Filling the Frame with Learning

New Technology

I'll start using some new technology with the students this week. I wanted to share this with you so you can see what we will be doing at school. I'll be posting these on Edmodo so the kids can access them from home to review and study. This is really helpful if they forget their notebook at school.


We have already been using Padlet and we will be learning about some other new technology tools soon. I try to post all newsletters and digital notes on Edmodo. If ever in doubt, check there first.

Digital Newsletter

Last week I won a new Sony HD video camera. After we came back from the field trip Friday I recruited a few students to create our first video newsletter. They created the script and recorded the announcements for the week. This is something I've been wanting to do for a while and just didn't have the equipment to do it. Check out our first video newsletter below!
Newsletter 3/3/14

Our classroom is a mistake-making, laughter-sharing, independence-building, brain-stretching sort of place. Everyone matters!

Be the kind of leader that you would follow!

Habit 6 — Synergize

Together is better!


I value other people’s strengths and learn from them. I get along well with others, even people who are different than me. I work well in groups. I seek out other people’s ideas to solve problems because I know that by teaming with others we can create better solutions than anyone of us can alone. I am humble.
