How is everyone doing? I will be attending a Title 1 workshop today... one that I don't even know if I got in to. It was said that the office was calling those who didn't get into the workshop, I didn't get a call so I am hoping that I am on the list. They had to turn a lot of people down because they were only hoping for 450 but got over 600 teachers requesting in... I guess that is the response you get when you offer teachers a STIPEND to come learn how to help their students better. So I have that for 2 days until about 5pm. Plus we have our school retreat on Thursday. I know I will just be plain exhausted by the time Friday rolls around.
Don't forget about The Polished Teacher and her HUGE giveaway...
Plus I missed my Clutter-Free Classroom post yesterday but make sure to check out her posts, hit refresh so you can grab some Flash Freebies!
Teacher Week @ Blog Hoppin'. Yesterday was Let's Talk About Me. How many times do you really get to talk about yourself when the school year rolls around? Well now is your chance to tell about yourself to the bloggers of Blogland and read about other teachers as well. Check out the schedule too so you know when to link up!
I just finished that STEM workshop last week and I have been looking for ways to incorporate it more on a kindergarten level in most of our upcoming SOLs. How do you incorporate STEM? (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Do you teach the other parts of the word STEM, other than science and math? I am looking forward to introducing my students to more of the engineering side of STEM this year while incorporating science and math too.
**I will choose a random winner on Friday, leave a comment with your email and the answer to this question: Name a technology that you use in your classroom but it has to be something that DOES NOT need to be plugged in... I will give you a hint, think of materials in the classroom. So I bet you are wondering what you are trying to win, huh?? Well if you can name one technology that you use that DOES NOT need to be plugged in or hooked to electricity, I will give the winner a copy of my new product, Farm Detective: Sight Words Edition. (see pics at top of post)
I can't wait to hear about all the "technology" you use in your classroom. Have a great day and the rest of the week... Enjoy1
