Back to School! Currently and More...

Whoa! I have not blogged since March...

A lot has been going on since then, summer break (where did that go?...too short...) and now Back-to-School. I am teaching 2nd grade again in Northern Virginia. I used to loop, 1st to 2nd and back again, but this year my team has a changed a bit and we have stayed in 2nd grade. 

Today was the first day of school...and crazy enough, I did almost everything on my plans AND all my kiddos got on the right bus, home, safe and sound. MRS.OLES-1, 2015-16 far!

Here is a peek at my room set-up this year...

And here is my 1st GRADER! O.M.G. She is getting too grown up! I love that she attends my school and that I can be as much of a part of her education as possible. We started reading Junie B. Jones, Toothless Wonder last night and she is in LOVE with Junie! 

Here are my first week Visual Plans sharing with you through Mrs. Wills Peek at My Week...

and CURRENTLY, thanks to Farley over at Oh Boy Fourth Grade

Listening- My daughter is obsessed with this tonight we sat down to watch it together. It's cute!
Loving- I have a cute new group of 2nd graders...TONS of different personalities.
Thinking- Our 2nd grade is bursting at the seems! Our principal has told us we will be getting a 6th teacher soon. It will be great for numbers, but it'll be hard to move a few kiddos.
Wanting- Just posted a new Donors Choose project for mini iPads...hoping to get it funded soon! Feeling in the mood for giving...check it out
Needing- I am doing a 30 day challenge with some friends to eat clean...I'm trying my best! 

I hope to not go another 5 months before blogging again. Hope everyone is having a great start to the school year! Here is a little FREEBIE
