Currently April

It is time to link up with Farley for her monthly Currently!

I can't believe the Baylor women's team lost! Hating on some refs, right now, I must say. But my Tennessee Lady Vols made it through to the next round!

I just love me a three day weekend. Are you sure we can't have one every week?

We are planning 2 Saturday half-day camps for a last minute push before the STAAR reading and math tests. Anybody got some great games for fourth grade reading?

We take the writing test this week. I am skeeered. Nuff said.

I have not been motivated to finish grading. Tomorrow will be a mini-marathon before grades are due. Sigh.

When I read a blog, I don't want to just see an ad for your products. Show me pictures of it in use and tell me how you implemented it. I am much more likely to buy!

Tomorrow is April Fool's Day. I will play my standard trick on the kids by putting a giant green mark on my cheek with a marker. Then, when the kids tell me I have a mark on my face, I can just say, "Sure. April Fool's. You want me to look in a mirror. I get it." They hate it!

Get on over to Farley's and link up! Don't forget her Rule of Three!


  1. I love your April Fools mark... too funny!!! I miss you we need to get together soon!!

  2. Nice prank! I'm still trying to decide what I'm going to do for sure...

  6. I love your April 1st marker idea! I also agree with bloggers illustrating how products work in a classroom or with kids who learn at home. I am glad I found your C-U-T-E blog!

  7. I love your idea for a prank! My third graders would have gotten such a kick out of that...I'll have to try to remember that for next year! =)

  8. Fun idea to prank your kiddos. I taught 4th for a half year and their sense of humor was wayyy different that my little kinder babies. I like the advice you gave :)
    I'm your newest follower!
