I like most other people never realized that Pinterest had a "Permission to Pin" clause.  You can read more about it at Laura's information on Pinterest.  With that being said, please feel free to pin anything from my blog onto Pinterest.

The 3AM Teacher

Her Ding 1 and Ding 2 inspired me to make this Even and Odd Things math board game.

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  I know I am looking forward to a longer weekend.  As a result, my team decided to spend our shorter week reviewing Reading skills.  I'm taking another break from making a spelling board game.  I'll have another one coming soon.

Have you heard of Dropbox?  I have been using this since last spring and am so glad that I found it!  With Dropbox I no longer need a thumbdrive or have to worry about did I save that file on my home computer or the one at school.  Dropbox is a free Web-based file hosting service operated by Dropbox, Inc. that uses cloud computing to enable users to store and share files and folders with others across the Internet using file synchronization.  If you're interesting in using Dropbox.

Spelling Recording Sheet

Well here it Spelling Recording Sheet.  After several requests, I have decided to make a recording sheet to go along with my weekly spelling games.  I had been having my class use notebook paper as a recording sheet, but this one should work well too.
Click {HERE} to get a copy.
There are 2 to a page to save on copies.

I don't have a new game this week.  We are doing a review of skills, due to parent teacher conferences on Friday.  I've been battling a cold all weekend, so I am off to make some soup.  Have a great week and enjoy Valentine's Day!   I'm also nearly at 200 followers.  It looks like a giveaway will be coming soon!!

Tribute to The Vintage Teacher

Every Friday I was excited to check my blog roll and see the 5 Freebies that Pamela Woods of The Vintage Teacher would always post.  A while back I noticed that her posts stopped.  I was very saddened to learn that she recently passed away.

This Friday my weekly freebie is in honor of her.  You will always be remembered and missed by so many!

Teachers Notebook has honored her family's request to list all of Pam's products for free as her family feels that is the legacy Pam would have wanted to leave for teachers everywhere. You can visit her store HERE to see her amazing products. So Pam will also be participating in the best Freebie Friday ever. 
So here's my weekly game board.  It goes along with our Reading Street Series Bad Dog Dodger.  

We will also be doing activities from JC Schools found here.
