October has finally arrived. One of my favorite months. I love the idea of cooler weather, with the sun but without the humidity, celebrating Halloween and it's my birthday month! How can I not love October? Anyway, I'm linking up with Farley for her October Currently.
Listening: I'm listening to the waterfall in the fish tank, while I sit in the office getting some work done. The fish are all lined up along the side of the fish tank hoping it's feeding time. My husband takes care of that, though. He's a fish tank junkie. We have more than one tank... :)
Loving: I'm loving the idea of attending my very first Illinois Reading Conference (IRC)! How can I be a Reading Specialist and never have attended the IRC? Strange, I know, but I've attended numerous other conferences related to literacy. The IRC is big time, though! Anyway, I'll be heading to Springfield after school today with some colleagues to learn loads of reading information and maybe relax a little. No children for a few days, just the gals hanging out. ;)
Thinking: What all do I need to pack for the IRC? I know to lack some nicer-casual outfits, so all set there. However, I'm such a snacker and feel I should pack some goodies, but deciding on which goodies is the tricky part. :)
Wanting: I'm wanting to grow professionally and learn lots at the IRC. I'm also wanting to cross off some more items on my Someday List and attending the IRC, at least once, is on my list! ;)
Needing: I'm needing to vacuum out my minivan to rid the Cheerios and Goldfish crackers from the seat crevices and floor! People may be riding back from the IRC with me, so I'd like them to feel comfortable in the car, not like an animal trapped in a moving food cart.
Trick or Treat: Treat! Check out the ScreenChomp App! It's great for lots of classroom activities!
Don't forget to link up with Farley to share your Currently.
Have a great October!
