Time to Document

Every year, I go through my old cryptic notes of what I did last year. I also have an Excel spreadsheet where I keep track over almost 300 things I want K-8 to accomplish. Enter Google Docs. I am creating a file for each grade.

Now, when I complete the work week, I'm going to try to update Google Docs. I just completed my tasks for grade four and five for the last two weeks. They were writing short paragraphs in Word and reviewing key tasks from last year. Grade four was writing about their favorite DreamWorks film. Grade five was writing about their favorite prayer. Even if you don't want to do those exact prompts, I'd be happy to include you as a view of the document. Leave a comment and I'll be happy to add you as a viewer.


  1. Thank you for all of this great information--I can't stop reading your blog! I am a second year teacher and will be starting the technology class for my elementary this year. Needless to say I have been a bit overwhelmed, but I am so gratefull for the ideas I am finding here!

  2. I'm glad that you're finding my posts useful. I just looked at the Google Doc and noticed that I only made two entries. I ended up only keeping my Excel spreadsheet up to date. If there is anything I can help you with, please feel free to drop me a note. Good luck with the technology class!
