Written Expression Decor

Hello blogger friends! I just wanted to share this with you all. This website is offering free vinyl wall quotes to teachers, all you have to pay is $7.95 for shipping.  You can choose any quote that you wish.  One of my teacher friends ordered one last year for her classroom and it was SO cute! It lasted all year and did not peel off of the wall. Happy Shopping! :)

Too Good Not To Share

I have stumbled across a website called easyCBM that is new to me and I wanted to share with you all! It can be found HERE! It is has progress monitoring probes for Reading and Math.  The reading is similar to DIBELS if you are familiar with that.  There are lots of good things about it: 1.) It's FREE! 2.) It tracks AND charts students progress, all you have to do is enter your students and their data and VIOLA...YOU HAVE DATA! 3.) It can be used in grades K-8; 4.) They are LOTS of probes...enough to get you through the school year!, 5.) All probes with the exception of fluency can be taken on the computer and their scores will automatically be entered for the student.  If you are not familiar with Curriculum Based Measurement--have no fear! They have a section where you can learn how to assess and even practice giving them.  There are videos to watch that are about 2 minutes long and sample probes.  Go try it out and let me know what you think! I am SUPER excited about using this in the upcoming school year!

I have been slacking...

Sorry everyone, I have been slacking in Bloggy World! This is what has had my attention the end of the school year and the beginning of summer!
Yes! I finished my Master's Degree in Special Education! 

This is my heart! I had to devote some "make-up" time to him since I was busy finishing up with school and work...I was SUPER busy=SUPER stressed!
