Designing Worksheets with Powerpoint

Ladybug's Teacher Files has created a very informative video on how to design printables using Powerpoint.

I highly recommend visiting her blog.  She is clearly an amazing teacher with fabulous tips!

Click here to see how My Cute Graphics explains how to add a background to your Powerpoint.

Thanks to all who are posting "how to" information.  It really helps!


Clever Classroom Tips Link

Curriculum to the Core shared an amazing link in the TpT forum.  I had to share it here:  25 Clever Classroom Tips for Elementary School Teachers.


I especially loved the tutorial on how to print on post it notes as well as the Remind101 app to text reminders to students/parents!  I tried out the Remind101 app and it's wonderful!  

Thank you Curriculum to the Core!!!

Youtube.com and Professional Developement

Last night I couldn't get enough of youtube.com.  I am always interested in learning about best practices.  Several people in my district are excited about whole brain teaching so I watched some videos on youtube and I was transfixed.  I plan on watching more whole brain teaching videos on wholebrainteaching.com. I love all the movement and that the kids are engaged.

I also watched random first grade videos and teaching calendar with the smart board.  There is just so much to view.  The best part is that these teachers are inspiring and provide new techniques to try.  Youtube is like pinterest.com because it draws you in for hours and hours!

Here are a few of my favorite videos:


On a side note, I sell on eBay and promote other sellers.  If interested check out my eBay Store: Lowery's Loft.  My username on eBay is GroovyEducator (just like this blog).
