Currently November 2015

November you are HERE! For some reason the first thing that comes to my mind is it is time to renew my vehicle registration.  How festive.

I'm linking up with my friend Farley to share my Currently status.


I'm LISTENING to my favorite podcast, and they are talking about taking chances with love. The story is great! One person shared how she more or less made a decision to fly to the UK because she was convinced it was her real-life Rom Com moment. Oh what a funny world we live it.  My weekend has been one big Rom Com movie moment, if you are the character who stays home alone and does laundry and doesn't wash their hair. Oh wait, this is getting weird.  On to LOVING!

I am LOVING my new OSMO iPad toy. I don't know how to explain it exactly, but it has a mirror extension piece for your iPad camera and it can see the letter or number tiles placed below which interacts with the app. I shared this photo on Instagram @notjaneedu because I love how vivid the images are with each word. My teacher friend in Houston shared you can even create your own word lists! THIS has me excited, because as you can see, the word FARM tripped up my sweet little learners. Oh dear. I have my work cut out for me. 



I'm THINKING about a new project I have sat on for months. I had a dream about it last night, and I don't know about you but my dreams are usually vivid so this kicked my motivation into high gear. All that to say, if you have a goal you've placed on the backburner for a few months due to the whole back-to-school nonsense, it's time to bring it out and stare at it for awhile! 

I'm WANTING to run now that it isn't 900 degrees.  My old running buddies are long gone- anyone up for a turtle-paced jog?

I NEED to clean because COMPANY IS COMING. That company would be the sister I never had- Sandy from ELA Everyday!!!! We are going to the Region 20 Tech Field Day here at Fort Sam Houston ISD on November 7th! You should check it out! 

I think my friend Farley meant for us to share a yummy on the last box, and I too love Cornbread Stuffing. Now I want to FFWD to Thanksgiving break so I can go to my parents and proceed to eat without stopping for four days. 

I am THANKFUL for each of you who take time to read and share with other teachers. Have a lovely day!

  1. I love listening to This American Life as well. I got into podcasts last year when Serial was popular, and have gone out to check out other ones as well.

    1. YES! I can't wait for Season 2 of Serial. I wonder what it will be about. I am also hooked on Mystery Show, and catching up on all of Terri Gross' Fresh Air Interviews. Angela Watson has a great show for teachers called Truth for Teachers.

  3. Dream big! That is how I got my current STEM Lab job and it is heavenly! Without a principal that came up with the idea in the first place and my own determination to make it awesome it would have never happened!

  5. That OSMO toy sounds great! So sorry that your 'mini dream' got shot down, that's not nice! Concentrate on your main dream, you can achieve it for sure :)

    1. I am really excited about the OSMO. I want to buy the number tiles as well so I can use it with both subjects. Thank you for the encouragement!

  6. Which TAL were you listening to? I didn't listen this week yet. Ira is the reason I always donate to the KERA drive each year. He gets me. He knows I look forward to their quirky stories each week. I usually have to listen to them online though as I am never in the car when it comes on here. Did you listen to the Serial podcast or The Moth? They are also awesome ones.
    If I lived near ya I'd jog with you. Do you guys have an Camp Gladiator camps out y'alls way? They are all over the place up here and a friend and I have been doing it. I love it because it's literally a different workout each time you go...no time to get bored with routine. And, I am held accountable for going which is the part I need the most!!
    Well, just had to stop by and read your Currently! Have a fantabulous November!

    1. I believe the episode is called The Heart What it Wants. It is so good. One of my all-time favorites! I don't know if I could do Camp Gladiator because I have to leave so early to get to work on time (6:15) but boot camps are fun!

  9. love love love, This American Life. I love all things NPR. This American Life, The Moth Radio Hour, Snap Judgement, Radio Lab...are just a few of my favorites in addition to This American Life. I heard that show you were listening to. "You gotta do what you gotta do for love." I think that's the quote the English gent said.
