November Currently - my very first!

Yay! I'm excited to be doing my first currently and linking up at Farley's Oh' Boy Fourth Grade blog!!!

I keep telling everyone I can't believe it's November already. And it's true, I feel like time has been flying by, but I am so glad it's November! I love fall. I love Black Friday (oh, and Thanksgiving too) and November also means that Christmas is on the way!!!
I have been having a blast with my US History class. We have been wrapping up learning about the United States symbols, and it flowed perfectly into learning about the white house and the president, which of course flowed perfectly into discussions on voting and the election.

We've been voting in class on many various things. For example: whether to listen to Taylor Swift or Justin Bieber (sadly, Bieber won), whether to have celery or carrots for a snack, or whether to have a green or purple bookmark. I have been loving that.

And that student that I told you I wrote the Dr. Seuss social story for...well, he's the one I have the behavior meeting for on Monday. I'm so grateful for the staff I work with who are all trying hard to come up with a plan for this student with me. Don't know what I'd do without them.

And on non-school related notes, we are still looking for furniture for our living room. I'm just too cheap - thinking of all those student loans we're still paying off... And we have furniture in our family room anyway...but still it looks a little empty up there! And Hunter Hayes - in love with his voice! I could listen to "Wanted" forever. My little sister even called me when she heard it on Dancing with the Stars, to let me know "your song is on."

Hope you all enjoyed your extra hour of sleep last night!! :) Love Daylight Saving Time for that very reason!


  1. Loving Hunter Hayes music also!

  2. I, too, have listened to "Wanted" on repeat! It can't be helped... it's an awesome song!

  3. I couldn't agree more with you. Wasn't it so nice to be able to sleep an hour longer. I sometimes wish it was on a Monday. It would be so nice to be able to sleep that one hour longer before work.

  6. Hi! I'm not a special ed teacher but I feel like a lot of what you guys do pertains to what we do in the standard classroom, I've actually used a lot sped ideas and they work!

    Plus I like stalking you.

    Really. It's not a big deal.
