June Currently

WOW! I can't believe it's JUNE already!!

I'm getting pretty jealous of all my blogger friends who are finished the school year already! We don't finish until June 28th - so still 20 days of school left... but I won't be so upset later when I'm enjoying my August off either :) 

It's time to link up with Farley for her June Currently!

MORE SNOW?!?! & Earth Day Freebies!

Can you believe it!! 

This was the snapshot I took of my front yard and driveway this morning :( YES, more snow! Seriously old man winter, I know we live in Canada but really... it's April 15th!!!! I am so tired of winter, will this snow EVER melt?!?!

Usually on Earth Day, I take my class outside to clean up the school yard and learn about taking care of the environment, but it doesn't look like this snow will be gone anytime soon {never mind by Monday!}

So, I got busy to create more centers that I can use INDOORS! I hope you can use these freebies in your classroom. I'd love to hear from you if you snag them!

Canadian Bloggers!

I was so glad when I found Patti's Canadian teacher linky over at Madly Learning via Amanda @ First Grade Garden. There are not many of us out there so it's nice to find other Canadian bloggers! I always get super jealous when I see all those blog/state meet-ups in the United States - but maybe this is our starting point! What do you think Canada?!?!

Then head to Teaching is a Gift to grab your province or territory! 
What another great linky!

I'd love you to leave a note if your a Canadian blogger!
What province/territory are you from?

April Currently!

It's APRIL! 
That means it's time to link up with Farley for this month's Currently!

Listening: Right now my favorite song is 'Daylight' by Maroon 5. {Adam Levine *gush*}

Loving: I just came back from spending 4 days in my home town. It was great to see all my family and friends over the Easter weekend. I am so thankful to have them all!

Thinking: My spring break is officially over. Every year once I return from spring break, it seems that the weeks just fly by, soon summer will be here! June 28th is our last day of school. 

Wanting: Here in Canada, we still have tons of snow! :( It's sad because at this time last year there was none!

Needing: We just renovated our basement and everything is everywhere! It's time to do some spring cleaning (and organizing)!

Advice: Keep calm... and teach on! {The summer countdown is on!)

My first CURRENTLY, and some 'Truffle Tree' Love

This is my first time {finally} linking up with Farley!

Listening: It's Sunday morning and my house is silent. Perfect for blog stalking and drinking coffee. :) 

Loving: March; is a sign that Spring is almost here and that the snow is melting.

Thinking: Of report cards, so much to do, so little time!

Wanting: Spring Break! 19 days and counting!

Needing: Family Time. I feel like I haven't seen my family in so long, it's time for a visit home.

Like: Krispy Kreme. You wouldn't believe that it was my FIRST time trying Krispy Kreme this past week. That's what happens when your from Canada and have Tim Hortons I guess ;)

Love: Kindergarten. My kindies are doing AWESOME! They have shown so much progress from the start of the year it has truly been AMAZING!

Hate: Kitchen. My kitchen that is, it's a mess, and i'm procrastinating to clean it!

For more Currently Fun, head on over and visit Farley!

Have a celebrated Dr. Suess's birthday yet? I'm SO excited to have a Suesstastic week with my kiddos. It's always such a fun time of the year. I'll be using a lot of activities from my "A Love for Truffle Trees" unit. Click on the picture below to head on over to my TPT store to take a peek!

Five for Friday!

Yahoo for Friday! I'm linking up with Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching to share 5 things about my week!

1. SIGHT WORD VIDEO - This week I took my kiddos photos with each of them holding a sight word. Then I put it into Windows Live Movie Maker to make a class sight word movie to help my kiddos with learning the sight words. They are loving it and taking ownership of "their" words!

2. Doodle Art - Today in Art class we had fun doing this fun doodle art! I forgot to take pictures of my kiddos final projects, but the inspiration came from none other than - Pinterest! It was really easy, you just doodle on a large piece of blank white paper with black sharpies using lines and shapes and then color it in using markers or pastels. Once the whole paper is covered, you cut it into 9cm x 9cm squares, and rearrange it on a large piece of construction paper. FUN! I'll see if I can remember to post my classes pics next week...

Do an art project with colors and lines, then cut it up and glue back on paper in a new arrangement.

3. A Love for Truffle Trees! - I'm just putting the final touches on my new unit to get ready for Dr. "You Know Who's" Birthday on March 2nd! I want to get it finished now so that I can send it off to be printed and laminated before we get into the crazy, hectic month of February!

4. Seal Grey - We are thisclose to being done our basement renovations! This week involved painting. 

5. GO JETS GO! - Our Winnipeg Jets kick-off their season tomorrow afternoon and I CANNOT wait :) 

I'll be back soon... I promise!
