Even during vacation we have to work...
Here is my granddaughter working on a flat Stanley project. 

At the same table was a 12 year old cousin trying to tell her that writing was boring and maybe she shouldn't do it.  I returned with "yea...cooking is boring, so maybe I won't cook any more during vacation."  Needless to say, I didn't hear another boring writing comment.

My building now has the new smartboard projectors that don't need a special board.  We are using dry erase boards, but even the wall will work...LOVE....LOVE...LOVE

One of the staff found a new website for interactive whiteboards, so all you others out there might find this helpful.

You do need to create an account, but it is worth it.
Happy-fun teaching in 2014

PBiS Rally for December

Our last day of school found many classrooms with parties and a PBiS pep rally.  4th graders were in charge of the skit.  The past few rallies have presented our expectations including the good and bad behavior.  I am still to be convinced what the example of the bad behavior helps...so with went with a rap form presentation.

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate...and Happy Holidays to others.  I'm off until the 6th, but will be working on student scales...according to Marzano and his student engagement.
