|Of course, if this fat cat doesn't stop sitting on my laptop, I might not even get this post finished!|
Here's the plan:
Saturday Smorgasbord: Whatever pops into my head, teaching related or not!
Technology Tuesday: How I am using technology in my classroom.
Thoughtful Thursday: My thoughts on books I am reading, issues in education or what's happening in my classroom or school
Hopefully having a plan will get me fired up about blogging again!
So here are my ramblings for today!
- A friend I've know since elementary school has written a wonderful book based on her experiences as a kindergarten teacher. Check out The Book of Frank by Debbie Marsh. You will laugh a lot, maybe cry a little and definitely relate!
- I am obsessed with pasta lately! (Another New Year's resolution was to eat healthier, and I know that Paleo or low-carb, gluten free eating is all the rage, but I love my carbs!) Right before Christmas my husband and I went to dinner at a friend's house, and she had us all help make pasta. I was hooked, and a few days later I found myself the owner of a new KitchenAid mixer and the pasta making attachments. (When your husband says "You know you want it so go ahead and order it", you DO NOT hesitate. I couldn't get that baby in my Amazon cart fast enough!) I've tried both the fettuccine and spaghetti cutters and made some very good whole wheat pasta. Next up: ravioli.
- This year has been all about utilizing technology in my classroom. I am loving our new learning platform, Canvas by Instructure. I'll share more about it in a future post, but for now I just want to say it has been a great way to help my little ones access websites, view videos and complete workstation activities more independently. I've even been asked to become a teacher trainer for my district, and I am super excited!
Thanks for stopping by and see you Tuesday!
