Happy New Years!!!

I guess this means that I'm getting old because I have no plans tonight besides to be my daughter's taxi for New Years. I've decided to work on some school stuff.  Is anyone else doing the same thing? #amitheonlyone

Great news about Flipgrid!!

We are proud to announce that Flipgrid is now a part of Microsoft, sharing a mission to empower every student to achieve more. And just like Office 365, Flipgrid is now free for all educators and students.
😮 Crazy, I know. I'm sure you have questions. Let me address a few:
  • Flipgrid isn't going anywhere. 
  • Flipgrid will continue to work great on Chromebooks, iPads, iPhones, PCs, and Android devices. And just as we always have, we will continue to improve Flipgrid for ALL educators.
  • Flipgrid is free - for real! All educators have been automatically upgraded to Flipgrid Classroom (we’ll simply call it Flipgrid going forward). Additionally, Microsoft is providing a prorated refund to every educator who upgraded in the past year. 
  • Team Flipgrid will still be Team Flipgrid. Every one of us will continue to support, amplify, and champion the amazing Flipgrid educator community.

You HAVE to get EPIC!!!

I have been honored to be an

I am in no way getting paid to say this but I have to share this site if you have never used or heard of it....
Do you have books in your class library that is torn or do you not even have a class library because of costs? is your chance for that!!

Epic has changed my classroom forever~!
It is FREE for teachers!!!
Each student has an account and they can customize their account/profile by their age and the genres that they enjoy!

Epic has a HUGE variety of fiction and nonfiction books!

You, as a teacher, can even make collections and assign them to your students.
My first graders love to read the books and they can even rate the book and comment on other students.  

These books are categorized by AR level or Lexile Level.  They have a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books.
Many of the lower-level books are "Read to me" books.
I also love that some of the books have a quiz after the end of the book.
I allow my students to use the AR books from Epic to take AR tests in my classroom.  
The quizzes help the students score higher on their AR tests in my class.
They have awesome educational videos and are adding more all the time.

Parents can get their own accounts at home with a monthly fee but it is so much cheaper than buying 1 book at a time.
