All About Me Blog Hoppin

I am linking up with Blog Hoppin' for their Teacher Week: Who.  The one that really sticks out to me is the singing.  In kindergarten I do a lot of singing and I just always pray that an adult is not standing too close to my door!!

 We will be posting later tonight our 10 winners for THE MAILBOX GOLD.

Be The Difference Giveaway

When SueBeth and I started teaching, The Mailbox was a definite hit with all classroom teachers and librarians.  Throughout the years, The Mailbox continues to be a "hit" with classroom teachers and librarians and has definitely done its part by keeping up with the 21st century.  It has gone from being a "magazine" to being a source where you are able to access curriculum ideas online.  There are TONS of classroom management forms, seasonal worksheets, and even a section called By Common Core Label to name just a few things offered through The Mailbox.

In keeping up with the 21st century you are going to want to head to The Mailbox Facebook page and make sure you like this fan page.  Once you become a fan of The Maibox Facebook page, you can join the Be The Difference Movement and capture a photo of what you are doing to BE THE DIFFERENCE in your classroom this year onto their Facebook page.  The Mailbox Facebook page also explains the BE THE DIFFERENCE sweepstakes on their fan page. 

The Mailbox has generously offered to give away 10 subscriptions for one free year of The Mailbox Gold to 10 lucky Busy Bee followers. Any teacher/grade level can enter and have a chance to win one of these subscriptions.  You can learn more about The Mailbox Gold and all it has to offer by clicking here

To enter to win one of the free subscriptions, leave a comment with your name and email below. The winners will be announced Sunday, August 18th.

Bubble Gum Rubric Up To Help With Marzano

As I have posted in previous posts, we used a Bubble Gum Rubric last year throughout our entire building.  This year I decided to jazz it up and put a second one in my classroom so that I have another place to reference to in my classroom. 
Today I put the finishing touches on it and I am in love with it!  I think the kids will love it, too.  
I did a TON, in my classroom today.  I will take pictures tomorrow of what I accomplished today, and get accomplished tomorrow.
Here is what my Bubble Gum Rubric Pocket Chart/Bulletin Board Area looks like now(sorry about the lighting glare):
It was such an easy bulletin board to put together! Copied, laminated, placed on the chart, and threw up my bubble gum items(pink balloons).
