November Currently and a *FREEBIE!*

Can you believe it is November already?!? This school year is already FLYING by! I'm ready though.. bring on the cold weather, comfy clothes, hot chocolate, and snuggling by the fire! (Ask me the same thing in February and I will be sick of it!) But for now, I'm so excited that it is Currently November time over at Farley's blog!

Listening: Of course I am still at school working because it was a CRAZY Monday, as I'm sure you can all relate! I get so much more done when it's an empy school though, I have to say! We had "practice" for our Veteran's Day assembly at the end of the day today.. and what was supposed to take 15 minutes, took an hour and fifteen, so... bye bye planning period and hello after school time! (By the way, it was not myself or my teaching partner that made it last so long... ugh!)

Loving: I absolutely love warm drinks on a cool Fall/Winter day! Even though I don't love coffe, I love fru fru drinks from Starbucks... and my biggest weakness is mixing all the cappuccino flavors at Circle K... oops!

Thinking: I cannot wait to get home to the hubs. He's actually picking me up from school today since I decided to walk this morning! Curling up on the couch will be wonderful after a hectic day <3

Wanting: I cannot wait for family get togethers and turkey and mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving. The holidays are one of my favorite times of the year. Hubby and I both have big families and it is so great to see everyone so much this time of year.

Needing: Lesson plans, lesson plans, lesson plans.. ya'll know the drill! Thanks to meetings this morning and the long rehearsal... here I am still finishing them up for the week! Almost done though... *siiiigh

Music: Country music soothes my soul. In fact, I'm playing a little Tim McGraw right now. My students love listening to country during writers workshop or other silent work time. It relaxes me and it's easy to find school appropriate songs. I love it!

Thanks for stopping in and reading my currently! One of the things I've been working on here is poetry paper for my students to start writing their final copies of their Veteran's Day poems tomorrow. We are talking about Haiku's, Cinquain, and Rhyming poems. Click on the picture of the preview to download your free copy!

I hope you enjoy this freebie! And check back soon because I will be posting a great Thanksgiving spelling unit and Pilgrim unit!

Have a wonderful night blogger world.

  4. Hi! Thank you for the poetry papers freebie! I am so with you on loving Thanksgiving and nice warm drinks! I now bring my work home since I have two little ones and work when they go to bed. It seems a lot more relaxing on my couch with some TV noise in the background:)
