Happy October! I love this month. I love all things fall- scarves, boots, pumpkins, the colors of the leaves on the trees. I also love Farley's Currently's!
Listening: To last night's episode of Dancing with the Stars. It's amazing that I haven't already heard who was eliminated via Facebook or some other source.
Loving: That students are getting out of school at 11:45 all week for Parent-Teacher Conferences. Just enough time for me to be stressed, but not over-stressed.
Thinking: About the best way to help some of my students. Isn't it funny the random times that they pop into our minds? Always trying to figure out better ways to help each little kidling.
Wanting: A pumpkin spice latte. I had never had one until last week and it was pretty yummy! It fits into my fall repertoire quite nicely.
Needing: To do some stretches. I can feel my back and shoulders tensing up and need to go work it out.
Trick or Treat: Trick- Music for transitions. This isn't some new and exciting idea, that's for sure, but it's something new to me. I've never used music for transitions before, but my class this year really responds to it. This morning I forgot to use one of the transition songs, and they let me know right away! Their favorite song is our end of the day "pack it up, stack it up (chairs), line up" song- "The Final Countdown." It's a catchy 80's tune. I try to use songs that may be familiar and aren't too Dr. Jean-y. Nothing against Dr. Jean, I own the c.d.'s, but sometimes the sing-songy songs drive me bananas.
