Tech Tip { New to Me}

Hey all
Shuna here
Short post but I wanted to tell you about I quick tip that I just figured out
It may be common to some of you but what is common for everyone else is not really to me, ha
My folks always say that I am book smart but the common sense part flew right over my head
So don’t laugh or roll your eyes if you already knew this
K
I mean it
No rolling your eyes
Cause you know I can see that kind of thing
Here goes
I just figured out how to apply multiple clipart items in a powerpoint slide all at once
You know when you using clipart lettering and it is a pain to select each letter and insert it into a 
powerpoint

A little Late { Elf Antics}

So this post is very very late but I have had absolutely no freakin energy to do anything
Hiya Peeps 

Long time no blog
Well I am going to try to do better but this year is seriously stressing me out!!!!
This week has been very busy for us
First I read the story The Elf on the Shelf to my kiddos
and I asked them if they wanted a elf to come visit our room and they all shouted yes.
So I told them that if they wanted an elf to come visit our school then they had to write a special 
request to Santa.

Holly Blogger and an Update

Hi all
Shuna here
I hope that you had a great Christmas!
I got to travel here for Christmas
Beautiful isn’t it
I spent a week in El Paso, TX
For some reason I was under the impression that it was a small town
Very small
but boy was I in for a surprise!!!! This baby is huge
Most of you know that my brother is in the Army and he is stationed in El Paso.
He is scheduled to deploy in January so my family decided to spent Christmas with him
Anyhoo
I participated in the Holly Blogger Exchange 
It was so much fun and I couldn’t wait to get my goodie from a blogger friend
I am late posting because I just got back and just now got to open my gift!
Here is my gift that I am in super duper love with!
Thanks Michelle 
So cute
Apparently my small problem with kit kats is getting around!
As you can see I ate some before snapping the picture
Are you in love with the cute paper and frame that Michelle used for my gift? You can scoop it up free here 
If you would like to participate in the next blogger exchange hop on over to and follow
Now I am off to sleep 
The almost 18 hour drive from El Paso has worn me out
Here are a couple more pics from my trip

                    
As you can see I have a small obsession with mountains. I climbed one once while in Chattanooga but that is whole nother story! Lets just say that the trip down was a lot faster than going up……
Peace out Peeps

Teaching Writing and Some Freebies

Hiya peepers
Shuna here
I am in need of a serious mental break
I am counting down the days till I get to the much needed break

I am linking up for the 12 Days of Christmas
Shout out for Tiffany at Time 4 Kindergarten for hosting
So today’s topic is how do you teach writing?
I have blogged about how I use the 4 square method to help my kiddos develop their writing skills and
in past years it has been a very useful tool in helping my littles improve their writing skills! But this
year it is going much slower than I would like. My kiddos are just not doing well with it. They are able
to get 1 or 2 good sentences but they are not able to give anymore than that. They are having such a hard
time writing more than a few sentences on a given topic. So I have started sending a Write Away sheet
home with them each week. I was a little skepetical as to how it would go but it has been pretty good
and I am starting to see the results in class!

Here are the first few that I used in my class

I am planning to do a new one each week and uploading it for all of my peepers

I have updated these freebie and have added several more topics.
You can get the updated copy by clicking the pic below

I shared these writing cards a little while ago and I thought that I would post them again in case you missed them

I am linking up with Freebielicous

Enjoy and Peace Out Peeps

Hop on over to Maria’s blog to see what goodie she has for you today
