July Currently


Listening: This morning I was listening to music and heard the birds chirping outside.  Very peaceful and a true sign of summer! I love this time of year!  I have so many iTunes gift cards...I needed to get a few things...maybe even for the classroom!

Loving: I absolutely love Starbucks...and definitely have my favorites. However, I like just about everything.  Right now, I am loving the black tea lemonade. It is definitely refreshing on a hot summer day. I usually always get a black tea latte. Sometimes I will go for the Caramel Macchiato or the Pumpkin Spice latte, which are good too!  What is your favorite? I would love to hear...so I can try something new!

Thinking: I am thinking...that I need to pack for the 4th of July weekend. I love July 4th....the food,  people, the fireworks, and swimming at the lake.

Wanting: I really, really want our summer break to last a little bit longer! Who doesn't! This summer has been a good break so far. I have gotten a lot of things accomplished. I plan to continue to relax, work on TPT items, prepare for the new school year, clean/organize, and enjoy the summer weather.  This year students start school on August 11th, but teachers start the first week in August for meetings and such. It just seems way too early!

Needing: I need to shop! I really love shopping, especially for new clothes or decorations for my place.  I love getting new clothes for the summer and for the beginning of the school year.  I also like shopping for new workout clothes...it's definitely a motivation! I really haven't shopped too much this summer, which is surprising.  I think this will change during the month of July! ;)

All Star:  I picked one for school and one for my personal life.  I think I am creative in many ways and love to bring that out in students too!  I love creating for my classroom and TpT store too!  Planning for parties, sprucing up plans, and finding ways to make lessons more engaging are all things I like to do!  I also would say I am a good listener.  I have found that the majority of the time people just need someone to listen to them.  Everyone has a story!  I find that being a good listener builds relationships and shows that you are understanding.

Don't forget to link up with Farley for the July Currently!

*** I am also having a small giveaway, which will end on Sunday.*** 

***One more thought...I won't be going to Vegas this year and hope that I can save to go next year! I was thinking of having a linky for all you teaching friends who won't be able to go either.  If anyone is interested in collaborating with me to set something up for next week, let me know! I have a few ideas to make that week fun and inspirational for all! Let me know!

  1. The birds chirping is great! But when I walk the dog the mockingbirds have been dive bombing us- full on swooping down to attack while they squak. Truly terrifying! I'm interested in what you are thinking about for next week- email me- thelandofican@gmail.com Have fun on the 4th!

  3. I definitely want the summer to last longer. Like you said, who doesn't? And I think it's great that you can show your creative side and use it in the classroom to make great activities for your students. That's what I try to do with my teaching as well! Have a great rest of your summer!

  4. Brigid, Starbucks is my favorite place to stop as well. I always love to sip on an Iced Chai, the Pumpkin Spice is another one of my favorites. Have a wonderful time during 4th of July weekend. I am also not going to Vegas and would be interested in doing a link up. I am starting to save now so i am ready for next year! :)
