What's Up Wednesday | Collaboration

Welcome to the first post of What's up Wednesday, where my readers can get involved and tell me what's up with their classrooms and even your own children.

Today's discussion: Collaboration.

Here's some info on learning how to collaborate from CEC's Reality Blog.

How did you learn to collaborate?
What are some good tips / tricks?
What isn't working in your current collaboration? It can be teacher-teacher, parent-teacher, etc.

Do you fear this dreaded 'C' word?  Since it's the beginning of a new school year, lets set communication up to succeed.  Lets collaborate and work together in the best interest of the KIDDOS. :)

Thanks for reading. Be sociable: share, tweet & 1+!

Tips on Tuesday | 60 different educational Apps | PREZItation | San Antonio teacher

Hey everyone!

I am of course a fan of prezi.  If you haven't heard of it, please try it.  You just might get hooked on prezi! I love it...well, after I figured out how to use it.  It does take some practice to make a prezi.  So what is prezi you may ask?  In my words...its like a futuristic, interactive power point presentation. You can put an actual power point into the prezi, you can put videos, photos, links and more.  You can also make them all interactive.  Here is an awesome example I saw on Prezi's FB page today!

Awesome prezi! 60 Education Apps in 60 Minutes

Please note, most of these apps are geared towards ipad, iphone, etc.  If you know of any similar apps regarding pc, and android please share in a comment below! 

I hope this helps in your classroom!

Please be sociable: share, pin and tweet!

Make it Monday | Hanging file folders

Hey everyone, for some reason I thought yesterday was Tuesday, so I posted 'Tips on Tuesday.' Then I realized today is Tuesday and yesterday was Monday....oh well. Here is my 'Make it Monday.'

 I recently decided I needed to become more organized in my daycare lesson plans but what would be a good way to visual organize beside a binder or another folder? Here comes the research on google & pinterst. I found these inspirations!

 This one is from the blog of: Remarkable Home

This one is from the blog: Classroom DIY

This idea is from the blog: The Silver Lining

And a few others I found at Micheal's, Pinterest, and a blog called: A Southern Layd's Ramblings

After all of my research, here is my finished results for my daycare lesson plans.  I even put a folder for the next week's lessons and a place for the blog's weekly calendar and future ideas. Enjoy! 

Picking my paper pattern.

Tracing the shape of the folder onto scrapbook paper.

Done tracing, Now I will cut it out & glue it on my folder. 
Line them up, glue on the clear folder tabs &
grommet each one to put the ribbon through. 
Clsoe up of ribbon and grommets. 
Top half of files. 
Hanging up with H-E-B thumb tack hooks. 
Bottom half of files. 

Tada! Hope this helps your organization!

Meet the Teacher

     Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I am starting my 5th year teaching in a self-contained classroom in South Texas. I was married November 2017 to my amazing husband, Rob.  We have a white German Shepherd who is a big teddy bear!  In my spare time I enjoy camping, hiking, photography, graphic design, crafting and Netflix binges.

I have a younger sister who is in the midst of obtaining her Audiology doctorate.  Our parents have always been loving and supportive of all our endeavors.

    I grew up in a small church family, spend most of my childhood with children-babysitting and going to camps.  I was also involved in a variety of extracurricular activities including yearbook, Student Council, National Honor Society, piano and ballet. In 2008, I graduated from High school as Salutatorian and received a full scholarship from the Cailloux family in Kerrville, Texas.

I then headed off to attend UTSA to recieve my B.A. in Interdisciplinary studies with a concentration in special education.  While at UTSA, I acquired 100+ hours of observation ranging from BMC(behavior management classroom), to general ed, and to ESY(extended school year).

     Since graduating in 2013, I taught 3 years at NEISD in a self contained unit called ALE (Adapted Learning Environment). In 2016, I switched districts and started an ALE unit at one of the intermediate schools in SCUCISD.

That's me in a nutshell! Thanks for reading through and if you have any other questions or comments, feel free to let me know!
