After a long long hiatus, I am yet again, hoping to get back into my blog.  Had an idea over the past few weeks.....what would your thoughts be on a website where teachers can find AND share free web resources that they use in the classroom.  Something like a Pinterest strictly for online educational resources and activities.  I am sure it is out there.  If you have seen something like this, direct me to the site.  I want to make this a simple simple simple format that can be navigated by vets and rookies alike.  What are your thoughts on my venture?

Vibram FiveFingers Bikila - Men's - Blue In Size: 44 (Google Affiliate Ad)


Okay, seriously..............check this one out.  A colleague saw this in action at a conference and shared it with me.  I have downloaded it and am in the process of learning how beneficial this could be in the classroom.  Use your imagination on this one.......endless possibilities.  Be sure to watch the TED video on the righthand side.

COMMENTS PLEASE!!!  Anxious to hear some opinions on this one.

Talk about slacker!!!!!  I am returning to my blog after WAY TO LONG away!  Hope everyone is doing well and ready for the holidays!

Water cycle Wheel

Pretty cool "wheel" to help students remember the water cycle.  Not the MOST educational, but it matches most of the diagrams out there that you will find.  I plan to have my students label each step after they create the wheel.  Below is the link straight to the site where I found it (pic below takes you to my newly formed Pintrest page.
