Motion Makers

If you and/or your classroom teachers are doing some great exercises that can also be used as classroom brain breaks and you wouldn’t mind recording the class or individual doing the exercise with narration, I’d love to put it on the new Motion Makers blog for everyone to use.
Also, for student safety reasons, please make sure all recorded kids have permission for their images to be publicly viewed.

Infinite Campus Reminder

Good morning!
For those of you who are setting up your class rosters and gradebooks from Infinite Campus to your iPad, please keep in mind that when you start sorting out your classes and creating your tabs, you’ll need to Save As… Excel Workbook (.xlsx), if you don’t save it that way, when you go to re-open the document, you’ll just have your last class you created staring you in the face. All of your previous work and tabs will be deleted and you’ll need to begin again.

There is a longer way to avoid this, by just opening up your IC data on your iPad and sorting it that way. It does take longer, but there won’t be any chance of you losing your previous work…

Deadline for lesson plans

Good afternoon,

If you attended the monthly Fall River meetings this past year, please keep in mind the lesson plan deadline for submittal on the blog is Friday, May 23rd.  Please contact C. Hoople for any clarification on amount expected/month.

With an infant arrival in late May and a toddler’s 2nd birthday in mid-June, any submissions after May 23rd will result in getting them posted sometime in 2020 🙂

Thank you,



3 Zone Tee Ball

Batters try to knock over bowling pins. Fielders try to protect them by catching a ball and placing it in a barrel. When the batters run out of balls they rotate to a new zone.

I will write this up but thought you all might be interested. Watch the video, these are 2nd graders. I do this with k-2.

Zone 1 batters
Zone 2 infielders
Zone 3 outfielders
