New class!! 2011-2012

Can you believe we just finished the 1st week of the school year? What a FABULOUS group of firsties! There are 16 kids that rock my world each day and I cannot wait until tomorrow to see them again.  We worked on getting to know one another. We practiced some literacy stations and heard some awesome stories.  I think the favorite was Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon. They were captivated by the pictures and we were so happy the bully changed his ways by the end of the story.  We worked with making 4 and 5 and used our ActivExpression each day.  Our scientists were working on learning lab tools and we talked about our families.  It was a great week.  Check out the wordle and see all the fabulous firsties!

Week 9 Thing 23

So I am at the end of my Technology Junkie workshop.  It has been a wonderful journey.  I am so thankful we have the opportunity to learn about exciting Web 2.0 tools, even with my hectic schedule.  The last tool I learned about was Prezi.  WOW I can see this being so much fun for the class.  Prezi allows you to create a presentation but you can size things of importance, create paths, and allow a big or small view of concepts within the presentation.  I explored a little and found a math one dealing with addition and subtraction.  Pretty cool can't wait to use it with my class.  I need to spend some more time exploring and seeing if there are any other ones I can use while teaching my chickens. Thanks you to C. Ginn for all of your knowledge and support these past few weeks.  It sure was fun!

Week 9 Thing 22

So I made my 1st Glogster.  Cute idea adding multimedia and making an electronic poster.  Wonder if the kids will like it? I love being a teacher!
