      Hi Colleen,

      I LOVE Pinterest and am finding all kinds of ways to enhance my teaching, and student learning through its use! Good luck in the contest – what a great prize! I appreciate your stopping by and leaving a comment, and I’m now following you on Pinterest as well.

      Take care,

  • Thea:

    I have been blogging for a few years now, but I have not been very good at keeping up my teacher blog, (I have 3). My class one gets the most updates, then the personal. However, after reading your blog and enthusiasm (much like my own) for technology in the classroom is very exciting!

    Thank you for sharing in this giveaway on Pinterest. I would say that 85-90% of the ideas have used in my room this year, came from Pinterest. I will definitely be following your blog.

    • Suzy Brooks:

      Aw, Thea – thank you for your kind words. I love using my blog as part of my classroom culture, and have come to believe that I could not teach without it! You have some great ideas on your Teacher’s Pet blog – keep sharing and folks will keep checking out what you’re up to! I appreciate your taking the time to stop by and say hello – my students love to see new comments!
      Take care and enjoy the second half of your school year!
      Dream Big,

    • Suzy Brooks:

      Thanks, Jessica! Love your blog, too – you have a ton of super ideas! :)

      Have a great summer!

  • Hi there!
    I found your pinterest board on flipped classrooms. I looked for an email for you but only found your blog. Which is also awesome by the way! I am also a third grade teacher who is currently flipping my classroom. I have created a website as my grad school project that I would love to share with you. I graduate in May with my Master’s in Instructional Technology. I am really loving my flip and am really enjoying collaborating and meeting others who are interested in this topic. Please check me out at Here you can also access my school website where you can see the implementation in action. I’d love to hear from you more where maybe we could share some ideas?

    • Suzy Brooks:

      Hi Jennifer,

      Thanks for stopping by and for saying hello! I have not been flipping my classroom the way that I originally thought I would be. I’ve been calling it Spinning, because “traditional” flipping just doesn’t fit our classroom needs. I created a small series of videos to share with students in school, and to use for review, or students who are absent. I need to create more. Additionally, students have been creating their own videos using their iPads, and then I’ve been watching those at home for the purposes of assessment and lesson planning. Spinning has changed learning in our classroom in a positive way.

      I visited both of your website – and they are super! You and your students have done a great job implementing videos into your teaching and learning. Feel free to share anytime – my email address is on the Contact page here on the blog. :)

      Take care,

  • Judy:

    Hi Suzy,
    I am interested in how you create your Bingo Boards for ideas. Could you share how you create these?

    • Suzy Brooks:

      Hi Judy!
      I started with my first Bingo Board – which was an assignment for my adult students (teachers). I then just duplicated it, changed the colors and brainstormed new ideas for new topics I am familiar with. I guess it isn’t really a “Bingo” game per se, but I like the layout. :)
      Thanks for asking!

      • Andrea Rice:

        Hi Suzy,
        I just sent you a note by email and thanked you for sharing the SeaGlass ideas….
        I used the Bingo idea with Social Studies and called the board: HISTO (with my catchy phrase of “dates, facts, and dead people”)You have so many ideas that I wonder if you ever sleep? Have a super glassy new school year!

        • Suzy Brooks:

          Andrea – that is a SUPER catchy phrase – the kids must love that! :) . Thank you for your comment and your e-mail note – it made me all smiley and I love how people are sharing their own stories on making new transitions and finding their way as teachers.

          I hope you find everything you are looking for in your school year, as well!

          Dream Big,
