Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!....Currently directions

 My school began our Dr. Seuss unit yesterday. Before the bell rang to begin school, the principal led everyone into singing "Happy Birthday" to Dr. Seuss. It was sweet! After my kiddos took test, my room was all about Cat in the Hat. We read the book, watched a small video of it, and made a few things...Each grade is having a "Dr. Seuss Door Contest". The winners get an ice cream party. My door matches my neighbor's door. Here's the before pics. We plan on adding a few things to it next week. I will post after pics soon.

I added a new item to my TPT store. It has 10 more, 10 less, word problems, and a two digit addition page.  It's $1 if you are interested..
I finally made a Farley's Currently. If you need directions on doing this with a MacBook, here goes.
*Go to Farley's Blog.
*Save blank image into your documents.
*Go to Keynote. 
*Drag pic from documents.
*Use text box to insert words.
*Go to file and click Export.
*There will be PPT, PDF, and images. Choose images.
*Save as-March Currently-pic

You're done!  You should now be able to insert the image on your blog. This is my first time actually getting this to work. It worked for me. Hope this helps! :)
