I’m relying on a favorite prompt today, but with a twist. As I wrote this, I thought about what a “Currently” post would usually look like on a Tuesday afternoon as compared to what I’m actually doing. Normally, at this time of the day,I would be in the process of finishing up with a group of second graders. So, I drafted two responses, one that describes what I am actually doing, as well as a response that describes what I would be doing at school.
Currently, I am…
listening to…a classical station with my Sirius XM streaming radio. I love to listen to classical music when I’m working on something that requires focused attention.
watching…the cursor blink as I think of words to write.
drinking…water. I’m trying to work on my sweet tea habit, which has been a challenge!
eating…nothing right now, but thinking about the jar of M&Ms in the kitchen. Where is my willpower?
needing to…go downstairs and walk on the treadmill.
thinking about…that jar of M&Ms and sweet tea:)
wanting to…get back onto a regular routine. Due to the weather, we haven’t been in school since Thursday and before that, we had three days with late starts. I’m ready to get back to a normal schedule!
feeling like…I haven’t accomplished much during the past few days.
Currently, I should be…
listening to… chairs being pushed up against the table.
watching…my second graders line up at the door.
drinking…a sip of water in between groups.
eating…nothing, but thinking about what’s left in my snack drawer.
needing to…make a few notes about the second grade group.
thinking about…the next student I’ll see.
wanting to…make sure that I do my absolute best everyday!
feeling like…it has been a productive day!
