Dear Blogging World.....I have been living such a busy life

So, my life has been crazy....hence why I haven't blogged. I finally feel like I can return back to my normal teaching busy self. I have nothing to post as of now but I am just letting you know, I am still alive. We have been working on our money and weather unit and the students are loving it. Today, we wrote to our parents about our favorite cloud and what it looks like. They have been asking for days to do this but with a minimum day, week it is hard to fit it all in.

I will be posting photos of math and cloud letter writing tomorrow. I also finally have time to create again so I am going to be busy, busy, busy making things for my class.

So if you have every had a crazy couple of weeks and feel like you just can't keep up...feel free to share! Actually please share!

So the other day my teacher friend came up with such a cute idea for a little St. Patty's Day gift. Today my job was to make the little tags to go on the bags filled with Lucky Charms cereal. Here are the tags and when I finishing putting the little goodie bags I will post a picture. Click here for the tags.

Google Forms for Quick Checks

Earlier this week I completed grading a large test my students finished. I was shocked to see that many students had difficulty on the story about reality and fantasy. In response I retaught and discussed with my students this skill. So...I have created a google form which is like an online test to check there understanding....this means no paper waste. The next amazing thing is that is also sorts the data from the form into a spreadsheet so it is easy to identify which students struggled with certain questions. I have included the link to my form so that you may see what I am doing technology wise in my classroom and have a better understanding for google forms in googledocs.
