Starting a New Quarter

Posted: October 19, 2014 in Uncategorized

Well, I’ve been teaching 9 weeks here in Oklahoma. It’s been a great year so far of learning in my classroom.┬áStarting this next quarter, I’m going to be having students logging onto Google Classroom and begin to have lessons on there as well as starting the students in creating.

In September I set up a DonorsChoose project asking for 2 Chrome Books to be used in my classroom. With the help of a few donors and also Sonic’s Limeades for Learning, we now have the two Chrome Books to use.

Starting this week I am going to be trying some small group and stations work in my classroom. Students will be playing games to help learn adding/subtracting integers, watching videos on the computer and creating addition and subtraction problems to share with each other. I feel that having the computers will help students to work in small groups and be able to create.

Here’s to a new nine weeks!


10 People Better Than Me

Posted: October 18, 2014 in Uncategorized

This morning while catching up on my Feedly, I find this blog by Craig Badura. He wrote about how Bob Dillon┬áchallenged him to think about 10 people who do their job better than you. It got me thinking about others who have the same job (or similar) as myself and how they do their job better than me. First, it’s been over a month since I’ve blogged, which points out I’m not doing the best.

Here is my list of ten people. Thank you for challenging me each day as I read through my Twitter feed as well as my Feedly.

Continue to do the great things that you are doing and continue to challenge me to be a better educator and learner.
