It's Currently Sunday...and November?!

I can't believe the first week of November is already over! Wow! Where has the time gone? I feel like I was just getting my room set up and organizing my library for my fifth graders. September and October have been a blur... So, it's time to link up with Farley for what's Currently going on in November.

Listening: The Piano Guys are an instrumental duo that take current songs and convert them to classical music. It's my favorite Pandora station to share with my class! I'm loving "Titanium" and "What Makes you Beautiful." You should check them out -- they're a great stress relief and their Pandora station is perfect for Writing Workshop! 

Loving &Thinking : November is always the end of the trimester for us. So grades are due. All our common assessments are given, due, and need to be graded. Plus, I just collected 54 essays that need to be in the grade book by November 15th. That's a little a lot stressful! So, I've been passing the time with instagram. I was never very faithful with it or very interested until recently! I love the photo apps and all the cool features and uploading a snapshot or two daily. A Beautiful Mess is my favorite app and although it's a paid app, definitely worth it! I've even splurged on many of the add-ons because I love the cute font and "doodles."

Wanting: Anyone else wanting someone to just come in clean, haul away/ throw away the junk, and then organize your house? For only two people we have a lot of clutter and junk! I personally just want to haul most of our "stuff" to the trash because it's taking over our small space. I  know I just need to take a deep breath, relax and think happy thoughts about it all disappearing.

Needing: Sometimes I need to get out of the house to get things graded and done. Panera is my favorite Saturday and Sunday grading spot. I can get a delicious pastry and multiple cups of coffee. And some how because I'm not worried about my house - I can grade lots of papers in a crowded restaurant! 
Yummy Pin: These roasted green beans are super yummilicious and a proven A+ side dish!  This side dish is a huge hit in our house! Green beans, mushrooms, and parmesan cheese? Yes, please! I also made them as a side dish for our Easter Family gathering and they were ALL GONE! It's fast, easy and thanks to Kalyn's Kitchen there are even step by step photo directions. This green bean medley perfect for Thanksgiving or a Tuesday night dinner.

Don't forget to link up with Farley at Oh Boy Fourth Grade to share your November musings :)


  1. Glad I'm not the only one who seems to think time is passing by too fast. I can't believe it's already Nov 10! Good luck with your grading.

  3. Time is absolutely flying! I can't believe Thanksgiving is around the corner. I would LOVE someone to come clean up the would be so amazing!

  4. Interesting how you grade...I'll have to give it a try. Well, perks of being a Kinder teacher is that there isn't a TON of grading. I do remember having a LOT more in 5th.

    The cleaner would be nice too!

  5. I also need a professional organizer! ( Read my currently!!)

    Can't the amount of paper work be overwhelming at the the end of a marking period?!?!
