Currently May

I am so out of it that I was totally surprised when I saw everyone's "Currently" posts.  I guess it is a new month...

Listening - To Matthew West.  Love his music!

Loving - Actual *spring* weather.  It seems in NC we typically get the extremes.  I'm loving the fact that I don't need heat or AC, and I can wear whatever I want without a jacket.  I'm trying to soak up this sweet weather before the heat of summer.

Thinking - About our kindergarten registration tomorrow.  Sixty new kindergartners are coming for testing and it is so exciting to meet them and imagine which ones I'll teach next year!
(On a side note, I was explaining to my students what they would be doing while the new kindergartners are at school tomorrow.  We started talking about going to first grade, and one of my students said "Wow, you've got a lot of stuff to pack before we move up there."  So...I had to tell him I wasn't moving with them to first grade.  It was a pretty rude awakening for some of my sweet students.  They asked if they could just stay in K.)

Wanting/Needing - It is the time of year that I worry about my kids reading on grade level.  Maybe it's just my school, but the pressure is really on this year.  I know I need to stop stressing and just focus on making the most of this last month, but I'm still worried!

Summer Bucket List - I'm looking forward to spending time this summer working on some new products I have in mind for TpT and also organizing some of my teaching materials - and my computer files.  And...I'm really excited to visit the beach for a week in June, and spend time at the pool all summer long :)

And a funny one of my sweet English language learners was building at the blocks center.  All of a sudden, he yelled that his building was "sexy."  The room went silent.  I had to explain to him that it wasn't a school word, but it was just so funny hearing how he used it.  It was obvious he had no clue what it meant.

Link up your currently with Farley!


  1. So sweet that they thought you would move with them!

  6. Well, I guess he's heard that word as a compliment! :) We get a lot of pressure too-I feel badly for those kiddos for whom those skills just haven't kicked in yet. :( That's funny about moving to 1st Grade-I may actually do it with my group next year and I know they will expect it every year after that! :)


    1. Yeah, I did it once, and loved it, but this year my class dynamic isn't right for it. Good luck if you end up moving up!

  7. That's sweet that you kids want to stay with you! My kids are saying the same thing (last year's group was a different story). They keep inviting me to hang out with them this summer. One girls said that I was going to babysit her everyday in the summer. Uh, no thank you!!

    1. That's so funny! Some of my kids have asked when I'm going to invite them to my house, haha!
