Most Popular 14 Posts in 2014!

       I am linking up with Jen from Teacher by the Beach to look back, reflect, and celebrate the 14 most popular posts I had in 2014.  She was right!  Looking back was a great way to see all that I had accomplished in the past year.  Too often I feel as though I don't post enough and this was a great way to realize how many posts I did write and how many people enjoyed reading these posts!  So, here they are!  Go through and take a look!  So many of them are Monday Made It posts.  Maybe they will inspire you to get a little creative before winter break is over!

                                     11. Wordless Wednesday- Back to School

                                               14.  Book Talk Tuesday

Thanks for stopping by today and throughout the year! I can't wait for what the new year will bring!

December Currently with a Freebie!

        December 1st is here!  You know what that means!?  I am linking up with Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the December Currently.

Listening:We DVR everything because I am in bed each night by 9 or 9:30 (at the latest).  So we usually catch up on shows later on. We had three weeks of Criminal Minds and we will finally be caught up after this episode.

Loving: Yesterday we cut down a Christmas tree and put up all of the decorations!  I love turning the lights off and enjoying all of the decorations and tree lights!

Thinking: We had a Professional Development day today.  After the short week last week, it was a nice way to ease into the next work week!  I could REALLY use a PD day every Monday!

Wanting: I am taking a Close Reading 101 class that is being provided by my school district.  The culminating project is due this Wednesday.  While it isn't a huge project, I sort of wish I had done it earlier or at least over the break!

Needing: I use scrap booking materials and create my own Christmas cards each year.  I am thinking that if I am going to send them out this year, I need to start making a new batch!

Giving: I thought I would give you a little freebie!  My school is really looking at the book Notice and Note, as a tool for teaching close reading.  I have created signpost posters that go along with the book.  They are ALMOST ready for my TpT site. Click HERE and you can grab a copy of the signposts.  Remember...they aren't completely finished!  I am still working on them.  There may be changes to the version that gets posted on TpT.  The graphics are from  
If you download the freebie, please come back to the blog and leave me your feedback! I would love to hear your thoughts!
Sing Post FREEBIE!

Don't forget to head back to the Oh' Boy 4th Grade and see what everyone is up to currently!
