It is March...
and you know what that means....

HOLLA like a Leprechaun!!!


and this Currently is brought to you by....

click on the button below to head on over to her blog...

I love how cute Kate's blog is...
you really need to head on over there...
she is a 2nd grade teacher from San Diego...

her newest creation is super cutesy...

There are 6 pages of activities in each book, two sorts (one simple, one advanced), and some other word finding/organizing activities.  Kate made this to be a streamlined process for the entire year of Word Study.  They are great for the whole class and for interventions later in the year.  These are super duper easy to prep (which I love!!) and they help keep the sound/spelling patterns organized for the year.  This product includes ten mini-workbooks. There are pictures to anchor the spelling patterns. The patterns are long vowels, diphthongs (laugh every time I say this word), and r-controlled vowels.

These are so cool because this is a really tough skill, but this makes it super fun! It can be used as a center, but gets the kids up and moving.  Kate is a genius and scatters the bags all around the room and lets the kiddos wander and work. It's really engaging and a great intro to teaching expository writing.  Non-Fiction and Fiction available.... Yeah!

if you are interested in any of those...
here are the links... for your easy browsing needs...

It is soooo cool how she made this art project

they are really slippers BUT
I still wear them as shoes... to school
I am cool like that...

I am having my FIRST official ta ta smash on Friday
I am beyond nervous

I am just a little nervous...
I keep telling myself to 
mantra if you will...
it is my calm down farley meditation mantra...it works...
that and shopping :)

I need ALL of March off... to SPRING CLEAN
we are officially done with my MIL house... gave the keys to a realtor TODAY
and now I have to get my house back in order...
so I don't need NO STINK-n 
one week Spring Break... I need the whole month...
SPRING is longer than a week right???
then why is it called SPRING BREAK
and if you are one of those teachers that gets 2 weeks off...
keep it to yourself!!! no bragging allowed :)
that is just not nice

you have to use ONLY 3 words 
that is IT...
and the words have to start with the first letter of your first name...
so I had to come up with words that begin with M...
WHAT? yes 
I have a first name...
it is Meghan...
so I like music... I love making my speakers bounce on the way to work...
I like all kinds of music... well maybe not polka but if I can play it loud and sing
like I am on American Idol... 
I like that... A LOT
I LOVE markers...
I have like a BAJILLION... kazzillion... 
Hi my name is meghan and I have a serious marker addiction...
my faves are sharpies BUT  I LOVE me some crayola fine tip... 
and I HATE 
that is what my life has felt like lately and well ... 
NO PITTY PARTY for me... 
I am doing my best to get over it ... work through it.... and try new things...

alrighty... that about does it... now it is your turn...

remember the rule of 3...
you need to comment and share the love on the 2 in front of your link and then come back and share some love on the one behind your link...

AND every time I post a CURRENTLY ... I am asked for directions on how to do it... 
please help me... I am soooo soooo soooo tired...
not of people asking for directions...
just I see a very comfy bed in my future...
if you have a tutorial on your blog... please write that in your link title...

  5. I so hear you on the Mayhem. Hopefully it's scooting out for you and calmer waters are ahead. Rock those shoes, girl!

    Christi =)

  6. My hugs are coming right at you for the ta-ta smash! Good that you are keeping on top of it though. Earned the pink ribbon myself, so hugs to your Mama, too!

  7. Good luck with the 'test'. I had my first a couple of years ago. Sending you good vibes:)
    I love scented markers, sharpies and color pens. I must stop buying them.

  8. I'm not home, so it's nothing cute, but I did add directions for how to participate in Currently from an iPhone. I'm not home, and even if I was my computer wouldn't turn on this morning... So I had to figure out an alternative! I couldn't miss out on participating! Although, I haven't figured out how to hyperlink through the blogger app yet...

    Thanks for the link up! Good luck with your test.

  9. I LOVE Duck Dynasty...Jack! Rule #!. :)
    I hope your appointment went well.

  10. Thank you for hosting and commenting on our Currently! Sooooo, I pulled a 4th grader and didn't read the directions clearly (I'm gonna blame it on the Friday sleepies). I did my like, love, hate with the first letter of my last name. Sigh. And, I forgot to link to you but I fixed that too. Sorry!! It's all good now! But I did like my brown-nosing for hate better than what I can do with the letter A for my first name. :O)

    Everyone loves your Currently!! You are so fun!

  11. Thank you so much for hosting! Currently makes the first of the month so much more exciting than it has ever been!! Thanks for giving us all something fun to look forward to on the first of the month (and it's been even more fantastic these last two months because they first has been on a Friday!!) It is so fun to learn more about our favorite bloggers! Enjoy your weekend!

  13. Thanks so much for hosting. Love your shoes! I love new markers - hate when I am writing on chart paper with grey marker instead of black!

    Looking From Third to Fourth

  14. Thanks for hosting! I have some black suede Minnetonka moccasins and they are amazing. The shoes are adorns. What is this Duck Dynasty show I keep hearing about? I will have to check it out. Have a great weekend and I know what you mean about a week not being nearly enough for Spring Break.

  15. Farley, I love that you host this linky every month, right on time, even when your life is as crazy as yours has been. Thanks so much!! Everyone loves it so much!

    I love Kate from Second Grade Sparkle. Every single post she does makes me laugh my pants off and I usually learn something too ;)

    Have a great weekend!

  18. Thanks for hosting this great linky party. I am shocked at how fast time flies.

  19. Good luck with your appointment on Friday. It's good that you're being proactive! I love markers too, especially the Mr. Sketch smelly markers. I usually take a big whiff before I start writing LOL!

    Thanks for hosting this linky! I love linking up every month and finding new people to follow!

    Hippo Hooray for Second Grade!

  20. Thanks for hosting this . . . makes the beginning of the month more fun! :) Hope your appointment goes well (and thinking good thoughts for you)! I can identify with the marker addiction . . . for me, it's craft and office supplies of many shapes and sizes. :)

  28. Thanks again for hosting these Currently Linkies. As a new blogger, I am totally loving them. It's so great to connect with other teachers!

    Also, I'm doing a little happy dance because I am the 217th one in the link-up, and 2/17 is my birthday. (Math nerd alert!)

    As always, love reading your posts. And thanks again for the chance to link up!

  29. Quack, Quack - Uncle Si is Awesome!!! Good Luck on first appt. Do not be too alarmed if you get called back. I am errr- "big and lumpy" (go me) so I got called back for a better baseline. Scary but better safe... Won't lie though - NOT COMFY! Kind is funny though "move your tissue" here, there, hmmm. ok...

  30. I LOVE those shoes! I need to go shoe shopping soon...spring fever is setting in:) So happy to read that you gave the keys to the realtor today. That must be such a relief! Check out my flash freebie on a natural disasters project from my recent post if you get a chance:)

  31. OMG those shoes are too cute!!! LOVE them and your blog!!


  32. Thank you so much for hosting! As always this is always fun to read and link up. I hope your appointment went well Friday. I had my first one last year...I was beyond nervous but it wasn't so bad after all.

  33. Puffy Heart your shoes too!! :)

  34. Thank you for an awesome March Currently Farley! This is the second time I've linked up with a Currently, and had the time to comment more than 2 back and already commented 1 ahead even though I'm in the 300s on the list!

    Such a great way for everyone to share their experiences :)

  35. Does anyone know why the little red x appears under my linky thing. I've only done two, but both times it has appeared and I can't figure it out!

  36. Love your linky party.... I love CURRENTLY - I actually adapted (one of my 'A' words for like, love, hate) this to do with the new teacher mentorship program we run in my district.... it is a nice warm up activity for the teachers to share / do a temperature check.... thanks!!!
