Currently, Together We Are Better, & Assess Me

 Whew, it is August already!  Where has my Summer gone??  I head back next week.  When do you go back school?   It feels like Summer Break flew by.


Most of my Currentlys are self explanatory.  But I do need to comment on my "loving".  I sleep in so long this morning.  I even missed church {I feel bad about that part}!  But I could not for some reason wake up.  My kids usually have me up by 7:00.  Of course we lounge around in our pj's for a while, but this morning I slept.  And it felt AWESOME.  I told the hubs, I must have really been tired because I haven't sleep in that late for a long time.  Watch, my luck I will be up all night - ha!

For my random act of kindness, I am going to try and pay people I love and work with meaningful compliments.  I know that a kind word can always brighten someones day!

If you haven't already be sure to join in on Farley's link up {I am a day late to the party}!

Have you check in with the Tattooed Teacher for her Assess Me Party!  We are on week #2!



Be sure to join in on the fun.  It is always fun to read what other teachers like!


Now up for Angie and Ashley's #2getherwearebetter link up.  This months topic is bulletin boards.  I know I have seen some really awesome bulletin boards out there.  With Pinterest you can now find any theme and idea and just run with it.  I only have 2 boards in my room.  Here is a picture of my favorite board.

The reason why I like this board is because it more of an interactive board.  We use it keep up with our Fast Facts. The kids will add their names to the board, and as they move a level on the addition/subtraction timed test their names moves down as well.  The kids are constantly checking this board once we start our fast facts.  They are always curious to see where their name is on the board.  I also split the board in half.  The other half is used to hold our behavior chart and name cards with sticks.  

As far as decorating a board, I like to double up on boarders.  All of my boards have two layers of borders.  I even put two layers around my white board.   I added tissue flowers in my new color scheme to help accent the board!   I will have more pictures to come when I reveal my class and let me warn you I changed everything up!



I can't wait to see how everybody is using their bullentin boards.  Be sure to join in on the fun!

Also don't forget that Monday and Tuesday are the big #BTS2015 sale for TpT.  Are you following my TpT store?  Be sure you are so you can always see when new products are posted and want miss out on any of the fun!  


Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!  I {heart} comments and followers!

  1. I slept in this morning too, until about 10! I never sleep in that late; usually my dog has already woken me up. I love doing it every once in awhile though.
