I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching today for her Five for Friday link party… the place where you share 5 random things from your week. Sounds easy enough, right?!
I joined my first Linky Party this week and committed myself to blogging more intentionally. I am so inspired by the educational bloggers out there!!!
I also made a Facebook page for this blog where I can share teaching tips, freebies, and much more! Feel free to "Like" the page and show me some love!!! It is in the baby phase!! :)
I started working on 2 new products for my TPT store! I am REALLY excited to get this Place Value Monsters resource posted. I mega <3 anything with monsters!!! It has a math art activity that would be great to make during the first days of school that can be turned into interactive, Common Core standards-based bulletin board centers.
monster-y cuteness + Common Core rigor = Ahhh!!! :)
I participated in a 2-day professional development session on…
Project Based Learning!!!
I have always been interested in PBL, so I was really excited to learn more about it. One of the big take-away points for me was that Project-Oriented Learning and PBL are NOT the same thing! I am really excited that our district is focusing more on PBL in the future! :)
I participated in my first Teachers Pay Teachers Back-to-School Sale… actually, my first official "sale" of any kind! It was exciting to hear that cha-ching a few more times than normal on Monday and Tuesday!!!
