August Currently!

Sorry I haven't been posting too much guys!  I've been busy busy busy back at work getting my new classroom ready for the first day of school - which is MONDAY!  EEeeeekekekkkk!

Plus, I have lots of ideas in my head about doing a "Show off Your Class" linky...  I have to remember to tuck my camera into my bag for Monday and get the ball rolling.  I just want to peek into everyone's room when the school year starts and I think this linky will do the trick.

I also can't believe that it's August 4th... and already 200+ people are linked up at Farley's linky party.  Sheesh!  You guys are on the ball!

Thank you Farley for hosting!

I should be posting again soon....  Hopefully, tomorrow or Monday... maybe even Tuesday!


  1. Hi Lauren- I love, LOVE your blog! It is SO nice to see some middle school blogs! I teach 5th, but I tend to think I have more in common with middle school vs. lower-el!! I enjoyed reading your "August currently" too! Back to school next week?! Ahh! Good luck sista'!

    1. I totally agree!:-) I always get more ideas from middle school blogs too.


    2. I was just about to comment the same thing!! I love all the cute and wonderful things you see on the lower grades but I love when I find a middle school teacher and how they do things. I have gotten so many wonderful ideas this summer and can't wait to incorporate them!

    3. Thank you guys! :) I feel the same way about the Middle School blogs!

  2. Printer ink is on my list of things to buy, too! I love your idea for a classroom linky... will be stopping by again to see about linking up! :)

    <3 Newest Follower,

  3. Have a great first day back! I hope your district unblocks Google Docs's essential!

  4. I would love to know which protective cover you get. I just love my mac so much more than my school computer and need to start taking it with me. I am so glad I found your blog!


    (I can't figure out how to make it link directly to my blog. I feel stupid.)

    1. Hi Kati - I'm still searching for something I love! As for your link - check out Ladybug's Teachers files - she has a great tutorial on how to make your link active in your signature! :)

  5. I teach 3rd and love to glean ideas from Middle school teachers, too! I just started a First Day Stories linky -- I'd love to have you link up after tomorrow. Happy first day!

  6. Lauryn,

    You go back to school on Monday? Best of luck! I saw where you were talking about taking your camera to school for pics. Do you have a Dropbox account? It is an online file cabinet that you can access anywhere. Well, it now has a camera upload component so I can take pictures with my phone and they automatically appear in my Dropbox. No more having to find my camera cord to upload pics! Try it out!

    1. Carla -

      Thanks for the tip! It has been very helpful today with my pictures.

  7. Good luck on your 1st day back! Our students start on 20th and we start on 13th. I started a couple of weeks ago. :)


  8. Good luck on your first day back! :)


Thank you SO much for commenting on my blog! I read every comment and enjoy listening and seeing your thoughts! :)
