Currently AND Five for Friday!

Ohhhhh y'all. I'm tired. It's FRIDAY! We finished up our MAP testing this week, and my kiddos worked so so so so so hard. I'm immensely proud, but my little heart can't take the stress! Testing, boo.

Anyway, every week I see people with their linky parties going on, so I decided to hit all of them in one fell swoop. First, it's MAY! So ... linking up with Farley for a "Currently ..." 

AND  with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday! If you follow me on Instagram {my new obsession} you might have seen many of these ... 

Currently reading Zen Shorts by John J. Muth (close reading!), Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume (read aloud!), The Missing Piece by Shel Silverstein (another close reading text!) and Grumbles from the Forest: Fairy-Tale Voices with a Twist by Jane Yolen (AWESOME for our poetry writing!) {all wonderful, beautiful fabulous books, and you KNOW I love a beautiful book} ...

These two - Mr. BBZ and our pup Cecelia - are my favorite.

We set off rockets this week as part of our forces and motion unit. The kids LOVED it {duh, so did I!}.

A happy Friday outfit that matches my classroom! Aerosole shoes ... #comfy. ;)

Got a haircut yesterday ... it was time. I don't include too many pictures of my face around here, so I figured this one was a great one to start with. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!@#)($&&$#!!! {I'm tired} #crackingmyselfup

And a BONUS .... another teacher clothes outfit! My favorite rodeo princess boots and Spring-y scarf, with a jersey pencil skirt that is, quite possibly, the closest thing I'll ever get to a real pencil skirt in an elementary classroom.

That's it for me - I'm off to bed. ;)  Don't forget to enter the MEGA giveaway of AWESOME TpT supplies!! 


  1. FOund you via Farley's Currently rule of 3... can't wait for summer, good job training for a marathon.. I hope to be lazy as possible this summer

  2. Love the boots! I've been trying to wear sandals to get in the spring mood. Funny story - last week I turned to my intern and asked her if she noticed the smartboard had been moved at all ... I had to reach up to touch the top buttons.... She nicely pointed out that I was wearing FLATS and not 3" boots! Hahahaha ~ Lisa

  3. Love your outfits!!! We definitely have a similar style. And cute foil picture :)
    I'm so sorry I missed your giveaway! I totally would have donated. Off to enter--maybe it will be my lucky week!

  4. Hahaha, Karen. I took that in the salon, I *know* my stylist was embarrassed to be seen with me. :)

    You're too sweet - I'll recruit you next time!! ;)
