So New Year comes with expectations and big plans. Here are some of mine:
1. I am joining the ranks of technology!
They are, as we speak, (well almost) installing in my class a
document camera!Okay I know some of you are going So what! BUT I have already gone through a box and a half of transparencies this year!
Okay so its not a smart board but,
I also got a new projector (I never had one before)
AND a new computer, which is a big deal in itself!
My old one took almost the entire day to boot up! NOT very useful. HA. I have been using my laptop for lesson plans, grades and blog stuff along with other things. But that doesn't help my kiddos have computer time. They are going to be so excited!
2. I also got a Nook for the class!
Interestingly, the school didn't load any stories on it?
and the Aps on it are for older kids.
So I am looking for some good
cheap inexpensive okay free, preferred,
Aps and stories to load.
What are some that you use? Let me know.
3. On my personal list ( but still related to school stuff...isn't that always the way with us teachers?) I want to learn how to do the fancy stuff to make my blog better. I know just enough HTML to get me into BIG trouble and then not enough to go back. LOL!
4. And I am joining the rest of you on trying to make wiser food choices and get into a exercise routine...as soon as I finish off the Christmas cookies and find a new pair of sneakers and... STOP! ...
Okay no more excuses!
Even if it is raining outside??
I have jumped in to lesson planning in an attempt to not be behind going back to school. I have started getting use to this FREE time. I have added an activity to my stores for the letter "g".
