July Currently & Two for Tuesday!

I'm linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for July Currently and The Teaching Tribune for Two for Tuesday!

Listening- I LOVE Law & Order: SVU!  I've probably seen just about every episode, and I love the marathons they run on the USA network.  Next to Scandal, it's my favorite show!

Loving- I am so happy to be home with my husband and daughter for the summer!  We are getting some much needed family time.  My little peanut got a pool for her birthday, so she has been enjoying the water, and we have been soaking up some rays!

Thinking- Is it just me, or does summer seem to be flying by?  It seems like once the 4th of July hits, it's all downhill from there!  Attention Summer: PLEASE SLOW DOWN!!

Wanting- OMG!  Have you ever been to Chipotle?  I seriously have an addiction to their burrito bowls!  We eat there at least once a week.  I am completely obsessed with their food! 

Needing- I really need to spend some time going through each room of my house and getting things organized.  We keep adding more and more junk (especially since having Leah), but never getting rid of anything.  I don't want to go back to school in August with things being disorganized.  SIGH...I just need to make myself a schedule (go through one room a day, etc.) and get working. 

4th Plans- As of right now, we are going to go to a parade and see fireworks!  There was some talk on the news of a serious storm rolling through on Friday that is coming from Florida, so we'll see how those plans work out.  If not, some sparklers in the garage will have to do! :)

Alright...onto Two for Tuesday!

#1:  I recently posted a 1st Grade Science Poster Bundle.  This bundle contains my 1st Grade Life Science, Physical Science, and Earth Science Posters.  It is Common Core aligned and is currently listed at 50% off!  This is a total steal considering the bundle is already 20% off the cost of the three sets put together!

Each set contains posters on various topics covered by the 1st Grade Common Core Science Standards.  These posters are perfect for assessing students at the end of a lesson/unit and are also great note-taking tools.  Students can answer the questions in using sentences and/or pictures. 

I also have Science Posters available for grades 2-5- both individual sets and bundles!

#2: My 2nd Grade Geometry Posters are also 50% off today!  This resource is aligned with the 2nd Grade Common Core Standards.  These posters can be used as an assessment after a lesson/unit, class work, or even homework. 

I also have math posters available for grades 3 & 4.

Have a great Tuesday!


  1. Mmm! You just determined what I will be eating for lunch today! I LOVE Chipotle burrito bowls too! I'm so craving one right now.
    And yes! Summer is just speeding on by! Jeez! I asked it to slow down in my post.

    Hope you have a happy 4th!

  2. The storm is supposed to hit us too. Hopefully it won't and we will both get to keep our plans! I love your daughter's swimming pool - so cute!
