Just For Fun!

Being the pinterestaholic (not sure that is a real word) that I am, I came across this fabulous idea to create an All About Me book about myself for the first day of school.  You can check it out at  Team Johnson!

Since, my district is trying to find new ways to incorporate technology into everyday classroom activities I decided to create a smilebox for my All About Me book.  I also decided to incorporate pictures of my family as well as pictures of myself when I was in pre-k.

I plan on playing it without the music so that I can narrate the pictures for my kiddos.  I can only imagine the giggles I am going to get when they see me when I was their age!

If you are interested in making a smilebox of your own it is absolutely FREE!!!!

I am so excited that my school is providing websites for us to use this year.  I can not wait to utilize this tool to enhance my classroom!  I think this is going to be an important part of my classroom this year.

Technology is such a huge part of everyone's lives today and Heather over at Kickin' It In Kinder   has encouraged me with her fabulous post about QR codes.  You must go and check it is my version!

I would like to thank Mrs. Slatton Kindergarten for nominating me for these two awards!!!!!  Thank you so much.   I did not even know anyone followed my blog or even new it existed.  I started this blog to give myself a place to reflect on daily activities in my classroom, and to hopefully become a better teacher.  There are so many amazing blogs out there and I have learned so much for each and every one that I follow (which is probably too many to count...haha).

Seven Random Facts About Myself

1. I did not have a name for the first two weeks of my life because my father wanted to name me after his favorite football team (the best football team in my opinion)--The Georgia Bulldogs.  My mom finally gave in and named me Georgia, and I am so grateful for this name!!!!

2.  I love photography!  I have recently started a side business called Simplyfotography by Georgia (as if I don't have enough to do).

3.  I am blessed to have a wonderful husband and two beautiful girls, Alexis and Ansley!

4.  My husband and I owned a Real Estate business before I became a teacher.
