Some days, when I can't bear the thought of typing or looking at a computer screen any longer, I just cruise from site to site, or app to app, on my iPad. There's no typing involved and it's a very relaxing way to end a long day while listening to Netflix in the background. The teacher in me is scolding myself and saying Read a book! but I just need absolute mindless nothingness for at least 30 minutes before bed. Reading a book takes too much concentration.
All that to say that when I see something I like on my iPad, I take a screenshot. Here are some of those.
I've been waiting for this book to come out since 2011. My mom read the first two in the trilogy when she visited last year and told me the 3rd was coming out in March. Now it's October. So depressing.
I rarely pin/re-post teaching memes or quotes because if you've seen one, you've seen them all. But this was particularly descriptive and very true. My level of multi-tasking is somewhere in the Chuck Norris range of things.
One of my students loves unicorns. She wrote an entire book about them that's a bit like a graphic novel. I was going to let her type it this week. Go all whole-child in my methods and give her a task that will motivate and excite her.
Speaking of students...I spent the better part of Wednesday afternoon trying to figure out how to arrange seats so the students don't bother each other and don't bother me. I have 27 students and their desks are huge so my options are limited. They're in tables and I told them they just need to learn how to get along (every day is a, literal, battle).
I might try this though. I'd forgotten about it until I found it on my iPad this weekend.
And I'm not sure what it says about me that I find this so amusing. I bet Kevin Chang is a millionaire now.
Do you screenshot pictures and completely forget about them? Most of these were from last fall.
