This PowerPoint lesson is the perfect activity before the Thanksgiving holidays. Students can follow directions to create their own Thanksgiving turkey using shapes in PowerPoint 2010. I created this activity for my 4th and 5th graders, but you can use it for younger or older grades depending on their experience level.

Tech Ideas

Each week I share different tech ideas with my teachers. My goal is to help them integrate technology into their classrooms without having to spend all their planning time searching for the perfect website or game. Now I want to share them with you!

I learned about View Pure at conference this past summer and wish I would have learned about it sooner. This site lets you enter the URL of a YouTube video and it will create a new link that doesn't include ads. You can copy and paste the link to a presentation or save it as a bookmark to view later. You can also save the "purify" button as a bookmark and clean up ads with just one click. 


I taught 2nd grade for 4 years and wish that I would have known about Go Noodle. You can sign up for free and get access to short videos that get your kids up and moving and are perfect for brain breaks. I love the simplicity of the site! Go to Go Noodle now and see how cool this site is!


I recently stumbled across a blog page that includes an amazing amount of interactive websites and games. The best part about this site is that the activities are organized by subject. I definitely recommend checking this out! Click here

Final Countdown......


With school just one week away I decided I needed to change some things up in my lab and I was not going to spend a lot of money!!!!! I went to the teacher store to get mavalus tape (the best tape ever) and ended up buying things I really didn't need, but hey it's really cute!

Last year I created these computer lab posters. I wanted to display them so I created my own bulletin board. I love how it came out. It is one of the first things I notice when I walk in the room. 

Last year I used this board to display technology articles. I realized that the kids didn't pay much attention to it so I spruced it up with my lab posters.

I love how this welcome board turned out. I don't have all my classes filled in because I am waiting on my schedule. The black chalkboard decor is my favorite this year.

Large Alphabet Flags

I needed a new bulletin board so..... Pinterest to the rescue! I love these cursor posters. They are great visuals for my students. I created this version so that I could share it.

I hope that the start of your school year is great! I hope to post more and share all my ideas with you!
