Well this was certainly a very short week. Unfortunately it came with a whole lot of rain and flooding. I hope everyone made it through the harsh weather in good condition. Because of the weather, I know everyone is very busy trying to catch up from missing two days of school. Don’t panic; even though we missed a couple days, I know our students will still be fine because of the great teachers they have.
As the year is coming to an end. Please note, the week of May 16 will be the last week the CITS will be on campus on our regular campus visits. During the final weeks of the school year we are busy preparing for INTERACT and prepping trainings for the start of next school year. During this time, if you are in need of something, please e-mail me. I will do my best to get back to you in a timely fashion.
At a Glance:
Flippity.net – website
A website shared with me earlier this week. Easily turn a Google Spreadsheet into a Set of Online Flashcards and Other Cool Stuff. While I haven’t had an opportunity to dive deep into this site; all its possibilities seem pretty good. The site features demos, instructions, and templates for every activity.
48 Ultra-Cool Summer Sites for Kids and Teachers – website
As we close in on the summer months, we are always looking for new ideas and things to do. This website is a few years old, but the sites and ideas listed are still great. Take a look at the different resources available. Many of these could easily be used within the classroom as well.
Tech Tip – Unclaimed Money
Did you know there are billions of dollars in money being held by the state and federal government that is owed to people? Want to find out if you are owed money? Check out the Unclaimed Money website. When I first looked I found out that there was about $40 waiting for me to claim. Another teacher in the district found out she was owed several hundred dollars when I showed her this site. Showing this to neighbors and friends, they have found significate money owed to them as well. Take a look. There might be money waiting for you.
