Woo hoo!  We made it to May!  It seems like just yesterday we were starting the school year.  Weird how much faster time goes by the older you get!

I’m linking up again this month with Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade for her May CURRENTLY.  If you click on the picture, you can see it much better.  Still haven’t quite figured out how to get it just right in the post.  (A summer project in the making!)

LISTENING…to our little man go through the DVD’s.  He is fascinated with the hundreds of DVD’s we have.  He loves just flipping through them and listening to the sound of the pages…and, of course, pulling them all out…

LOVING…that it is already May.  Stress season is O-V-E-R!!  Now we actually get to have some fun with our learning!  😉  Ok, so maybe we have fun during the rest of the year, but now we can destress and focus on getting prepared for next year in a more fun environment.

THINKING…What are you doing for Mother’s Day with your students?  I’m at a loss this year.  There are so many cute ideas for little ones, but I have a harder time coming up with projects for 4th graders.  Any suggestions?!?!?!

WANTING…I have so many things to do around the house…and I need to grade some papers since grades are due by the end of the day tomorrow…but I’m extremely unmotivated currently…

NEEDING…This year, our EOY procedures are changing.  Our new principal wants us to clean up and clean out.  That’s a good thing…but I have some old materials from when I taught second grade that I just can’t part with…which take up space…which means I have things in my room that I haven’t used in awhile, but still want to keep…so I have EXTRA stuff to pack up.  We are having some renovations done this summer, so we pretty much have to clean out EVERYTHING.  So. Much. Work.

SURPRISE…I have been following Paula’s blog for awhile now, and I have to say…I love it!  Even though I don’t teach younger kids, her ideas are so cute!  She has lots of products on TpT that I can recommend to my fellow 1st grade teacher friends.  And…she is an Aussie, so it’s interesting to see what’s going on over on the other side of the world!  😉  Click here to hop on over to her blog.

Be sure to visit Farley’s blog for more May CURRENTLY!!!  :)



  1. I am totally with you on loving that May is FINALLY here! Oh my, I’m so excited for summer. Except for the fact that you reminded me that I will have to pack up my room….not so fun but oh well :)

  2. Oh, I can relate to wanting to hang on to teaching materials. You never know what you will end up teaching next year.

    Howdy! I love “meeting” fellow teachers from Texas! I found you through Farley’s Currently linky. I’m from the DFW area but am currently teaching English to blind kiddos in Deajeon, South Korea. I plan on coming home in August and looking for a job. Yeah for filling out job applications!
    I need to clean my apartment too, but I don’t want to either. You’re not alone in that!

    Packing and unpacking my room is my least favorite thing about teaching! I’ve actually moved rooms the last 3 years (looping) so I have taken a LOT home. I also like finding fellow Texan blogs! :)


  5. Thanks for the shout out on your blog. This year I have moved to Year 5/6, but don’t blog about my grade so much. I love the change and the challenges. My TPT store is aimed at the younger kids though. I have a couple of products for older kids, but it is a tough market to break into. Happy May.
