Found this fun Currently activity from Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade. She also has an awesome blog link-up, so I've been going a little blog crazy!

Listening... Elf has quickly become one of my favorite holiday movies. Had a VERY long day at school, so it was nice to just relax and laugh over a pizza with my awesome wife (who took her whole night designing my new blog layout last night!)

Loving... Today's lesson was "making 10 to add 8." A large chunk of my kids really gets it. There's still a few that have no clue. Imagine my panic prepping for the lesson while knowing that the principal was coming to observe. First off, our principal is AWESOME. Super low key, but an observation is an observation, so totally calm panicking was I. Somehow, all the kids got it. I had them up and moving the whole time, and on his way out the door he said "That was absolutely fantastic." I almost collapsed and cried.

Thinking... I totally bit off more than I could chew for my Christmas door design... Will I EVER finish it?! Pictures soon (once I'm done!)

Wanting... I have yet to have a good cup of cocoa with mini marshmallows. Our elf on the shelf made a marshmallow hot-tub yesterday, and ever since I've been craving.

Needing... I'm terrible at grading things on time. It's almost Friday, and I haven't graded LAST Friday's spelling tests... Oops!

Random Act of Kindness... one of our AMAZING reading specialists is decorating her whole hallway as Whoville, so there's tinsel and lights and snowflakes and glitter galore. I've got a set of light up garland that I'm not using this year, so they're headed her way tomorrow morning.
