Bundles of Joy

We are almost at the end of our first week in the digital classroom age.  How have you been feeling? For many of us it can be overwhelming to move to an online classroom when we have enjoyed seeing our students faces in person on a daily basis. Partnering Google Classroom and Zoom has allowed me to try to reclaim my sanity during these trying times.

Every day I change my banner in my google classroom to ensure a new positive attitude in my digital classroom. I have a variety of bundles available if you have been doing the same!

First is the Ultimate MEGA Bundle (All Animated Headers/ Banners). This will allow you to change every banner on a daily basis for the rest of the year!

Stuck Teaching Remotely?

Happy St. Paddy’s Day! We hope everyone is doing well and staying safe in these trying times.

If your school has been moved offline and you are currently remote teaching – here is a great way to brighten your students day. Change up your header daily in Google Classroom! For a quick refresher on how to do that check out our blog post here!

Every morning I rotate my Google Classroom banner so students still feel the “brighteness” of the classroom and community coming through into their homes even when we can not be together. I even upload them into my Google Forms. Try your first animated banner FOR FREE if you are just getting used to Google Classroom!

Here are some of my favorites from my TPT store:

Scratch Art in the Classroom!

The deal of the day on Amazon last week was a box of scratch art. My kids LOVE scratch art and knew I had to find a way to incorporate it into my classroom. I’m in the middle of a fun unit on ancient civilizations of world history. We’ve  already done  cuneiform and hieroglyphics in play-doh and played Shark Tank for ancient inventions. So I decided to do something fun for Ancient China too! Students LOVE oracle bones. But… I didn’t have turtle shells or cow bones for students to write on (no shocker there!) Instead I used the scratch art as Oracle Bones! Students went crazy. They wrote their own sentences in Chinese on the “Oracle Bones” and then shared them with their tables.

Have you tried using scratch art in the classroom?  Here are some of the photos with how great they turned out!
