July~ Currently

I am linking up with Farley's "July Currently" linky! I thought this would be a good start because it just looked so fun! I'm new to the blogging world, and I'm very excited about it. I hope you'll welcome me with open arms.

I'm designing some jewelry for a giveaway when I have my "Grand Opening," so follow me if you're into cute free stuff!

This blog will be (mostly) featuring tips and ideas for incorporating Higher Order Thinking in the elementary classroom. 

My July Currently:
Listening: This fun song came up on my Spotify radio and I just love it! I crooned along to this jam on my morning drive to school this spring.

Loving: Fresh Avocado, um is there a limit to how many avocados a person should eat, because I'm pretty sure I'm reaching that limit...

Thinking: "Wahoo! This is my FIRST linky!" I'm so excited to unleash my blog! I'm thankful to link up for this fun idea!

Wanting: I'm going to see Daniel Tosh tomorrow evening with my sweetie and a group of friends. I'm pumped, but alas, what to wear? 

Needing: Sleep, per usual. I get the creative jitters in the evening...well, and the morning... and also the afternoon... 

Tips, Tricks, or Hints: I had a chat and review session earlier today about my blog/TPT store and I am lucky enough to have received a lot of great advice. It was suggested that I stop comparing myself to everyone else who are experienced bloggers and just get started! So, here I am, getting started!

Yay for Blogging!

A little late to the blogging game, but better late than never! The school year always seems to end in a whirlwind and it takes me a week to make sure my head is still on straight. I'm starting this blog to help teachers and parents with ideas to make education fun, authentic, and meaningful.

I'm working on quite a few projects this summer that I'm really excited about. I am interviewing several women who have "cool jobs" for a You Go Girls! unit that lets young chicas learn about cool jobs for girls (while meeting common core reading standards). 

I'm also working on Higher Order Thinking math challenges for first and second grade common core standards.

Don't worry, I'm having fun too! I'm currently visiting my family in Ohio and I've got to spend time seeing my brother do stand up comedy, trying out some summer ales, bike riding in Yellow Springs,  and kayaking with my dad.

Stay tuned for updates for new stuff I post to my store!
