December Currently

Finally, it is December. I love December! There is so much fun to be had this month... starting with Oh' Boy 4th Grade's Currently!

Listening: The Christmas music starts the day after Thanksgiving for me. I love Mariah Carey and the classics of course. What are some other good artists? I need some new music.

Loving: I love December. Cold weather means scarves, boots, and vests. I love all 3! It also means there is a lot of fun to be had at school. We have Polar Express Day, holiday concerts, winter parties, and the Hour of Code (what’s that? check it out HERE!).

Thinking: Ok, ok.. so I survived the first day back after Thanksgiving break. We got all of last week off. So, after a week off I am already counting down the days till my next break? YES!! I loved sleeping late (ok till about 7:30), catching up on reading, cooking, relaxing, and not doing work. LOVE IT!

Wanting: How can any teacher resist the TPT Cyber Monday Sale???

Needing: Most of my Christmas shopping is done and the presents are wrapped, but there are still a few gifts I am waiting on to arrive and some I need to purchase. Anybody have good ideas for my dad?

Giving: My coworker (Jill) and I decided what we are giving our kids this year. We decided to do the same thing as last year. J We are giving each kid a dry erase board, marker, and a $1 book from Scholastic. Jill just went and got the boards from Lowes, 48 boards (12” by 8”) for $16! I will post pictures of them later this month, once I finish personalizing them. J


  1. Ha I am also currently listening to Christmas music. I love the Christmas Pop station on Songza.

  2. What a great deal for those boards! Your kids will love those books!

  3. I can't wait to see your boards! I give $1 books too. Josh Groban is pretty awesome at Christmas music, but I love the good ole Elvis Christmas music. Have a wonderful December!
