Assessment Time Again...E.S.G.I.=E.A.S.Y.

Well, it's that time again...assessment time!! I know how time consuming and dreadful assessing 27 kindergarteners can be. Did I say time consuming??

Well, not anymore!!! I'm so serious!! I decided to give ESGI a try this year and MAN, am I glad I did!!! It is sooooo quick and easy!!! I cannot even tell you the amount of time I have saved this year already!!


Don't be scared!!!! This software is soooooo easy to use!!! I promise!!! Invest a couple of minutes in it and see how EASY it is to use!!! ESGI offers a FREE 60 day trial! I ENCOURAGE to go, RUN, NOW!!! Go check it out!!! Try it out!!! It will change your life FOREVER!!!! NO more painful, tedious testing!!!!

Look how fast and easy it is to use!!!! AND, I'm doing it ONE handed in this video!!! Ha!!!! (that's how easy it is :)



You may be able to tell in this video, ESGI keeps track of what the kiddos already know. Each time you test them, it saves their results and it only tests them on the things that they don't know yet!!! But, what if you want to go back and test on everything??? No problem!!! You can do that too with just the click of a button!!

And, once you have tested them, just click on the parent letter button and print out a letter to their parents stating what they know and what they still need to work on like this:


It will even print out custom flash cards to go with it!!!

Worried that the software won't match up with your needs!! No worries! You can easily customize your tests. They have LOTS of test to choose from and you can even easily create your own!! They have thought of everything!!!

Another great part is, you can access your info on any computer, laptop, smart phone or tablet!!!! No more dragging all of those files home with you!!!!!

I'm telling you!!! ESGI WILL change your life!! Christmas Break is the PERFECT opportunity to go check it out and set up your free 60 day trial. Click HERE to learn more!!! And USE THE SPECIAL LITTLE WARRIORS PROMO CODE B7124 TO GET $40 OFF!!!!

Week of Thanks: H is for Hoppers


Today we are on letter H and I'm so, so thankful for my fellow Hoppers!!!

I am one BLESSED girl!!! I feel so, so lucky that one random night in February of 2011 I stumbled across the first teaching blog. It lead me to others. I immediately became hooked...like seriously-HOOKED. I started my own blog a few days later. Little did I know where that little, random blog would take me. I have made so many amazing friends!!! These friends are people I only get to see once or twice a year if I'm lucky. Some I am still waiting to meet "in real life". But, ALL of these girls are so generous, helpful and kind. Those personalities that you read through their blogs....those are real!!! These girls ARE the real deal. And, such knowledgeable professionals!!! I am a hundred times the teacher that I used to be because of them. Any time I have a question...they answer it. If I need help with something, they never hesitate to offer advice or a helping hand. I just love these girls so, so much!!! I am beyond thankful to be a part of this amazing group and of the blogging community!!

Did I mention how much FUN they are?!?!  :)
