New Tech Challenges are up for April!
There are 3 blogs up that students can use in stations. A number crunching blog, a writing blog and an inferring blog.
The 411- National Poetry Month
April is National Poetry Month and next Thursday we are celebrating Poem in Your Pocket Day!
There are a ton of ideas HERE
-create Voki's to share your poem- if you aren't using original poems, make sure to cite your information
-create a Google Presentation and invite each student to add a slide that has their poem and let them illustrate it
-Have students illustrate their poem and then create a paperslide video of them reading it
