March? Say it ain't soooooooo Farley

I'm supposed to be grading papers and Led Zepplin is blasting in the background. Why grade when you can blog right? #unproductiveproductivity

I am LOVE LOVE LOVING my new border I purchased today. I plan to redo my classroom over Spring Break. I just need a CHANGE.  New classroom decor, new blog decor. We've got some designing to do.

I'm thinking a lot about my next adventure. I have two plans. Plan A is creative. Plan B is Academic. Plan C is become a beach bum. Plan C is looking good...

I want a snow day dang it. Every time I see a teacher post how much they are getting done on their snow day I cry green tears of envy.

I need to order my Bee Bots and iPad minis! I received a big fat technology grant from my school district, and I am ready to shop til I drop.  Bee Bots are robots geared towards K-1 programming and curriculum. It has a corresponding app that can be used on the iPad minis to include more kids in the enrichment program I hope to implement. I want to bring Hour of Code to my campus, and I feel this is a great way to start!

Spring Break plans are to GET STUFF DONE.  I know my mom wants to have some fun, but we have yet to schedule anything. Suggestions?

What are you up to Currently? Drop by Oh Boy Fourth Grade and share!


  1. LOVE YOU!!! I need a pic of this new border you are raving about!!!

    1. I'll IG tomorrow. The hallway was too dark tonight to snap a pic.

  2. I am super jealous of your iPad minis! That's a fantastic opportunity. I hope it works out well!

    Don't be too jealous of snow days- you may get more than you hoped for. In mid January we had none, and then suddenly we got over 100 inches of snow in 30 days. Blizzard after blizzard... we will be in school until June 26 at this point to make up the days. :(

    Caffeine and Lesson Plans

    1. Hmmm you are right. Having this crew 20 extra days would be a nightmare. ;) However, I did have 10 days for hurricane IKE and the state excused them!!! You need that luck :)

  3. We haven't had snow days here either. We had a 2 hour delay and cancelled events on a Saturday and that's it. I feel your pain.

    1. Ooo did you go in early on the delay day? I would have to debate between going in early and enjoying a quiet workspace or going to Starbucks and easing into the day! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I didn't peg you for a Led Zeppelin fan. I like Plan C. May I join you?

  5. I'm interested in your bee bots. I'm investigating creating a makerspace in my school, and those robots sound like they might be perfect!
    Don't be jealous of snow days - we are in school until June 19 now... and we expect more snow this week:-(
    Technology Timeout

  6. My students really want a snow day too! Doesn't look like it's in the cards this year. Was the grant something you applied for? One thing we are really lacking is technology!
