Evernote in my classroom

How many of us scribble notes about students and then put them somewhere to never be found again??  I knew I need to change how I tracked items in my classroom!  I found an amazing app called EVERNOTE.  It has changes how I organize files, notes from kids, tracking reading skills and everything in between. 

 Think of "folders" that we all have in our classroom.  I created a Folder for the subjects that I wanted to add information.  For example...Daily 5/Cafe, Math, and checklists.  Within each one you can add your student's names.  Almost like a folder within a folder.  This is an amazing way to keep reading conference information. I have even recording my student's reading!
Probably the one feature that I love the most is to create checklists.  This is very easy to make and then display on the board.  The kids love to go up and check off their name on a given projects.  I use it to track which student brought back their dentist's forms and other important papers. 
I know that there is so much that I could do with Evernote and I am so excited to stretching myself with new technology!  I found an amazing blog that walks you through setting up Evernote.  Make sure to check it out!

  4. Hi, I thought that this new teacher-seller website might interest you. They are based in Canada and offer features that are not found on similar sites. They also have a lot of new features coming. Here is a link: Created by Teachers, Exclusively for Teachers
