I want to make sure my students have the materials they need to succeed, so I just created a request for my classroom at DonorsChoose.org:
Storm their Minds with LEGO Robotics!
Give to my classroom by December 28, 2014 and your donation will be doubled thanks to Disney. Just enter the code DISNEY on the payment page and you’ll be matched dollar for dollar (up to $150).
If you chip in to help my students, you’ll get awesome photos and our heartfelt thanks.
Thanks so much,
P.S. If you know anyone who may want to help my classroom, please pass this along!
I see bullying as a cancer in our schools. It eats away at the very soul of all our students – the bully, bystanders and their victims. Please check out the film, training materials and lesson plans at the link shared below.
I love Halloween. I never dress up for it. I thought, perhaps, I would this year. I found a link with several ideas for teacher costumes. Let me know if you use one of the suggestions!
Ideas from Buzz Feed
Every once in awhile I come across some cool stuff on Facebook for educators. I came across a website recommended by Free Technology for Teachers called ClassTools.Net. What caught my eye is a program called Fakebook. With Fakebook, students are able to personalize a “facebook” template and save it. The students are able to create a “fake” facebook page that demonstrates what acceptable use of social media should look like. Once they have created their fakebook, have them submit it as an artifact. As always, provide them with a rubric and an example.
I am always on the lookout for tools to help me teach appropriate behaviors online aka digital citizenship. Here are the links for the Classtools website and their Fakebook template.
