Spark Student Motivation Saturdays with Head Over Heels for Teaching:
A box was delivered to school on Friday.
What's in the box?
An iPad mini from our Donors Choose project!
What better way to get kids pumped and motivated to learn?
I love incorporatin' technology in my classroom and participatin' in my county's B.Y.O.D. program.
Not only do I integrate usin' devices in my lessons for researchin', respondin', etc.,
I also like to use them in my reward system.
If you haven't taken an opportunity to write a grant for materials in your classroom through Donors Choose, you are missin' out. There are so many things to choose from...not just technology. I'm a fan!
Saturday Snapshots with Run! Miss Nelson's Got the Camera:
My nephew turned 7 this week.
Jerm made the cake and I decorated with the trucks.
This was the aftermath of Orientation on Monday. Luckily, the boys and girls helped me sort and organize or I'd still be there doin' it. I am so thankful for such supportive families.
Sweet treats on the 1st day from my little rockstars. It definitely made the transition from
summer to school time easier.
This week I bounced into my pod bestie J.R.'s room to snap some shots. This year all of her students will be sittin' on these stability balls. If they all go missin' and end up in my room, it wasn't me! I plan on sneakin' into my other besties' room next week to take pics when they aren't lookin'...shh...don't tell them!
Love the colors in her room(blues, greens, gray, and pops of orange).
It's always so calm and soothin' when I walk in there.
Love her boards with fabric, ribbon, and tissue paper.
Love her board that she made to keep track of A.R. goals.
Washi tape, ribbon, and tissue paper on a white board.
A part of her readin' area & bookshelves.
Her beautiful Word Wall. Letters on scrapbook paper with ribbon hangin' down.
Lanterns with circle tissue paper hot glued on.
She was clearly more prepared for supplies than I was.
Too lazy to eat anythin' else some nights.
Got a new shirt today to prepare for some New Orleans Saints football.
I'm participatin' in ESPN's Fantasy Football again this year. I did really well last year, but I didn't win.
I'll be on two teams this year. Maybe that will help my chances!
That's about all I've been up to this week. Nothin' overly excitin'.
Sorry I don't have any cool sunset pics either.
