In November, my classroom changed so much because I received my Smartboard! I have absolutely loved using this for many reasons. Of course, the Smartexchange offers so many great programs. But one thing that really captivated my students was when we used Google Earth on the Smartboard. For some reason, having the board on their level where they could push the buttons made it a bit more magical than just a projector way up on a screen. They loved "flying" to new places! The new Google Earth has so many awesome pictures you can click on.

Thank you for visiting my blog! I have enjoyed reading other teacher's blogs for a few months now, and I am very excited to launch my own! I just finished my second year of teaching. During my first year I taught third grade and loved it. Due to lower enrollment, my position was cut and I was moved to second grade, and I loved every bit of that too! I recently found out that I will be moving to fifth grade reading and social studies. It will be a new challenge!

I am also pursuing my Master's degree in Reading and ESL instruction! So, really, I love all levels of elementary education, and I plan to blog about many topics outside of my grade-level.

So, since no blog post is complete without a picture, here are a few for tonight...

My classroom at the beginning of this past year...

Don't you love how everything is so clean at the beginning of the year?! Lasts for about a week...

Here is my favorite place to be in the classroom...I love doing guided reading groups and other things at this table!

My second favorite place to be in the classroom: I love reading to my class.
