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.

 Some school years start out much bumpier than others.  This year has definitely been a bumpy one for me.  Nothing seems to be working the way it should, the kids are disappointed that in the first 4 weeks of school they have not had computers available in computer class.  I am feeling frustrated at the lost teaching time (so many things to fit into a 35 min. once a week class!)  This weekend one of my professors from my college (Colorado Christian University) days spoke at church.   Sid Buzzel was/is one of the most influential educators in my life and one the I deeply respect.  He came to teach about education.  It was exactly what I needed, I loved hearing his passion for education and his explanation to parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, children why he is an educator.  He reminded me of why I am an educator.  I miss being taught on a regular basis by Sid.  The church recorded Sid’s inspirationalwords.  I highly recommend this podcast.   I’m sure it won’t take long to figure out why this man made such an impact on me and my teaching career.  I’m ready to press on through the problems and teach my students…with or without computers! :)  Take a break, put your feet up and get renewed.  Let me know what you think and tell us about the influential educators in your world.
