Projects by Jen

Having trouble finding projects that meet various standards(Reading, Math, and Technology)? Check out Project's by Jen site. She has made it easy to not only meet course of study requirements, but to give your students a chance to collaborate with classrooms across the country. This was one of my favorite sites to use in my classroom. My students loved the various projects from OREO's to Lucky Charms, but I think their favorite was the Holiday Card Exchange. All kids enjoy getting mail! Details and requirements for the projects are all listed on the site, so check it out!


Welcome to my new blog adventure! I've been doing a personal one since January, but finally felt led to start one professionally. I love technology and finding new resources. I had my own K-1 classroom for the last five years, and this year I'm the inclusion special education teacher. I serve two schools and between both schools I service every grade level, K-6. I have presented for the past two summers at Alabama's state technology conference sharing tips and "treasures" with other teachers. Even though I no longer have my own classroom, I still enjoy finding sites to help other teachers. Hence this blog. I will share some of my favorite treasures along with some new ones that I find. If you are looking for something, leave a comment and let's help each other look! I've read the research on technology and how using it keeps the students engaged, and I've seen it in action. This is an interactive age, so let's do what we can to meet their needs while helping them learn at the same time.
