I had a great time this Wednesday on the Teach Chat on Twitter. We talked about class/behavior management.
There were prizes that were given for answering questions!
I won two prizes from Really Good Stuff and I can't wait to get them in the mail.
Meet us on Wednesday at 8 Central!
I purchased a helpful video from the Charity Preston and she had a great website: wordmark.it
It identifies what fonts you have on your computer. All you need to do it type a word and it shows you what that word will look like with each font! It is really neat!

Even if you don't teach kindergarten, you have to buy a subscription to attend this expo. I learned so much and it really helped me with my literacy centers. The extra downloads are unavailable anymore but keep watching their site because they will have more opportunities!
I saw this idea from another teacher.
She didn't grade with a red pen. She graded each subject with a different color marker. I thought it was really neat and the kids liked it. Has anyone used markers to grade?
