October Currently - Saddle up for Second Grade

October Currently

Can ya'll believe its already OCTOBER??? It sure is a super busy month for me. San Antonio this weekend, best friends wedding in two weeks, homecoming parade (preparing a float), fall carnivals, Halloween parties and so, so much more. With that being said I'm linking back up with Farley from Oh Boy 4th Grade for her monthly linky!
Listening~ The Mr. and I just recently got into The Walking Dead! We're trying to catch up before the new season starts in a few days. We are on season 3 and can't stop watching!
Loving~ That its FALL! Football, Halloween, Thanksgiving, cooler weather (well not really in Texas), colorful leaves, the smell of pumpkin spice in my scentsy, fall décor! Need I say more?
Thinking~ I have a small group this year but the majority of them are behind. I've had to think out side of the box to try and get them caught up! Check back on the blog tomorrow for some things I've been doing to help my struggling ones.
Wanting~ This weekend I'm headed to San Antonio for the Women of Joy conference. Each year I always attend Women of Faith with my mom, sister in law and a big group of friends. This year due to crazy schedules, our big group couldn't all attend the same event. I'm going with my mom and best friend who is coming all the way from Lubbock (I'm pretty excited about this too since I haven't seen her since my wedding!). This is my first time to try out the Women of Joy conference. I'm pretty excited to spend the weekend praising the Lord! Here is what our schedule looks like. I'm pretty pumped that Kay from Duck Dynasty will be speaking and Chris Tomlin is preforming! Are any of my blogging buddies attending this conference?
Needing~ Since I'll be gone on Friday for the conference, I have got to get my sub tub in order! That is on my to-do list tomorrow also!
Trick of Treat~ I've blogged about this tip before. Did you know that student desks are dry erase?!?!?! Well now you do! You can read my previous post here. I have been terrible about taking pictures of our day this year. I don't know what my deal is. I quickly snapped this photo as the kids were cleaning up.
We used our desks as place value mats today! We worked on making three digit numbers and writing their number word. If you do this, expo markers work the best. It comes write off with a tissue. If you use an off brand or bic (that's what my class set it) it will come off but leaves some marks. Simply run a wipe over it and your good to go with clean desks! Plus its a big hit with the kiddos!
Head on over to Farleys blog to check out more great Currentlys!


  1. I have seen that desks and tables are dry erase. My favorite trick (from Pinterest) is that you can buy those plastic plates and they are dry erase. I use them for each student to have their own dry erase board they can use to respond in whole group. I love fun little tricks like that! I'm sure your students loved writing on their desks!

    I hope your students are good while you are gone on Friday, and you enjoy your conference!

  2. Aww I wish I could go to San Antonio this weekend. I miss my peeps! I hope you have a safe and fun trip!

  3. The dry erase tip is so very cool!!!! I also just finished The Walking Dead on Netflix and I can't wait for the new season to start :)

  4. I've been wanting to start watching The Walking Dead now that Breaking Bad and Dexter are over! I might have to get on that! :)
    Have a great time at your conference! :)
