Currently: December

I can’t believe it is already December! I am linking up with Farley's Currently.  

I thoroughly enjoyed my week off for Thanksgiving break, but it is back to the grind today.  To make my morning better, I am listening to a little Christmas music before I leave for school.  I am in love with the Pentatonix’s Christmas album.  I am always amazed by acapella groups.  I am loving that my husband and I put up our tree yesterday.  I love coming down the stairs to the twinkling lights. It’s our first Christmas together as husband and wife, so it’s a little more special than usual.  I keep thinking about all of the activities I need and want to cram into the next 15 school days.  We will be doing Holidays Around the World and preparing for our winter performance, along with teaching all the regular stuff. Even though we just had a week off for Thanksgiving, I am already looking forward to Winter Break.  I am wanting to plan a little getaway for my husband and I during that time.  Next week we have Parent-Teacher conferences, so I am needing to get prepared for those.  This month, I will be encouraging my students to show kindness to each other, at home, and around school.  A kindness elf will be arriving in our classroom today.  Each day he will bring a mission of kindness for my kids to complete.  I am really looking forward to these activities.

I hope everyone has an awesome week back.  Don’t forget to hit up the Cyber Monday (and Tuesday) Sale on Teachers Pay Teachers.  You can save 28% at most stores (including mine) by entering the code: TPTCyber.  I plan to stock up for upcoming units.


  1. I love the idea about the Kindness Mission.

    I like to do a Random Act of Kindness at least once a week during the year... and try to up it during the holiday season. This year, I am hoping to inspire my kiddos to do the same. I like the phrase "Kindness Mission" because it seems like much more of a challenge to the kids and I think it will take much easier!

    Thanks! :)

  2. Your Kindness Mission is a very nice idea! It's always a good thing to be kind, not just during the holidays, but year round. The holidays are a great reminder of that. ;) Hope you get your winter getaway squared away soon! Enjoy and happy holidays!
