Wow! Has it really been two years since I've blogged here? How does time slip away so quickly? My goal is to to blog regularly through the year, so we shall see how that goes. I will strive to do my best!
So...I'm going into my nineteenth year in the public school system, with this being the third year for me in fourth grade. I adored third grade....guess that's why I stayed fifteen years before switching grades. I taught second grade two years, but I was ready to move up then. With a fourth grade position available, luckily I snagged it! I'm excited to see what this year in fourth grade has to offer!
As summer comes to a close (I start back in two days, students in nine...) I have begun to gear up for the upcoming year....you know...visiting all my favorite websites, shopping at the teacher store, looking for deals, and of course clothes shopping! lol
So, for my first blog here in two years, I thought I'd just share some of my favorite things for preparing for back to school...so grab a drink and let's get started...
I have been frequenting ProTeacher since 1998! It is an amazing place to be to get new ideas, make friendships, ask questions, vent and much, more! Check it out ::HERE:: if you've never visited! Be sure to sign up...it's FREE!
INTO THE BOOK
Ok...so this one is my new found favorite!
This site is for both teachers and students! There are tons of resources, games, songs, books, lesson plans, and more for lots of reading strategies. You can be sure I'll be putting this site to good use!
These are some of my favorite apps to use with my students. I especially love Google Classroom! If you have access, you must check it out if you haven't already!
What a FUN way to review, practice, or assess what you've taught! The kids love it, and they can sign in anonymously!
So what sites or apps are your frequenting as a new school year approaches?
