July Currently & Updates!

Listening:  So I finally caved and decided to watch True Detective.  I didn't want to be left out of the cool kids TV club.  It was actually pretty good!  I always like to have something playing in the background while I am working on TpT stuff.

Loving:  I headed over to Cincinnati which is about a 2.5 hour drive from home to go to IKEA.  I grabbed up some great purchases for my classroom.  Nothing big, but enough to get me excited about getting my room ready for Back to School.  I know I shouldn't be thinking about that!

Thinking:  I have so many things that I still need to get done this summer.  I think I put too many things on my list... repainting/redecorating a bedroom, school projects, travel, TpT goals, watching Netflix, napping...I am excelling at two of those!

Wanting:  Who doesn't want another week of summer?

Needing:  I am really good at picking out decor for other people, not so much myself.  I think I second guess myself too much, plus it's easier to choose when it's someone else who is buying!

4th Plans:  Pretty much everyone in the county heads down to the George Roger's Clark Memorial to watch the fireworks.  It's actually a pretty impressive display for a small town!

~I have been working like crazy to redo all of my common core teacher binders.  They were one of the first products that I made and they needed a TOTAL overhaul!  I am changing out all of the backgrounds, fonts, and giving them a visual makeover.... but I am also making them totally EDITABLE!!  Don't fear though, they are both in PDF and editable for those who don't want to mess with the editable part!  They also have a TON of new forms in them...so exciting!  So far I have to 3rd grade bright version redone and uploaded and a new primary color theme of the 3rd grade done!  The rest (including first grade) will be uploading this week!  So if you have purchased one  in the past, make sure you download the updated version (you will be so happy!).

Head on over to find more currently posts with Farley!

Have a Happy 4th of July,


  1. Your teacher binders look amazing! I have such an addiction to them (and just organisers/planners in general). I'll definitely have to check them out. Also I love that you have napping and watching Netflix on your to do list, very important summer activities :)


  2. Good luck with finding a bedspread I find that super difficult too. I have finally found ones I like (quilted ones from Bed, Bath & Table) but as I am from Australia I don't think that will help! Wishing you a great 4th- sounds awesome.

  3. I'm excited to see your new IKEA stuff in your classroom! I love going there but I seriously get lost every time. I hope you have a happy 4th!

    Fun in PreK-1 & Kinder

  4. I totally wanna see your IKEA stuff! I just went there myself! I spent shockingly little… I think I did it wrong. ;)
