I've been fighting off some sort of sickness all week, so I have had a very lazy Saturday to recuperate. There is a Big Bang Theory marathon on TV, so I have been parked under the electric blanket on the couch, dozing in and out of naps.
Loving: Lazy Saturdays. Enough said. :)
Thinking: Any fun ways to incorporate comprehension strategies into reading? We have been working on using a highlighter to find evidence from the text (ie, not highlighting every word on the page and then drawing swirly hearts in the margins - d'oh!). But, we're still struggling with it some, so I'm on the hunt for some fun and rewarding comprehension strategies. Any that you all like? Please share in the comments!
I have been reading more about paperless classrooms lately, and I'm definitely intrigued. I am not at a school that has a 1:1 initiative with iPads or laptops, but many of my students bring their own electronic devices to class. I would say about 35% of my class bring some sort of device. Would love to make it paperless somehow in the next few years!
3/6 Update: I've decided to link up with Eberopolis to take some steps toward a Paperless Classroom. Want to know more? Link up with us!! I blogged about it here.
To be well. That is all. I have been under the weather for almost a week now. Although the forced down time has been nice, I'm ready to bounce back!

Love - June! (Don't get me wrong, I love my job. But I find the summers off are so refreshing. I am lucky to work in a job that allows me to mentally reset each year. I love-love-love summer and everything that comes with it, except the NC humidity - yuck!)
Hate - Junk. I get stressed out when I have too much stuff. So, getting rid of junk makes me super happy! Bonus points for when someone can use the stuff I don't need for anymore.
Thanks again for Farley over at Oh Boy, 4th Grade for hosting this month's Currently.
