Do You Know What Looks Great?

MY BLOG BUTTON!  Ok, it kinda looks great.  It's a first attempt.  I got obsessive about not having a button and then my husband knew I wasn't going to shut-up about it until it was finished. So now I have a blog button for this wonderful blog and I hope you'll steal the code and spread the love!  (I sure would love a comment telling me that you've stolen the code....I'd like to view my button out there on the great wide web!)

And don't want to become a follower of my other blog...Sturch's Second Grade Stars!

Sturch's Second Grade Stars

Good evening everyone!

Just wanted to take a quick moment and introduce my second blog.....Sturch's Second Grade Stars!  I have been a teacher for 16 great years (but I'm still only 21...hee hee) but this will be my first venture in second grade.  If you have a great sense of humor, come follow me on this journey.  This new blog will be for fellow teachers, students, and parents!  All are welcome here....and there

77 Web Resources to Try Over the Summer

Richard Byrne from Free Technology for Teachers has posted this fantastic resource for educators to use this summer.  I'm still looking through it myself but there are some great ideas here.  Just wanted to pass this great resource along to you.

Gudli is great little site that I just discovered after reading a post over on iLearnTechnology's site. (If you haven't discovered them, you should definitely head over there.)

Gudli is designed for early education students, Pre-K-1st, but would be appropriate as a center activity for grades 2-3 as well. It is well designed, easy to navigate, and very colorful. Children will be engaged from the moment they enter the site.
"Gudli is a unique online experience for kids where they enjoy learning. With our interactive educational games children develop skills in maths, logic, memory, words, creativity and more. Gudli is free, full of fun, easy to use and the ideal learning space for preschoolers to second grade kids."

I will be posting less during the summer because I am trying to finish graduate school and prepare to change grade levels for the next school year. I hope you'll keep checking back on this little blog and please consider becoming a follower! Wishing you a fantastic summer!
