Teachers Pay Teachers Sale!

Working on administering DRA's for the 3rd and 4th graders at school. It is a long process, but the reward of seeing their improvement is awesome! We began this year with the majority of students being below grade level in reading. We end the end with the majority of students being on or above grade level. The teachers have done an incredible job with all the changes in curriculum that has been "thrown" at them this year. Great Job! Our year is winding to a close- 7 school days remaining. It is so hard to believe that it is almost over. We are used to having to make-up snow days, but with the warm winter we don't have any to add-on to the end of the year. YEAH! Teacher Appreciation Week is this week and Teachers Pay Teachers is hosting a sale and so am I! Items in my store are 10% off and then TpT is also taking a percentage off your purchases using the code:TAD12 Find my store by following this link:

Ozark South MAP Video

My hometown of Ozark, MO is showing up on You Tube with a video from Ozark South Elementary! Their principal, Ryan Knight sings their own version of "Dynamite" with the help of faculty, staff and students! The video is geared around the state's MAP testing that is currently taking place in Missouri schools. What an awesome way to get the students excited and motivated for the assessments! Share this and enjoy!

Teachers Pay Teachers

Wow!  Have you been to this site yet?  Teachers can list lesson plans, activities, power points, etc for sale (to download).  They get the money for their efforts and you get fabulous ideas from actual classroom teachers. I signed up to sell plans in November 2011 and didn't really see much activity until they had a Leap Day Sale on February 29.  Since then my sales have been steady and I keep adding more products.  I have theme units, math activities, art plans and art power points... so far!  I will continue to add more as time allows.  Please check out my store on TpT. 

I have always loved creating new ideas and curriculum for my classroom.  My dream was to one day publish some of my ideas... well I can say that "publishing" isn't as much of a goal as sharing with other teachers and TpT allows me to do just that! 
Just one of my products on TpT!
