It has been quite a while since I linked up with Farley’s Currently, but I love Christmas, and we happened to have gotten a snow day yesterday. So I decided I would make time
Listening : I have to admit. I think most hallmark movies are incredibly cheesy. But every Christmas I just can’t help myself. I find myself watching every Christmas Cheesy Movie ever made. And I Love. Every. Minute. Of. It. =)
Loving: Who doesn’t love Christmas? The spirit, the excitement, the love, the tradition, the great gift God gave us, the spirit in the eyes of Children! Ahh! I love, Love, Love, it all!
Thinking: I must, I must, I must bust my butt…. To be productive hopefully….As I sit on the couch watching a Hallmark Movie. Bahahaha!
Wanting: A massage…. Nuf said.
Needing : I am a flip flop girl at heart. I love them and when school comes back in session, I run and grab my Clarks and wear them without socks. Easy slip on, easy slip off, and comfy to boot. I find my self stealing the boyfriends socks when the weather gets cold. I don’t have a problem with this, but I am pretty sure he does. ;)
Favorite Christmas Tradition : After graduating High school and seeing all of my friends start to drift apart, I wanted to do something to get them to all come together. 3 years ago I decided to have a Christmas Cookie Party. I invited a few friends, we each made our favorite Christmas Cookie recipe and then swapped cookies with each other. So when we each went our separate ways, we have several kinds of cookies that we didn’t have to bake and got to talk and catch up. It has become a tradition and on Dec. 21st we will have our 3rd annual cookie party.
My other favorite tradition is driving through neighborhoods to look at all of the Christmas lighting. I love it. It is SO beautiful!
I hope you are enjoying the Christmas Season as well! =)
"As educators, we remember and honor our fallen colleagues and their students from Sandy Hook School. We honor them each day in our classrooms in which we continue their dream of teaching our children. We honor their memory with our service. Join with teachers everywhere in committing random acts of kindness to show our love for Sandy Hook."

I don’t know about you, but I love Christmas! No,
Seriously. LOVE it. I love everything about it and luckily I am allowed to
celebrate it at the school that I work at.
I’ve see the awesome visual schedules that several
teachers do. I would love to be able to do that each week, but I am lucky to
plan what I need to. I do, however, have December ALL planned out already. Yep,
you read that right. =) So exciting! I love the age students that I have right
now. It is such a great age.
Enough with my love of Christmas, when my wonderful bloggy friend said that she
was going to have a Christmas themed linky for the upcoming TPT
sale, I knew I had to take part!
I am playing these wonderful hits for you:
Oh, Management! If you are like me, classroom management is a MUST. If it is not effective and in place, you will get nowhere. I loved using classdojo over the past two years, but needed a way to make the points my students were earning more tangible. That’s why I created this packet "Class Dojo Behavior Rewards and More". It gives a variety of prize options for points and lets students keep track of their points weekly. It is a top seller in my store and it will help your kiddos with putting their best foot forward.
It’s beginning to look a lot like visual writing
This little product was a brainchild of mine, after struggling to help my students learn how to use a dictionary. “My First Visual Dictionary” allows you to decide which way you would love to introduce the words to them. All at once or certain words at a time. It is fabulous for early elementary students, special education students, and ESL students.
