Okay...my district provides us with a projector to use in our classrooms..but when I received the Luna Interactive Projection Camera, I totally loved the portability of it...it's lightweight, user friendly, and has three technology tools in one! It's not only a projector...the Luna Interactive Projection Camera is also a web cam and a video and photo camera...nice! I was able to use the Luna camera as a workstation...and my firsties LOVED it! I can't wait to use it this summer in our Title 1 Maintenance Program...I'm sure the kiddos will be thrilled to have this awesome technology in our classroom! :)

End of Year Awards and a Giveaway!

Hey y'all! 
It's been a crazy few weeks of school..thus the lack of blog posts..sorry folks. 
My firsties and I have 8 more days of school {not that I'm counting or anything!} and it's been tough...we are at  that point where everyone is bickering and arguing for anything and everything and just ready for a break...a looong break. So I've been thinking that I want to do something that will maybe stop this behavior or at least control it a little..what better way to do this than to celebrate their accomplishments in first grade! 

As a result..my End of the Year Awards {Recognizing Amazing Little Learners} was born. I hope that by doing this they will learn that everyone is special in their own individual way and that we should celebrate our uniqueness and accomplishments. This set of awards will be on sale for $1.50 until the end of the weekend. I know that many of you are already out on summer break, {so jealous!} but for those of you who still have a 'lil ways to go..maybe you'll be able to use them with your own amazing little learners. 
Here is a little preview of what you'll get. 
As always the first 2 people to comment will get these free! Just don't forget to leave your email address. 

On another note...Learning Resources has been so kind as to sponsor this awesome giveaway. I will be giving away the HearALL Assessment Recorder to one lucky reader. 
This is a great little product to have in the classroom..I'm so excited to be able to use it with my 'lil firsties..especially right now that they're in need of a little motivation..you know what I mean, right? This last week I used it during a guided reading lesson, in a partner reading session, and as a behavior management tool. Yes...a behavior management tool. I had a group of students that were being little stinkers during our workstations, so I got up, set the HearAll Assessment Recorder at their table and walked away. Would you believe that they settled down after this? They know that I can go back and listen to them..or better yet..have someone else listen to their rowdiness..gasp! 

Anyway...saying that I LOVE this product is really an understatement...I adore it! Thank you so much Learning Resources..for helping out in my classroom!
Okay..so now that you know about this wonderful little product..I want to give one of you the opportunity to win this for your own classroom. 

Here is how you can enter: 
1. Like Learning Resources on Facebook
2. Follow Learning Resources on Twitter.
3. Follow both my 'lil blog and TpT store

Giveaway will end on Wednesday, May 23rd at midnight...I will announce the winner on Thursday. 

That's it...easy peasy...lemon squeezy!
Good luck to all of you who enter!
