Updates and Joy!

I know it's been a while since I've written a blog post. Here are my reasons!

1. I have a big post coming up soon! So my brain has been obsessing over that.

2. Today was Guided Reading and 6 Traits Writing training at my school. I can't wait to start those! I especially know that guided reading will be fun. I love small group work with kinders. They always have the funniest comments ever.

3. My new video tutorial will be up on Saturday morning, so get your vote in before 7pm on Friday so that you can have a say in which one I record on Friday evening.

4. Life has been normal (which means BUSY!)

I left off a fifth reason just to bother some of you more perfectionist blog followers. :) I hope you don't unfollow me for that! Honestly, I couldn't come up with a good fifth reason other than the fact that not much is new. It's summer time, so my teaching brain is just waiting for next year. I can't get into my classroom to decorate yet because the lady who taught in that classroom still hasn't moved out yet....and I'm SO ready to move in!

Here's the few updates I do have for you:

1. Joyful Update - My DIPLOMA came in the mail yesterday. I pranced around the house and couldn't put it down. It's amazing to me that I now have my Bachelor of Arts Magna cum Laude! :D

2. Vote! - My poll is up on my Facebook page and on the sidebar on the blog! Make sure you vote for either Storybird, Xtranormal, Glogster, or Erly. Also, comment below if you have a request for a technology tutorial of any kind! I'd love your feedback so I know your needs!

3. Go participate in my sweet friend Maria's giveaway and follow her page! She has such amazing ideas. If you like my blog, you'll love hers too! She reached 300 followers and is giving away a 25$ gift card to the best store on Earth....Target!

4. I was contacted by two people recently! One person was one of the FOUNDERS of BEECLIP! He messaged me on Google Plus and commented on my video tutorial saying that he enjoyed it! I was blown away by the fact that he watched it. The blogging world is too cool. Also, I was contacted by Technology Tailgate and asked to be a contributor to the new blog effort! It's going to be technology central for all blog posts relating to tech. I can't wait to be a part of it. Go check it out at:

You all are amazing. I'm blown away daily by the fact that you all decided to follow my blog! You truly have blessed my life, and I hope that my posts can bless yours as well.

  3. Congrats on the diploma! I love 6 Traits but in my school it has fallen by the wayside because it was replaced with a heavy emphasis on Write From the Beginning in K-2! I miss those days of 6 traits!

  4. Wahoo for your diploma...that is awesome! =)

    I would love for you to visit again. I think I have shared lots more *freebies* since you stopped by last time. =)

    When my brain is ready to think more, I am going to read more about all of the amazing techno things you are sharing. =)
