December Currently

Holy cow!!!  How is it December already???

I'm linking up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for December's Currently.

Listening:  I seriously LOVE some Christmas music.  I also discovered last year that I loved Pentatonix, so I was super excited to snatch up their latest Christmas album on iTunes during the Black Friday sale! 

Loving:  Our new principal is SERIOUS about giving teachers the freedom they need to teach!  As long as I am covering the standards/pacing guide, I can use whatever to accomplish that.  Can I get an , "Amen!"?  Planning is much more exciting.

Thinking:  The only gifts I have are for my niece, nephew, and half of my class gifts...time to get busy!

Wanting:  I'm sure you know about the HUGE TPT Cyber Sale...oh my goodness is my cart bursting with teaching goodness!  I need to narrow things down a bit, but wow, there are so many amazing teachers creating amazing things!  I'm a newbie in the TPT world, but I'd love for you to check out my store.

Needing:  I moved from North Carolina to Alabama in July.  With the busyness of school starting, not to mention living only an hour away from my family (weekend trips home!), I still haven't really found a new church home yet.  I miss my sweet little NC church and have GOT to get busy about finding a new one here.

Giving:  I haven't been in this TPT/Teacher-blogger world long, but I'm so thankful for the awesome people I've met and the wonderful support of those purchasing items from my store.  HERE is a little Christmas handwriting freebie that I hope you can use in your class.

Ya'll...15 more school days until Christmas Break!  We can do this!!!


  1. Hi Ashley,
    I was so excited that your shared the music of Pentatonix! I have been looking for some new Christmas music. Maybe it will help me jump start my Christmas shopping as well!

  2. Congrats on your blog and your store! I will definitely check it out. Sounds like you have had a busy year! What are you going to be giving your students? I just started a new job and I am struggling with not being a creative gift giver this year!

    1. Thank you!! I used Scholastic bonus points to get them all a book and I "wrap" it in an elf or santa hat from the dollar tree. It has been a hit every year! Congratulations on your new job!

  3. Pentatonix is AMAZING! I love them. And whoo-hoo on the move to Alabama. I'm from Birmingham, but live down by Gulf Shores now.

    1. Awesome!! I am living in the Birmingham area and loving it...however, Gulf Shores...that must be great!
