August (Already?) Currently

How can it be August already? Yesterday it was June! (or so it seems...)
What would a new month be without a link-up with Farley?

Yippee! Time for the latest edition of Currently from Oh Boy Fourth Grade...

As you can tell I am having a love-hate relationship with my garage. I dislike the fact that it is taking so much time to get this task done, but I am so glad to be sorting through the towering piles. If you don't hear from me for a while, please check the garage... somewhere between the 1985 edition bread machine and the 14 assorted Easter baskets! (Oh, if only I were kidding...)

That last section on the Currently template is about those three things you simply MUST have for Back to School. Well, it was supposed to be three. I went for a rather "combo approach" on that last one. I could have typed "sanity," because those items listed are the necessary components of sanity...

Since Farley is all about sharing the Love (Which makes her even more SuperFabulous in my mind), she has designed a way to make even more connections with other bloggers: When you link up, remember to comment on the two Currently links before you and the Currently link that comes after you (Yep... you get to go back and check. That's what makes it so much fun!) Also, there are TWO chances to link up this time. The first one is to link up your "Mustache Posts" in the Mustache Linky Party (which is not the Currently Party). The second one is the "traditional" Currently where you will find LOTS of link-ups! It's only August 4th and there are already 229 links there (not counting a few that got lost in the Mustache section). Hope to see you there! (Thanks, Farley!)



  1. best laid plans, my friend....we all have them :)

  2. So proud of you for cleaning out your garage--I really need to do the basement!

  3. If it makes you feel any better, I have a love-hate relationship with my garage, too :) and I love your third B2S. I need that one, too!

  4. Kim,
    I am trying out Interactive Notebooks this year, too. I bought Dinah Zike's book to help me get started.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Sixth grade blogs are priceless gems! :-)

  5. Kim,
    I am your newest follower thanks to Currently...I am also a new blogger...and a 6th-8th Special Ed teacher of Literacy.
    I am with you on the piles...I am slowly making my way through the mountain. Is there an end in sight? I really hope so. Getting rid of things is liberating isn't it?
    Looking forward to following you.

  6. After reading your list I could so go for starbucks right now! Thanks for becoming a follower of my blog. I am now a follower of yours.

  7. Yes... Erin Condren! I have her lifeplanner and it is amazing AND so cute!


  8. I have been saying the same things about this year, too. I want to be better at teaching math, and reading, and writing, and Social Studies . . . every time I say it, my partner says I'm underestimating myself.
    So, Kim, you're underestimating yourself. :) :) :)

  9. I need to clean out my garage too... ooooh the thought of it makes me want to hurl... and THANKS for stating the rules again... some LOST teachers are hanging out in the Mustache Party :(

  10. OH I love cleaning things out and throwing stuff away! Makes me feel so much better. Love your wanting and needing... they truly go hand in hand!

  11. Bless your heart cleaning out the garage. Fortunately the garage and basement are my husband's domain. I am going into school tomorrow to start on my classroom.

  12. I "started" cleaning out my office/junk room, but the junk has won out AGAIN! It just feels like an impossible task right now. :)

    How did you make your own currently sign? I tried saving one in powerpoint and editing the text, but my feeble mind couldn't make that happen!


  13. Kim, love your currently! Especially the stuff in the living room that needs to get to school. I have a pile myself!

  14. Hi Kim,
