Currently April

Hey! Happy April 1st/April Fools Day!
Luckily my kids were great today and no big pranks! I'm linking up with Oh' Boy 4th Grade for my first 'Currently'! 

Listening: I love NEEDTOBREATHE, they are on my running mix!

Loving: We are having great weather this week with the temp in the 70s everyday. Longer recess ahead!

Thinking: Currently trying to find a great price for my flight to the Philippines in June to work with Kids International Ministries!

Wanting: someone who will do my grad school work! Any takers.....

Needing: Writing is so subjective to grade. We are working with Lucy Calkins Units of Study on Opinions, any tips would be appreciated.

Last Day: May 23, only about 8 weeks left!
Hours: My kids come into my room at 7:40, when I taught in Auburn they came at 7:15! I like to get there at least 20-30 minutes early to reflect on the calm before the first grade storm!
