July Currently

Once again I’m linking up with Farley on this busy weekend for her usual Currently.

Check mine out below:

If your wondering about my books, I did a post on the Awesome book here! CHECK IT OUT!!! It is a fantastic book.

The Cornerstone is a book I’m sure you have all heard of and Angela has an amazing website!  Hands-down this would be my go-to book for beginning teachers (I know I’m not a veteran or anything it is just that good!)

It is chocked full  of amazing information in and easy to read format that actually makes it sound like it would be something I might implement and not be intimidated by.  Not to mention all the great resources that come with it online!  Check it out too!

I have some awesome ideas for this week so be on the lookout for more awesome experiments! 🙂

I read the rules and I’m all ready to comment and read everyone’s currently!

    We need rain here in Arkansas also. There have been multiple fires across the state which is unusual for us. I am going to miss fireworks this 4th.

    I LOVE the name of your blog!
