Currently (April)

After reading some of my favorite teacher blogger's posts today, I am SO happy we had Spring Break on April Fool's Day. It would have been non-stop practical jokes ALL DAY LONG.

Well I am linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for my first April Currently.

Listening: I love Mythbusters. Some of the experiments that they come up with are really interesting. I am always amazed how they figure out how to make the experiments work.

Loving: On Thursday, I got my I-Pad from Donor's Choose. Perfect timing for me to play with figure out all the apps before I let my students loose on it. Any app suggestions for math and literacy activities would be a ton of help. (Preferably if they are free.)

Thinking: This year I really needed Spring Break. I am looking forward to a week of relaxation.

Wanting: I recently bought the I-font app. I have only played with it a little bit because I was getting ready for conferences. However, I am planning on making some time this week.

Needing: I have a ton of leftovers from Easter. My plan was to try to figure out a couple of different ways to use the same ingredients. (There is only so many times I can eat ham.)

Advice: Everything happens for a reason. My mom always tells me this when I am trying to wrestle with an important decision. Usually, at the time, I don't want to hear that (haha) but it is so very true.

Don't forget to head on over to Oh' Boy 4th Grade to link up with your own currently.

Happy Monday!


  1. Love your advice. That is often hard to hear but it's true!

  4. Congrats on your iPad! That is very exciting!

  5. Amen! Everything happens for a reason!! I needed that reminder today. Thanks! Congrats on your iPad! I was trying to remember some of the free apps we got last year when I was student teaching. If I remember I'll email them to you.

    1. Thank you for your help! I am still trying to figure out how I am going to input the I-pad into my classroom. I think having good educational apps is a good start.

  6. I agree! Everything happens for a reason, or at least that's what I'm constantly telling myself!
