Currently July

It's hard to believe the I have to report in 6 weeks. Summer is half over here in Colorado. I'm linking up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for this months currently. It's raining this afternoon here. That's a first in awhile. Plus no thunder and lightening--even better. We need so much more with the wildfire but its a start. I'm loving the idea of going paperless next year. I've been working through reading and need to tackle math but the students will love this. Not to mention, less to travel will as I move from room to room. I've been reading "Teach Like a Pirate" and wondering how to use this mindset when I teach math. Many of my students HATE math. But I think with this spin, I can breathe new life into math and help them find a new love for it. I want my piles to go away. They are getting smaller but its so hard when your distracted by summertime. Well, yes-getting the oil changed in my car needs to happen at some point this month. One can hope sooner rather than later. As I'm reviewing and reflecting on the past school year, I've decided that focusing on structures and processes got me more bang for my buck-so that's what I'm looking at as prepare for the fall. Have a great July and safe travels.


  1. Going paperless sounds like a wonderful thing! I can't wait to find out how it all works for you!

    Enjoy your summer!

  2. Thanks for leaving a little comment on my blog...makes me feel loved :) Dogs can be a pain that kids are now 13 and 10 and we've seriously been sleeping in until at least 10...if not later...I feel like a teenager again...finally! But...I'm getting two baby kittens this week and I think that might all change...but they're so adorable! BTW...I'm your newest follower on bloglovin too :)
