Currently: May!

Hi friends,

May, I love May....the anticipation of the summer off, family trips, water activities and sleeping inI have linked with the wonderful Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the fifth Currently of the year!

Saturday mornings are usually really easy at the Galarza's headquarters. We wake up and watch a little TV before starting our go-with-the-flow day (unless we have Girl Scouts events planned). So...I think I can hear some superheroes show on TV....not sure :l

My new school site placement assignment. After two years in my current school site, I will be changing sites. I'm going back to where all started! This site was where I did my Masters degree internship three years ago...I'm very excited for this opportunity.

We all just can't stop thinking about our new home! Very exciting time in our household right now!

Mother's Day is around the corner, and I would like to be surprised! This year there is nothing specific I'd like, so a surprise would be nice!

With only 33 instructional days left, my kiddos have started become excited for the summer and some are forgetting to follow classroom expectations....lots of reinforcements and modeling expected behavior.
Let's finish strong!

SUMMER 2015...
This will be a short summer for me - only 4 weeks! We have lots of plans for this magical time. We plan to go to Vegas for the TpT conference, go camping, create and update my TpT store, do a couple of family trips and just have a fun time together.

Join the link to see what's everybody is up to this month!

Keep learning,


  1. I love camping! What state are you in? Where do you like to go camping?

    1. Hello Lynn, I'm from San Diego, CA. We plan to go camping at Santee Lakes.

  2. We just bought a new house as well! I'm jealous of all of you who are going to the TpT conference in Vegas! Wish I could go too! And sounds like a lot of people are planning to work on their TpT store in the summer! I'm in the same boat :)

    1. Hi Yukari (love your name BTW!)

      Your name reminded me of a cute Japanese girl on my first year teaching named Sakura.
      We plan to move into our new home by the end of the summer.

  3. Hi Janice,

    Sounds like there are few of us with new houses! I moved to a new place a year ago, and am still loving decorating. Let's hope for big sales on TpT so we can do more shopping!

    I'm jealous that you'll get to go to the conference. I have a conflict and can't make it this year.

    Wow - only 4 weeks of summer. :(

    Enjoy your weekend-
    Learning in the Little Apple

    1. Although we follow a year-round school schedule, last year my school site went under a massive modernization and only for this year we are following a traditional schedule.

      I will finish on June 19 and begin again on July 20. That's why I have a short summer break, instead of 7 weeks.
