Rockin' Resources: Things I Couldn't Live Without!

Saturday, May 26, 2012
You only have a few short hours to enter my Just Because Giveaway!!
Winners will be posted tomorrow :)

Have I ever mentioned how awesome Kelley from Teacher Idea Factory is?
Well she's having her first linky party and I'm so excited to join!!


I can honestly say I don't know where I would be without donorschoose and it's amazing donors! If you are one of the amazing people that has supported my students and their projects, I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts! I couldn't do it without you!

Our classroom definitely changed since we have had the iPads! My students are able to skype other classrooms, work on individual skills, and are motivated to work towards their goals!

3.) Our Soundlink Speaker
I love to use our bluetooth speaker in many ways!! I have always been obsessed with Dr. Jean, but now thanks to Kelley I have been using intelli-tunes!! Thanks again Kelley :) My students are also calmed by using iHeartRadios numerous yoga and lullaby stations through my phone.

4.) Sight Word Books
As I just posted recently, these books are lifesavers. My students enjoy them and they beg to read them. I feel that they are truly working on much needed skills and I know what specific skills each child is excelling in!

5.) Last, but certainly not least our ball chairs!!!
I can't say enough about these. They give my students the right to move, they really want to sit, they get their blood flowing to the brain, and they are just fun!! Did I mention you don't have to hear the horrible noisy chairs!! LOVE THEM!! You can pin them here!

Well I could go on and on but I will stop there. Thanks Kelley for the linky xoxo

Until Next Time....

I have seen the ball chairs advertised and they look very cool! Do you have a class set of them or a set just at a table?

I'm anxious to try out Donor's Choose this summer, especially after seeing all the wonderful things in your classroom that were made possible because of Donor's Choose!

I have not seen those ball chairs before. Are there any disadvantages to having them? Do they clean easily. I am thinking of the joys of not hearing those chairs clanking to the table tops at the end of the day as they put them up!

I am obsessed with Donors Choose, it's so awesome to know that people want to help students learn and get what they need. I saw the pin for the ball chairs, OMG so inspired!
