April Currently

I'm having a hard time in my neck of the woods even believing that it IS April!  If April showers bring May flowers, what in the world will April snow bring for us here in Central New York?  Dead flowers? I'm missing last year's balmy temperatures.  We were so spoiled!

Listening
To my husband whistle while doing dishes in the kitchen...  :-)

Loving
Being on Spring Break!  Having the day after Easter off is always fantastic and I SO needed a little time away from school.  And unlike Winter Break, I do not have contractors in my house all day, so I can stay in my jammies and relax with my daughters.....  playing lots of Sorry, Scrabble, and Go Fish.

Thinking
About the stack of persuasive essays that I should get graded, the Biography Project that I need to outline and prep, and the target lessons I have to plan for the State Tests in a couple weeks.  Hmmm...maybe I'll pull a Scarlett O'Hara and think about all that later. After all....

Wanting
WARM WEATHER!!  I just bought a pretty new bathing suit today (.....see?)
and my skirts, sandals, and capris are all calling my name from the dark depths of my closet.  So...So....SICK of snow and my ratty ripped winter coat.

Needing
To track at least 10,000 steps on my UP Jawbone today...I am always soooooo close but often stuck at 8,500. :-(

Advice
Take lots of pictures! I always read blog posts if there is something that draws my eye in....and images help make a connection with your readers.

So...what is your April Currently like? Hop over to Farley's and link up!

  5. We are also on Spring Break! YAY! I have been spending a lot of time looking over some 5th grade 'stuff,' as I am making the move from Kindergarten to 5th next school year. Still not sure about which subjects I will be teaching, as we are departmentalized (hoping for at least writing)...LOL. It will be a grand adventure, but I have a lot to learn. What advice do you have to give? Thank you in advance:)

    1. Wow, Kimberlee! That is a BIG jump from Kindergarten to 5th grade! I moved down from 6th this year myself and THAT has been tough. The only advice I have is to be patient with yourself the first year while you are learning the new procedures and curriculum. I keep getting frustrated that I don't feel like I'm as productive and "good" as I was last year, but I forget that it takes some time. And...I make sure to give myself a couple nights each week and at least one weekend a month where I DO NOT bring home any work. :-)
