I would love to share a website with you today! Have you ever heard of Oxford Owl? I was in need of free interactive readers my students could use on computers or on their tablets and I came across the cutest FREE website called Oxford Owl. It is very easy to set up a log on for your class using your email address. I gave my class an easy password to remember like "class", once logged on they will see a home screen like this:
They can then search for books by age level, series or theme.

Each book has audio, at least two activities and some are interactive. 
The cutest thing about this website is that it's from England and most of the narration is in an English accent, I just love hearing it and so do the students. It does not have a ton of books to choose from so far but they have added to it even since I first discovered it. And for a free service, it is awesome!

Have you had Spring Break? We are on Spring Break this week and it is just heaven! I love being able to spend time relaxing and hanging out with my family. I am also getting caught up on some projects that I need to work on. And I am thinking a little bit about next week. We are going to be full-on test prep when we get back, but I did find some fun Spring Break freebies I wanted to share with you....I am going to try to sneak in some fun stuff as we prepare for our HUGE standardized tests that are coming up. Here are some super cute freebies I found that you might want to try out too. All with a Spring Break theme:

Hope you get to enjoy your Spring Break!

I was at IKEA, one of my favs, and I found these cute little lights that you plug into your usb on your computer. It let's you work in the dark and still see the keyboard, which I do frequently after hubby goes to sleep or when my class is watching a video. They were only $4.99. So I got the idea to give them to my team for all their hard work this year.
Here's the one from IKEA: LED USB lamp  but I also found a similar one on Amazon. These are the ones that I bought for my colleagues at work. Gooseneck LED lamp $5.25.

You can get my little label here if you like this idea! I'm sure there are many people who "light" up your days! This would make great teacher appreciation gifts for your own kid's teachers too!
