Listening: I'm kind of obsessed with HGTV shows. They're my go-to while working on lessons or products! I get to live vicariously through all these people who buy great houses and/or renovate. I'd love to be able to buy my "dream" house one day!
Loving and Wanting: It has gotten so cold here! I'm still refusing to turn on the heat, so I'm bundling up and eating a lot of soup! I have these fantastic ingredients sitting on the counter for my dinner - I'm making myself finish my prep for this week, as well as this blog post, before I make my super-easy, super-delicious miso soup! Nothing like soup as a motivator!
Needing: Our October unit is "America Long Ago" - I've been kind of uninspired as of yet (it doesn't help that I think they should do this unit in November, since it features Squanto and the Pilgrims, etc...). I need to finalize plans. This may be a "light" month in using our curriculum (which I am lucky to be able/allowed to do at my school) since we have a lot of other "stuff" going on at school this month, anyway.
Trick or Treat: I am in the middle of three or four different, new products right now, so I did not create any new 'treat' - but here is an "oldie but goodie" freebie from me - a math center activity to go with the book "The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything!"

I love this monthly linky - go ahead and check out other bloggers' October thoughts here:
