Currently April

I think the fact that I have to go back to school should be the April Fool's joke!  Oh, how I despise getting up in the morning!
Listening:  I heart Jimmy Fallon and baseball....celebrating baseball, with one of my favorite movies,  while washing and folding piles upon piles of laundry. 
Loving:  Baseball is finally here!  Today was opening day, (although my Dodger's don't play til tomorrow.)  Dodger Stadium got a makeover and I need to visit LA to see it in person!  Maybe a Teeny Tiny Teacher needs to go too....
Thinking:  About a spring break redo.  I did not get through my to do list.  And this is where I camped out today...I always end up with a circle of work around me!
Wanting:  A puppy. My last dog was named Dodger.  Reeser will be the name of my new buddy.  PeeWee Reese was a player for the Brooklyn Dodgers.  He had the most to lose when they signed Jackie Robinson, and yet was the only one on the team to befriend him.  He is one of my I think Reeser would be great name for a that looks something like this-
Needing:  Relationships are the best way to support students with behavior....the dilemma comes when you have so many kids it is difficult to best cultivate those important interactions.  I have always believed this, but forgot.  Miss Night's Marbles reminded me and got my own marbles rolling!  (Side note...I have been spelling dilemma with an 'n' my whole life and apparently that is wrong!  Who knew!?)
Advice:  I started blogging because I wanted to be part of the sharing and collaborating going in the online teacher bloggy world.  Every once in a while I obsess about stats and followers, but have to remind myself why I started.  Looking back a double bonus is that blogging has become a kind of journal.  If I want to look back and see what I was doing last year, I just go to through the previous posts.  I have made some super sweet friends, who I have yet to meet face to face, and gotten lots of ideas my students have benefited from. 
Join the giant party over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade!

  6. I'm embarrassed to say that I know NOTHING about baseball. Cricket is the game here (I know nothing about that either other than it appears to be the slowest game in the world!) and football (soccer in the US) which is THE passion in our family. I know a little about football :) I love your blog - it's such a fun name :)
