Are any of you experiencing "the craziness" this time of year??!!! I feel like I'm in it full swing! We have state testing next week, tons of paperwork, ARDs, RTI (and any other acronym you want to throw in there). It's also that time of year where changes are coming with people moving around or leaving! To say it has been stressful is an understatement. I actually have the opportunity to POSSIBLY move grade levels! I'm excited and scared at the same time! Third grade is all I've ever known, and the thought of doing something different makes me so nervous! However, I would love a change of pace and I would also like to have experience in more than just one grade level.  Change is just so scary, but it can be so rewarding, you know?

Anyways, enough about me and the stress!! I updated my Lucky Lengths measurement packet. I initially created it with a St. Patrick's Day theme, but I decided to change it up so it can be used all year long! You can see it here in my TpT store. It is the exact same packet with different graphics:) I hope you enjoy it!

Hi Katy,

I totally know what you mean about the craziness this time of year. What grade are you possibly moving to?? I'm a third grade teacher too and this is the only grade I've 'officially' taught...Prior to getting this position I've always thought of myself as a kindergarten teacher but there were never any openings. Now there is and like you, I'm scared and not sure if I want to move! I'm looking forward to hearing more about your decision and where you are next year. Good luck and I know that you will do great whatever grade you choose :)

Changing grade levels is certainly scary, but led me to where I love to be most. I had taught 1st for 12 years and was terrified when I was asked to teach 3rd! It didn't take long to wonder "What was I thinking for 12 years?" lol I'm a believer that you get out of it what you put into it...so wherever you go, I'm sure the kids need you and you will make it happen! :-) Testing starts for us next week too! ROUGH isn't it??? My kids are worn out already and we haven't even started. I'm doing something CRAZY with them on Friday though...I'll post pics and news this weekend. SWING on over and say hi or grab some freebies sometime. Take care & best of luck! Michelle

I am experiencing the craziness here myself. I know the end of the school year will be here quickly, and I still have much more content to go over! Well, like every year, I always find a way to squeeze everything in, and I'm sure you'll do the same. :)
