Giraffe Live Birth

Have you seen the Animal Planet live feed of Katie the giraffe at The Dallas Zoo?  If not, you sho uld definitely check it out.  Animal Planet Giraffe Birth Live
The Dallas Zoo also has a Q&A post on their new Zoo Blog.  Dallas ZooHoo  I am completely obsessed and can't stop watching.  Katie is fed at 5:00 PM CT and is inside all night.  Animal Planet does a great job keeping the live feed interesting and you even get some close up angles of the Giraffe of the Hour!

Okay, I give up....searching for a blog post.

I've been looking and looking for a post someone made in November regarding using QR codes to make a link to a slide show.  They posted the QR code outside their classroom during conferences.  Does this ring a bell with anyone?  If so, can you please share the link.

Classroom Managment Freebie

I don't know about you, but the closer winter break is, the more active my kinders get.  I always start a little extra positive behavior reinforcement this time of the year.   This year I created a little super bear punch card.  I usually order cards from Vista Print, which I love, but this is a whole lot cheaper.  Using Word, I put the JPEG on Avery business cards and hit print.  I tell my kinder that they can earn a "punch" for doing things they should be doing anyway, like cleaning their supplies after they finish a project.  Our classroom elf also gives out punches for good behavior that she sees too.   Clip art is from Scrappin Doodles.

Spicy class soup!

I'm going to have one of those know the kind that makes you a better teacher in the end, but is tough to live through.  I won't go into details.  Every year Kindergarten teachers all over the country get a "class soup."  Since these little ones are new, nobody knows who should or shouldn't be put in the same "class pot."  My soup this year is just a little spicy.
We need lots of brain breaks during the day and thank goodness I have an Activboard to help me out. 
My school system also blocks YouTube, but never answer is here. 
I use RealPlayer Downloader.  I find fabulous videos and download them right to a flash drive to play during the day.  I thought I would share some of my favorite Youtube channels and videos. 

If you haven't checked out Harry Kindergarten,  what are you waiting for?  Drop everything and tune in.  He makes and shares the most amazing videos.  Some are to our favorite class tunes and others to tunes he creates himself.  Awesome stuff.  This is one that we just started watching.
Number Words Rap
I also like Have Fun Learning.  They have lots of videos on Youtube for free! 
Check out this one.
And...of course Sesame Street.  I love love Sesame Street!  Check out Bruno and the monsters!

With my videos ready to use for brain breaks, I might just survive my spicy soup year!
