October Currently

Ok.. Ok... So I'm going to admit that I am just plain horrible at keeping up with my poor little blog. I tried to hide it, and even lie to myself... but as the school year progressed and then add in sports, homework, TPTing, mommy and wifey duties.... I'm just a mess at night! By the time night time rolls around, I am useless and just want to spend the rest of my day rocking back and forth in the corner of my living room.  How do you super mama teachers out there do it?? ANY advice would be greatly appreciated!

So I am here linking up with Farley at Oh Boy 3rd Grade.  I like parties... so here I am.. useless and all... BUT I'm here! Haha!!

Listening: I love watching X Factor. I love the judges this year!

Loving: I job share so I work Mon- Wed. This week my principal has me going to a Thinking Maps workshop on Thursday and Friday so I switched my working days to Wed-Fri and so my awesome principal got me a sub for Monday and Tuesday. Yay!!

Thinking: I NEED glasses! My eyes are killing me and it's gotten to the point that I'm having constant headaches.

Wanting: Like I mentioned... I want to get more blogging done. I'm not ignoring my blog on purpose...... I promise.  I just need more hours in the day.  I am seriously open to any help in this area!

Needing: I need to shed my winter coat! This is fall y'all there is SO much good food! I need to lose so that I can gain! :)

Trick or Treat: My treat is chai tea with soy! Since this is fall ... I love all things pumpkin and apples!! That is why I need to shed my winter coat!! LOL

That's it friends! Thanks for reading.



  1. OOO I've always wanted to try chai tea, I might go and get some tomorrow!

    1. Oh yes, Erin! You've gotta try it with soy milk! YUMMMMMY!!!

  2. You've been missed! I love reading your blog and look for you on linky parties! Glad you're back!

    1. Awww thanks Sandy! Thank you for making my day! :)

  3. I love everything about fall too...especially pumpkins! I am in the same boat with blogging. I wish I could do it more, but I am a lump by the time I can actually sit and think about anything! I am trying to get better, so that's enough I think! We can all only do so much. :-)

    The Craft of Teaching

    1. Thank you for your encouraging words. That is what my hubby always tells me... that we can only do so much. I just don't know how these other teachers do it. I am "lumping" right along with you my friend. :)

My New Life and an Editable First Day of School Sign!

Hi Friends.

This next year I am starting a new chapter of my life. Ever since my kids reached the age where they began going to school, life kept getting busier and busier. Now that they are a bit older (ages 10,8,5) life is just CRAZY; sports, church, dinners on the run, taking kids to different practices, homework, projects, AHHHH!!!! I could not keep up! Last summer, my husband and I both agreed that we could not go on living like that. We did not like running on the hamster wheel. We wanted needed more family time. My husband works different hours than a normal "9 to 5" job so his day off are Fridays. My kids go to school on Fridays. See the problem? We had to make a change. We LOVE my husband's job so that wasn't changing. I LOVE teaching, so that wasn't changing either. We knew we wanted to kids to be home on Fridays so there was only one option. Change the way schooling looked. After 14 years of teaching in the classroom, I am taking a leave of absence to…

Celebration Week!!!

I'm OK. I'm alive!!

Yes, It's been a while since I've blogged. I think it's safe to say that I am just no good at keeping up with my poor little blog. I've come to terms with it. I am no longer in denial. (Holding candle in my hand) Hello, my name is Angela Linzay and I stink at keeping up with my blog.

Alright, now that we that out of the way I feel like we are much closer. :)

I have some very exciting news! This week is special to me for so many reasons. There is MUCH to celebrate....hence the title of this blog..."Celebration Week!" Here are 3 things that I am celebrating this week.

1. I was contacted about a week ago by Teachers Pay Teachers notifying me that I hit a milestone!!!! I began this journey about a year ago and NEVER imagined that I would be at this place at this time. I've truly been blessed and humbled to know that there are MANY amazing teachers out there that chose to spend their hard earned money to purchase my resources. I'…

Five for Friday

It's been a while Friends!

Today I am linking up with Doodle Bugs for her Five for Friday linky party.

I've been working on Depth and Complexity with my students and it has really taken their learning to the next level. Over the past couple of years, I've been going to USC to learn about teaching gifted students from Sandra Kaplan, the creator of Depth and Complexity. The truth is, these strategies work for ALL students and allows them to understand the content much better. My students actually love it!

We just had Open House not too long ago and it was so much fun! Here are some things from my Open House Unit  on TPT.  I've compiled 19 things over my 15 years of teaching that I love to do. It comes complete with templates and detailed instructions. If you need some new projects for your classroom, I'd love for yo…
