October Currently

Oh my! It is finally October!  And that means it is Currently with Farley from Oh Boy Fourth Grade time too!

Yes, I am up REALLY early on a Saturday morning to work a consignment sale.  I have really gotten into those lately because I make more money on the clothes than taking them to a local kids' clothing resale shop.  I did one for my daughter's preschool and made quite a bit of money on the kids' old clothes and toys, plus their cut is a charitable donation!  It's a win-win!  Today I am working one with a friend of mine of to sell those items that didn't sell in the last sale.  All of the money I make is for new clothes for the kids.  So right now, the kids are still in bed, and I am enjoying my breakfast and coffee all alone ~ something I rarely get!

This weekend we are getting a cold front in Virginia which will bring us some cooler weather, and I can wear my fall clothes (see "wanting").

Saturday is grocery day, and I have to make my list.  It is pretty much the same every week, but I still have to make a list!

We are almost done with the PALS screening to check all students' reading ability, and I am overwhelmed!  In grades 1-6, there are 60 kids identified as not meeting the benchmark and plenty more who simply read below grade level!  In theory, I am supposed to provide interventions to them for 30 minutes a day ~ yes a day!  If I did that, I would not eat lunch or have a planning period!!  Luckily, that is only required for K-3, so I can make it work.  But it sure would be nice to have another reading specialist to help me meet the reading needs of every student in the school!!

And now for your treat!  I have reached 900 followers on Teachers Pay Teachers, and I want to celebrate!  I am having a 15% off sale through the weekend and Monday!  And there is a blog hop this weekend where I have my newest item FREE through the weekend, so snag it while you can!!

You might like to grab some of my fall or Halloween products too!

Have a wonderful weekend and October!  Happy fall y'all!
