Currently and a Helping Hand

I have tried to write this post twice last night and it wouldn't work.  Here is hoping the third time is the charm!

Can you believe that it is already November?  The year has flown by!  The beginning of a new month means that it is time for Farley's Currently party!  Yay!!  One of my other bloggy buddies is having linky party also.  ESOL Odyssey is hosting Teachers help Teachers.

Teachers help Teachers was started by Laurah from ESOL Odyssey to help teachers who have lost teaching materials due to the damage from Hurricane Sandy.  How can you help?  Donate products from your TpT or TN stores and donating hard teaching goods by filling out her online form HERE (you can also click on the button above to be taken to her post).  Then blog, tweet, and post on your Facebook page to get the word out.  Over 90 teachers are donating so far.  If you blog about it, link up on her post HERE.  I donated three of my products (Vocabulary in Context for the The Lightning Thief, Making 10, and Vertebrate and Invertebrate Unit).

If you are a teacher who has been affected by Hurricane Sandy, fill out this form HERE.  You can also click on the button below.


My husband bought the new Xbox game, Assassin's Creed III, so I will be hearing this in the background all weekend.  I know, we lead an exciting life. :)

Friday was a no school day, so I am in the midst of a three day weekend.  Even though I have a three day weekend, lesson plans are still on the mind.  Although on my mind is as far as it has gone, I won't write any until tomorrow.  A girl needs a few days off to read books.  This has been a really hectic year and I haven't had any time to read lately.  I miss it.  MISS IT!

I don't usually play music in my classroom, but i really need to start.  I think about it and then forget to look for something.  i will be checking out hwat every one is using in their classrooms.  My current favorite album is the soundtrack to Pitch Perfect.  Pitch Perfect is not my usual type of movie.  I am more of Die Hard kinda gal.  However, my husband really wanted to see it, so we went.  I loved it!  The soundtrack is great and is fun to listen to as I clean the house or drive to work.

Now it is your turn.  Stoy by Laurah's and help out a teacher in need.  Then go to Farley's Currently and see what everyone is up to this month.


  1. I don't normally like music-y movies. Truthfully, I sometimes ffwd through that part at home. Pitch Perfect was hilarious and I've had my eye on the soundtrack. Glad to hear you're liking it. I wish it had some of her mash-ups on it though.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  2. I love movie soundtracks! I haven't seen Pitch Perfect, but it definitely caught my eye. Maybe this is the final motivation I needed to go see it. Here's hoping you get to enjoy some reading in the near future.

  3. I loved Pitch Perfect, too! I kind of desperately wanted to sing along during the entire movie.

  4. Pitch Perfect is hilarious! Did you see Rebel Wilson on Ellen? She's crazy funny! I also thought the lead guy was super cute! Who know Anna Kendrick could sing?
