January Shout Outs!

A big shout out goes to Ms. Scott for allowing me to come and teach her Parenting and Early Childhood Development classes all about children's literature! Students learned what makes a great children's book. We had so much fun discussing our favorite books!

If you would like me to come and teach your class a lesson, feel free to ask! Ideas include (but are not limited to) research methods, creating a works cited, website evaluation, and, presentation methods.

Thank you to the following teachers who came to visit us during this busy month: Mr. DiMauro, Mrs. Cordero, Ms. Mikan, Mr. Mishriky, Mr. Turgeon, Mr. LaPorte, Mrs. Midford, and Mr. Jankowski. We look forward to seeing more of you in February!

Technology Spotlight

Have you ever found an article or picture online, but when you hit print the entire page or pages print? Such a waste of paper! I have the solution- Print Friendly! Print Friendly makes any webpage print friendly. Simply cut and paste the page you want into the "print preview" bar. From there you can choose whether or not you want the images and delete the sections you don't want printed. You can save your end result as a PDF or print it immediately. Check it out!
