August Currently

Y'all, it's HOT!!! The temperatures here have been 95+ for several weeks with high humidity and there have even been a few heat advisories. My poor AC can't get it below about 76 most of the day.

I'm not looking forward to having morning bus duty and occasional recess duty at 10am! #teachersmellslikeapuppytoo

Anyway, it's August, back to school, and Currently time!

Listening: I haven't watched as much racing this season as I usually do, but there's not much else on TV right now.

Loving: If you haven't found your teacher tribe, consider it! Any time you've seen #teachertoottoot in a Periscope, that's my gang! We Google Hangout and chat about everything education and non-education. Feels so wonderful having other teachers who understand who you are and the things you go through.

Thinking: If you aren't aware, the TPT Back to School sale starts tomorrow. I wish I had more things in my store. I might make a few more glyphs in other themes. What sort of things do you look for in TPT?

Wanting: School starts Thursday for me, but kiddos don't come until the 11th. Summer has flown by!

Needing:This summer, I've really thrown my sleeping pattern off. It's not uncommon for me to stay up until 1 am and sleep until 10 or 11 am. Starting tonight, I'm going to at least be in bed by 11 pm and I'm going to force myself to get up at no later than 7 am. Wish me luck!

B2S RAK: At my school, we have a huge set of papers and forms that are given to parents at orientation. The copies are given to the teachers who then have to put them together in a packet. I took all the papers for 4th grade and put them together for my group and my coworker's so she wouldn't have to for her homeroom. I also made some labels of student names for my 3rd grade counterpart since she's going to have that homeroom.

If you didn't see my classroom tour Periscope, I'll be making a post about my classroom setup - complete with pictures - in the coming days!


  1. Wow! I can't believe the kids start coming in on the 11th. The kids don't come back until August 31st at my school, so I still have a few more weeks to soak up summer or what's left of it. You and me are in the same TpT boat girly. I wish I had more items in my store as well. Good luck with the sleep schedule! That was nice of you to make copies and things for other teachers. I'm sure they will appreciate it!

  2. Your teacher tribe sounds amazing! It always so nice to be able to chat with others! I am SO excited for the TPT sale, but I feel the same as you, I am also wishing I had more in my store! I am brand new to the blogging and TPT author world so maybe next year? ;) I will definitely be finding you on periscope to check out your classroom tour! I love seeing other teacher's rooms! Good luck on your first weeks of school! :)

    1. I'm about an hour west of Baton Rouge. It's a rural area. Periscope is so great! Something else we've started playing with is Some of my Teacher Toot Toot friends and I have started a Teacher Blab Show Saturdays at 10 CT. If you got to and scroll down, you can see the one we did yesterday!

  4. Wow, school starts soon for you!! Enjoy it! I currently live in England and our school doesn't start until the end of the month...but then again, we didn't get out until the middle of June! Enjoy your new set of kiddos!!! :)
