You Oughta Know for April

Hi friends! It's time for another month of...
Jasmine from buzzing with Mrs. McClain is the genius behind the fabulous blog hop!
I love love LOVE apps that are effective yet easy to use for my classroom. Here are two I currently use during spelling station or word work. (And they're free, hooray!)

How cool is this app? Kids ooh and ahh at how the colors change with each stroke of their finger.
Yes, it's true. Big shocker I know. Ha!
Who's getting excited?!
This app could also be used for math practice. There is an option for work to be printed, but I don't tell my minis that or we'd run out of ink every day. Kids Doodle is available for iPad and Android tablets.
Remember the old school magnetic letters? Magnetic ABC has a free and paid version. The free version comes with letters and different backgrounds to choose from.

The paid version is $1.99 which includes numbers and some other features.

April Currently

Oh em gee y'all I'm so glad to have a three day weekend The minis were on a roll this week! It's time for another month of Currently hosted by Farley.
Before I get to the currently fun, check out some of the amazing landmark projects from my class this week.
Pearl Harbor

Grand Ole Opray

Niagara Falls

Listening- GDFR stands for Going Down for Real. It's a song by Flo Rida and it's so catchy I can't get it out of my head. Whenever I hear it on the radio I turn up the volume!
Loving- Hooray for three day weekends!
Thinking- I do have some things I'd like to accomplish today, but I also need to relax. Sometimes we as teachers volunteer and do so much that we forget about ourselves.
Wanting- A quirky fact about me; I don't drink coffee but I love Starbucks! My favorite drink for warm weather and sunny days is the passion tea lemonade.
Needing- I'm going to Disney World in June! I'll be there for five days and I'm wearing a different Disney themed shirt each day. Here are two finished shirts I shared on Facebook a couple of days ago.

I'm waiting on my last order or shirt transfers from Etsy so I can finish. All my shirt transfers came from the amazing BananaBelle23 on Etsy. If you need any Disney shirts I highly recommend her. She's great to work with and keeps communication open with her customers.
Eggs-plain- I originally was going to name my blog Will Teach for Cupcakes, but found that name taken after a Google search. I then started playing around with other names involving teaching and cupcakes then my blog name was born.
