FlipQuiz for Making Review Games

This week I became aware of an amazing new FREE website called FlipQuiz. 

FlipQuiz provides educators with a quick way to create game show style boards for test review in the classroom. 

I use to make these Jeopardy type games using Power Point, but they would take me F.O.R.E.V.E.R.  Now you can select your category titles, type in questions, and the answers are optional.  In just minutes I had an amazing review for our Mid Module 5 Test. 

With FlipQuiz, questions are displayed on-screen and boards are saved for later use. 

Give FlipQuiz a try when creating your next review quiz.

March Currently 2014

Can you believe it, March already!?!?!?!

I'm linking up with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade for this month's Currently!

This afternoon I am LISTENING to Natalie (who is 4 months old today) slurping on the side of her hands while she swings in her swing and I type away.

I am absolutely LOVING the weekend.  This past week was my first full week teaching since I had Natalie and was out on maternity leave.  It is truly bitter sweet being back in the classroom.  I love teaching and interactive with staff, parents, and students.  However, I miss sweet Natalie terribly when I am away.

I have spent a good chunk of the morning WONDERING how in the world I will ever complete even a fraction of my to-do list.  I planned on today being my "get it all done" day and Sunday just relaxing and spending time with the baby and hubby.

So far, my morning has not been as productive as I would have liked it to be.  Which leads me to begin WANTING to clone myself.  I could have a school Jenny and a home Jenny.  Wouldn't that just be dandy?  I feel like I've divided myself in half this week and it is hard to piece myself back together each evening when I return home.  Everyone tells me each day will get easier.  I'm still holding out for a little relief.

I am definitely NEEDING a back massage after a week on my feet.  I now have a new appreciation for all you working moms (and dads).

Lastly, can you guess the ????? that goes with my answer?
