* Blogging in our jammies! To celebrate spring (although it doesn't feel like spring) our school had pj day. Today was a blogging day for my second graders. As part of an enrichment time for some of my students, the students blogged about an assignment.
We are using Kidblog. It is very safe and easy to use. My students were up and running with their posts in no time. It was so cool to here their excitement and enthusiasm about our new project. I love when they go home and tell/show parents what we are doing in our classroom. One parent commented (with a big smile), "You've created a monster!" She then went on to tell how her daughter just had to blog and everything needed to be just right.
* Poke cards - my students love these! I created this new set for the book Owl at Home. I love the immediate feedback the students get when they use these cards.
* A visit from Grandma Sue - Grandma Sue wanted to spend the day in her granddaughters classroom. Grandma Sue just sit and watch, she did! She read our story from reading textbook, she helped with our Tasty Tuesday recipe, Leprechaun Pie and most of all she gave me lots of compliments!
* Working together - In an effort to make less copies for my students, I've had pairs work together. Here two students work together to figure out synonyms. So far the students are doing great. To ensure accountability I have the partners hold up their completed work while someone takes a picture on the iPad. I am able to check their work and delete the pictures if I choose.
Have a great week!
