So, my Currently is just a smidgen late!
Here it goes!

Goosebumps has 13 episodes that just popped up on Netflix.
We've watched half already.
I just loved Goosebumps as a kid, and these shows are the super cheese, but I still love them anyways.

Instagram is fun. It has become even cooler now that I'm connecting with so many teachers. I mean, Sarah Cooley follows me. I almost DIED. She is one of my teaching idols.
Before I got my first job last year (there was a possibility of me being in first) I bought so many items in her shop and still find ways to use them in third or with my daughter. She is seriously the coolest. Follow me on IG: riedmillersroom

I signed up for this week long training session for the new Third Grade Guarantee.
I'm actually really glad that I'm on board. I'll learn about all the new things that are going on with legislation and I know it will be useful!

I'm wanting some sleep. Having to be in that training all day today (after my body has been in summer mode for almost two weeks) killed me. I came home exhausted. Tomorrow I'm planning a nap afterwards!

Is it October yet? The Walking Dead returns and I cannot wait to see what's going on at the prison. I'll leave it at that so there's no spoilers.
Anyone else out there having walker withdrawls???

Three essentials for vacation. Vacation that I'm NOT going on this year... would be flip flops, maxi dresses and shades. Maxis have been my summer go to. I need some new summer shades. BAD!

Made It Monday {Getting in the groove!}

Made it Monday is back. I know I'm not the only one that is SO excited!
Head over to Fourth Grade Frolics tomorrow and check out some ideas for DIY classroom goodies. I am kind of in a creative rut. I have some ideas here and there and this week is going to be a digital Made it Monday.

I really want to know what will be this year's Teacher Toolbox?
You know what I mean? The IT thing this year that all the teachers will be making!

I still am not sure if I'll be in 4th LA or 2nd grade next year, but I do know one thing.
My classroom theme is going to be BRIGHTS. I'm talking super bright neon almost colors.
I was excited to get started so I made myself a Word Wall.
It ended up being a rather large file (over 70 pages) so I made it into two.
The headers may be my favorite part. They turned out awesome!

The card are really cute, too!
I can't wait to get these on my blackboard for a huge POP of color!

What are you girls working on this week?
I can't wait to see.

BTW are you joining in on all of the IG fun? I feel like I've been "meeting" so many teacher friends on there. My name is RiedmillersRoom find me and we'll be pals! :)
