Spring Break Sale!

It's Spring Break, so I figured it's a perfect time to throw a sale! Woohoo!!! All of my products will be 15% off from Tuesday, April 22nd - Thursday, April 24th!  It's a great time to grab some fun end of the year activities! 

It's crazy how fast the year comes to an end after this vacation.  Yikes! There is always so much to do and so little time! Projects, field trips, end of the year author's breakfast, and of course assessments, assessments, and more assessments!  Well at least that's how I always feel! Between DRA's, DIBELS, the end of the year math test, portfolios- the list goes on! In the mix of all this, I am always looking for the kids to have a memory book before they leave me so I figured I'd create one!  If you are interested, check out my new End of Year Memory Books for Kindergarten, First, and Second Grade!  

 Have a great week!!!

Technology Tuesday!

I'm sure a lot of you have heard of and/or use BrainPOPJr. in your classroom, but if you haven't you should totally convince your school to buy a subscription! I LOVE these little movies and of course the kids do too! They are really kid friendly so it makes the concepts super easy to understand.  I like showing these movies at times before teaching a concept or even after as a review.  The kids get a kick out of the videos when they have already learned the concept and feel that they are real "experts."  Cuties!! The characters in the videos are great (Annie & Moby the robot)!  I have to admit I definitely get a chuckle out of Moby- silly robot!!  

You should check out the website and look around.  If you type in "Free Movies" you can see a few different ones so you get an idea if you think it's worth it or not.  There is so much more to the website too! There are activities, lesson ideas, games, drawing and writing activities, plus more! You can have your students take a quiz at the end of the video (paper or online).  I just have the students read the questions and we answer them as a class.  I just love that there is a movie for almost every concept I teach. I swear the kids sometimes listen more to the robot than me! haha! 

Here's a sample BrainPOP movie from You Tube on butterflies:

Do you use BrainPOP Jr. in your classroom?!  
Happy Tuesday!!!
