ESSA & ELs Presentation

One of my colleagues and friends-Araceli Flores- who works at our local high school is going through the same Master's program that I completed a few years (it's been 8 years holy cow!!!) ago.  She asked me to view a powerpoint on the the new laws that affect English Learners.  Her assignment was to share this information with as many people as possible.  She put it in a Youtube presentation so I offered to share it here. Soooo.....here it is.  I hope you learn something you didn't know about the most recent changes in legislation.

Tutorial for Pretty Paper Flowers

This is so cool. I could not find the tutorial for the gigantic flowers like I said I was going to.  So I jumped right in and made my own. It wasn't really that hard.  The hardest part was keeping my hubby and my wiener dogs from making noise while I was filming.  HeeHee. You can actually hear him and the doggies' jingles a few times.  Oh well.  Considering it's my first stab at it and I really don't have the proper equipment (just a camera on a tripod and a laptop), I don't think it's too bad. I made another one for a different kind of flower.  We'll see if it's an improvement over the first one. It was fun anyhow!!!

A Great Way To Spend Earth Day

Becky and I shared our personal days on Earth Day and went hiking at Carter Lake near Loveland, Colorado.
Unfortunately, Christi couldn't join us. We are having a serious teacher shortage in our area of Northeast Colorado which includes our subs. It's been difficult for teachers to get subs even if they are sick.
Becky was able to plan ahead though and got one lined up. It was a well needed and well deserved day after a week of PARCC state testing.
Here are some pictures from our fun day off!

Time for Spring

Last week we had snow ...and I'm ready for some nicer weather. So if it's not nice outside I'm going to make it nice inside. These flowers were so easy to make. I got them from a tutorial on Facebook. I'll see if I can link it to here so the proper people are credited. Anyhow, the bulletin board turned out pretty cute and I've had some great comments. I hope you enjoy it.
