Currently August! (and don't forget about the Facebook Giveaway!) - Ideas By Jivey: For the Classroom

Currently August! (and don't forget about the Facebook Giveaway!)

It's that time already...... AUGUST! Which also means a new Currently!

Here we go........

Listening: I am actually sitting in my living room with NO TV, NO music, no NOTHING. Just sitting in peace (and blogging, tee hee) - so I can hear the wall clock ticking, and as I typed it, it made me laugh because I have SOOOO many things I should be doing (instead of blogging) and time is just a-ticking!

Loving: Oh my gosh. I got this bad boy:
after buying the Classroom Decor MEGA PACK because I wanted to make EVERYTHING with these adorable patterns! It looks so good with my beach theme because of the bright colors! LOOOOVE!

Thinking: Yeah, I decided to hold a Facebook Giveaway..... surely you've heard about it. :)
There is a DIFFERENT giveaway every morning starting around 7 AM and running til midnight- you must enter daily, as each prize is different!! Head over and enter today, and come back every day through next Wednesday!! :)
(and pray for my sanity, as this is also the first week back for teachers, and kiddos come back next Wed!)

Wanting: my to-do list is a mile-long (and here I sit, blogging).

Needing: my mind absolutely races at night with all the things I need to get done this week. I'm talking SERIOUS overdrive! I just want to sleep the whole night through!

B2S Must-Haves: I am loving my teacher planner already!!! And post-its are a MUST for me and the kiddos.... and my class library is ginormous, but I still constantly find new books to add. :) You should, too!

Thanks for stopping by today! I am so mad-- I worked super hard to get my room ready for "Meet Your Teacher Day" tomorrow and I FORGOT TO TAKE PICTURES before I walked out! What?!?!?! Can you tell my mind is gone?! :-P So, maybe tomorrow. :)


  1. I am using Dots on Turquoise this year also along with the Bojo Birds which I have fallen in love with! I have a very, very LONG "to do" list and I want it done like yesterday! Race you to the finish line and see which one of us gets it all done first!

  2. A good supply of post its is definitely essential! And I love that paper set too!

  3. I can't believe your Meet the Teacher Day is tomorrow. That's crazy! Ours isn't until the 22nd.

    I'm off to be your facebook friend and enter your giveaway!
    Happy Back to School!

    Yeehaw! Teaching in Texas

  4. I'm still weeks out from my Meet the Teacher day and I'm already stressing. Ha. I think it's because I was just told that the school is closed for waxing until August 5th, and I'm in a workshop that whole week...

    Best of luck with your to-do list! I know how blogging/reading blogs can suck you in! I should be doing something from my list right now too!

  6. I'm a total sucker for buying EVERY single book that gets printed before the Media Center orders it. I have no more room for books. It's either the kids or the books...I guess the kids will have to find somewhere else to go. Haha

  7. Maybe you should have written yourself a reminder on a post-it! :)Post-i ts are one of my essentials too. Have a great Meet the Teacher night!

  8. I got that dots on turq. as well:) I am doing a Mermaid theme, but it looks like I'll be using DOT too b/c I can't get my Chevron:(((


  9. Blogging is a wonderful distractor when the to-do list is just too overwhelming! It makes us feel like we accomplished "something" AND we get to talk with other teachers! :) I love those papers from Where the Wild Things Learn!!

  10. I am hearing that clock ticking too! How did July go by so fast? I love the colors of the decor pack that you bought!

  11. That decor pack is REALLY cute! I want to do my room in these colors, but I have so many primary color items to replace...hope your first week back went well!
