Listening - Yes, I'm in AZ. It is crazy hot right now (as I know it is practically everywhere else in the country!). It is too hot to even go swimming - the pool water feels like bath water!
Loving - Sleeping in. I'm a night owl at heart, but I don't have the luxury during the school year to stay up late. So my summer nights are late nights!
Thinking - Our house is a work in progress. I can't seem to get a complete vision for what I want - and so things go unfinished, which makes me NUTS!
Wanting - Ohhhh, am I ever excited for my Amazon order! I just ordered several series of books for my classroom. I've read the first in each, but can't wait to read each series before I put them in my classroom library! Ender's Game, The Amulet, The Sisters Eight, The City of Ember, plus some new markers and gel pens for me!
Needing - We spent the day deep cleaning, and oooh my back is sore. I need a massage. Stat.
Reads - One of my favorite read alouds is The Man Who Walked Between the Towers. Students love the story - and it helps to keep 9/11 a current topic - without getting in the gruesome details that aren't mine to share with 9-year-olds...
The Book Whisperer. Need I say more? If you haven't read it - read it! I read it near the end of the school year, and in the few short weeks I had left with my kids, I was able to turn things around in our classroom. I love reading - and want my kids to love it, too!
I can't wait to see what everyone is up to this month!
