Sign App Now

What it is: Sign App Now is an amazing, simple way to create online sign up sheets.  This website is SO simple to use, you don’t even have to register to use it!  Create a sign up sheet by filling in the name of the sign up sheet, your email address, and your name.  Sign App Now creates a unique link (URL) that can be emailed to everyone that you would like to sign up.  Those who sign up just enter their name (no need for them to register either).  An email adding them to your sign up sheet is sent back to you.  That is it! How to integrate Sign App Now into the classroom: Sign App Now is a great way to help you go paperless in your classroom.  Create sign up sheets for field trips, classroom volunteers, and in school duties or committees.  Sign App Now makes it simple to keep track of volunteers. Tips: I love that Sign App Now requires NO registration from the creator of the sign up sheet and no registration for those who use it to sign up.  It is extremelly quick and easy to use. Leave a comment and tell us how you are using Sign App Now in your classroom.

Holy. Cow.  School has started in full force!  I absolutely love having kids back in the building. It feels alive again, kids bring an energy that can’t be matched.   If you are a teacher, you know that there is an enormous amount of work that goes into starting a year.  It’s a good thing that the kids bring energy, because mine is depleted!  I blame it on the constant stream of school related dreams that happen at the beginning of the school year.  It’s like I never leave that place!  I hope that those of you who are beginning a new year are off to a great start.

Chalkstar to rockstar Anastasis Academy Podcast

I get a lot of questions about Anastasis Academy.  People usually start off with jaws dropped and some disbelief in their eyes, “wait a minute, YOU started a school?”  After some convincing that this AMAZINGNESS really does exist, the litany of questions begin.  How did you do it?  Where did the money come from?  What is different about your school?  In less than 6 months you started the school, seriously?  Recently @michellek107 and I shared the story of Anastasis Academy with @bennettscience on a brand new show called Chalkstar to Rockstar.  Check out this great new show here!
