar in that I hate throwing up so much I think I honestly don't allow my body to do it...but then it comes up another end. lol Too much information? Well, you started it!!!!! :)

    Enjoy week 2 of your spring break!!

  5. WOOHOO, your spring break allows you to prepare for Easter and then recover from it! Enjoy your extended break and I would so prank the kiddos regardless of whether or not April Fool's was a school day as well!

  7. Dang I need your immune system!! I used to watch extreme makeover home edition all the time. They did a house here in Raleigh when I was in college. My mom went and watched the reveal - I was super jealous I couldn't be there!
