At the beginning of 2016, several bloggers shared their one little word for the year. Mine was "change." This month has been a perfect example! I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to share the excitement with you.
We're moving to Nevada. Next month we'll be packing things up and moving across country. It's been a long time in the works and it's finally really happening. Ben and I flew out and went house hunting this week. We have a huge adventure ahead! 25 hours in the car with the kids and a Uhaul…piece of cake.
I was offered a teaching position in the new city! My last two schools' mascots were bulldogs. Now I'll be a pirate! I think that calls for some coordinating Kendra Scott earrings to celebrate the occasion. What do you think of these?
On a much more minor note, but still worth celebrating, I stopped by the Target Dollar Spot in the new city and they had all their teacher stuff out and pretty! I walked away with a pretty impressive haul, which was good because when we got back home, our Target was completely cleaned out!
And finally, we're two weeks into our Explore Like a Pirate book study. It's all about designing game-based classes (and using your current content) to engage your learners. If you've missed it so far, you can check it out here. AND there's still time to link up if you'd like to join us on this gamification journey! (FYI: It's FREE on Kindle Unlimited right now!)
