Week 3 Thing 7 picture edit tool

I find it hard to believe that school will start back in 4 weeks.  Where did the time go? Tim and I took the kids to North Carolina for a week.  We enjoyed hiking, zip lining, tubing, and even white water rafting.  Tim was our guide down the Nantahala River and the kids enjoyed every minute of it.  We had the best time ever and can't wait to go back.  I used a picture we bought and the web tool Picnik to edit the photo below.  It was so easy to do and I am sure I will be using it again.

Week 3 Thing 6 Cartoon, really?

I learned about a new web 2.0 tool where you can create a comic.  I made a "me" and created my first comic.  It was actually quite easy. I can see the kids doing this, of course after a lot of modeling.  Who knows they might catch on to it quicker than me.  I am so excited for the upcoming year.  Make sure to check it out.

Mother's Day-Week 3 Thing 5

So I am practicing some new Web 2.0 tools for that online course.  I kind of lost track those last few weeks of school.  I really need to play catch up so make sure to check back soon for the rest of the year with my firstie friends.  We painted some FABULOUS Van Gogh inspired paintings in art, framed them, and presented them to our moms for Mother's Day.  Make sure to check out this Mixbook.
