Free Fonts, Egg-speriments, and Shake Breaks!

This chick has been a BUSY BUSY bee!! I have been trying to post for like a week, but just can't seem to find the time!! I have been up to a lot and want to share a few things!

First up, OUR WHOLE SCHOOL (teachers that is) GOT iPADS!! How cool is that!??!! I have been dying to get one and now I don't have to! Each teacher only got one, so I have to get creative with how to use it in the classroom. =) 

I have also been waiting to get one so that I could download the app, iFontmaker, and create my own fonts! Sooo, that's pretty much the first thing I did when I got it...I might have been doing that during one of my planning period at school! SHHHH! Don't tell!!

Anyway, they are all free and can be downloaded right from my sidebar underneath where it says fonts. Here is what they look like!

I have actually added two more since creating the picture above and they are also in my side bar for your downloading pleasure! =)

I also used my iPad this week to video our Egg Float Egg-speriment! The kids absolutely loved it! I could only upload 15 minutes of the video so you won't get to see the very end -- it's only 16 minutes so you don't miss much, but this lesson is a great way to introduce the Scientific Method! Check it out below! I know it's kind of long, but it's so neat to see the progression of the lesson from the outside! I might also develop a slight stutter during one part, so please forgive me!! HAHA

UGH!! My arms look so fat in that video! Eek!! lol

And finally, I finished my SHAKE Break file! Remember I told you about this guy??

Well, instead of having a regular ole dance party shake break, I thought it would be TOTALLY awesome to have a Disco Party and turn on the colored disco ball for two minutes while they break it down!! Hopefully, I don't get in trouble for this

Anyway, here is the complete file! There are 42 Shake Breaks included with directions for each one! P.S. Shake Breaks are just my version of Brain Breaks. 

 I cannot wait to print these bad boys off tomorrow and start using them! I plan on incorporating them with my WBT scoreboard! I will still use the brain breaks as necessary in class, but I have a feeling the students will be begging for more so I think if I link it to the scoreboard, they will totally work their little butts off to earn one! They will try to earn a Shake Break instead of 1 minute of extra recess for the scoreboard game.

You can get this file for $3.50 at either one of shops by clicking below!

And don't forget about the Carolina Blogger Meet Up! Please go visit Hope's FB event to RSVP so we can get an accurate head count! Just click the picture below to head over.


  1. You know I am so going to use your fonts! I LOVE them! I too told my hubby I want an IPad so I can make fonts! haha! Maybe I will get one!

    Love your shake breaks! How are you going to use it with WBT? Every time they get a point? or at the end of the day if they win?

    1. Thanks for asking! I just updated that part! Apparently I didn't explain it! =) They will work to earn an "extra" brain break as part of the scoreboard game instead of extra recess or no homework.

    2. Sounds awesome! I was thinking the same thing! I can't wait to use it!

  6. Don't you just love your iPad! If your school needs training, I can do it. I've been training teachers and faculties all summer! I have some ideas for you as well. Just shoot me an email and we can meet up and chat.

  7. I love your new fonts. I had to download before I even finished reading the rest of your blog.

    I just bought a Disco Ball at Target today on clearance. I am having a Rock Star Day but it would be a great thing to do as a Brain Break.

  14. What?! You can make fonts on the Ipad?! I had no idea! I'm excited to try it out.
    Ginger, I have one Ipad that I use with my students and it actually became one of my math station activities. I found a ton of math apps that the kids used to practice their math facts. They were verrrry careful with it and I never had any problems.
