December Currently

Hey ya'll! I hope everyone is getting into the Christmas mood! We decorated our classroom today. I usually do it all on my own, but I told the students that if they were good that I would let them help me! They loved being able to hang the Christmas ornaments on the tree! And I loved letting them!
I'll try and take and upload some pictures of our Christmas tree, fireplace, and Christmas-inspired student work that is decorating our classroom right now! I'm awful at taking pictures (if you haven't already noticed!)

I have to say though, I am thoroughly surprised at how FAST this year is going! It blows my mind that it is already December! However, it is! So you know what that means! It is time for Farley's Currently! Woohoo! I love these things! Thanks Farley for putting them together for us!

So wanna know what irks me? The fact that when I fall asleep at 7 at night, the boyfriend messes with me. But if I was to mess with him right now for being asleep at 7, he'd be upset! LOL. Does anyone else have this problem??

OKay... I don't know about you. But we have 11 days before Christmas Break begins! This is super exciting!! Of course we still have lots to cover this semester, and lots of testing to do, and lots of events coming up! So it's going to be BUSY, BUSY, BUSY! But that's kinda the way I like it! Friday we are having our Gingerbread House Construction Party! Each student will be constructing their own Gingerbread House out of a milk carton and candy! I am hoping that lots of parent volunteers show up that day. I am sure I will need all the help I can get with these things!

OMG! I am SOOOOOO behind! I usually have our Christmas tree up AND decorated THE DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING! So someone please tell me WHY it is December 5th and I still do not have my tree decorated! We went all out and got a real tree this year (we finally got it on Saturday) but that still has left me with time to decorate it! Right? When do you put up your Christmas tree? Am I the only one behind? OH! and shopping for Christmas presents??? I've barely made a dent. And after talking to the boyfriend, it is sounding like nothing else can be bought until the 14th! I don't know what I am going to do!!

Finally my RAK (RANDOM act of kindness)... I hope this counts. One of my classroom parents is pregnant. However, she is the only parent that comes in RELIGIOUSLY on Thursdays and does whatever I need her to do! She makes my copies, sharpens my pencils, passes out papers, laminates and cuts center pieces, takes down hallway displays, tutors a student.... basically ANYTHING I need her to do, she does for me! I am beyond grateful for everything she has done for me! Therefore, back a few weeks ago I decided to begin crocheting her a baby blanket.

So thats my currently for December! What's yours? Head on over to Oh' Boy 4th Grade to link up now!

(Oh and come back tomorrow. I will be posting my 300 Follower Giveaway!)


  1. I love the idea of the baby blanket! That will mean so much to your room mom!
    I can't believe Christmas vacation is coming so fast! I have 15 week reports due early next week and I am procrastinating.. which is really unlike me!
    It sounds like your students are going to have a great time in your classroom before break. Enjoy the moments!

  2. You are a brave teacher for making Ginger bread houses with Kinders! I remember doing that as a child and did it one year with a group of fourth graders. We had more broken roofs and frosting all over the place I swore I would never do it again. Hopefully you get parent volunteers to help!

  3. I love your RAK - she will LOVE it & be so appreciative! Good luck with the Gingerbread Houses - I used to make them with my firsties, but I don't have a lot of parent help anymore & I'm not sure I can handle it on my own. I'm super excited to be your newest follower & would love for you to stop by sometime! :)

  4. I too have a husband that wakes me up when I fall asleep at 7...yuck! He doesn't seem to have sympathy for the fact that I usually go to bed after him and wake up before him everyday! Men...aren't they lovely! :)
