New Obsession!

First, congrats to Lisa and Jennifer for winning my first giveaway!!! I was so excited I had to pick two winners! Thanks to everyone who entered!

Just when I thought I was finished, I found an old to-do list in my notes on my iPhone, and realized I needed a new classroom rules poster. This took me of course to trusty Keynote (Power Point for Mac), where I made these...

I liked the blue, but I wasn't a fan of the fonts I had, so I went to and downloaded a bunch of new ones!

I ultimately decided on the green, because I have a blue border on my bulletin board, so I thought it would pop! better. I went online to find a place to print them, and I couldn't believe how expensive it was! Around $60 at Kinko's, and then I thought, I'll check Walgreens... less than $20 and only an hour later, and I had this!

It's great quality, a great price, and was ready in an hour. How much better can it get? I have been busy trying to decide what other posters I can make now, lol!

I was completely inspired by Kelly Gallagher after reading devouring all of his books at the beginning of the school year! I had the opportunity to go to a Kelly Gallagher workshop at Judson this spring, and it was absolutely amazing! He was so nice when I went up to him (I was terrified and starstruck), and even wrote "You're Welcome" on this piece of paper, because my students actually asked me to THANK HIM for changing the way we read novels in class.  Students + asked me + to say thank you to an author + about school stuff = UTOPIA! Here are some of my abbreviated notes from the day: His TOP Points: Kids should write 4X more than you can physically grade  Students suffer from word poverty. Must get students reading more in order to be exposed to vocabulary. We ne

Another Pinterest crafting project!

Look what I got!!! :) I will be creating this in the next few days  hours, and hopefully it will turn out as nice as the other ones I've seen online! Inspiration: Down the Learning Road It's not exactly the same, but I wanted one that was wider rather than tall. I got the organizer at Home Depot for $16.97! I'm thinking I'll mod podge it instead of paint it, but we'll see! What projects are you working on today?
