This month, I am participating in a blogging challenge called #MTBoSBlaugust. To read posts from other participants, click on the logo above.
For the past few years, I've done a "My Favorite Friday" post as a way to reflect on the week and to focus on the positive reasons that create our "why". Last year, I fell off the blogging wagon around mid-October and as a result, there was much of the year that I didn't spend time in reflection and celebrating victories. I definitely want to bring back #MyFavFriday this year though!
So here we go...
My Favorite Classroom Decoration
Three things I love in this corner...
1) The Women in STEM posters are just absolutely gorgeous!
2) The Puzzle Place got a make-over with new wall puzzles to encourage more problem solving
3) The "How to be a Math Person" poster finally got printed and put on my podium.
My Favorite Gifts
This afternoon, a colleague down the hall brought me this amazing mug and said she saw it and thought of me. If you don't know me very well, I can easily get stressed and I do love my cats. In fact, one of my cats came from this colleague and that very cat woke me up this morning at 3:30am and wouldn't let me go back to sleep! :)
This morning, I had a parent stop by with a gift from her son who is now in college. I was so extremely touched that he took the time to write me a note and send a gift during the back to school craziness when he is getting ready to start classes himself.
My Favorite Hack of a Hack
But wait - there's more! :)
That night, I was laying in bed, almost asleep, when I had a "moment". I literally sat up in bed to share my moment with hubby (who was NOT as impressed as he should have been).
I realized that I could use my Rocketbook frame and assign one of the icons at the bottom to go to a Google folder for Student Work. Then, as students are working, I could put the frame on their whiteboard, on their notebook, on their notes, whatever and easily send it to my computer / projector and share with the class! I can't wait to try it with students!!!
Oh - just to note, the laminated page worked fine at home, but had a glare issue at school. I ended up printing the RB page on white cardstock, cutting out the inside and putting the frame into a non-glare sheet protector - problem solved!!!
And a statue...
While I don't get to keep Hector, I did want to be able to remember him, so he's now a #MyFavFriday :)
Now it's time for the weekend and some rest before the kids come next week! Happy Friday y'all!!!
