One week into summer


It seems odd but I have downloaded so many “freebie” projects from various teachers at TpT. I have even paid for many but the ones that I use so much at one that I have tweaked to fit my students own needs.

Here it is Sunday morning and I am working of various one page items that I can use this year to demonstrate an item or some such thing(s) in class. I came across a free item today about timelines that I just had to tweak to fit my own needs. It is nothing major but it will get the message across for the other items that we will be doing.

You never know what you can make your own unless you try. I will be going into my third year at my private school this year and I am looking forward to it so much. I even started working towards the upcoming year about six hours after the previous year ended. Fellow teachers have emailed me asking how I can do that instead of enjoying summer. It is just me I told them. My brain works different than theirs.

I worked on lesson ideas on my birthday, I am working o items on Father’s day, I am always thinking of different ways to get the lesson across to my students. I am sorrow but it is just the way I work I guess.

The time line I just tweaked game from Mr. Gallant from Bossier City, La. I didn’t plan it that way. I bought his Jeopardy template that I love and just went to see what he had at his site and there it was – a freebie. I began to tweak it and now it is my own for my own students. It is what I send so much time doing.
 
Mr. G is an elementary teacher and will never know how I am using his freebie but my students will, I can assure you. Teaching at a private school, my students come from all over so their dates and places for 1st grade and/or 6th grade are all different so that will make a group of three's Timeline all different. However they will have to agree on high school graduation even though it may be from different school.
