August “Currently”

Alright, this is my first time linking up with Farley for a “Currently”. I love reading them, so I gave it a shot. Here it is, and just a short post because like I say below I need to get busy on my Monday Made it! Enjoy your Sunday!

August Currently


  1. I'm in Chicago and I'm LOVING this weather too! It's finally not humid and icky- just beautiful and sunny. I also taught first grade (for 3 years) and am moving up to fourth this year. Are you super excited for the change? I can't wait! I'm your newest follower.:)

    1. Hey Kristin! Thanks for commenting! Yes, I'm really excited to move up to third this year, but I'm sure going to miss sweet little first graders, too. Enjoy the weather today! :)

  2. Hi Allison,
    I found your blog through Farley's Oh' Boy 4th Grade blog linky party. I'm working on my August currently, but wanted to share that I loved how you are wanting to have your first week and open house stuff magically done. Isn't that the truth. I brought home my teacher bag filled with TE's and folders that will help me plan and get ready for the first week back and Back to School Night. I've worked on it all summer-bit by bit. Yet, Here I am only 2 weeks left before I head back to the classroom and I'm not done yet. Although, I don't think I'd ever really be done. I love to go over and over things finding better ways to do things. hahaha Good luck on your blog and new school year.

  6. A pedicure is a fabulous idea! I have been pinning all the cute nail ideas on Pinterest and have been trying to do it on my own, but there is nothing like getting a pedicure! Great way to kick off the year!

    79 degrees, so jealous... Here in Missouri, we only know HOT!!! lol

    I love your B2S ideas. I do a lot of journaling in my classroom so composition notebooks are a must!! :)
