Looking to integrate a little technology into your lessons? TodaysMeet is an online tool that allows you to have a backchannel discussion with your students.

The best way I can describe it is instead of students using a whiteboard and pen to interact with a lesson, you use TodaysMeet with computers and students can engage in a "real time" discussion. The teacher gives a question and students type in their responses on TodaysMeet. The students and the teacher instantly see on their computer the responses. TodaysMeet is very easy to set up and there is no email required to set it up.

Math problems of the month

This website was shared with me today by another teacher. It has a lot of different problems of the month  by content standards. It's worth checking out.

I Make Stuff Pinkback Button by Barrel of Monkeys

I've mentioned before in previous posts, I like to be crafty in my free time. I started a craft blog but I haven't shared it with too many people because I wasn't ready. If you have an interest in scrapbook type crafts or Project Life, please check out my craft blog.

Currently March

I'm linking up with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade for her monthly currently.

My daughter really enjoys watching clips from Ellen on Youtube. She's a funny lady! I loved her in Finding Nemo. After two months of not feeling so great, I can finally say I see the end of the tunnel with this illness. My chest pain is finally feeling better although it still hurts first thing in the morning but it's nothing like how it use to be. I'm so very grateful! My Spring Break is at the end of March but it's been on my mind. I could sleep in everyday! By sleeping in, if I could just sleep until 8:00am that would be good enough! The like, love, and hate was a little challenging since I had to choose items that started with the letter "C" but it worked in the end. I do admit, I have a small addiction to purses. It doesn't even have to be a designer brand. I just love purses and bags in general. I do like Coach purses and although they are pricey, I have to admit they are made to last. I think I have blogged about my love for coffee in the past. I had a tough time with hate. I like things to be in control so I think craziness really does drive my a little looney.
