I am an empty nester and teacher with an addiction to decorating frugally. Whether it is decorating my classroom space or my home I want to create an environment that feels authentic and homey. I have been inspired by so many blogs this year, so I started this blog as a way of learning and sharing creatively on a budget! I hope I too can motivate and inspire others the same way I have been. I hope you join me on this journey and let me know you've stopped by.
This year at my school each teacher was issued an Ipad to use in the classroom. We have all been scurrying to squeeze every chance we can to find apps that embellish our curriculum. The BEST thing for most of us is You Tube! There are many times we need to use a book for a lesson and our library doesn't have the title we need. Not to fear-You Tube is here! They have nearly any book we need at our fingertips. LOVE it! Below are a few apps that I will continually post on Tuesdays. Please share any apps you have found to be helpful in your classroom!
Timed Reading k12- This is great for timed reading for every grade. I really like this one for practicing fluency.
ABC Print- Kids use their fingers to trace letters. Great visual and tactile sensory integration to writing!!
Math Drills- This has all levels in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division for all grade levels. Kids love this!
