Click the links, dig through the archives, and remember all the cool things that went down right here last year at this time.

Read all of the posts from last October. . .

or just these

Tackling NaNoWriMo – Am I Crazy – Last year, in the midst of teaching, I decided to try this novel writing challenge. I actually pulled it off as well, writing a 50,000 word novel in only 30 days. I would really like to do it again this year but I’m not sure I’ll have the time. I’ll have to think about it.

Why Are You Learning? – This was a guest post from Hilary over at Positive Letters . . . Inspirational Stories. She addresses students directly in this edition of Teaching Tip Tuesday!

Avril Lavigne Rocks! – It doesn’t seem like a whole year has passed since I saw Avril in concert the last time. It was an exciting night, that’s for sure.

A Blogging Milestone – 100,000 Page Views – I’m almost approaching 200,000 views now. Help me get those numbers up. Thanks!

Where’s My Flying Skateboard – If Back to the Future is as prophetic as Star Trek was, we will have hoverboards some day. I hope so. Perhaps they are only two years away.

5 Steps to Getting Supply Teaching Jobs – If you are an occasional teacher and haven’t been getting much work yet this year, try these handy tips.

Drawing Telephone: A Classroom Game – Got this idea from a comic book of all places. It’s a fun activity you can try with your class.

Thanks for Chasing Content with me!
