Currently November

        It's November!?!  What?  This school year seems to be flying by so fast! Just last week, report card went out to parents and we are about to start the 3rd week of the 2nd quarter.  I am linking up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade to join in on the November Currently fun! 

Listening: We are flipping back and forth between the Bengals (WhoDEY!) and Browns games.  
Loving: The fall colors!  Last weekend we were out in the woods on Sunday and it was beautiful!

Thinking: Conferences start this Thursday and we have them again one night the following week.  I try to prepare a sheet for parents to take home, that gives them information about their child.  This takes a LONG time to prep.  I am about half-way done.
Wanting: Last weekend it was BEAUTIFUL!  It was in the 70's and sunny. Today I woke up to it being only about 28 degrees and frost outside!  BRRR....I am not ready for the cold weather!
Needing: If I had a three day weekend, every weekend, think of all the things that could be accomplished!!!
Reading: I am taking a Close Reading course.  I am currently reading articles about Close Reading.  I need to work on one of my online modules for the class today, as well. 


  1. Michelle,

    Have you checked out Nancy Steineke? She has great resources to get students engaged in close reading non-fiction. Here is a link to some of her books. I went to a PD last week when she was a guest speaker and she shared ways to collaboratively close read/annotating.

  2. I discovered your blog through the Currently link up! It's so adorable :) I'm excited to see what you post about Close Reading. It's a huge focus at our school right now and I'm always looking for ideas and resources. Those pictures are beautiful! I might need to go to Ohio one day. Good luck with conferences!


  3. Your pictures are gorgeous!! Good luck with your conferences. I just finished mine. :)

  4. We still have a bit before conferences begin. Do you have a specific sheet that you use? Are you willing to share? I'm always looking for a good format of organizing the information I want to share with parents! Happy November!
