August Currently, Back to School...

I appreciate the "moment of silence" from Farley's "Currently" post for those of us that have returned to school after a short summer! Thanks, Farley!

Now, for AUGUST! What??? For the first time, I waited until the last minute to go to my classroom to set up---day before workshop! Not a smart move! The last three days have been so long. I can't believe how exhausting it is---Brain Overload!!

Now, for the August Currently....
oh boy fourth grade innovative connections back to school

Here is the Book that is the #1 B2S must have---I love this book! I linked the picture to a site for you to read more about it! It's our "book study" for professional development!

And, I want to create a toolbox just like the ones I've been seeing, such as Stephanie's at Teaching in Room 6! In fact, check it out on her Currently post!

So, what are your Back to School MUST HAVES?? I'd love to know! 


  1. Hi Anne Marie! Making one of those Toolboxes is on my to-do list as well. And I agree about the heat - we heat 100 today in Central New York. Yuck. :-(

  2. I am with you on the heat is really hot!! And thanks for the shout out on the toolbox. I am loving how I don't need a desk now. It is saving me so much space!

  3. I made a teacher toolbox this summer, and I LOVE it! Can't wait to fill it up. I found your blog through the linky. I love reading everyone's currentlies!


    I Teach. What's Your Super Power?

    1. Great, Megan! Thanks for writing! I love reading all of them too! Entertaining!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit. I want a toolbox too, but I don't have any room for one so I won't be making one. My supplies will have to stay in my cabinets.
