PARTS OF SPEECH unit of study. This is what it entails:
- each student adds 10-15 words about one topic (eg nouns, adjectives, adverbs, verbs...)
- on their sheet, kids must have descriptive words and synonyms
- after double checking spelling and neatness, kids showed me their sheets
- if everything looks good, next step
Tomorrow, kids will type their list into ABCya's Word Cloud program (free and easy form of WORDLE). I will download their Word Clouds onto my flashdrive and make a PARTS OF SPEECH slideshow in Smilebox.
I will post the slideshow when it is finished.
So, so, so, excited!!!
I borrowed this idea from "Techie Teacher"'s blog; what a wonderfully fun idea.

Students love, love, love this program. There are many free cartoon-making websites and I encourage everyone to try one out...the kiddos will be glad you did.
|Cool site for reflecting on learning|
Okay, so I have to admit that this one is very new to me. I created an account and am going to ask my kids to reflect on Bitstrips using VoiceThread. We will either use our avatars from Bitstrips or make new ones in KidPix. All that is required is a lot of patience (lol); especially this week as it is the end of the school year.
In order to have a good idea how this works, I added a couple of "identities" and did the voices myself. It is actually very easy once you try it out and get the hang of it. I highly recommend, although the setup (which is the biggest part) takes a little while.
I will add each kid in my class as one of my "identities" and will then let them either type or record their feelings about Bitstrips...we'll see how it goes.

VoiceThread as Reflection Tool
|The ZOOMING PRESENTATION program|
grade 2/3. It is a fancy way to showcase a project, and kids pick it up really fast.
Like most of the technology I incorporate, it is a free program that offers basic features. In order to get the advanced options, a membership must be bought.

|Glogster Learning Goals|
I highly recommend GLOGSTER as a tool for grades 1-12...there is so much that you can do with this program. The basic package is free, however, if you want to upgrade there is a fee.

Well, this is my very first post on my very own blog. I am hoping to use my blog as a timeline...and also to post ideas and/or information that I found interesting or useful.
