Best Assessment Tool Ever

For those of you that do not know about ESGI you have got to check it out.  This software is by far the BEST thing I have used in my classroom to assess students. 

The kids meet with me one-on-one at the computer and in a matter of minutes I can assess my whole class on both Literacy and Math Skills.  When I'm finished I am able to immediately see the strengths and weakness of EACH child in my class.

Parents love the flash cards I can print out and I love that I can create my own assessments in addition to the FABULOUS ones that have already been created.

Click on the ESGI button in my sidebar to check out this GREAT site or click here to check them out!

You will not be disappointed!

Where Have I Been??

I've been blogstalking.  How sad that there are soooo many awesome teacher blogs out there that I can't even pry myself away from them to post on my own blog. 
Pathetic!  Sad! 

Well I'm turning over a new leaf........(I hope).....I will only stalk you great ladies if I post to my own site first! (yah, right the hubby says)

Of course I know I'm not the only one out there.  Admit it, you know who you are....sitting in front of the computer for hours on end, drink of choice in hand, lesson plans and papers neglected once again in search of just one more AMAZING idea! 

So.......I just want to know HOW do all you AMAZING teacher/bloggers do it?  Please share, I'd love to hear how you manage your time,  because I must need a 12 step program.
