Currently October

Love taking a moment to think about Currently October!

I started this in the early morning ... my favorite quiet time.  I love time to drink my coffee, mull over the upcoming day, check email, read Scripture, talk to my Father.

Living in Texas, our mornings are cool - opening the windows is a treat!  The afternoons are hot - still in the 90s.  I love the contrast!  Not the autumn of my youth in Virginia, but great fun to experience the variety of temperatures!

I'm grading tests this week.  I was hoping to report higher class averages than on the first test but so far (2 out of six classes) the averages are not better.  I have more perfect papers.  I have more grades in the 40s and 50s.  How can help those students who are not experiencing success to do so?

My bedroom has a little extra space.  My husband and I are creating a little space with recliners, TV, book shelf ... a get away spot.  I hoping that the space will be ready in the next few days!  I'll post pictures when we get it finished!

Our school district does not take a Fall Break ... yep ... not even a day!  I'm working evenings to grade the 150 test papers before our marking period ends.  In fact ... I'm stealing time from grading right now to type  up this note.  I wish, I wish ... a magic potion ... for grading!  I have finally put all quizzes and learning checks on Edmodo ... love that tool!

Last ... my treat ... my favorite app ... CamScanner!

October promises to be an exciting month!

PS ... read my 180 blog!

    1. It scans documents into a pdf. I use it to post work for my high schoolers - pdfs of their work, or of my examples.
