{CURRENTLY} and yes, I'm still in school! I the only teacher who isn't out for the summer?!?!?!  I know I'm not, but reading all of these "I'm out for the summer!!!" posts has me bummed :(

BUT.....I will march on.  It's only one more week and I can do this......yes, I can.....yes, I can......yes, I can!

With grades already submitted and posted, and textbooks being gathered up around the school......the kiddos are VERY aware that "school" as they know it, is over.  We, therefore, have become glorified daycare workers.  This last week should be really, REALLY, fun :)

I really do have some pretty fun stuff ready for them for this last week.  The blogosphere has been bumpin' with lots of "end of year" goodies and I have stocked up!  Here are a few of the things we'll be doing in room 14:
This awesome {freebie} is from Stephanie over at 3rd Grade Thoughts.  It's such a positive way to wrap up the year.  You can read all about how to use it (and download it) in her blog post here!
This fantastic find is from Christi over at Ms. Fultz's Corner.  My class is going to make a book of the "ABC's" of our class for the next group that comes up!  I can't wait to hear what my kiddos have to say.  I'm sure it's going to be hysterical!
This memory book is wonderful!!!!  Natalie from What the Teacher Wants is so creative!  It's perfect for the upper grades and I know my kiddos are gonna love it!  Go on.....go get yourself know you want to.  Oh,'re probably already out for the summer.  {I'm not bitter.  Really.  I'm not.}  Go grab one for next year ;)

And now....what I've been waiting all month long for......CURRENTLY with the fabulous Farley.  Have I mentioned that I think that Farley and I are soul mates?  I've never actually met her, but I'm convinced we were cut from the same cloth.  Truly. 

Moving on....
If you don't link up with this {CURRENTLY} linky every totally should!  It's a great way to get to know more bloggers and more about the bloggers you already follow!  It's a down-right-blog-lovin'-good-time!  So link up!
Alright, peeps.....I'm off to finish my laundry because I STILL HAVE WORK TOMORROW! 
I think I can.....I think I can......I think I can.....
Keep livin' the dream,


  1. If it makes you feel any better, I have 3 more weeks of school.. and the kids are already acting like school's over. It's going to be a rough 3 weeks..

    I just started my first summer session of grad school. What are you going to grad school for? I am doing Educational Technology. So far it's interesting, but a lot of work! I'm looking forward to school being over so I can just worry about grad school and not lessons plans and everything else.

    Love your blog design! Very cute =)

    1. 3 weeks!!!! Oh, you poor girl......I'm gonna stop griping now :)

      I'm going for Education Administration. It's been interesting, but like you said, a ton of work. I have to take school law this summer and it does not look good. The book is about 4 bibles thick. Should be intesting ;)

      And thank you!

  2. I found you through Currently and am now your newest follower! I also teach third grade and love following other third grade blogs to get and share ideas! Thanks for sharing your last week of school ideas, put them on my list for next year. Good luck with your last week!
