December Currently


Hi guys!  This is my second blog post in a week.  Whoa.  

Here’s my Currently for December!  Thanks to the awesome Farley for hosting this linky party every month! 


Listening: Adele.  All of the feels.  {I’m pretty sure I don’t need to add any further explanation to this.}

Loving: My students’ reaction to our gingerbread friend from the North Pole!  I did the Elf on the Shelf thing last year {his name was Sneaky Bob}, and I’m kind of over his creepy little face.  Ha!  I have some students who don’t celebrate Christmas, so I was on the lookout for something a little bit different and wintery.  My friend told me about these cute stuffed gingerbread toys from Walmart, and they smell like gingerbread, too!  I totally love the idea of hiding a holiday visitor around the room for the kids to find, and you better believe my little gingerbread friend will be up to the same shenanigans that my elf did!  This time of year is always so much fun!  I love their sweet innocence and excitement.  And the weird, random names they always come up with for our visitors.  This year’s suggestions were: Ginger {of course}, Gingey, Con {what?}, Superman, Supergirl, Little Cute Girl, and Rose.  We voted, and it was a toss up between Gingey and Supergirl.  It was a close one.  They finally decided Gingey Supergirl was a good compromise.  I’m so glad that’s over.

Thinking: “TpT Sale!  I have 50 minutes left.  How much did I spend already?  What else can I buy before the time runs out?  Do I really need a March unit right now, it’s only December.  Who am I kidding, I love leprechauns!  Oh look, there’s another cute one for back to school…”

Wanting: More time!  I'm so excited, because I just put my first paid product on TpT this week!  I have so many ideas in my head right now, but I wish I had more time to create.  I’ve been feeling super excited and inspired about this new journey {see my last blog post!} and I can’t wait to add more products to my store!

Needing: A fancy pencil sharpener for my classroom, more glue sticks, and white construction paper.  {Teacher problems}

Real or Faux?: Faux!  Ours is super pretty when the lights are on and it smells like fake pine, too!

I hope you get a chance to link up with us this month and share your Currently!  Have a great rest of December!  Happy Holidays!

Happy Teaching!

    1. Haha! I thought my elf was ok last year, but then I took a random picture of him and I realized just how creepy he is. Never again! ;)

  5. I'm so excited about the Adele CD. I think St Nick may have gotten it for me. ;) Love your gingerbread idea. I need to start selling on TPT. I've been thinking about if for 3-4 yrs now but haven't pulled the trigger. Good luck!
