Winter Break Recap & A Currently

Can you believe it is time for another currently already?!?!?! Time flies when you're finishing classroom crafts, throwing those last few assessments, wrapping presents, shopping like a maniac, driving all over the state having fun!

In all honesty, this last month has been oh so busy but also oh so fun! I had a very California Christmas with my family in Central Coast and snapped this picture on Christmas day.

As I have crisscrossed the entire state of California over the last week or two, I am continually reminded of how blessed I am to be surrounded by good people and have a job that I love! I am also so blessed to have a two week break so that I am able to visit my family and friends and celebrate the holidays with the ones I love the most!

Oh and I need to pick your brain for ideas! My mom gave me  Cricut for Christmas! I am so excited to start using it! I have been out of town so much that I haven't really had a chance to play with it yet but I am planning to carve out some time tomorrow to make a few new things for the classroom.

 Do you have a Cricut?
 How do you use it for classroom stuff??? 
Any must have accessories? Favorite cartridges?
I need ideas! 

Without further currently: 

If you haven't done it already, go link up with Farley and join the currently party

Wishing you all a happy & healthy 2013!

  5. Hey Julia!

    Just stumbled upon your blog! I have a Cricut. It's a teacher's dream. I have the old one that small and portable. The best thing I use it for is cutting self-adhesive vinyl. I make all sorts of gifts with it. I made a glass block nameplate for my daughter's teacher this year. It's pretty cute. I blogged about it (of course!)

    We are your newest followers! Check out our blog if you get a chance!

  7. Julia,
    What grade so you teach? I saw something on Pinterest that might interest's called "Reading Across America YA" (or something like that)and each book that you read color in a map of the USA, because each book's setting is from that sounds way cooler than I am explaining it...
    Anyway I'm your newest follower Thanks for chicking in with me too!


      I knew That wasn't right!

    2. Thanks! That looks great!! I teach 5th grade in CA and Social Studies is all about US history/geography. What a great way to connect both contents!
