October Currently

It's hard for me to believe that we've already been it school for a month, as it has really flown by, but I am super glad that fall has arrived as I really do love all things fall and October is one of my favorite months.

So without further ado, it's time for me to link up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the October Currently!

Listening: It's Saturday! I'm ready to go out and about and we woke up to rain! My fingers are crossed that it will clear out soon so I can get out of the house for awhile and do something outside! I have been stuck inside for two weekends with this cold and I need to get out and enjoy this Saturday!

Loving: Saturday is really the only day that I don't do some type of planning, grading, or other teacher-related activity. Don't get me wrong, I could be doing work, but I'm definitely not going to! All teachers deserve a whole day each week to themselves and I'm taking it!

Thinking: I'd be lying if I said I wasn't thinking of all of those things that I could be doing, especially since progress reports are just around the corner, but I'm pushing those thoughts aside, or at least I'm giving it a really good effort. Isn't it terrible that on my one day to myself I still find a way to feel guilty for not doing something teaching-related? I say a big boooooooo to that! Wish I could totally shut it off!

Wanting: I really want to do whatever the hubby wants to do today. I have to shout him out because he's been so awesome since I went under the weather a couple of weeks ago. For example, this week, when I was at work grading until 5:30, he went to the grocery store to get all of the things I needed to make cupcakes for my students yesterday. That's just one of the many wonderful things he's done to keep me sane while I've been sick. Today, I'm leaving plans up to him because he deserves to have a day of fun after all he's done for me!

Needing: I am feeling MUCH better, but I don't think I've breathed out of my nose in two weeks. I'm still terribly congested and my nose hurts to touch. I'm ready for this cold to be completely gone. It's way too early in the school year for me to be this sick!

Treat: Since I love fall, I've placed a few fall-related items on sale in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. 

I've marked my Creating and Solving Fall Word Problems Intermediate Set down from $3.00 to $2.00

I've marked my Create Your Own Fall Story from $1.75 to $1.25.

I've marked my Create Your Own Halloween Story from $1.75 to $1.25.

These will be on sale for one week, with the sale ending next Saturday, October 11th! 

Happy Fall, everyone! Enjoy your weekend!



  1. Hooray for Fall! Booooo for colds. I take a day for myself too. Well....an evening any way but I try to make the most of it. We just have so much to do and our minds are always making a mental to do lists! Have a great weekend!

  2. You are sounding tired Rachel! I hope this cold is over and gone for you soon so you can get on with your life! Have a restful weekend!

    1. I really AM so tired! I need a day of sleep! We took it easy today though, just going out to lunch and light shopping. Then we came home and napped. Naps make me sooooo happy!

  3. My husband teaches in the upper elementary grades. I'll have to show him your story problem packs.
