Currently I Am...

trying to figure out what I want to do in my classroom.  I have always walked into my room with a plan but this year I've been a little undecided.  Do I want a theme?? --or not?? I think a shopping trip to Mardel's will help with this little problem.  I decided to spend a lot of my day in the classroom.  The air has not been turned on yet and it was HHHOOT! My sweet family was all busy, so no GUILTY feelings as I spent most of my day in my classroom.  
During my 3 hours at the school I was able to put my mailboxes together and hang the small scrap sheets to display work.  Ummm.....that's not much.  Maybe putting your classroom together should be an Olympic event and then I might move a little faster.  ;)
As I went through my tubs, I came across two sweet gifts from past students that I have the need to share.

Isn't this precious??  Yes, it's my name!!  The parent that made this for me also works at my school, so she was able to sneak these pics of my class.  I just treasure this. 

Then I came across this poem.  A student from last year and his family sat down and wrote this precious poem.  It makes me smile.

Can you tell why I didn't get much done today??  Yea, I easily get sidetracked.  Not good.  Focus! Focus! Focus!

My post tonight was originally started because I wanted to link up with Farley to be apart of the August currently......but I got a little sidetracked. 

So, August Currently.....I am 

OH, and I NEED to add printer ink to my back to school must haves.  Geez!-I'm wearing the printer out.  :/

I better hurry and publish this or I'm going to break a blog rule and end up posting twice tomorrow.  

Good night, sweet friends!!
