Monday, Monday... & July Currently

Mondays pretty much suck.

I was so stinkin' tired alllll day today.

And it's month end....

I am an office assistant in the accounting department so that pretty much means that the next week will also suck.

*sad face*


Time to link up with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade for JULY Currently! I can't believe it's already July! I'm pretty sure I said that about June too...

Ok, so I can't pick favorites...

My all time favorite read-alouds are:
 The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

This may or may not be because they're two of my favorite books... but there really is a ton that you can do with both books as far as enrichment activities go.

Right now, my go-to professional books are Math Workstations by Debbie Diller and Classroom Instruction That Works by Robert Marzano.

Ok, I'm going to go finish unpacking from our camping trip reading Catching Fire now. :)

But not until I'm done visiting & commenting the two people who linked up before me... I'm not exactly the rule-breaking type.


  1. Classroom Instruction That Works is a go to book for me as well.Great strategies that link up to Common Core. Your site is great. I just started my own blog, please take a look, and follow if you like it.

  3. I loved reading the Tale of Despereaux to my kids-you're right so many things for them to think about.


  4. Hi Claire.I love the title of your blog, so cute! I am right smack dab in the middle of Catching Fire, I cannot stop reading, everything in my house is getting neglected because of this book, don't ya love it?! Drop by my blog when you have a chance:)

  5. I love Tale of Despereaux. It was the read aloud in my final internship of college :) It was my first "real" experience with reading aloud a chapter book with students.... they loved it :)

  6. Love I won't give up! I could listen to that song all day! I have classroom instruction that works sitting on my bookshelf at work and I don't keep all my education books on the bookshelf just the ones that I find useful!
