S is for... Sad, Secondary, Spartans, & Saturday

Today I am dedicating my blog to the letter S.

S for “S”ad teacher… I cannot figure out how to reply to your comments!! I am so frustrated – when I attempt to reply to your comments and click on “reply” nothing happens. I can scroll down and comment, but that is not what I want to do…if anyone can help me I will change my dedication to you!!

I just don’t want to seem like the mysterious blogger – I really want to be able to reply to you!!!

S for “S”econdary! I am linking with Live. Teach. Create today to share a secondary product. Although, I am not currently teaching secondary, I have quite a few resources that fit into that category. That is what happens when you’re there for 3 years and teach AG, regular education, and inclusion classes – you amass a rather large and assorted collection.

 
When I taught 7th grade my two favorite book studies were The Giver and The Cay. I loved reading both of these books with my students. It is amazing how much you learn about your students through their response to literature. Hopefully you can use them in your classroom.

I know my students loved the movie project with The Cay. Their final assignment was to design a movie poster for the book. They loved it! I was truly amazed to see their creative (and sometimes emotional) sides come out in their work.

S for “S”partan football! I couldn’t leave out my Saturday football. Let’s go State!

 
Have a great “S”aturday all!

  1. Thanks for linking up to your blog. I do wish more had as that was what I was expecting for more interaction between teachers but to this I must learn. :)

    1. It seems to let me click "reply" and comment underneath on your blog! Could it be the browser you're using? (Sometimes on my school iPad certain things don't work quite right.)

      I like to reply by email when I can on my blog, though- some people don't have it set up, but for those that do, it sends them an email with my reply so that I know they actually see it. (I'm sure most don't come BACK to my blog looking for a reply.) I have Blogger set to send comments to my email, and then I can hit reply just like a normal email (except when the person hasn't set it up and it says no-reply.blogger - there's nothing I can do about that!)

      Good luck!

  2. My comment is brought to you by the letter "F". That was Funny. Feel free to stop by my blog and leave a friendly comment. I'll promise to follow and frequent your blog.

  3. Hmmm.... I always thought that a reply was leaving a comment. It shows up below the comment and indented (see an example: http://www.teachertreasurehunter.blogspot.com/2012/11/digital-student-portfolios.html#comment-form). Have you had it do something different? Were you wanting to reply by email? Hope you can get it all figured out! It's frustrating when technology doesn't do what we want it to do! :) I just found your blog via the Diving into Learning giveaway and am now following. I also have a product that is part of the giveaway. Hope it helps many others find our blogs! :) Happy Holidays!
