On the Weekly Grind {Tuesday Tried It}

I think things are finally getting settled in my classroom. Why do I even say that? Why? Next thing you know something will be wrong and class will be super crazy again. In my last post I was complaining about one of my classes. They are honestly wonderful kids; however, their social lives like to get the best of them in the classroom. For Holly's  Tried it Tuesday, I want to share the Happy Class Seating Chart Website with you! 

This website is amazing! I was able to set the desks up the way they are in my classroom and add my students. It allows you to move your students around and note any accommodations they might have. It helps remind me that they need to sit in the front, or they can't work with a specific person. This website provides me with the best visual of where students are sitting. This is awesome for when you have a substitute. Your sub can take attendance according to the print out of your seating chart. 
I really suggest trying it out!

On to other school news...
This Thursday is Curriculum Night. It is the night where parents come to experience the same schedule their students do. I am more nervous about this night than the first day of school. Do you have any suggestions? 

I'd like to leave you with my first school picture as a teacher!

September Currently. I am truly behind.

Wow! I am truly behind. Yesterday we had an early release day at school. Thank GOODNESS for those days. I was able to catch up quite a bit. You truly never realize how much you need to do until it starts piling up. To-Do lists have become my new best friend!

I have not skipped a Currently with Farley. I did not want to start now.

My planning period is the period for lunch. Talk about AWESOME! It is my holy hour.
I do not allow students to sit with me during lunch. This is my time to unwind and catch up on grading, or whatever. This channel on Pandora always gets my butt going. It does not let me procrastinate.
Me and the mister moved into an apartment this past weekend (Thus, the reason why I didn't complete a "Currently" in time). I am SO in love with it. Unpacking is a slow process. We are still trying to figure out where everything should go. We have extra room. Which is surprising, because we thought we were going to be living in a cramped up apartment. That is not the case.
It is our third anniversary today. We are minimal celebrators. We enjoy each other's company ALL the time, so we usually just go out for a nice dinner. Nothing too over the top. It is those little things that make me excited! Eeeee!
I am desperately wanting a mani/pedi. Sooo bad. I can't believe I live in Florida and have toes that need to be done. NOT ACCEPTABLE!
My students did not do as well on the longitude/latitude quiz, so I am trying to come up with a better way to quiz them after I reteach the content.

1. Today is my 3 year anniversary with my mister!
2. The mister and I have decided that we want to go work out BEFORE work everyday. I like the idea, really..I DO! But, FIVE IN THE MORNING?! ...I can do this...
3. UGA football is back and I couldn't be happier!!!
I can't wait to read all the other currently posts!
