Dr. Seuss' Birthday and a FREEBIE!!!

Dr. Seuss' birthday is coming up!! It is on March 2nd.  I just love Dr. Seuss and all his weird books.  I love his quotes and all the fantastic characters he has created.  Last year, I made jello parfaits for my students to represent Cat in the Hat.  My students loved finding these treats on their desks.

I want to make something cute again this year, but I'm still debating between a few choices.  Here are some possibilities that I've found on Pinterest.

Here's another cute pic I found a Pinterest.  This photo booth idea would be super cute for my students.

Finally.... some of my favorite quotes!! I will be discussing some of these quotes throughout the week with my students.  At the end of the week, they will pick their favorite quote.  

Click below for a FREEBIE! It includes a list of Dr. Seuss quotes for your students, a biography about Dr. Seuss, and a worksheet for students to choose their favorite quote.  Enjoy!!

Have fun celebrating Dr. Seuss with your students this week!!

February Currently and Tech Tips!!

Happy February!! I love the design of Farley's CURRENTLY this month! Be sure to link up!!

* LISTENING - I'm still on my country kick.  I have it on ALL day long.

* LOVING - I love my new Smartboard and iPads in my classroom!!! They have permanently changed the way I teach.  This is the first Smartboard I've ever had.  How did I use to teach without it?! Here are some pics.
Using AirServer, I can wirelessly mirror multiple iPads onto my Smartboard.  I love using this feature during math time!! I can easily assess how my students are doing. My students love having their work displayed for everyone to see.
These pics show my students taking AR tests and solving math problems using Educreations.
I'm loving the Notebook software to create interactive lessons.  Here are a few of my second grade students reviewing time and money concepts. 
 * THINKING - Thank you Punxsutawney Phil for NOT seeing your shadow!!! I am such a California girl.  Weather below 60 degrees is too cold for me, so an early Spring is music to my ears.

* WANTING - I need some suggestions for great, educational apps for my new iPads.  Time to start searching through some of my favorite teacher blogs! What are some of your favorite apps?

* NEEDING - I'll be out for two days next week for school stuff.  I need to write my sub plans ... SO ANNOYING!  This takes me to my pet peeves .......

* PET PEEVES - I hate writing sub plans! I'm sure you all feel my pain with this one.  Secondly, winter is by far my LEAST favorite season.  I can't wait for warmer weather.  I'm such a happier girl in summer!! 

Don't forget the BIG Super Sunday Sale on TPT running for the next 2 days!!
