Classroom Accomplishments!

I have been working way too hard on things for my classroom lately and I thought I'd share them with you!

First off, I have fallen in love with iBooks!  The mother of a girl in my class gave me $60 worth of iTunes gift cards to use on our class set of iPads and I chose to buy books with it!  The only downfall is that the books can only be shared with ten devices, so the books are only on ten of my thirty iPads.  Oh well, it's still super cool.  Here are 3 of the books I bought...

The Sign of the Beaver (our classroom read aloud)


 The Homework Machine


 Diary of a Wimpy Kid #1

My kids are really enjoying reading on the iPads and I am glad that I've finally found a great way to buy books for them! :-)



I have been trying to implement math centers in my classroom lately.  Not during a specific 'center time' but during our remediation time.  I am able to let the students do the center activity so I can work with individual kiddos that need help.  Today we played a fun game where they had to compare decimal numbers, kind of like 'war'.  I am still working on my students working quietly with each other.  They tend to yell.  A lot!!





That's all for now!  It's time for this momma to Pinterest and get to bed! :-)

  1. What a fantastic gift! The Homework Machine is a great read! I read it for the first time with my students last year and found it to be great for making connections!

    1. Thanks for the follow! It was a suggested read for our new Language Arts curriculum, integrated with Social Studies. So far it's really good and my students are super into it! :-)
