Texas Size Link-Up ~ Back to School!

Howdy y’all!  We’re so glad y’all stopped by to see our #backtoschool tips and ideas and enter our Rafflecopter for the 2nd Texas Size Link-Up!  

It’s that time again!  BACK TO SCHOOL!  As teachers, one of the many daunting tasks we’re faced with each week is creating a classroom newsletter.  We spend an hour of our precious time each week compiling all of the week’s highlights, homework, tips, schedules, and important events into a concise front/back page newsletter, hoping to entice our students’ parents to read it.  But if you’re lucky, only a small fraction of them read it.

We live in a visual society, so it makes sense that our classroom newsletters should be visually appealing for parents to read them.  So, to help you make your newsletters POP, we’ve created this HUGE set of fun Superhero/Pop Art ClassroomNewsletter Graphics, Digital Backgrounds, and Editable PowerPoint Templates that are sure to get your class’ parents excited about reading your newsletters! And you're in luck, we're giving it away as a part of this #backtoschool linky!

In this set, you’ll find:

  3. Hi Heather and Ashley,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is: 



    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
