May Currently

It's that time again. Time to link up to my fave link party.
It's Farley's May Currently


Listening to The Little Mermaid because my youngest is all about the ocean these days and he wants to watch this film over and over. . .
At least the music is catchy.  

I'm loving all the progress my firsties have made. I was TPRI testing this week and my littles have come so far. When I think back {and cringe} to the BOY testing and compare it to how they can read now it just BLOWS my mindhole. Even my more reluctant readers kicked butt and took names!  

I'm thinking 25 days of school left and I have to admit I'm sad this school year has flown by so quickly. I'm ready for all the wacky summer adventures I'll get to experience with my 3 babies, but this class has been so special to me. . .

I'm wanting an answer! I'm still not sure about my placement next year. I was originally hired as a second grade teacher. I went down to first because I believed it would help me be a better second grade teacher. My intention has always been to go back. SO this year I asked to loop with my class and admin said yes! {in January} and I ADORE this class. BUT and there is a really big BUTT. . . I have been in first for a couple of years now and have realized something I never thought would happen. . .I {LOVE} first grade.  I think I will be of better use in first grade. So I asked to stay {in February} and they said they'd take it under consideration. . . (toe tapping)
There still hasn't been any word on that! {SIGH}

I'm needing to get organized! Have I mentioned there's only 25 days of school left??? Yeah and really we all know those 25 days are not REAL instructional days. Oh no, there are so many productions, projects, and parties to participate in! Puh-puh-please! It's about to get cray cray and I need to get a handle on my brain and ORGANIZE my brains out because as quickly as this school year was this month is going to go in a BLINK! 

So on to my surprise! 
I just love Lyndsey. And she has no clue who I am, but thats ok. I think that she is simply the BEST blogger and TPT creator. Her thoroughness and creativity far surpasses anyone out there. I think we have a similar teaching style and would love to teach with her on my first grade team. . . BUT she's all the way up in Maryland and I'm down here in Texas. . .WOMP. WOMP. 
Check out her blog and tpt store. You won't be disappointed. Tell her I sent ya! 
Link up peeps and don't forget the rule of 3!
