Great Websites

Good Morning,

I just want to share a few websites with you that I think our great!!! I love this website. If you are not pinning yet you will soon be an addict!!! I love discounts and coupons and this link will tell you where you can get teachers discounts. i think this is pretty fabulous!!! I ordered a planner from this site a few weeks ago and it is fabulous. If you need to get organized I would recommend shopping here. It is a bit pricy, but I am so pleased with my purchase!!! Last week Robert Brooks came and talked at my school .  He was a great motivational speaker. This is a link to his website where he has multiple articles for you to read.

I hope you all have a fabulous day!!!

Pick me Jar

One of my new favorite things is the "pick me jar" I recently made. It is a jar that has all of our boys class numbers in it on Popsicle sticks. We use this jar when we ask the boys questions ; so we know that everyone gets a turn. This way we do not have to worry about one student being called on constantly or another student never getting a turn. It was very easy to make. Here is what I did ...
1. take any jar you have at your house and clean it out ( I used a spaghetti sauce jar)
2. spray paint the lid
3. cut scrapbook paper to fit the jar and glue it on the jar(our room is monkey themed so I chose monkey paper)
4. write numbers or names on sticks( I chose numbers so I could use them year after year)
5. start using your" pick me jar" and never worry about whose name you have called on again!!

Have a great day!!!

My very first blog

So, I picked my profile picture for a reason because I want my blog to be like we were sitting down for coffee and I am telling you about my day.  I hope my days  will make you laugh, make you think more creatively, and inspire you to do what you truly love. I am very blessed because teaching is what I love ,and what I believe God has called me to do.  Some days I will tell you about my adventures in the classroom, and believe me there are plenty of those since I teach kindergarten to twenty boys. Other days, I will share pictures or links of what we are doing currently. I hope you are all having a great day and will join me again in Teacher Talk.
