Back from Winter Break

This is my full last day of winter vacation. Most of it has been spent on tweaking the new blog and not on my resolutions of organizing and cleaning my house. But, those can wait, right?

We have a teacher prep day tomorrow, and I will be spending the day preparing activities that will help my students ease back into the rigorous schedule daily routines. I planned on using ideas that I found on Pinterest (another new addiction that I discovered full-time over the break) for writing about New Year's resolutions. It is always humorous a joy to hear what 6- and 7-year-olds have to say about their goals (besides reaching the next level in their DS or PSP).

Another gem that has saved me a lot of time as I've been finding ideas on TpT over the break is Dropbox. Once you install Dropbox on your computers, you can upload pictures and files and then view and retrieve them from another computer. In the past, I spent hours sending links via email or using a flash drive, which clogs up my school email and fills my flash drive with long-ago-forgotten-files. I hope this helps someone.

Thanks for stopping by!
