Currently December

December is HERE! That means all kinds of festivities, decorations, friends, family, and food! YUM! To get this month started, I'm linking up with Oh' Boy 4th Grade for her Currently linky.

Listening: I know I'm the last one on earth to find out about this series, but I just started watching it on Netflix a few months ago and I LOVE it! The characters are great and the story lines are clever... I'm hooked!

Loving: So far, my students are still working hard and haven't become too distracted by the quickly-approaching holiday break. Fingers crossed. This could completely change tomorrow. 

Thinking: I've planned to do a LOT in these next three weeks, and I'm really hoping all goes as planned. (See above.)

Wanting: Since the beginning of the school year, I've been trying to figure out a schedule (and gym) that works for weekdays and weekends... Luckily I live only a few miles from where I work (but public transportation makes the distance seem greater!).

Needing: Well, now that December is here, I have to stop procrastinating and finish booking my flights for the holidays... I'm going to France and Spain! I still have one more ticket to book.

Giving: I wanted to give something that teachers could use this holiday season. I know we all focus on teaching and modeling kindness throughout the year, but this time of year it seems even more appropriate. So, here's my freebie! Use these kindness cards during morning meetings, as brain breaks, or to go along with the character education program you use. 

Happy holidays!

  2. HI Erica,
    Welcome to the Currently Link Up family!! It's my favorite link up to do! I too have lots to do in the next 3 weeks. I can't believe 1 whole semester of school will be done for my kindergarteners. Thank you for the great kindness's perfect to use during this time of the year as well as throughout the year. I want to wish you the merriest of holidays this season. Enjoy your trip....I am jealous.

  3. I have been thankful that the holiday craziness hasn't seemed to hit my kiddos yet either - probably next week. Your trip sounds exciting! I have never even been out of the country!
