Pin Up Thursday....ER....Friday.

I like this linky a lot!  It is easy for me to do because we ALL use Pinterest.  Probably more than we should.  HEHEHEH.

SO here I am linking up with Mrs. McClain again!! Although I am a day late.  Oops.

While our district is in the process of going 1:1 with Apple iPads (holy huge is an article.) I was given 20 iPads to use in my classroom next year. I am going to try to have a completely paperless classroom (other than our ISN's) so I have been looking for resources for going paperless, flipping my classroom, and anything that is iPad related.

This pin is for an app called Showbie.  This is an app that allows teachers an easy way of assigning, collecting and leaving feedback for assignments that are done all on iPads. I am trying to figure out how I am going to do assignments and such this year being that I only have 20 iPads but this might work out well.

This pin is amazing.  It is a step by step of how to set up google docs in your classroom.  What an awesome find. We use Google Apps for Education so I just have to figure out who my students are.  I am planning on using BLOGGER for class blogs (I am trying to figure that one out still but I think it will be how I do homework....more to come on that one.)

This is a pretty good article for getting iPads ready for the classroom.  Because these iPads will not be on the configuration that the rest of our iPads use in our school I have to do this by myself and independently.  I really like the idea of giving each iPad a name and an email address. The email address could be very handy for quick sending to me files that are not GOOGLE DRIVE.

From The Organized Classroom

Um.  DUH.  How cool is this. You know you have those kids.  The ones that EVERY TIME THEY COME TO CLASS THEY HAVE TO GO TO THE NURSE.  

Our nurse actually quit this year because of the year that we had.  We had really bad students and sometimes teachers would "just let them go" when they bugged you to go to the nurse. 

I LOVE THIS IDEA.  The blog post is here.  This is such a smart idea.  The second drawer is "try a mint" I feel like this could need to be re-filled a lot but at the same time if I can cut down the "can I go to the nurse?" talks I am all for it. As a 6th grade teacher I have been wondering about pads. I do not know if girls would grab one out of here if they needed one but that could be the bottom drawer.

Hope you had fun seeing what I pinned.  Can't wait to see what you pinned!

Creating Ratio Posters

This was a really fun project that I did with my 7th graders when we were working on ratios, Rates and proportions that I never got a chance to post this past year, and I will not be teaching 7th grade again! (sort of sad...but not really.)
To introduce the topic we started with a review of ratios.  Below you will find the worksheet that went along with the project.  You can see this student was using her worksheet to help her think of a topic idea!!  LOVE!

She also was not very careful with her worksheet.  Sorry for the wrinkles.  As you can see the students had to pick a topic, draw or represent (i told them they could use stickers or glue objects to their poster) 20 objects, then on a second sheet of paper complete 10 questions relating to ratios from their poster and reflect.  Here is what this student came up with!

If you have had any questions about using art or projects in a math class here it is, Directly from the mouth (er, hand) of a student.  STUDENTS LOVE VISUAL PROJECTS …

Back To School First Day Activity Idea

Hi there!  I have been slacking on the blogging lately.  When summer started I was upset that I was not going to be teaching summer school, and that I had to drop out of Grad School for a while (Due to some REALLY ridiculous issues at a different school not allowing my transcripts to get set over...Long story really.), but I have actually been INCREDIBLY busy this whole summer. 

I wanted to do a quick share for an activity that you can do on the first day of school and how I used it last year! (I wish I had pictures!!! That is going to be one of my goals this upcoming school year is to take more pictures in my room, of my products.  I think it is actually going to become a classroom job!!!)
So here it is I posted this last year about this time but it works so well.  I have it as a freebie in my TPT store. You can click the picture or HERE to download.  
This is what I did last year and will do again this year on the first day of school.  I took pictures of all of my students on the fi…
