It's a Wrap

Weebly is KeWL

Fifth grade students are creating Weebly student websites. They will be sharing what they Know, what questions they Want to learn the answers to, and what they Learn on a topic of their choosing. Including links to their research and appropriate images will give them a good first experience creating an informative website.

Teaching is Learning

Sixth grade students have finished their library lessons on Internet Safety and are now working in groups to create videos (Stupeflix or WeVideo), or presentations (Prezi) to be used as teaching tools with next year's classes.

Origami Makerspace

This is the last of the Makerspaces created for students to use during book checkout in the library. The creation of origami animals was very popular. The space included books, paper supplies and instructions.

It is with mixed feelings that I announce a change for next school year. Sadly, I will be leaving the Norwood community where I have worked for the past 15 years. Next year, I am excited to begin a new chapter of my learning at Wyman Elementary school. I plan on remaining a resource for the Norwood community and faculty. Do not hesitate to contact me.
