Text Notifications from Your Google Calendar

Did you know that you can get text notifications from your Google Calendar? 
You can! 
How cool is that? 

Here's how: 
1. Log into your Google account and navigate to your Google Calendar.

2. Click the down arrow next to your Calendar name and choose Reminders and Notifications from the drop down menu.

3. At the bottom of the page, click on Set Up your mobile phone to receive notifications. 

4. Fill in your phone number and click Send Verification Code. 
Once you receive the code, enter it into the box and click Finish Setup. 

5. On the main settings page, select those events you'd like reminders for and click Save at the bottom of the page. 

Super easy to set up such a great way to be reminded 
of events and changes to your calendar!

Google Forms NOW CUSTOMIZABLE

I love all things Google and use Google forms all the time. 
They are so easy to make and share and such a fast,
easy way to collect information from people. 

The one thing I did NOT love about Google forms was the super limited amount of themes
and in inability to customize a form. 
The themes they had were super simple and plain and downright boring. 
I have thought so many times- why don't they make them more customizable?
Well yesterday they did and I AM SO STINKIN' EXCITED!

When you create a new form now, you'll see a button at the top labeled Change Theme

Clicking on that button opens a pane on the right side of your screen. 

You can scroll down the list to see the 24 new themes (some ARE cute!)

or click on Customize to create you own! 


From there, you can choose from some of the many images they now have or 
add your own photos or logos to the header, 
customize fonts and colors, pick a background, and more.
I love that you can even change the font size for questions or answers 
and import your own header and background.  
Way to go Google!

Class Rules- Take 2


I can't believe it's been over three years since I posted my first version of a Class Rules poster.
The older you get, the faster time sure does fly! 


I decided that it was time to update it and since 
I've gotten many requests to change the class rules poster over the year,
 I decided to make it one that you can customize!


In this version, the top line, where you put your name, 
and the last line, where you can enter your own rule, 
are fillable. 

When you download the PDF and open it, 
you'll find that the top line and bottom line are boxes you can type in. 
Type in your title and own rule and save and then print! 

You can download the PDF HERE
{And if you are using a Mac, be sure to download and Save the PDF before opening!}

A Prayer for the First Day of School

Several years ago I found this fabulous prayer online somewhere. 
I have no idea who wrote it {there was no attribution} 
but I absolutely fell in LOVE with it.
I truly believe it's the prayer 
a teacher should pray every single day of the school year. 

With school about to start I decided to update it.
Wouldn't it be a fabulous present to give to a teacher as a first day of school gift?
