My Favorite Techy Tools

Miss Snowden is hosting a linky party with favorite techy tools for teaching.  I love all the typical things, document camera, projector etc. . . . and would LOVE a SMARTboard,  but one of my FAVORITE (and most used) tools is good ol' Excell.

I use Excell to keep track of my classroom data.  I took all of our Kindergarten standards for both math and reading and created checklists for each one.  I then created "workbooks" with sheets for each of my kiddos

When it comes time to assess all my little darlings, I just pull them over and check their letters, numbers, etc. . . and mark it on their personalized sheet.  When it's time to print the sheets off to send home with Report Cards, and to stick in my Data Notebook, I just print the whole workbook - easy peasy, lemon squeezy.


  1. Thanks so much for linking up! I would love to learn more about your life and teaching in Alaska. At my school in Texas, we don't have outdoor recess if it is 41 degrees or less. Haha!!

  2. This is such an incredible and excellent idea.
    I do something similar and use the data when I meet with parents to talk about their children.
    I try to create an assessment that reflects each standard but at times I find this to be a real challenge. You are on top of your game! Stay warm and cozy!
