What's On Your Desk? Linky Party for December

Life on a cart is not easy. It can be depressing when you feel like you have no home base in the school building. That is why I was so excited last month: My advisor was able to find me a space to sit inside a workroom! Now I have a little office carved out where I can do my planning. 

I am so happy to have a desk I can call my own. It inspired me to create this linky party, "What's On Your Desk?" 

For this linkup we can share what interesting books, documents, and decorations we have on our desks to represent what's going on in our teaching at the present time. 

*Thanks to Krista Wallden of Creative Clips for the clipart used in this graphic.*

This is what's currently on my BRAND NEW desk:

  • Decorations: a wedding photo of my hubby and myself that always makes me smile, and a "teacher" wordle that I received as a gift last year
  • A laptop 
  • Spotlight on Music Animated Listening Maps
  • The Skillful Teacher textbook by Jon Saphier. My principal has asked me and another teacher to lead an after school PD session next week on the concept of Effective Effort, so I am brushing up on the information I learned when I took a Skillful Teacher class last fall.
So, what's on your desk? To join the linky party, follow these steps:
  1. Save the "What's On Your Desk?" graphic to your computer.
  2. Include the graphic and link to this post in your blog post.
  3. Post a picture of your desk (if possible) or current workspace with a description of the items.
  4. Submit your blog here to be included in the linky party. 


  1. I might link up, though I'm embarrassed to show my desk. It looks like my room did growing up. 30 projects all going on at once :)

    1. Hey I linked up and mine looks like a bomb went off - as it always does! It is what it is!
