August Currently - REALLY!? ALREADY!?

WHEW! August already?! I think I've seen that sentiment on every, single "currently" that I've read so far today! I cannot believe that in 11 days, my first ever pre-planning week starts! I feel like it was just yesterday that I was walking into my first education course at Saint Leo! :) Time sure does fly when you're having fun!

Well, I know I posted super early this morning for yesterday's What I'm Lovin' Wednesday (you can check that one out {HERE})- but that doesn't count because it was for yesterday and because I started my blog a little bit after the first of July- I have been waiting ALL month for this! Today is August 1st and that means… Currently with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade! :) I love reading these on other blogs, so I hope you enjoy mine too! I spent all day today in Kagan training day #2… So if you spot something wonky on here, blame it on that ;) Here we go!
Listening:
My dog is snuggled between my legs and the back couch cushions and she is snoring so loud! HA! She is so cute when she sleeps, but man can she make some noise! :)

Loving:
I am so excited to get into my room! I have been so super stressed about it and am looking forward to some organization time and just some "think-time" (Kagan structure anyone?!? ;) ) to see how I want things to be set up!

Thinking:
My husband and I decided to declutter and sell some a ton of our junk stuff so that we can make some room! It amazes me how much stuff two people can accumulate…. Ridiculous! I hope we have a good sale, we need that money pronto! :) Let's not even get into the massive amounts of school related stuff that I REALLY need to get done! Oh goodness!!

Wanting:
I've wanted this machine for so long, which is why I'm selling my amazing Cricut! I just want to upgrade and the only way I can do it is if I can sell my Cricut.. Anyone interested!? :)

Needing:
I seriously have had the worst nightmares about my classroom… haha! I'm pretty sure its my fear of the unknown… Please tell me everyone had these before starting their first year! And if not, tell me you did anyway so I don't have MORE nightmares about being a freak ;)

B2S Must Haves:
1. Post it notes- If I were to show you my Kagan notebook and textbook, you would understand why they are so important.. I write everything on them! You can use them for reminders, notes, lessons, and the list goes on!
2. These Pentel EnerGel pens are a new find of mine and I will probably never turn back! These are my ABSOLUTE favorite pens I've ever used! Being left-handed means I need ink that won't smear, this pen is perfect! Love them!
3. I love sharpies… in every single color… As we were organizing my school supplies I had already purchased, it was VERY clear what was my favorite- 5 or more packs of Sharpies should get me through December right?! ;) That's not including the separately purchased ones :-D


Thanks for tuning guys and gals! I hope you enjoyed reading my currently and would you please link up to? That way I can read yours as well! :)

  2. Michael's told me to watch for a sale. A couple of times per year they knock $100 off the price of Cameos, plus you get a teacher discount there!

  3. Oh my goodness Lindsay...I can't tell you how excited I was when I started reading and saw you are a Saint Leo grad! I am too...:) I immediately went to your About Me section because I thought you might be from the Gainesville or Lake City campus and sure enough, you are! I graduated from the Lake City campus 10 years ago! I am about an hour from Gainesville (headed over to do some shopping with my mom in the morning). We also had a few things in common on out Currently...snoring, post-it notes, and getting into our rooms on Monday! Too funny...:) I will visit again...and feel free to stop by and visit me as well! Best of luck for your first year...you will be awesome!

    Blessings, Vicky

  6. This will be my 5th year teaching and I STILL have first day/week nightmares. I've had two just in the last month. It is fear of the unknown, but I know you'll do great. I got a Cameo for Christmas and LOVE it. Best of luck. Glad I found you through the linky!
