The Best Ideas in Bloggerland


Ms. Simoneaux at First Grade Fresh wowed this week by posting a slew of photos from her classroom. I love the design and creativity of her anchor charts and bulletin boards. Check out the glove! It's a hands-on tool for the five-finger story map. 





It's time for November's Currently!


Bails has been playing Mind Craft, which I think is a really pixalated version of World of Warcraft. All she does is build barns and put animals in them, though. 

How can a person not love November? I'm waiting (almost desperately) for Tuesday to come and go, for two reasons. The first goes without saying: I would like to stop getting cold calls from various politcal agencies. Come on, people. I'm voting. I always vote. I'm not changing my vote. Leave me alone. Secondly, I leave the 30's behind on Tuesday. I don't know how I feel about it, other than I thought I would be all cool about it but instead feel somewhat sad and panicky. 

My house is a disaster. I need to clean, but have been compulsively working lately.....

I really need to buckle down and finish the CCSS 2nd grade math assessments I've been working on. It's a want AND a need. 

"Mad World" is stuck in my head this morning. I think it's from reading the news and Facebook. 

Thanks to Farley for hosting Currently!!

  4. This Minecraft business is a mystery to me. You need Mary Poppins to come to your house, send her my way when you are finished with her. Going to look up Mad World. Haven't heard of that one.
