Today we are throwing a big, humongous bash to celebrate YOU!
Last year we blogged about our favorite non-school related things, this year we have decided that we will share with you our favorite school things! So here we go:
For years, my team and I, have "wished upon" a membership to PebbleGo. We tried the free trial and saw the great possibilities in terms of science and social studies. When the free trial was up we were as bummed as can be... Sadsville! PebbleGo is an outstanding resouce for reserachers in the primary grades, juts like mine. The website has 5 databases: animals, science, biographies, dinosaurs, and social studies. Each text is enriched with spoken-word audio, text highlighting and audio/video media. PebbleGo offers a perfect balance of technology, content area, and literacy! It is a must-have for any research unit.
I try to be so organized... I do try. It brings balance to my life.
These are some of the things I do to keep a healthy balance (because believe me, I want to be as present in the life of my children as possible and being "somewhat" of a good teacher takes a lot of work):
* I order my groceries online
* I plan most of our family's meals
* I have a cleaning lady that comes twice a month
*I have three wonderful men in my life who are my world, and help me a lot.
* I laugh and don't sweat the small stuff.
Now, now... I love some serious organization in the classroom especially when it comes to guided reading.
And a few months ago, my NC friend Monica from NC Teacher Chick introduced me to Clever container.
And as usual, this is by far my absolute most "favorite" favorite!
When times are dark and I want to quit, I can't. When I don't want to be strong and I want to let go, I can't.
Because. Of. Them.
The Lord blessed me with these two, and they are my all.
