Nothin’ Like A Free Book!

And if you’re willing to read at least eight books this summer, Barnes and Noble will give you one…a free book! There’s just one little catch…you’re all too old to participate. Sorry. This is only for kids in first through sixth grades. Ok, I know you’re probably asking yourself, “Um, so, why exactly are you telling us this, McTeach?” My response:

Um…hellooooooo!! Weren’t you listening??? I said…FREE BOOKS!!!

Ok, so seventh and eighth graders won’t be able to benefit from this, don’t you know someone who can? A younger sibling, perhaps? Or a cousin? Someone you babysit? Whoever!

FREE BOOKS, people!! ‘Nuff said!

So pass on this address to anyone you think might benefit: 2010 Barnes & Noble Summer Reading.

Are You Bored Yet?

Greetings you future Eighth Graders, you! Are you looking for something to do yet? Because you know I have ideas! As you may remember, I’ll be attending the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Conference in Denver at the end of this month. I will be surrounded by thousands of educators from around the world while I’m there! I was thinking today that it might be the perfect place to spread a little Hope. Who’s with me? Care to make some fabulous Hope Notes for me to take to Denver? Send me an email if you’re willing and/or able to help out.

Middle School Reading Challenge

Thanks to Luke and Madeleine, the Eighth Grade Class pulled closer to the Seventh Grade Class today in the Middle School Reading Challenge. Have you been reading? Have you sent McTeach your pages yet? What are you waiting for? Here are the links you’ll need to help your class stay ahead of my future Seventh Graders:

Happy Reading!!

Uber Coolness!

I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but I’m so sad that we don’t have school tomorrow! I won’t be able to share my amazingly good news with you in person. Ah well, I guess I’ll just have to blog about it.

Great Google-y Moogle-y!!

So, guess where I’ll be going in July! Oh, yeah…that would be the Googleplex in Mountain View! I’ve been accepted to attend the Google GEO Teacher’s Institute. I can’t tell you how excited I am, but at the same time bummed that I won’t be able to share it with all of you. I’m sure to learn some amazingly cool stuff (yes, I said “stuff”!) about Google Earth, Maps, and Sketchup, all of which will come in very handy in the fall when I put you back to work!! 🙂

I hope you all are enjoying your first few days of summer. Read any good books yet? If so…why haven’t you posted them?!! I’m trying to decide which book I’ll read first: The Magician by Michael Scott or A People’s History of the World. Hmmm…

By the way…what do you think of your lockers now?

Looks pretty cool, eh? I’m sorry I couldn’t get all of them up there…y’all did such a wonderful job on these murals. One more thing…whose is this?!?!

It’ll be in lost and found! Can anyone guess what I was trying to do with this photo?
