Nightly Reading

I will soon begin to sound like a broken record, but please know how important it is for children to ready EVERY single night. Here are links to some articles if you are curious.

Digital Portfolios

I have been collaborating via Twitter with educators around the world on what works and what others have learned from using Digital Portfolios. This week I finalized what settings I want to have on each students' site. I will be the admin of each portfolio and all comments will go to moderation, meaning I will need to approve them. If you would also like to be an admin on your student's site, please let me know. You will need a Gmail account and then I can add you! Look for the sites launching in the next few weeks!
