I've decided I'm a bad blogger. I never know what to write about. I'm sure my life updates aren't too exciting but what else is there to say on here?! I have three followers - including myself! If you read and don't follow, please follow so I feel less like a loser talking to myself!
Last Friday was a day off school for the kiddos but of course, I had a teacher work day. It was centered around technology so we had a bunch of classes we could choose to take. For elementary, there weren't many options. I ended up taking a class about how to use the FLIP camera in the classroom, a class on SMARTboards, and a class on teacher web pages. Nothing too exciting. I did learn of a valuable resource for SMARTboard lessons: http://exchange.smarttech.com/search.html?m=01 This website has a TON of teacher-created SMARTboard lessons. I am not fortunate enough to have a board in my own room but these can also be used on the computer. Our school has a laptop cart so I am considering letting kids do some of the interactive lessons on the laptops....should be fun :) While I was at technology "training", I had my hubby go and buy me the magnetic letters I had been wanting for weeks. A new teacher store opened in town and had these 50% off for their grand opening sale - yay!
We've had some issues with a critter in the backyard. A month or so ago, we found some huge holes that someone had dug near the side of our house. I caught the culprit today and he wasn't shy at all...just feasting on fallen birdseed! (Sorry for a picture of a picture...I was too lazy to find the U/L cord for our camera!)
