Currently 5 for Fri~Linky Postie Partay

Hello, my fellow blog-o-philes!  I am just busting with happiness!  WHY?  Well, I saw my classroom for the first time yesterday.  I've started with a new district this school year and the whole Pre-K is getting brand spanking new classrooms!  I'm completely geeked out.

Now, I can't reveal a pic in this post because the moment I saw the new classrooms, my phone battery was dead. :(  However, I solemnly pledge to post a pic in my next few posts, so like me/follow me/stalk me and come back. 

Ok, so here's my latest Currently pic.  If you'd like to participate in Farley's infamous linky party click here.

Listening to my favorite boy group, well technically MEN, of all time.  Something about that harmony and I must confess, "Mama" gets me everytime!

LOVING tax free weekend here in Oklahoma!  I'm a mama that likes to save money and I raked in some deals at a local plus size consignment store called Jamie's Exclusively Plus.  I picked 4 shirts, a jacket and 3 pairs of slacks for $35!  Not only was it tax free, but the store is having a 50% off sale all weekend.  Not too shabby and my husband was THRILLED with the deals.  When I showed him the slacks, he said, "Thirty a piece?"  When I told him the price, he said, "Those pants retail for $50 each at Lane Bryant."  (He's right, btw)  I'm so happy, he understood how big of a deal this was!

Thinking about new teacher induction with my new district.  I found out that my teacher co-hort is doing some of the curriculum training and I'm thrilled.  I had a feeling she was a super star, but now I know for sure!  Also, I get to move all my boxes into my new classroom on Wednesday!  Did I tell you that I'm excited??

Wanting a maid.  It's nice to have a nice, clean, organized house...a maid sure would make my day!  If I won the lottery tomorrow (which I won't because I don't play), I would hire a maid and perhaps a professional organizer.  I would come back home each day knowing my house was pristine.  {Sigh} 

Needing to sort through the things I thought I couldn't live without...I have boxes of materials.  My daughter says that teachers make the best hoarders.  So I try to use the rule, if I haven't used it in a year that I need to gift it on. 

Back to School (B2s) I love colorful pens.  I don't anticipate grading a lot of papers, I just love colorful pens.  Also, a fresh new outfit with some new kicks just screams back to school!  If I look good, I feel good. :)

Ok,  here's my Five for Friday linky entry hosted by Doodle Bugs Teaching. 

#1.  I'm starting at a school that is Reggio Inspired.  I've always loved reggio, but the things I'm used to doing before school aren't applicable.  When I toured the building, I noticed that there weren't bulletin boards or art hanging on those bulletin boards.  Everything was made out of materials that aren't traditionally thought of as 4 year old art supplies.  So, the question is...what do I do to prepare?  I'll be figuring this out and more in the coming week.  Our meet the teacher night is August 15th.  So if you have any tips for me, please leave a comment below...

#2.  I've had a busy week, running around town, finishing up paperwork and learning how to move boxes really quickly.

#3. According to Mrs. Allen's Teaching Files, who has so humorously posted a teacher's year in gifs.  I am here...

I think we all are...Mrs. Allen says, "I'm confident and full of fresh ideas..."

#4.  Ok, this link is going to take you to the funniest blog about inservice meetings by Marvelous Teacher Musings.  Now, this isn't every class for me, but I've had them before.  Also, for the record...I HATE it when people read the powerpoint word for word!!!  I learned in college that if people can read your powerpoint and know what you were going to say~then you've failed as a presenter.  So, beware this post will have you sneezing your drink as you laugh and nod at its honest raw humor!

#5.  Laundry.  Does it ever stop?  Well, I'm off to do that now!

Happy Friday friends!

    2. {embarassed giggle} Thank you, thank you Iola! I'm one of your new followers, too.

  4. That is so cool that you have a tax free weekend. We don't have sales tax in Oregon, which I still think is really weird. I love Boys 2 Men, by the way.
