November Currently and Remembrance Day

 Farley inspires us all every month with her Currently and here is mine

My desk at school is so messy, I can't stand it anymore. I am actually going to work early tomorrow to clean it up. I started to think about how often my desk looks this bad and I realized - it's often. So then I tried to convince myself that maybe I should just leave it like that all the time. This idea lasts about 3 seconds. Funny thing is, no matter how messy it is, I always know where everything is.  
We are in the middle of a Remembrance Day unit. We have been making poppies, writing about brave war animals and learning about soldiers - our heros. 

That's what we've been up to in my neck of the woods. Don't forget to link up with Farley for this month's Currently.


  1. We are busy enjoying the great activities in your unit, love the graphics. Great pics, thanks for the glimpse into your classroom :)

  2. Hey! I am your latest follower! Found your blog through Currently...which I just love. It is great to have our blogs get so much exposure.

    I am watching the poll results as well. Probably won't go to bed until it is over with.

  3. My desk (really my kidney table) can NEVER stay clean. The bad thing is that I try to start the day with it clean. Then it keeps filling up but I need to teach students. So I pile it on the floor behind me. The cycle just repeats. I need a better system!

  4. I am with you on the messy desk! The problem with cleaning my desk is that when I am finished I can never find anything!! Not to mention 5 minutes after I clean, it is messy again. If you every find a plan for organizing I would love to hear it :). Love your Remembrance Day activities :).

  5. Oh for a day to get some work done! And I love new haircuts. That would be so nice :)
    I am convinced that my area will be cleaned up once conferences are over! Hmm...I wonder if that is true :)


  6. Hi Leslie! Nice to meet you. I'm Canadian, too! Clear across the country from you in Victoria. I found you through the Currently. Your blog is super cute -- I LOVE the peace signs.
    Take care.
