Welcome to Appletastic Learning

appletastic learning with shelly rees

Welcome to Appletastic Learning!  As I begin my venture into the world of blogging, I have two hopes:

1.  I hope to share a glimpse into my classroom, teaching style, and what fifth grade is all about.  I will share ideas, resources, and teaching strategies with you often, so make sure to check in.

2.  I hope to meet new friends, mainly other educators, so I can learn from you.  I love to find new ideas to try in my classroom, especially ones that are both meaningful and fun!

I believe in making learning engaging and fun.  This doesn’t mean sacrificing skills, concepts or rigor.  Quite the opposite.  By using engaging activities in the classroom students learn more, become invested in their learning, and generally begin thinking at higher levels.  Skills based activities that do this are what I love creating and using.

When you find something you like, give it a try. I’ve had my share of classroom failures but they always make my a better teacher and in the end my lessons get better too.  So don’t be afraid to try something new.

So welcome!  I am excited to begin this journey.

You can also find Appletastic Learning and Shelly’s resources on Teachers Pay Teachers.

I'm Shelly Rees of Appletastic Learning. First and foremost, I'm a mom of 4 boys, wife of 25 years to Aric, and Wyoming girl at heart. I love being creative, making resources for teachers, baking cookies, Diet Coke, teaching, public speaking, and spreading kindness wherever I can. After teaching in the upper elementary grades for over 23 years, I retired early and focused on creating and helping teachers around the world with my teaching ideas and resources. I also serve as a mentor to hundreds of teacherpreneurs and help them get focused on growing their own successful businesses. With 100% honesty, I LOVE my life! Thanks for visiting! I hope you'll stay awhile and come back often. Read More
