Currently December

Can you believe it is almost Christmas…
It is hard for me to imagine tomorrow is December 1st….
WHAT???

I know tomorrow is going to be so CRAZY with Cyber Monday sales…
especially at TpT!!!
Is your wish list crazy like mine???
I got on to Bub for being greedy with his Christmas list
and then I looked at my TpT wish list and
I felt a little bad for getting on to him…
just a little bad
seriously… how many legos can one kid have..
and they are NOT cheap… and if you step on one of those boogers…
BAD language is guaranteed to fly out of your mouth

nothing on my wish list causes such pain and profanity…

so to get ahead of the TpT sale breaking the internet
(isn't that the new saying… breaking the internet)

I wanted to get the CURRENTLY up and going tonight…
this month's sponsor is the one and only….
love her!!!

so let's get this party started…
 all of mine are pretty self explanatory
except giving…
EVERY December… I try to teach my students that giving is much more rewarding than receiving…
and every day we do a Random Act of Christmas Kindness…
we leave coins in the pencil machine…
we leave erasers or other school supplies randomly around the school…
we give treats to the office staff…
treats to the cafeteria workers…
treats to the custodians…
lots or different things…
and each treat has a RACK tag

I also do this at home.. with Bub….
mail man, sanitation workers, neighbors, friends, fast food drive thrus, coke machines, all different places….
it is a great way to teach the virtue of generosity!!!
so to help you out… I have a freebie in my TpT store that can help you with your
Random Acts of Kindness….
click on the pic below to get your free copy!!!

so before you link up…
PLEASE READ THE RULES…
they are easy

okie dokie… here is yours…
and if you are a FB follower or follow my IG…

I love my followers :)

FOR the GIVING…

  2. I'm so glad that you posted your RACK freebie! Before Thanksgiving, my 3rd grade team decided we were going to do RAK for December with our classes. We're going to have them write their RAKs on paper links and make a huge chain in the hallway connecting our classes! :) I LOLed about Bub's legos! :) I hope you have a wonderful December and Merry Christmas Farley! :)

  4. OH Farley, you are the sunshine at the start of every month. I love when currently comes!! I love your humour, and I love hearing about your adventures.
    I tried doing a RAK week with my kiddos earlier this year, but it failed. We will try again!

    Thanks!!

  10. Thank you for the RACK idea. I teach in a Catholic school and that will fit nicely into my Advent plans. I was also hoping you could give me a super quick explanation of how you did the stockings for your class last year as a class gift. I remember reading something about them and was hoping you could give a teensy bit more detail. I am looking for a new idea and remember filing that away last year. Thanks and have a great week!

  15. I love that you do RAKs in and out of the classroom. This is surely something I could get onboard with with my firsties!

  16. I love the addition on 'giving' and how you incorporate that into your classroom! Kids love to 'get', but when given the opportunity they learn how much fun giving truly is. Thank you for the adorably sweet freebie and for hosting my favorite link party of the month.

    Happy Holidays!

  17. Love the RACK idea! We do this as a family and even have a special day in our community for Random Acts of Kindness the Friday before Christmas, but we haven't participated at school! Can't wait to start this with my kinders!

  24. Our family loves to RACK!! I wrote about that as my advice. Everyone should try it at least once. You will want to do it again next year! It's so rewarding. Thanks for your Currently! I look forward to these every month!

  25. Such good post, I like it! I think it's great to teach kids some moral values with the help of your ideas! I have noticed that often children take teachers not as human beings but as heartless repressors and afraid of them, don't like study at all. Also, I'm sure that kids like your lessons and aren't afraid of you! You know today kids resort to personal essay writers or private tutors because they aren't seconded by their teachers. Good teachers keep kids busy, motivated and engaged at schools and teach them how to overcome study difficulties. We need new vision of teaching where teachers create the atmosphere of sympathetic understanding.
