Vacations's been busy! In between doctor and dental visits, I've been catching up on a myriad of chores. Luckily we haven't been socked in with a big snow storm, so it's been easy to run around completing errands.
Today I found a fantastic giveaway at Primary Graffiti and I learned about a new piece of technology that would be the coolest thing in my classroom. Mrs. Saoud blogged about the now!Board and is offering a $100 gift card to Learning Resources. It can be used to offset the cost of a board or on any other Learning Resources product. I'm in! Just click on the button below to head over to her site to check it out.
I also registered for Everything's Primary at Virtual Teaching Expo. If you pre-register the price is discounted, and it's more than worth it when you see the free items in the Goodie Bag! I'm really looking forward to the presentations from Kimberly Gillow, Dana Richliew, Mor Zrihen and Mel D. It starts tomorrow!!! I'll be ready with coffee in hand.
In addition, I'm working on a new blog design for my blog. I'm aiming for a cleaner look, with fewer graphics to load in. It's oh, so fun but very time consuming. I can get lost in the specifics for hours but I thought it would be a nice way to celebrate having 100 followers (soon, I hope).
Monday will be back to sausage (see this post). I do love this time of the year in first grade. Many of the children are zipping along, reading is clicking into place, and we are rolling smoothly, for the most part. April vacation is now seven weeks away!
