Question for Monday 9-14-09

I'd like you to tell me about your favorite thing to eat for breakfast. If you could eat anything, absolutely anything at all, what would you have for breakfast?

Using Blogging With My Students

I don't think I realized how difficult it would be to show my kids how to blog, and have them blog in my classroom. Every blogging site that I looked at requires students to have their own email address. This is a HUGE problem when my county does not give my kids their own email to use.

I think I found a way to get around this, but I'm not sure. I wanted to use this blog for my kids to comment on various topics, and to get their opinions out there and to share their thoughts/feelings, but we'll see. It could end up being just my blog about teaching.

Wish us luck as we try this out tomorrow!!

It's Been A While!

It's been quite some time since I last posted, so I thought I'd take a minute and write something today.
We're in the third quarter now and that means that the school year is already more than half over. It's amazing to think that we've been together for more than 100 school days! We've been working on story elements and have learned about plot, conflict, and Pourquoi Tales. The class has been writing their own Pourquoi Tales (Pourquoi means "Why" in French) and then they're going to be putting them into Movie Maker. It should go quickly now that they've had some practice with MM.
We're almost ready to track out. A week from Tuesday is our track out day and I can't wait! When we return in February we'll only have 15 weeks of school left.
Well, that's all I can think of to post for now. Check back again soon and see if I thought of anything else!!
