Technology Tutorial: Making Binder Covers & Spines


Reader, Brianne, sent left me a comment on the last post, asking if I could post a tutorial on how to create the binder covers. Of course!

My Year So Far... Back to School Night 2012

This year has been a whirlwind of craziness already. I think I may finally be somewhat settled into my new schedule, commute, school, students, etc. I spend 35 minutes commuting each way. I'm at school an hour and a half early and usually force myself to leave at 4 p.m. each day {when my contracted hours end}.

I'm enjoying my new school and students, but boy-oh-boy do I have a tough class this year - behaviorally and academically. We're working through it - slowly, but surely. I have a teaching assistant who bounces back and forth between the other 4th grade and my class. We have 53 kids in 4th grade. My teaching partner and I rotate in the afternoon. I teach science and art. He teaches P.E./health and social studies. It's so much fun to have 53 students who all feel like mine.

My Favorite: Blogs & Online Resources

Sad to say, I have no idea what life would be like without my laptop...or the internet. I love Pinterest. I love blogs. I love creating PowerPoints, Word Docs, printables, units, etc. electronically. I just simply love every single thing about technology. Today I'm sharing my favorite blogs and online resources with you. I wanted to use image links for all of them, but not every blog has a button and not every website has a decent logo image I can use. I've included a super short blurb to tell you what the websites are for, where needed.

The Learning Effect

I am so excited to start this blog, The Learning Effect. Since I began teaching full-time at the end of November 2011, I have just had an itch to start a blog specifically for things related to education and teaching.

For a little over a year now, I've been blogging at The Nest Effect. I am not going to stop blogging at The Nest Effect, but instead, hope to juggle both at once.

My awesome readers on The Nest Effect's Facebook page helped me pick the name The Learning Effect. So fitting - I love it.
