August Currently {A First!}

I am so very excited to participate in Farley's Currently linkup for the first time! I've enjoyed reading other teachers' Currently posts, and finally had the courage to share one of my own!

Here she is...

Listening: Who else is a Jeopardy fan? I have to admit I'm not too good at 'regular' Jeopardy, but the kid version is totally my speed! Plus, the kiddos are so darn cute when they answer a question correctly!

Loving: A friend of mine introduce me to a new hobby that takes participants on a new adventure. Have you heard of Geocaching? If not, Google it! There are geocaches all over the world! Before this week I had never heard of it, so I was shocked to discover exactly how popular it is and how many geocaches are right under my nose! 

Here I am exploring during a day of Geocaching...

Thinking: I keep thinking about decorating my classroom, but haven't really done much yet! I am doing a pirate theme this year. If you have a pirate themed classroom, please, please share... I need motivation!

Wanting: This goes hand-in-hand with what I'm thinking about!

Needing: This week, my septic tank broke, so I haven't been able to use much water, BUT I really, really need to wash my car! It is so dirty from driving down a dirt road. 

B2S: I am transitioning from tables to desks this school year. I would LOVE to have chair pockets for my student's things! 
Also, can you believe I don't have a teacher's chair!! I need to find one.stat.
Lastly, I would love to implement Hope King's Word Work (not word study, my bad!). I used a similar word study program for 3rd grade (Beth Newingham's word study) but really don't want to put all the work I put into creating the word study lists again like I did while teaching 3rd grade! Luckily, Hope made one so that I don't have to!
