Mobile Planning Checklist!

Hey everyone, I'm blogging over at The Primary Pack today but wanted to share here too! Today I'm sharing how I balance my school life with mobile planning checklists using iCloud.  I was completely inspired by Schroeder Shenanigans in 2nd's Organizing Bundle but knew how I was with paper and needed something mobile. If you know anything about me, I love lists and technology. The two together go hand in hand in my book! This is perfect for all you, on the go teachers and the best part is it's completely free and available on both Windows and Apple!


Start off by going to iCloud.com on your Windows or Mac and sign in with your iTunes account (who doesn't have one of those?!).


After signing in, click on the Notes button.


You'll want to create a new note by clicking the little icon that looks like a post-it and pencil. Create your title, think of your subjects you want to include in your checklist. I love being able to see everything on one screen!

Here is a cheat sheet of the keyboard codes you can use to customize your checklist! You can make a column of bullets by adding a space and skipping a line like I have above!


Now you are ready to go on any device! Making it so much easier to check off those everyday things! I hope I've inspired some of you to go digital. Let me know if you have any questions about this process! :)



Olaf Art Project!


We all know, everyone and their mom has seen, heard and sung along to Frozen. When looking for a fun winter project to do with my kiddos, I thought why not the oh so adorable OLAF!


I begin researching online and stumbled across this AMAZING website called Art For Kids Hub. Not only did they have step by step picture for drawing Olaf, they also had a video that my kiddos could watch too! This website even has a printable direct drawing instructions for your kiddos who may have been absent. We will definitely be visiting this website again soon, my kiddos noticed a lot of fun characters from the shows they watch at home. Hmmm, I'm thinking a future reward??


After their drawings are done, you want them to outline all of pencil lines with a black crayon. They want to make sure they fill in with black, his eye balls, eyebrows and buttons. Once they are finished with the black, they will be going over all of Olaf's white parts with a white crayon. This will make it WAY easier to paint the background because of the wax resistance.


Finally, they will begin painting! I showed my kids a few tips to water color because they were nervous with their drawing. The wetter the brush, the lighter the color and how to put paint on a spread it with water to create a ombre effect.


I'd say these are worth melting for! :)
