|2014-2015 3rd Grade Year!||
Thank you to everyone who came to our Poetry Slam! We had a packed class and it was so much fun! I am proud of all my students for being Brave and applying our practiced presentation skills and sharing our personal poetry! (Can you tell that I am still very much in my poetry alliteration mindset?) A special thank you to both Heidi and Shannon who put extra effort and time into making this Poetry Slam absolutely amazing! If you have photos or videos, send them my way as I would love to share more on the classroom blog!
Clarifying Weebly and Kidblog:
Last week we had a wonderful discussion around how we are going to use Kidblog vs. Weebly. In case you are wondering the difference within our classrooms, here is what we decided. One of the students put it succinctly: "Weebly is our ePortfolio while Kidblog is our Electronic Newspaper!" I believe that captures the essence of each in a quick statement!
Homework with Kidblog! As I continue to post more and more on our Kidblog site, I hope that the class will be able to find some home time to further explore old posts or check out new posts and practice commenting and contributing to the Kidblog discussion. 2-3 times a week for about 15-30 would allow them to stay updated and connected with the new games, articles and fun websites I find related to our classroom topics.
