Technology!!! OMG

I had a great time the other week at the tech conference in Austin.  There are so many cool new things to learn and experiment with.  My goal next year is to learn how to code better so I can create a game or app.  Does anyone create their own games for their class??  My main problem??  How to find the time.  I guess I will get it accomplished eventually.  Below are some new free apps and a great free website.

Craft Day 2

Some colleagues and I met again today to work on crafty things for our classrooms.  We really liked to solo cup tags as posted previously but they were a little difficult to keep flat and some ended up a little rippled.  This time we created new tags using pony bead and they worked out a lot better.  They are very durable and cute.  See below!!

What is going on Next Year!!

So everyone is telling me I am crazy and I probably am, but I will be teaching Kindergarten again next year and now I am also taking on coaching Varsity Cheerleaders!!!  I know,  I must definitely teach in small town to have such totally opposite jobs.   But somehow I will pull it off!!!  I am really looking forward to a new challenge.  I have been super busy working on everything.  It has already been a little bit more so of a challenge than I thought but I am working on getting everything in order.  There is a lot that goes into it but I am hoping to get most of it done this summer.  So wish me luck and I let you know how it is working out very soon!!
Congratulations to Tonia @ Mrs. Vento's Kindergarten 
and to Kelly @ Mrs. Brown's Kindergarten
I will be sending your Kinder Readiness Packet and a surprise shortly.
Thanks to everyone who participated on my blog and Teacher Notebook site.

Getting Back to Work

It has been a pretty tough year so far.  And I was hoping I could recoup at Christmas Break but for the first half I was sick and then the rest of my family got sick too!!  I really didn't feel ready to come back but things are getting better!!  I have seen lots of improvement in my kiddos although behavior is still an issue!!  Boys will be boys (I guess) and I have plenty in my classroom this year!!  It has been a challenge and I don't feel like I am getting as much done as last year!  But we will keep moving forward.  I have been looking for new blogs to follow lately and a few are now having giveaways and here they are:
