Currently June 2015

It's June!! And only 4 more days left of school! Yippee!! Time to link up with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade!
As you all know, this time of year is HECTIC!!  So this is going to be brief!

Listening: Becca is SO excited about her class play tomorrow, It's Electrifying! She is the leader of the Volta Fan Club. It's a darling play all about electricity, one of our 4th grade science standards! You can read more here about fantastic teacher-friendly musicals by Bad Wolf Press that cover all our content standards!!
Loving: The countdown is on. . .finished report cards, finished cum comments (thanks to typing on labels now, I can write so much more about each student at home, then adhere the labels to the cum back at school!), and my students are teaching last week and this week! They've each signed up for a time slot to teach the class something they are good at. There've been a wide variety of lessons: from ballet, to tennis, to drawing, to baking bread, to making DIY candle holders, to tips for putting on a class play! So much fun & the kids appreciate how hard it is to plan an effective lesson! :)
Thinking: Kayla is traveling through Europe for 10 weeks this summer with her BFF. Oh, to be young again! Their first 3 weeks are with a college tour group, then they are on their own. They found ways to travel on a budget, including staying for FREE room & board in England & Poland, in exchange for speaking English to other tourists & showing them around! Reminds me of when I was in college & traveling abroad for the first time. I'm so happy she's experiencing the bigger world, although I won't quite sleep soundly until I know she's safely back in the US!
Wanting: Soooo tempting to start reading my ginormous stack of books (& loaded Kindle library!!) but I better wait until the end of the week or I won't get the rest of what I need done finished!! Along with tons of fiction & so many teacher books, I'm very excited about a new Devotional/Bible study for Christian educators:  Awakened: Change Your Mindset to Transform Your Teaching. The group Bible study begins in July.

Needing: At this time of year. . . a massage is always in need!! I have one scheduled for next week with one of my teacher besties!! Spa Day!!
Summer Lovin': My favorite: time to chill, catch up on reading, hang at the beach, scrapbook (that's the plan at least!!), and few family & hubby getaways!! Definitely needed! Happy summer, everyone!
