Currently (Our first one!)

So I am going to attempt to link up to Farley's Currently this month. Hoping I am doing right! I love reading everyone's so much that I decided to give it a shot.  Let's see how I do and please tell me if I have done something wrong.

I chose The Lorax because I love reading it to my class around Earth Day. They love it. It is so neat to see my students turn into little Earth protectors once I finish the book.  The Continuum of Literacy Learning is a new go to book because we just started reader's workshop, using Fountas and Pinnell levels, and all that jazz this last year. Juli and I refer to this book often and I am currently spending my summer reading it cover to cover to feel more prepared for the coming year. My old go to is Teaching with Love and Logic.  I read it once a year to remind me how to handle classroom management in a loving way - which we all know can be extremely difficult at times!

I look forward to seeing more Currently posts from everyone.  Head on over to Farley's blog to link up and read the rules(hoping I followed them)!  Hope everyone is having a good summer!


  1. I want more time to get things done too. Lately the days are flying by & nothing is getting done! I can completely relate to baby proofing the house. I have a 3 year old who is getting herself into a lot of mischief lately & is into everything! :)

  2. Wow! A trip to Hawaii sounds amazing. I love to read The Lorax to my class every year too.

  3. The Lorax is one of my favorites, too! My students were especially into it this past year since the movie was about to be released. Found you through Farley's Currently linky...

  4. I love Hawaii. We just back from a cruise and I am not wanting to face reality! =)

    I love the Lorax too! Teaching with Love and Logic is a lot like Conscious Discipline which is the most amazing thing I have ever learned. It is all about building your School Family. =)

    I am happy to be your newest follower. I would love for you to hop over and visit me when you get the chance.
