TpT Teacher Appreciation Sale!

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!


How is everyone doing? We have about three and a half weeks left in the school year, and it has certainly been a whirlwind since I've come back from maternity leave! We're using the Digi-ISN's almost daily in class, and it's going so well, I almost can't believe it! Are you ever shocked when lessons/units you plan work?

The most convenient thing is that even when we don't have laptops, I can print off the one or two worksheets we need and put it in the ISN for safekeeping!

Here's an example. We didn't have laptops due to testing, so I printed these off and voila!


We're reading Night in eighth grade, and The Little Prince in seventh grade, and novel studies are my absolute favorite unit for teaching theme and characterization. I love having students study the changes characters make throughout a novel!







In the rest of my seventh grade block, we are studying and analyzing poetry, and it's been a real adventure getting them to dig deeper into some of the poems. I love when they unlock the meaning, it's such a cool moment.


Other than that, I spend most evenings up all night with baby, so I'm dragging most days, but luckily I have an awesome group of students who I definitely missed while I was on leave!

Are you interested in a digital classroom next year? Check out some of my resources during the sale on TpT!

  1. Great thoughts here! I love what you did with the poem in the last picture. How are you projecting the poem onto the white board? I currently have a TV as a projector and really want to have something that can project onto my white board so I can add to it like you did here. Thanks! Autumn
