Week of August 6th
"Sharing Christ Through Academic Excellence"
18-19 Theme Verse: "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" Psalm 46:1
I have configured, and in some cases, reconfigured the chromebooks by grades using it. K-3rd will have much more limited access to apps etc than Flatrock will have. There is also a book I got called "The Chromebook Classroom" that may be helpful, particularly section 3 where there are some sample lessons.
There is also a Facebook page to follow as well that may be helpful. Here it is: The Chromebook Classroom. A wesbite with lesson ideas by grade level is also coming in the next week or so. Link is here: The Chromebook Classroom.
Kim and Sharon, I should be able to do yours since the copier was sent up such that I should be able to do it.
Some other things: There may likely need to be some kind of adapter to plug to projector. None has that kind of plug anymore so will have to look for one. Also, this model was one of very few that still had a CD drive in it. Those with SMART boards, I think you should be able to connect OK. I know Mary and Katherine have been able to.
Little Free Libraries Coming to SJE
Amy in the office is now full time in the office. Her hours will be 7:15am to 2:45pm. We have spent the summer getting organized and shuffling what should not be mine to her instead. Many times she will be your go to person fora lot of stuff. I'm excited to have her. With her taking on more, I should be more available for you.
What I've Read Recently
Lead with Literacy
My copy is available to read or you can get your own copy. Either way, I think this is a must read for everyone so we can create a literacy-rich environment at SJE.
The 4 O 'Clock Faculty
There are some awesome ideas for doing PD. I listed one above that I thought was good that I would be willing to do throughout the year.
My copy of this book is available or you can get your own copy. Either way, it's a great read with a ton of good ideas.
