A favor...Try out my new digital Resource

Hello friends,

I ask of you a favor:

Can you try out my updated African American Research Project "Google Slides Version" and give it a go?

I want to work the kinks out before I post it on TpT and I figured you would be the perfect audience!

I'm new at trying this digital resource out, so there may be some snags that I need to fix.

With everything becoming sooooo digital, it's only fitting that I adapt my classroom to meet those needs.  What I did was take one of my projects and transform it into Google Slides, but I'm not positive all of the sharing settings are good to go.

Would you be SO KIND and download it for FREE in my TpT store and provide me feedback?  I'll leave it up for a week or so, fix it if need be, and then switch to $$.  The good news?  You get to keep it for free. (insert happy dance).

So thank you.

I'll love you forever.  

No seriously.  

It's a promise.

March Currently

Thanks to Farley for the link up!

I've watched the Bachelor's my guilty pleasure.  So, if you're a fan too, you and I know that Ben broke the rules of telling 2 girls that he loved them!  Jeesh--supposed to be a secret, buddy!  I do give him credit though... he's wearing his heart on his sleeve and is being completely honest.  Wonder what he's going to do next week. I'm a Lauren fan, so we will have to wait and see who he picks!  

So excited it's March... LOVE THAT!

But it leads to my next worry...about how fast testing is approaching because I'm not sure my kiddos are ready! We have to jam pack everything in before March, and if you teach 5th grade, it's sure a lot of curriculum!  We're battling multiplying fractions this afternoon, and then it's off to my least favorite, which is dividing decimals.  Any tips and tricks?

I need a vacation like yesterday.  Stressed out to the max between work and home.  I need to get away with just my hubby for a bit to unwind and recharge.  I'm sure you can relate... Add a mani/pedi to that and I'm good to go.

And yes, we are a polling site.  We have PD that day while people come in and vote.  The kids get to stay home and have an extra day off.  Works for us, but I am with Farley and I'm not a fan of all those people scoping out the building and acting like they own the place.  I guess we have to remember that schools are designed to serve the community, and if they are a polling facility, then they are in fact providing a service to the community.  Still doesn't make it my favorite day of the year though...

Happy Tuesday!
