Because it is the beginning of January, it's my favorite post: Farley's Currently
Listening: How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is one of my all time favorite movies. I'm such a girly girl and love all of those girly girl movies (however, I'm learning to broaden my horizons and watch movies outside of my comfort zone)
Loving: I've spent most of my break with family and I'm perfectly content with that. I was with my mom for several days and then we came back to my house where I hosted my first large celebration. I had Christmas at my house for my mom's side of the family which was close to 40 people. I love my family!
Thinking: For the most part, I have covered all of the Reading standards. Reading is one of those things that are repeated over and over. At this point in the year, I like to begin novels. I am differentiated novels in my class. So far, I think the novels I have decided on are:
Tornado (Byars) 3rd grade level
The Forgotten Door (Key) 4th grade level
Day of the Blizzard (Moskin) 5th grade level
My Side of the Mountain (Paulsen) 6th grade level
Wanting: Oh how I want to go for a long run!! I was doing so well and running just over 3 miles at the beginning of December. Then around the second week, I got sick and it has lingered. I'm finally feeling better but now there is a ton of snow on the ground. I'm really in the mood to go for a run outside but I may have to wait until next week when the temperatures are a bit higher and hopefully the snow is melted.
Needing: I guess this explains everything. I have had a not so good attitude about school this year. As I've mentioned in previous posts, I haven't had a great year. I hate being so negative all the time about it but this is the first time in my entire teaching career that I absolutely dread going to school each day. It HAS to get better.
OLW: HAPPINESS! This goes along with my "needing" I have to be happy. Plain and Simple
