it is MAY
it is the bestest month in my book
or in my blog

and you know what a NEW month means...

and let me introduce you to this month's sponsor

I love JEN and she was super 
DUPER organized

 She teaches Special Ed inclusion in an urban elementary school.  She wears many hats... providing whole group support, parallel teaching, small group interventions, and much more! 

click on her button to go check her out :)

and now for Jen's top 3 :)

Here's a set of hands-on activities to learn and practice decoding CVCe words (Silent E). This packet has been updated and DOUBLED in size!

number 2

Here's an activity pack FULL of activities to reinforce the concept of place value!

number 3

Here's a practice packet with a summer splash theme! This packet has 10 math and 10 literacy pages featuring water play & summer fun graphics. This is 1 of the 3 summer packets she has in her store - this packet is for 1st graders that are on or above grade level. The material reviews skills learned throughout 1st grade. 

and now for the CURRENTLY

most of the above are self explanatory
BUT I am thinking of my bday...
it is coming up ... next Wednesday the 8th
I am going to be old
ok older... HA HA
it has 2 digits and both are odd.... AHHHHH
so you know I am not a teenager and hopefully you can tell by my cute mug
that I am not in my fifties
so that leaves the thirties
and I will just leave it at that!!!

I want a new house
and we are going to be working on our house to get it ready to put up for sale...
which leads to the garage sale...
I have a lot of stuff I need to PURGE
my garage is busting...
and my kid has too many toys!!!
E'nuff about that
I can't be the only one with SUMMERITIS...
can I???
so I am already making my SUMMER BUCKET LIST!!!
want to go to the beach with my family and stay in a little cute beachy cottage
we are going to Disney... can't wait HOLLA
and I have a pair of MISS ME JEANS...
and my bootay will fit in them before the DISNEY TRIP...
bootay fits right now... but BODay can't sit...
so I guess I should say I want to be comfy in my MISS ME JEANS...

alrighty your turn...

I am not gonna lie 
I know this CURRENTLY is a little bland
BUT I am having a learning curve with my new MAC
it took me forever and a day to try and get graphics on
I mean I can get the graphics on BUT 
gheesh I have to go through so many steps to get to the graphic
is that normal
is there a shortcut
is there a way to select multiple graphics at one time...
wow lots of questions 
and I am still trying to download all of my font.... 
I have many questions
I need to go to the tutorials the geeks that set up my computer told me about...
I loved those geeks so I think I shall go
OK enough about my lack of apple knowledge and geeks

 here it is
simple and sweet

don't forget the rule of 3...
visit 2 ahead of your link and at least one behind you :)

  5. Hooray for your birthday! AND Disney! AND the good ol' Miss Me Jeans. I love the jeans but my short self looks terrible in them. I didn't know you just switched to MAC! Text me if you need help. I am married to mine. When y'all decide to sell I promise if you bury a St. Joseph statue upside down in your backyard you will sell your house super pronto. I gave one to Reagan when she was selling her house. If she didn't bury it you should take it back!

  6. Good luck on your house hunt! So fun and exciting! And stressful and dramatic but so worth it in the end. Enjoy your birthday, too!

    I Teach. What's Your Super Power?

  7. I don't think this month's Currently is bland at all! I love it!

    Happy Early Birthday!

    Blooming In First

  8. Yay for May birthdays! Mine is next week too! Tonight I went to get a drink came back and I ended up be #15 on your currently! So happy to join the party on time!

    Happy Early Birthday!!

  9. Dear Farley...if you're older, that just means I AM TOO! Watch out for that snarkie remark about fifties...I resemble that range of numbers.

    Happy HaPpY BiRThDaY to my beautiful daughter.

    Love You...


    P.S. I do rock the latest mani/pedi selection we did together. LOL

  10. Happy early birthday to you! I hope you and your little guy (and your man too) have a great time at Disney! Thanks for hosting this each month!

  11. I always love your linky!! Thank you for battling your computer for the "currently's" sake! :) Not sure if you're aware, but even when you're searching on the MAC to add/upload things to documents, you can use the magnifying glass to search EVERYTHING on your computer. It is my BFFE, if I didn't have it, I don't think I would ever find anything on my computer!

    Surviving the Little People

  12. Thanks for hosting this, I always love it! Okay multiple graphics, click a graphic, hold the command button while clicking each one. You can "grab" multiple graphics this way :)

  13. I am enjoying your blog! I love your style, I am new to this blogging business and the graphics I see on your blog and others is intimidating, but I hope to learn about it eventually! In the meantime, I really like your currently section. I added my link BUT didn't realize that I should type in my blog name not MY name, oh well!
    thanks and happy spring, Paula

  14. Oh how I love the beginning of months and I get to do this! :)
    If you think you're old..I must be ancient. :)
    What program are you using on your MAC? I have had mine for years. I would love to help if I can.

  15. Happy early birthday! On my wish list I need to add Miss Me jeans! I love how you host this so different grade levels/areas can mix and mesh. :0)

  16. We are twins :) My bday is also May 8th! I'm going to be 35... but I still feel 29 so I might stay with that. Happy Birthday!!

  17. Hi Farley,

    Love your blog and Currently Link Ups. Thanks for doing them. My daughter's birthday is May 8th. Great day for a birthday! I changed from a PC to a MAC a year ago. I'll never go back. Love the MAC. Just give it time. I think you'll love it, too.

  18. Figuring out my new Mac was SO hard! It was such an adjustment and I got so frustrated at times! I love it now, though! I hope you start to love it soon :) Your currently still looks cute to me!!
    Happy Early Birthday! :)


  19. Oh, and P.S. I am having a giveaway and doing Flash Freebies this week on my Facebook with lots of great 4th grade resources! I'd love for you to stop by and enter :)


  20. Happy Birthday! I'm older than you...don't be woe! Congrats on the MissMe jeans! Since my 14 yr-old daughter wears them, I'm not really allowed. Yup, that's what happens when a daughter becomes a teen. (And, I don't think they fit me)

    Thanks for continuing the Currently tradition!

  21. Happy Birthday! I'm older than you, but very young - so you are REALLY young! Thanks for the sponsor opportunity - so fun & easy :)

  22. Happy Bday!!
    Ps. I have a MAC, and yes you can highlight the graphics you want and drag them to the page. I like to keep them all selected to change the size at once with my inspector. Then I move them around where I want them-Hope this helps! Have a great day!

  23. Happy early Birthday!!

    I've had my MacBook for only about 2 months and I use Microsoft PowerPoint to make a lot of my classroom stuff. I miss highlighting a ton of pics and inserting them at once. I am not a fan of 'Insert" "Picture" over and over. I did find that if you haven't maximized the program (for me it'd be PowerPoint) you can click on Finder and go to the file with your graphics and click and drag them to the document. So, it's cut out 'insert' 'picture' 'hunt for picture' when I'm making stuff.

    You Might Be a First Grader….
    I hope that helps...or at least made sense.

  24. Happy happy birthday, girl! Nothing bland about this! :)

    Learning With Mrs. Leeby

  25. Happy Birthday, Farley! Hope it's a great year for you! :)
    Thanks for hosting Currently!

    Read With Me ABC

  26. Not sure what program you use but macs are all about drag and drop! I hot mine in January and after awhile adding one picture figured out I can just pull them not PowerPoint when I make my files.

  27. Wonderfully witty Currently, as usual! Thanks for hosting this linky every month. I always find new blogs to look at.
    Enjoy your Birthday!
    Coffee Cups and Lesson Plans

  28. Thanks Farley! Miss Me jeans! I would love to own a pair! I borrowed a pair from a friend while in Vegas! They are wonderful!

  29. Happy Birthday! Thanks for hosting this fun linky each month! I live right around the corner (35 minutes) from Disney-maybe I'll see you there! Just got back from a Disney Cruise today-you must go on one if you haven't!!! You will totally puffy heart it! :O) Miss Me jeans rock and you will rock them girl!

  30. Happy Early Birthday!! You will LOVE your Mac, once you get used to it. Once you go Mac, you'll never go back! LOL :) Enjoy Disney!!!

    Hippo Hooray for Second Grade!

  31. Hoppy Bird Day to you! Enjoy Disney! That is my dream vacation for my family. Thank you for hosting this every month.

  32. I love the summer bucket list.... exciting to think about summer, approaching so quickly =)


  33. I made the switch from a PC to a Mac last year. It took a bit to get used to, but I found that overall it is much more user friendly! One tip for putting images in things (like Powerpoint), just open the folder the image is in (I keep all my clipart in folders on my desktop) and drag and drop it to your Powerpoint presentation. It's as easy as that!

    The Littlest Scholars

  34. This is my first Currently! I'm definitely excited about it too! By the way, I've had my Mac for five months and I'm no closer to figuring it out than you are!!

    First Year Frenzy

  35. I LOVE using my MAC (which I've had for a little over a year). If you haven't downloaded "Pages" or "Keynote" yet, those are fantastic! I use Keynote to create a lot and it's pretty easy to use. Good luck!!

    Table Talk with C & C

  36. I love your monthly linky party! I just made a Teaching Blog Directory on my blog where teacher bloggers put in their info. It would be great if you help spread the word since I'm the only one on it so far, in the math section : )

  37. Sorry my blog image didn't come out and I couldn't delete it. My blog pic is not a little froggy guy!
    Happy birthday!

  38. I'm totally feeling the summeritis blues!

  39. I am so excited to participate in my first Currently! I can't believe I just now discovered this! :)

  40. We seriously need to have a garage sale, but it is just so much work getting it together...LOL. Hope y'all enjoy your trip to Disney - always fun!!! Moving into a new house can be stressful, too... so much to do!!! Best of luck!! :)

Thanks for providing this linky for everyone! I have enjoyed reading everyone's currently and am excited to now be part of it! :)
