September Currently


So, today is my birthday.  I had a very special day at school, with one student not only remembering my birthday, but making brownies and bringing me a gift of books for my classroom library (oh and let's not forget the collage of my face mixed in with Beyonce's-who shares my birthday).  In addition to all that fun, two classes sang to me and countless students and teachers wished me a happy birthday.  On that note, I am already loving my new pencil sharpener.  I got the awesome new hot pink one.  It really does work!  I have never had a sharpener that was so effective.
It is also my second day of school.  To help break the ice yesterday, I had my students do a September Currently.  Then I read through them and the kids had to guess who wrote it.  It was quite fun.  I can't wait to have them try it on their blogs (which I haven't yet set up).  I thought that it was only fitting for me to get in on the action.

Because I am thinking of "plan, plan, plan(ing)," I better go do that now.  It has certainly been a busy couple of days, and I still have much to do tonight.

Link up at Oh' Boy Fourth Grade's Blog.  If this is your first time joining a "currently" you might need a tutorial (like I did).  Find a great one at Chickadee Jubilee's Blog.

    1. This week it seems that relaxing is going to need to wait until the weekend. Hopefully every week won't be this busy!

  3. Hi Dava! I found you through Currently! I love that pink sharpener! So funny that we have the same goal to read more and blog at least once a week! I also love Big Brother (it's the only reality TV I watch). Isn't Amanda crazy? :o)

    1. Haha, yes Amanda is crazy, but we kind of love her. It is fun seeing what so many teachers have in common through the Currentlys. I know I saw Zumba on a couple too.

  4. That is such a neat idea to have your kiddos do a currently!

    I've heard such great things about those pencil sharpeners. I'm not sure I can wait until I have my own classroom to try one out!

    Warmly,

    1. I already want one for my house and for multiple places in my classroom. It is crazy. I would definitely go for the three-for deal if you're going to invest.

  5. Happy Belated Birthday! Oh My Goodness! I thought I was the nerd who is obsessed with Big Brother. It is for sure a major topic of discussion!

    So glad I could find your blog through the currently linky!

    1. Glad you stopped by and thank you. We just got into Big Brother this year, and I can not believe I have been missing it for so long. I really do enjoy reality TV, and this fits the bill!
