LaborLESS Blog Hop

Hello everyone!


ARE YOU REAAADDDY!!!
Main Graphic Laborless

It is Finally here!

Today I am linking with Laura from Where the Magic Happens, Krista from Teaching Momster, and Lisa from PAWsitively Teaching! I have joined forces once again with my bloggy friends to bring you the best, most amazing giveaway on this Labor Day weekend!

All of us have been thinking about  good ways in which to treat our readers and followers. We thought hard, and I mean it! Really, really hard… and decided that we can treat you to our best ideas to work smarter rather than harder… at school and home!

I know what it takes to be a great teacher, the stress, the time, the energy… I could go on and on! I also know that we crave time to ourselves and our families.

So here I go!
Slide1
When I was teaching kindergarten I had 3-4 students at a large table. Because of this they were unable to store any of their books, notebooks, folders, etc. at their desk. Every time they needed some sort of material they had to leave their desk to retrieve the said item. This seemed to disrupt learning every time. During the summer after my first year, I decided to have some chair covers made. I bought some affordable fabric, took that and a classroom chair, and a picture of what I wanted to a seamstress. She sewed a class set of chair covers for me and this simple thing made my classroom run so much more smoothly (and it helped bring a pop of color to my room). I could not recommend this investment enough. It made retrieving items so much easier and less chaotic.

I find it so difficult to relax at home. My list is always there in my head or on my phone and I am not a fan of leaving things to be done. I have to force myself to turn everything off and just relax. The first thing I always do when I get home is put on some pajamas. I would live in pajamas if it were socially acceptable. Once the kids are asleep, I tend to pour a nice glass of wine and watch some trash TV for a little bit. This allows me to turn my brain off and get lost in whatever it is that I am watching. I also really enjoy reading, if I can manage to stay up late enough. I have not been able to read as much since having my girls, but I look forward to the day I can get lost in books again.

This Interactive Science Notebook will be a lifesaver if you teacher K-2. There are over forty topics covered, each with at least one page of hands-on activities for your students to do in small group, whole group, or independently, depending on the grade level. There are two options: one full page and two per page (that can cut down on paper and fit perfectly into a composition notebook). 

Here are some pictures of this product in action.
