December Currently

Here is my December Currently...this time at the beginning of the month, instead of barely making it at all. Hey, maybe I am getting the hang of this bloggy thing! I am linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade. Check it out:)

A couple of notes and elaborations:
  • I love the look of this Currently. Farley, how do you do this?! They are all adorable, but this one really got me in the holiday spirit.
  • I am not a sports fan, as you can probably tell. The hubs and all of our friends are in this really intense Fantasy Football league. After one year of lackluster enthusiasm  understanding, and participation, I was not invited to play again. Oh well! I have more time to blog:)
  • Is anyone else the biggest procrastinator when it comes to shopping. I aspire to be one of those people who is completely done in July.
  • I am super excited to learn more about Marzano and our new observation tool. Our district just adopted iObservation. It is an observation tool based on Robert Marzano's research. I {heart} data, so I am stoked. It is a good thing that I trust those kiddos though. I know that last year, I would have been stressed to the max to be out for three days right before Christmas. 
  • The tree was supposed to go up today. That is a goal for this week. 
  • I can't believe my little snowflake is about to turn 2! Oh Emm Gee! She is officially a litttle girl. Baby no more. I am happy and sad. 
  • I can't wait for some RAK fun with my class. Any suggestions for things to do around school?

That turned out to be more than a couple of notes. Thanks for stopping by:)

Your Teacher Friend,


  1. Found you on Farley's Currently. I love sports, but don't get all crazy over them. I am married to the biggest fan of all sports, and a stats guy. I hate stats, but love the guy. I am now a follower.

    1. Thanks for the follow! I am not a stats either:) Too much bloggy info floating around in my brain to clog it up with stats! My husband is the ultimate sports fan; he even watches golf! Ugh!

  2. I just love online shopping!!! It's so great! Happy Holidays! I'm your newest follower.

    1. Jayme...I actually went to the mall today. Not the best experience. I think I will stick with you and online shopping!

  3. Yay!! Another Okie! We are also doing Marzano. It is a lot of new information.


    1. I really like the Marzano framework. I really enjoyed the trainging today. Design Question 1 all day is exhausting though:)

  4. lol - blue team v. green team. I think we would make good friends! haha

    And Amazon is totally the best! Do you have Amazon Prime? It' $79 a month and you get free shipping on everything fulfilled by Amazon. (Oh, and you get movies/tv shows too!)

    1. Thanks for stopping by Brie! I would love to be friends:) I need something to do while the hubs watches sports! Haha! I used to have Amazon Mom, and the shipping was free. My membership expired though. I should check out prime.

  5. Found you through Currently, and thanks for stopping by my blog. We have been gung-ho Marzano at my school for the past 3 years. I can recite him in my sleep! You'll find that you're probably already doing what's in the book anyway :)

    Hippo Hooray for Second Grade!

  6. Gotta love online shopping! It's the way to go! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm a new follower of yours now. You can read more about whole brain teaching at It's fantastic!
