Here we are again for Farley's Currently - a great time to get together each month and catch up with all our blogging friends! So here's what's been going on with me over at BigTime Literacy!
Listening to...Christmas Music
Okay so I haven't listened to any really until today...I've been holding out until I was ready to get down with the Christmas season and today is the day. I came home from work today with hopes of starting to get the Christmas tree up, but I really want the boyfriend to come over and decorate with me so I tried to do some Cyber Monday shopping instead. Bought one thing for a friend (and one for myself, too...bad shopper!) Anyways, all evening I've had the tunes going and it's lovely. And a candle that smells like cookies. 0 calories...winning!
|best album ever!|
Loving my bffs!They're awesome. Three of them called me today and another one texted. Love them all and can't imagine my life without them!
Thinking about Christmas break...I've been counting down the days all day - in the form of 'get-ups,' how many days I have left of benchmarking kids in our school in reading, in the form of funny memes. I have break on the brain and doing any work doesn't sound fun at all.
Wanting to put up my tree!Are you getting the drift here? All I want to do is have fun: tree, make cookies, decorate my house, go to the Christkindlemarket downtown, do Christmas craftivities, visit the Art Institute and go ice skating, go to Zoo lights, watch Elf and Home Alone....I'd be happy to start with the tree though! Crossing my fingers for tomorrow!
Needing to begin the shopping!It is my personal goal to do all my shopping online this year. I bought one thing this evening, but am hoping to do all the rest online, too. No stores, no waiting in lines, just me on my couch bathed in the pretty lights of my tree. Blissful!
Giving...comments!Well, my students will be! I have about 15 student bloggers in a club that I meet with once a week. Some of them are very active (writing almost every other day!) and others are on their blogs once a week. I really want to keep them going - commenting on one another's blogs, so this week, I'm going to have them draw three names to focus their commenting - that way we spread the love all around.
I'm also looking for other student bloggers - anyone out there have student bloggers? My kiddos are fourth and fifth graders, so close in age would be great, but really any audience I can build for them would be amazing! Please leave me a comment or shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you'd like to get our kiddos in touch via their blogs! You can find my kiddos' blogs off to the left hand side of this website!
Well, that's all for me this month. Have a fab December! I'm running my Letters Linky this coming Sunday if you'd like to link up - check it out! Easy blog to write and super fun! :-)
