October Currently

It's finally here....the October Currently! I am linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for this month's currently.

1. I am sure many of us are listening to the same thing tonight. I think it is so important to be informed and to make an educated vote, so this debate is essential tonight.

2. OMG!!! I can't believe it, but I can officially say I have my own laminator! I have been talking about this for months and my mom surprised me at work today with a laminator! Our laminator at school has been broken since the beginning of the year and is not going to be fixed anytime soon. I have been giving my mom all the things I need laminated so she could take it to Lakeshore to get it done. (I know, I have an awesome mom! I agree!). Well, she dropped off the things I needed laminated as well as a Lakeshore laminator! Yes folks, Christmas has arrived early! Thank you, Mom!

3. For years, my team partner and I have tried to figure out how to implement a reading intervention program that worked for all of our students. I think we figured it out finally. You can read about it here. It ROCKS!

4. I love Fall! It is one of my favorite seasons. I just don't happen to live in a place where fall starts at the end of September. It has been over 100 degrees everyday this week. It needs to end! Time for some cool weather, PLEASE! I want to wear my jeans, boots and sweaters. 

5. There are never enough hours in the day to get everything done! Enough said!

6. I just read this book to my kiddos this week. They love it and it gets us all excited for Halloween.

I can't wait to read everyone's Currently for the month. Stop on by and link up!


  1. The weather seems to be a common spread across the currently's...lol We've had quite a few hot 100 degree weather days in the past week. I live 30 min north of San Diego. I was just looking in my closet at my boots today and can't wait to wear them!!

  2. I am SO JEALOUS of your laminator. I saw how I can use Scholastic bonus points for one, maybe worth it. Don't know which brand to go with, do you have a preference? My school has a cold laminator, it's nice for posters but I prefer a hot laminator.

    I am attempting my first linky & following the rules - nice blog. My kiddos love Froggy's Halloween - for the "I'll pull down your underwear" line!


  3. Thanks for sharing! I found you on the October Currently! I am a SoCal'ite too and I CANNOT wait until Fall weather comes here. I want scarves, boots and jackets more than anything!
    Come and check out my current Currently!

  4. I also love Fall, especially in Washington State. I like the idea of wearing scarves and boots to work on a daily basis. And I can't agree with you more, we need more time in our day!

  5. I said the same thing on the needing area. Don't you wish we could just freeze time so we could get a lot of work and sleep done? Me TOO!

  6. It's chillin off here in Cali (so it's not in the 100s) but still sportin shorts and a tank top. So ready to bust out cozy sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes!
    Hopping over right now to read about your reading program. The suspense is killing me...
