Plickers - Automatic Student Feedback With Only 1 Device - My Bright Idea

http://youtu.be/JJgpVrA_cEo

Well, it's obviously not my bright idea, but apparently some very intelligent person created a way to get automated student feedback with just an app on one device. It kind of works similar to QR codes if you're familiar with that. Instead of trying to write about it and get...word-tied(??), I've made a video to explain a little bit how it works. Obviously I couldn't show you in a classroom setting, but I think there are already some awesome videos out there that do that (Just be careful when you search or you will end up watching Kelly Pickler songs like I did!).

And if you're a early childhood teacher, Plickers can be done, too! Mary Amoson has a Plicker video just for you to show you how to tweak the cards to work for the little ones.

Here's my Plickers video:

TpT 2014 Conference Recap and Time Mat Giveaway


Hey, ya'll! I just got back from a fabulous trip in Las Vegas at the first Teachers pay Teachers conference. I had an amazing time meeting other bloggers, and there were some kind people that had seen some of my videos and even asked about my chinchilla (Well, most thought it was a rabbit, but that's ok! Bubbles takes no offense.) So I decided to pull out the good ol' makeup bag, set up my lighting and vlog about my incredible experience at the TpT conference. And to tempt you to watch it, I am doing a giveaway of a Time Mat.


I bought two for teaching elapsed time, but one was really all that was needed. So I have an extra one to give to a super awesome teacher, BUT - you must watch my vlog video and listen for the special words that are needed to enter (you can enter without them, but your entries won't count :P).

I will tell you that there is also a special story inside the vlog that I share that I hope you will watch. It's pretty sweet! Watch it here.

I am also linking up with A Burst of First where you can get an overdose of TpT conference recaps.

 The contest ends Wednesday, July 23rd at midnight (EST). Hope you'll enter!

I Forgot - Mystery Freebie Every Week

It seems between all of my social media outlets, I sometimes do a bad job about also blogging about what I am up to. So, if you haven't seen this in any of my other social media outlets, I just wanted to let you know that every week in the FlapJack newsletter I share a mystery freebie - an item in my TpT store that I have set to free for one week for my newsletter subscribers. If you're interested in something like that, click the image or here to subscribe (you also get a cool multiplication game freebie :)).

My Etsy Dream - Personalized Owl Mini Cards Giveaway!

Hey, ya'll! So, instead of thinking about having kids, I'm thinking about following a long-time dream - owning an Etsy shop. Now I know some of you have kids, teach, AND have an Etsy shop - you are AMAZING! Like, I don't even understand your superpowers!

So, due to the Vegas TpT conference (Are you going? Let me know in the comments!), I don't want to launch my store until afterwards. I've set a deadline for myself on July 25th. In the meantime, I'd like to drum up a little social media and get the word out about my store. So, of course I'm having a giveaway!

And what will I be creating and selling? Basically personalized paper products with tiny nail art and scrapbook adornments. Sounds kind of lame, but here are some pictures to explain:






So, what I will be actually giving away are 8 personalized owl mini cards with the following design:



I think these would be really fun to have in your desk handy for whenever you need to brighten a student or colleague's day. So, if you think it would be fun, too, just participate in the giveaway below! I'll pick one winner tomorrow, July 6th, at midnight. This is a quick one because I need to get them mailed and sent out before I head to Vegas on Wednesday. Thanks for playing!
