#1 My iPhone camera isn’t saving pictures. It may have something to do with the fact that I have about 3000 pictures on it, but it is SO difficult to blog without it…I never have my point and shoot on me 🙂 I apologize for my lack of classroom posts!
#2 Oh baby Jesus, wedding planning is time consuming. I am lucky to have the best mama and best bridesmaids ever, but it’s really difficult to make myself do something boring for school when I can be designing engagement party invites.
#3 Remember when I used to teach Social Studies? Seriously. It was before I blogged. I actually really enjoyed it. My dear fiancé, D, has his masters in History. I have all of these ideas for cool Social Studies lessons, but I need him to help me with all the facts because he is a genius. We worked together on our very first super awesome, Everything you need to Teach About the 2012 Presidential Election packet. It has 25 awesome pages of activities for upper elementary and middle school students to get involved with the election and really find out what the candidates stand for. As cheesy as this sounds, one of the ONLY things I remember from 5th grade (besides a heinous teacher and an AMAZING student teacher) is the unit we did about the presidential election. Bill Clinton was running against Bob Dole hahaha. I seriously remember so much about the electoral college and the election process. Anyway, check this product out if you want to teach about the upcoming election.
#4 I have been also working on some more of these mixed up equations activities. Click on the links below to see my favorites 🙂
Ah! I absolutely love this one. My kids are LOVING it!
#5 Ok I think that is it for now. This week is crazy busy, but hopefully next week calms down a little
#6 O yeah, want to win a free copy of the presidential pack? Or a mixed up equations pack? Leave me a comment with how you incorporate the presidential election into your curriculum– any grade level or subject…and I’ll pick a winner…or two…or three.. or whatever I feel like!
