My Currently for April

I don't think my "Currently" needs a lot of explanation this month, but here's the short of it!
Listening:  The boys got "fishing" bunnies in their baskets for Easter.  On the back, there are fish jokes.
"If fish lived on land, which country would they live in?"
Loving:  Spring Break has really got me thinking about Summer Break...can't wait!
Thinking:  Well, we ended up heading to the Springs to fish for trout.  I got skunked! 
Wanting:  I'm so not ready to go back yet!  Days off always lead to wanting just one more.
Needing:  A group of teachers (15!) from my school are participating in the Color Run.  I'd LOVE to run the whole thing...I've got to get serious!!!
Advice:  If you all are ready for Summer Break, like I am, it's really important to keep things "fresh".  This will save your sanity and keep your students engaged in learning!!!
Oh, and the punchline to the fishy joke...FINLAND!


  1. Spring Break is definitely making me ready for summer break as well!

  2. Hi Randee- I just found your blog via Farley's Currently link up. I am a new runner and just heard about the Color Run a few weeks ago through a friend who ran it in NC last month. My sister is actually thinking about running it in Dallas this month. Good luck if you end up running it. Is your Spring Break over? We started ours last Friday, so I have the rest of the week to look forward to! Even though I teach upper elementary, I love primary blogs like yours because I am always sharing them with my teacher friends who teach primary. I just became your newest follower. Head over and check out mine if you get a chance.

  5. I am loving that we have that many days left also but I am panicky too! We have SO much left to cover!

  6. I found your blog through the currently linky. I can't believe you only have 37 days left of school. I will have to count mine up! Enjoy what is left of your break!
