Currently...It's October!

Oh my goodness!  No way it is already October!  This means it is time to link up to
for another month of Currently!  So here goes mine...
I am SO loving my class this year!  I am loaded with gifted students this year...13 out of 28!  They are sweet as can be...and VERY eager to learn!  So eager in fact, I am a bit behind on my school system's instruction calendar...but how can you deny students' desire to gain a deeper understanding!  I am having difficulty doing so!  (Holy exclamation points Batman...can you tell me class excites me???)
I would prove to you my need for a magic desk fairy...but the magic desk fairy is so necessary that I am embarrassed and choose to be in denial instead.  Just imagine the Alps...substitute the snow for papers...and now you have a good idea of what I'm dealing with!  But with a furlough day coming up and not a lot of free time, the Alps will be quickly turning into the Himalayas in no time!
Right now in my classroom, I am reading aloud Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.  Unlike previous years, before starting Percy Jackson, we prepared by reading many greek myths before I started this read aloud.  I am loving this year how my students "get" all the references in the book.  Fabulous...you should hear the connections we are making!


  1. You usually have a para? I'm jealous! I would love to get extra help in the classroom. Well actually, I just need a secretary!!!!! LOL! I could also use a visit from the desk fairy as soon as you are done with her. ;)

  2. After you finish with that magic desk fairy can you send her my way? I am currently conducting an engineering project. How many layers of paper, etc, can you have on your desk before it falls over? Hoping it doesn't all come crashing down tomorrow!


  3. I love your cute blog. I found you through Farley's linky. I also have a class full of gifted children, but not quite the ratio that you have. I could use that desk fairy too...looks like she's going to be busy!

    Come visit me at The Lodge if you get a chance!



Thank you for leaving me a comment. I look forward to what you have to say!
