Hey there again! I'm linking up with Farley for April's Currently!

A bit more detail would be nice maybe, right?

Listening: I'm trying very hard to limit my TV watching time. It's really hard! I noticed, especially on the weekends, the hubs and I turn the TV on often and mostly don't even watch the shows. It's just enough to distract us from things we actually should be doing. So today, the TV is off until tonight when Once Upon A Time comes on. It's very peaceful and relaxing.

Thinking: As I mentioned in my previous/'welcome back me' post, our district is using a reading program this year that takes a lot of the planning out of planning. We're studying main idea again next week, and the two previous times we've covered it, my kiddos have been utterly lost. I think it's time to deviate a little bit, but I'm still trying to figure out how I can and when I would have time to while still covering what I need from the program. It's tough work, but I know it's worth it! Last week's detour away from the reading program produced some pretty stellar results!

Hours and Day: I'm super lazy in the morning, so 8:10 is pretty much when I stumble through the school doors with my eyes still part way asleep. I'm lucky if I get out by 4:00, though! I probably could leave on time if I wanted to, but I prefer to get things done at school rather than take things home generally.

Your turn! Click here to link up your April Currently with Farley!


  1. I'm with you on the TV as a distraction point. I've been trying to do more lesson planning in the office or just plugging in headphones to my laptop. I've been medium successful. =) Good luck to you!

  2. Hi Kristin! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leading me to yours! Thanks for the interview advice! I also wanted to let you know that you are a no-reply blogger. If you "google" this you can figure out how to change this so that when you comment on someone's blog they can reply back through email :) Good luck teaching main idea this week! It looks like we might get a few warmer days this week....I hope!!

    Fab and Fun in 4th!
