August Currently!/Portable woes

Wow! August already...I have 20 days before I meet my kids for the upcoming school year and 24 before the first day of school! I'm starting to panic a little. This year I'm going to be in a portable and the portables are still being set up and adjusted in front of the school building so unfortunately I can't get in their and start setting up yet -___-! I'm panicking just a little...time is slowly slipping away.

Anywaayyyy to the August Currently! Come link up with Farley and the rest of the gang over at Oh Boy Fourth Grade!

I just ordered myself a personal laminator after seeing it on many blogs, I'm eagerly waiting it's arrival so I can get started on laminating my stuff for back to school!

The Creative Teacher is by the same people who brought you the Organized Teacher. It has a lot of great idea for lessons that will both engage the students and promote higher order thinking. It's awesome!

All I have to say is, ever since middle school the glittery BIC mechanical pencils have been a staple in my back to school cart. I must have thousands of them. 

So come join the party! 

And here's a picture of my little pricklebutt playing hide and seek with me and the bf this morning
