  1. Not a shameless plug!!! I was hoping you'd have something like that anyway- because last month I was thinking "Heather, you really should have this in your classroom". And admittedly, I did say it out loud to myself. I'm in a house with my nutty mother and three children. I AM the only person to talk to around here... I thought of you when I posted on instagram this morning: What's the cheapest type of meat? Deer Balls. They're under a buck.

    I'm in rural VA. Deer jokes are a total thing here. #maybetheyshouldntbe. Anyway- love your hipster deer. I'm off to go do the currently!

  2. You are so lucky to have all of that help in your classroom! I've been doing most by myself, but I'm pregnant now so I can do a few hours then I need to stop! LoL! I'm lucky enough that my mom is going to come help me a bit next week to hang the high stuff that requires ladders and such.

    What a cute idea to use "Currently" in a classroom! LOVE IT! Keep those shamless plugs going!!


  3. Your new Currently template looks adorable!! :) I can't wait to see your classroom finished!!

    A Sunny Day in First Grade

  4. I agree with you, I definitely need to make these last few days of summer count, especially since my birthday is one of them!
    I wanted to comment on your page because I saw you are going to the blogger meet up in ATX and I am so excited to meet you! :) We live so close and it's crazy that I read your blog quite often and have no idea who you are in person!!!

    Can't wait!!
    Mrs. Thomas's Class

    1. you are so sweet... I am excited for the meet up in Austin... it is going to be so FUN!!!

  5. I was sweating whether I'd get to link up! Game tonight and then early! morning. But I didn't want to bug you! Love you, girl!

    Krazy Town

    3. I am sorry it didn't work out for you... I have deleted your links and hope you try it again next month.

  8. Loved using the Currently's in the Classroom with my students! Great way to really get to know your kiddos!
    See you in Austin!

    1. Just saw your mom on the commercial!

  9. Thank you so much for doing this - I have seen your currentlys on pinterest many times and wished I could use them for scrapbooks! Now that I have started blogging (almost 1 week in!) I was thrilled to realized I could link up for this - and now you have the forms on TPT! This is a dream come true!

  10. Thank you for hosting my favorite blog party. It must be frustrating to have to check on the people who link up. I look forward to reading other posts and seeing what other teachers are doing and making new friends.
    Thank you,

  11. Family helping in and out of my classroom is a TRADITION for me! Just yesterday, my 22-year-old daughter laminated my new calendar set and on Monday she is coming to school with me to purge the file drawers of worksheets left from prehistoric teaching times! I tend to SAVE when I should not, so she is going to do a clean sweep for me!

    The tooth fairy used to bring silver dollars back in my day.....and my Dad used to yank our teeth out with dental floss tied around them....but it hurt......so let Bubs just finally fall out while eating an apple or corn-on-the-cob! Last year the going rate for lost teeth was anywhere from $1 to $5!

    As always, thanks for the fun monthly link up! I just love reading as many as I can! Best wishes as you head into a fresh new year! May both your classroom and your home get put back in order in record time!

  12. Awww! The Tooth Fairy! The rate around here is anywhere between $1-5. But the Tooth Fairy ALWAYS wraps loose change in the dollar(s). Then my kids have to count how much. Once, my daughter lost her tooth on the eve of her birthday and the Tooth Fairy gave her $6.18! Her birthday is 6/18 ;)

  13. The Tooth Fairy pays $5 per tooth around here. Except 1 time she paid $10 (which we are guessing was because she didn't have change and we were in another country). Glad to hear (from IG) that the dentist appointment went well. Enjoy these last few days! Thanks for hosting as always!
    Funky First Grade Fun

  14. Our tooth fairy pays $20 for the first tooth, we think she was low on change that time, but precedent was set...lol. After the first one she leaves $5. That's so great that the whole family pitches in to help get your room arranged. Thanks so much for always hosting this fun linky.

  15. I love how you added a 'squirrel' to your post... :) Made me smile big. I have followed you on Instagram, and am looking forward to the room reveal! Looks like you're making some good progress!

  16. Make those last days count! That's my motto right now. It's hard to force myself away from the computer, where I want to create all sorts of goodies for the new year, but I know that I must treasure these final days! I'm glad you plugged your resources. I just added one to my cart!

    Thanks again for always hosting what has become my favorite monthly linky!

  17. For the first tooth, the tooth fairy leaves a gold dollar coin. After that, she leaves $1 per tooth. Once, my daughter had to have four teeth pulled at the same time and she left her $10. I think the tooth fairy felt sorry for all the pain she went through! I've got four kids, so I don't appreciate all the fairies that leave $5 or more per tooth and set the expectations so high! hahaha

    I've enjoyed seeing your room on Instagram! Looking good!

  18. Oh I just love your sassy lil butt! You make me laugh! The tooth fairy used to leave a dollar for me back in the day...I had some beautiful pearly whites! Best of luck as you get your classroom done...I've got this huge urge to paint part of my room. Yikes!
    Short and Sassy Teacher

  19. I think our tooth fairy was on strike when I was 5... I didn't get anything haha!!
    Have fun getting your new room sorted! Can't wait to see the updates.

    Learning to be awesome

  20. Wish I wasn't traveling today. Sorry I missed currently. I'm currently in Montana thinking about the beautiful mountains and loving the weather. It's so nice compared to the humidity in Florida. I go back August 12th and the kids come on the 19th. The tooth fairy use to bring me sparkly dollar bills.

  21. So excited to join the Currently party...I'm new to this. So sorry to hear about your flood...hope everything returns to normal soon. I adore your spunk and enjoy your blog. Thanks for sharing.

    your WORDS Diary of a First Grade Teacher

  22. Hey ya, Farley! Thank goodness you keep those tutorials up on your blog... I've got a new laptop, operating system and apps, and errr... nothing is easy. I look forward to your Currently every month. And Rule of THREE? HA, more like rule of twenty three for me. I love seeing what everyone is up to, even as I should be doing OTHER stuff. I live down in these blog rabbit holes :) See ya around. Kathleen

  23. Hurray for the Tooth Fairy! I always got a dollar for each tooth. Once I had 4 pulled by the dentist and it hurt bad since they didn't numb me up correctly. So she took pity on me and gave me an extra dollar for that. :) Thanks for this awesome link up!
    Mrs. Landry's Land of Learning

  24. So I'm new to blogging and I linked up, then it took me forever to do my currently. Hopefully next month I'll get it right :)

  25. I FINALLY linked up for August my friend!! It might make you smile to know that your monthly Currently link up is now one of my monthly Blogging goals!! HA!! I can tell that you are in full throttle school mode... I can't say that I miss those days, but I do miss having a classroom to decorate and meeting a new group of kids each year!! Thank you putting this together!!

  26. When I was little the tooth fairy paid $1, but now she pays $5. Inflation I guess. She has even paid for a shark tooth from the beach.

  27. Its a great pleasure reading your post.Its full of information I am looking for and I love to post a comment that "The content of your post is awesome" Great work.
