iDavid and Sandy Perloff came to visit last Wednesday. They watched what was going on in Mrs, Morrison's classroom. Here is a link to a slideshow . We can use Bee-Bots with any grade and any topic. Let me know if you want to plan something.

Digital Citizenship

I would still love to do Digital Citizenship lessons with your students. Doing website evaluation for Big 6 could count as a digital citizenship lessons. I can also do lessons from Common Sense Media and the Digital Citizenship Survival Kit.

February will be Use of Information month. The focus will be on learning good note taking strategies and avoiding plagiarism. The sooner we can get you on the schedule the better - things fill up fast and February is a short month.
