In 2014, my hubby and I spent a ton of time renovating parts of our home and continued to feed our passion for travel. I continued growing my Teachers Pay Teachers store, my Facebook page, and my blog, plus I also started using Instagram! I am very blessed to have reached some significant milestones both on TpT and my blog this past year.
Some of you have been with me since the very beginning, and others are fairly new, so today I am counting down my

Brag Tags arrived!
This particular set of tags was extra-special because I was able to work together with the staffs at School Life AND GoNoodle to create these custom designs of my very own!
With the purchase of a new iPad came the hunt for great apps for my classroom. The absolute BEST app purchase I made this year was on iDoceo - a fantastic application for classroom planning and data storage.
I am in no way affiliated with the iDoceo company, I just love how much easier this app makes my job! (Plus, I was pretty proud of myself for figuring most of the features out on my own!)
Because I've been loving it so much, I wrote a series of blog post tutorials to help other teachers get started with this. You can find all the posts by clicking the heading above!
Go on, you stretchy stretchers, Maximo says you need to check this post out!
If you haven't read it you absolutely must click through - I've included a video reading of the story. As soon as I saw it I recognized the possibilities for using this as a mentor text in my classroom. My 2/3 class did some awesome writing and art, but I would even have used this book with my fifth grade students - it is perfect for teaching the writing trait voice!!

In this post I introduced the T.A.C.K. Board. A way of displaying learning goals for my students in a similar style to a CAFE board, the T.A.C.K. Board is a living, breathing (well, not quite), ever-changing part of my classroom.
The idea has been picked up for use in tons of other classrooms around the province since this first post, including Runde's Room where you can see some middle school uses for this awesome resource!

I'd like to take this final opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your continued support over this last year. I truly appreciate every visit, every comment, every share. I hope you'll continue to join me here, and on Facebook and Instagram, as I continue to share ideas, products, and freebies in 2015!
