Convert SMART to Promethean

Any smart board lesson you see, you can open with your promethean software (or at least for sure with ActivInspire) and it then you can save it as a flip chart. I've not used the feature often...

I used TeacherEase last year and loved it! Send me your email in a pm and I'll send you an invitation to it. I never had to pay a fee. I think it has something to do with the recommendations, but I'm...

20 also

I just returned and was only allowed to get 20 as well. It was quite irritating because the cashier (in training) wasn't very pleasant about it either. I was thinking about calling customer service....

I'm sure there is a formal dress code policy written somewhere for our district, but as PP stated, it's pretty much up to the principal to enforce what goes/doesn't go. But that being said, we have...

I also am totally grossed out by passes. I thought kids had to have a pass in my school (elementary), but no one really enforced it for the restroom. The nurse was the only one who was a real...

Aha moment

Post It Notes

I love a good post-it note. Cute ones, shaped ones, bright colors, even just the plain old yellow ones. If my drawer (yes an entire desk drawer) gets even a little low, I go into post-it withdrawals....
