November Currently

I am linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for November's currently. I cannot believe it has been over 2 months since I posted on my blog. I remember September and October's Currently posts going by and I kept saying I was going to do a post. Now it is already November...crazy!!

I like to start listening to Christmas music right after Halloween. It is some of my most favorite music. I am listening to my "Favorite Christmas" playlist. Some of my favorite songs are:
Wrapped in Red by Kelly Clarkson
Jesus, Savior by Chris August
Jesus is Alive by Josh Wilson
My Only Wish by Jessica Simpson
and many, many more!

We have finally gotten some cooler weather in Charleston. This weekend we got a super cold front, like snow in some cities a couple hours north of us! It is supposed to be a little warmer this week. I love being able to wear sweaters, vests, scarves and boots.
These are some fall outfit inspiration photos I like:

Thinking & Wanting:
Back in August when I last posted, I was hoping to be in my new trailer soon. It is now November, and I'm still not in the new trailer, but the trailers are at our school. They are getting plumbing and electricity hooked up. I am thinking I will be in there by the end of this month...hopefully!

I need to take some more recent pictures of them. This was right after they were delivered. They each came in two pieces.

I created this blog 2 summers ago, but I didn't really start posting on it until this summer. I really wanted to keep up with posting. I want to try to get back into the swing of blogging and post at least once a week. I also need to take pictures of the crafts we have done so far this year!

I have been reading many different links from pinterest about helping children with reading at home. I am having parent teacher conferences over the next few weeks. I want to have good resources to share with them. I am open to suggestions about helping parents find books for their students that are reading on levels A-D. Our students are expected to be reading on level D or higher by the end of kindergarten. Most of my students are not on a level A yet. I know that Scholastic has many great choices, but I don't know where else to refer them to for books on these levels.

Thanks for stopping by to read and catch up. I will be featured on Amanda at Teaching Maddeness' blog for her Budding Bloggers Showcase on November 15th. I'm excited to share about myself and my teaching!


  1. Found your blog thru Farley's linkup :) I am soo happy to hear someone else has been crazy busy and hasn't had time to blog! I started a new position this year, and my poor blog's been neglected! I even did some posts this weekend and scheduled them on different days so it wouldn't look so pathetic LOL. Glad to find you! :)

  2. I missed last month's currently as well! Where does the time go? Good luck on the move. I moved classrooms last year and it really helped me purge some of my stuff. I hope you are able to move soon.

  3. How exciting you get a new trailer! We called ours "portables" and I loved teaching middle school math in a brand new one! I had my own A/C unit which was very cool. Have fun getting ready for the holidays!

  4. Hi Kayla, I LOVE that you're listening to Christmas music!! My daughters always say I drive them crazy because I only play Christmas music from Thanksgiving to Christmas (I'll let them know that I know someone who starts right after Halloween! LOL) Good luck moving into your trailer; exciting that it'll be brand spanking new!
