October Currently and Friend's Giveaway

Happy October!  It's time for another Currently from Oh' Boy Fourth Grade!  Go link up with your own Currently!  :)

I went to a Language Arts Common Core workshop today and I really enjoyed it.  The speaker was great.  I left with a lot of information and one thing I know for sure is that I need more time in the day to create new Common Core assessments ready to use with my kiddos!!  

I love The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything.  I always use it as a Reader's Theater with my kiddos.  They love doing the motions with me as we read the book and then performing for other classes.  

My hubby wears *size 15* shoes so I always bring in a pair for the kiddo who plays the shoes to wear.  They love it!!  It's so funny to see my first graders wearing size 15 shoes!  :)

Make sure you stop by my friend Brandi's blog and enter her giveaway!  I'm donating my October/Halloween Activity Pack and there's lots of other goodies plus a TpT gift card to win!!

I'm off to go work on this Common Core stuff.  Going to be a crazy busy (but hopefully full of growth and 'stretching') year!  :)

You were in front of me for Currently. I love The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything! Such a great book. And jealous that you're experiencing fall weather. Phoenix doesn't really have changing seasons :/

Lol, I was just saying to my husband that I needed more time in the day!! This time of year is sososo crazy!!

Don't you just love your iPad?! I am obsessed with mine- I use it all of the time :) There are some great apps for school, but I'm watching Netflix on it now ;)

Happy Fall!
