2nd and 3rd Quarter Review: April 2015
What's been going on?
Other collaborations in 2nd and 3rd quarter included a QR code Jan Brett author study activity with Garrison's class, working with 3rd grade on a biography/Discovery Education Board Builder project, helping 2nd grade with their fairy tale comparison unit, and reinforcing how to do a character analysis with 4th grade students.
I know the year is wrapping up and things are quite busy, but if there is anything you'd like to work together on, please let me know!
Some of you have taken me up on scheduling a 30 minute Big Universe orientation lesson for your classes. Even if you don't know how much you may use it with in your classroom (although there are some cool functions like a fiction/non fiction comparison tool), it's a good idea to show your students because they can use it at home to create their own personalized digital libraries! Let me know if you would like one!
They can use it over the summer!!!!
