1. Folks, this was shared with us last week by Joe Goldman, Supervisor of Technology. Clever has backup codes in case a student's log in is not working. In a nutshell, it's a way teachers can get their students into Clever when there is a problem such as the student forgot their Google password. Why would we need this? It could come in handy during a time crunch situation where the teacher can't wait on help from others like IT. Check out the short article below.
2. This resource is specifically designed for younger students who are asked to drag the box cars on to the track to create a pattern. To download your own copy, just click the image. I created this using Google slides. If you would like to create your own games, just let me know. I can show you how!
I was recently on a Facebook site for STEAM teachers where these books were being promoted. If you are looking for ways to incorporate literacy into your math instruction, check these out!
4. This resource will be a game changer! This educator has created a spreadsheet (with directions) that will help you sort your students into various groups for reading, math, or group project using data. Please let me know if you want to play around with this and need assistance.
5. Monday Movie: Just because I can. LOL!!
Hi, my name is Melanie Lewis. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Amherst County Public Schools, located in the beautiful state of Virginia. I LOVE my job! I get to work on my hobby, anything that has to do with computers. I get to work with teachers and students, and I am definitely a people person. Plus, I DO NOT have to give grades. Wonderful, huh? Let me know how I can help you better integrate technology into your classroom.

I know only one thing about the technology that awaits us in the future: We will find ways to tell stories with it. ~Jason Ohler
