Thursday, October 24, 2013 1 comment
Hi everyone! Happy Thursday = )

I was reading a blog recently and came across a site that I love! Thank you Lauren at for this great resource. I really enjoy listening to music and I use music all the time with my students and teachers for transitions and for different activities. I believe in the power of music to completely change ones learning mode and emotions.

This site is not only FREE, but fun in the way it lays out the music you choose.

Check out

Let's say it's Monday morning and your students are lagging. You want to get them engaged and ready to learn. Choose the topic that will fit...Click and play!

There are lots of topics to choose from and even music without lyrics for when your students are writing or focusing on an activity.

For iPad and Android users, there is an app for Songza!!

Disclaimer: With any music, note that songs with lyrics could possibly contain inappropriate words. Always Preview! 

Have fun and happy listening!

Apple Launches NEW iPad "Apps for Teachers"

Sunday, October 6, 2013 No comments
I don't know about you, but I am excited that Apple has launched a new iPad "Apps for Teachers" section.

We are being heard = )

There are two new sections that have been added to the App store to meet the needs of those who use the App store the most. Many districts are now BYOD or they are providing students with iPads or other devices. It is important that those who are using these tools get the best resources possible. I am thankful that I no longer have to spend hours looking for credible resources that are worth the download. Thank you for making my life a little bit easier.

Now I am hopeful that Android will jump on board as I am a dual platform kind of girl!
