Today I'm checking in with Farley at Oh Boy Fourth Grade and Holly at Fourth Grade Flipper for their linky parties. Who doesn't love a good party???
Listening: I love being able to spend mornings with my good friends Robin, George, Ginger and Lara. But I do miss Sam and now I heard Josh is leaving. I fear change.
Loving: Our Puggle, Rosie, can sleep all.day.long. She makes the cutest snoring sounds. Maybe she should try sleeping more at night. I'm just sayin'.
Thinking: So much to do, so little time.
Wanting: Sometimes, I am my own worst enemy when it comes to my writing. I love to write, but it is often the first thing knocked off my to-do list when time runs short. (Of course, it would help if I could stay awake past 7:30 at night...)
Needing: I'm good with what I have -- A healthy family, a warm home, and food to eat.
Hours: I am usually at school by 7:15, but I am out the door at 3:45. I'm an early bird. As for the last day? We can thank Mother Nature for five snow days that pushed us into the middle of June. Ugh...
Now for Tried it Tuesday with Holly. Today's Tried-It has nothing to do with teaching, but it might make your life easier.
I'll admit it...I am a lover of all things sparkly and colorful. I'm like a kid at a candy shop when I walk into our local Charming Charlie's. I used to store all of my necklaces in a plastic shoe bin. The problem? They got tangled and I could never find what I needed. I got this brilliant idea from my mom. (Apparently, jewelry addiction is an inherited trait...)
You just hang a wire shelf the long way on the wall and use S-hooks where ever you want. Brilliant! (Thanks, mom!)
Easy peasy organization!
I'm looking forward to checking out what everyone else has tried lately. I love that us teachers are so willing to help each other work smarter, not harder!
Have a great Tuesday!
