By George, I Think I've Got It!

After Googling how to embed my PDF documents in vain (found lots of information that was confusing/not very helpful/too hard to follow), I finally stumbled across THIS entry in one of my new favorite blogs!  I don't have time to add my own post today, but I thought I'd share this for anyone else who might be interested! 

By the way, follow her blog if you teach.  She's awesome!

Speaking of following blogs, I'm starting my first contest....

Become a follower of my blog and leave a comment telling me why you love to teach and one "wish list" game/activity/worksheet, and I'll create said wishlist item in the next week or so and post it FREE for the first 5 people who comment!  An example of a wish-list game/activity/worksheet would be if you are really wanting an adjective activity to go with your unit on insects.  Let me know and I'll create a customized activity just for you!

Tell your friends to follow me, too! I will be doing a lot more contests this summer, so keep checking in!

Happy Hump Day!  Tomorrow is our "end of year" fun field trip to Chuck E. Cheese!  :)

P.S. I updated my "Greatest Hits" post now that I figured out how to embed documents.  Yay!


  1. The Inspired Apple is one of my top favorites of first grade teachers. Great job on your new blog!

  2. Hey Brenna! I'm so glad you're doing this! It's a great way for us teachers to collaborate!

    My Wish List Item: Here are some science standards I can never find/create anything for:

    -Compare and contrast embryonic development and incomplete metamorphosis


    -Investigate the effect of physical phenomena on various materials (e.g., heat absorption by different colored materials)

  3. Cute idea, Brenna! I teach for many reasons but my favorite thing about teaching is seeing the "light bulbs" go off in their eyes when they get a new concept!

    I would love some math games for 4th grade students to play when they are finished with their work. Maybe folder games with multiplication, division, equivalent fractions, decimals, place value to millions - something easy to grab and easy to put away and very little explanation needed.

  4. Brenna, I love to teach because I love building relationships with my students and learning what role they need for me to play (parent, mentor, teacher, support, etc.).

    I need some type of scatter plot grid document where all I have to do is change the data information. For example mass of bridge vs mass bridge held. I want students to construct the graph on the given grid from data we have collected in class. I want some analysis questions like what relationship is shown and explain. Remember, I teach 7th grade science. If this is out of your area, don't worry about it. :)

  5. Ok, guys! I'm working on ya'lls projects and will get them to you ASAP!
