Be creative! I am so excited for the summer as I get to take some classes, but the Leap Motion device is also goung to be in stores. I can't wait to use it instead of always touching the screen. How would you use it? If you don't know what it is, check it out online.
Howdy and I'm glad you are here! I haven't updated my page in a while, but will be adding/changing soon.
Zondle is a great place to have the students go and practice whatever using educational content you provide. There are apps for iOS and Android. Very cool. https://www.zondle.com/publicPages/welcome.aspx
Festisite is an amazing place to go to create a fantastic Rebus. Check it out as they are very easy to make! http://www.festisite.com/text-layout/
Just to say some words about tablets. It used to be that iPads were the only tablets that were any good. Honestly, this has changed. I have been using the Samsung Note 10.1 and I love it. I love the stylus and I love the front-facing speakers. The app store is a little better for iPads, but I really do prefer the Note 10.1 over the iPad right now. However, they are both amazing and so fun to use.
If you don't have homework, or you just want some more practice, try some grammar games. Here are some I found. Do a Google search and share your favorite games with your friends on Edmodo.
There are lots of resources and cool websites here. Please take advantage of scootpad and practice your skills.
have a great day!!
I am very happy to be working with the 5th grade team. We will be doing lots of reading, grammar, and spelling - but we will be doing it in many different forms. We will be blogging with other schools, we will be using Edmodo to comment/ask questions, and we will be working with wikis and webpages to publish some of our work.
Check out my webpage as there are lots of resources - there will be more.
It's gonna be a great year!
