Lions and Tigers and Technology Oh My!

Technology is a scary beast in my mind!  That is why it is amazing that I jumped into the land of blogging in May and TpT in August!  I have grown by leaps and bounds, but there is still so much more to learn in both these arenas.  I have not only surprised myself, but my husband as well:)

So I am linking up with Kathleen at Growing Kinders with my technology resolution.  The scary technology beast still needs to be conquered and 2013 is the year.  I do not have a Smart Board, and I am OK with that...for now:)  However, I do have clickers (am I dating myself?).  I WILL get them installed and I VOW to USE them by February!  Does anyone else have clickers?  Suggestions for activities are welcome!

We do use our 4 computers and listening center daily.  Razz-Kids is our new favorite website  and I am so thankful to our principal for purchasing this for us:)  The kids are totally addicted to it!!

So head on over and link up and check back tomorrow with Second Grade Shenanigans for the Organization Resolution Linky.

  1. Thanks for becoming a follower of mine! Do you like Razz-Kids? I have been a long time user of Reading A to Z and last year used Vocabulary A to Z with my ELD group but haven't used Razz-Kids. I will have to look into it.

  2. I have clickers in my room. The students love them, but they are just a pain to set up every year. However, I use them with Study Island (they have a clicker option), with quizzes on BrainPop, Jr. and the videos that have quizzes at the end on United Streaming.

    Good luck!
