Amazing Giveaway

Wow. If there ever was a giveaway to go enter it would be this one. Until I have one here of course :) There are so many prizes to be won. I have already entered myself so now it is your turn. How great would it would it be to head back to school with a few prizes to take along?

Organizing and Storing Cards

I was super excited to finally get my order from Really Good Stuff today. My favorite things are the plastic card holders! Yay no more ripped card boxes or missing cards (hopefully). Please add a comment to let myself and others know how you keep your cards in order and all together?

I am trying to figure out how to add Google Documents to my blog and if it works you will benefit ! Click on the picture and please let me know if it takes you to the other free worksheets :)

Technology in the Classroom

There are so many different websites out there that look like they could be useful in the classroom but lets be honest, who has the time to explore all of them and find the best. Well now you don't have to. A fellow blogger has started a linky party for useful websites. Teachers are going to add links to their favorite useful website. Check it out and save yourself some time!!!

50 Followers on FaceBook!!!!

So I was surprised when I woke up this morning and saw that I am now over 50 followers on FaceBook so for the next 20 minutes my best selling item on TpT is FREE!!!!!!! I am sure many people will be at work this morning and might not be able to see this so if I don't get 30 downloads in the 20 minutes I will put it free again this evening.
 Head on over there to find the link to the free product :)

I Love Great Deals

After dinner I went to Staples to have a look around for some great deals and WOW did I ever find them. Duotangs were on for 10 cents each. I was only allowed to buy 20 so I think I will go back tomorrow. Coil notebooks were on for 15cents, Four exercise books for 25cents and packages of paper (15 sheets) for only 19cents. After buying the maximum that I was allowed I walked away only spending just over $7. Now that is a great deal! The sale is on until Aug 10th so I know I will be going back to stock up.
This lead me to wonder..... Is it better to have students bring their own school supplies or for me/you buy the supplies that you really want your students to have and then later collect the money from parents? I love it when my students all have the same supplies so then I can have all my mat duotangs one color and the science ones another. For some reason parents consistently buy novelty duotangs and it makes it hard to organize. What are your thoughts on this?
After many months of wondering if I should create a blog like many other teachers I decided that it was something I would like to try out. So here goes.......
It has been a learning experience creating this site and I think I am finally happy with how it looks. I am sure I will tweak it here and there as time goes by but I guess that is the fun of entering the blogging world.
Join me as I share strategies, lesson ideas, tales from the classroom, useful links, and many more things.
