November Currently

Hey all! I promise I'm alive. ;) Just a little busy.  We are in middle of this crazy six week period of three sets of parent teacher conferences, report cards, data meetings, Iowa and CoGat testing, IEP meetings, etc. You name has happened or will happen over the past six weeks.  

I just got in from dinner with my grandma, and am loving some quality time with my couch and the Fabulous Farley's November Currently

This weekend is so welcomed, and I'll be content to stay in my jammies all day long tomorrow.  I desperately need to clean my house, do laundry, and whip up November's math centers.  My fabulous grandma helper is coming to volunteer and Monday, so I need to be prepared! :) 

It hasn't been all work though, last weekend my hubs and I replaced my 10+ year old car last weekend.  :) It's so strange going to a brand new car in the school's parking lot, but I'm loving it though, especially not worrying about my car, it's had so many issues.  

Farley asked us about our favorite music and in the classroom and I'm so glad that she did! I love playing music in the classroom! I usually do some type of jazz music.  My kids LOVE to talk, and I've found the upbeat tempo of most jazz music keeps their hands/feet busy and they're less likely to talk.  If I play classical, they just chat, chat, chat.  I especially love the Vince Guaraldi channel on Pandora!

  9. Congrats on the new car! My Honda is 11 years old, but there is no replacing it in sight. I hope someday I will experience driving a new car to work!

    3 sets of Parent Teacher conferences? How does that work? Sounds like a nightmare! Our conferences are Monday- just one day!
