Alright, I'll admit it, I really do have a few "resolutions" that I'd like to work on.  Here they are:

1.  Get more involved with Facebook to connect with other teachers.
2.  Spend more time making activities to keep my 6th Graders engaged.
3.  Get a good grasp on the Common Core Standards for Math!

1.  Read more books.
2.  Complete another triathlon ~ I did Iron Girl last year and want to do more!
3.  Related to number 2, conquer my fears of the water!

It's a New Year's Give Away!

It's a new year which means it's a new me!  I'm not really one for resolutions, but I am one to change things up a bit.  Which is why I have decided to put some of my TeachersPayTeachers items as free!  Anyone that knows me well knows that I LOVE my Smartboard at school.  I literally can't get enough of it.  I love creating new lessons with it and the attendance boards are my absolute favorite - and my students.  Morning times can be pretty chaotic in any classroom.  So, I created these attendance boards so that my students can be in charge of attendance while I get to focus my attention on the other things that are going on.  Below are 5 of my attendance boards that I wanted to share with everyone for FREE.  I'm also including a couple math sheets that I hope you middle school teachers can use.  Hope you enjoy!
