March Currently...and a Tutorial Hopefully

Not sure how it happened, but March is here already.  Time for another Currently and I attempted to make a tutorial...if it works for is your lucky day:-)  Picture is at end of post.
Listening:  To the Pitch Perfect soundtrack.  No matter how crazy the day it, those songs make me smile!

Loving:  I was at a district training and we were introduced to this book.  Great inspiration for incorporating writing into science and support kids while doing it.  The book has video clips also.
Thinking:  I stumbled upon a tumblr dedicated to Anne and Gilbert....Love them.  Pretty sure spring break will include an Anne of Green Gables marathon.

Wanting:  I can not stand wearing real shoes all day, but wearing flip flops during the very rainy season is just silly!  Bring on the sunshine:-)

Needing:  Love these girls and a new volleyball season is fast approaching. Last year the net was questionable....I need to go set it up and make sure it is ready for practice.

Like/Hate/Love: Laughter-no explanation needed.  In my classroom, I am always singing at my kids and trying to them laughing...stress relief for all.
Loud-not a fan of the noise decibel regularly vibrating in my classroom.
Literature-LOVE finding great books and getting them into the hands of my readers!

Here is a tutorial to try out--
Check in on Farley and see what everyone else is up to this month.

Happy Friday,


  1. Seems like I'm reading lots of the same things from people...we all want sandals and warmth!
    Funny you have laughter and sis and I are doing a meaningful tattoo together when she comes back to IL.... I'm writing "laugh loud" for her and she's writing it for me and I'm inking it permanently on my skin...We laugh and very loudly when we're together. AND love Pitch daughter just did the "cup song" in the talent show...I was soooo impressed with her singing!
    I'm your newest follower!

  2. I can't wait for warm weather...but it's not looking likely anytime soon here in New England...hopefully soon!
