December Time Off

December is coming. It is always busy and a bit stressful. Want a chance to get a little break?
I will be having a raffle at the end of November to cover your class for an hour while you take an extra break. All you need to do is share a way you have used something on this blog this year with your students. Click on the comment and share your idea.
I will put your name in the hat. After Thanksgiving I will draw 3 names. I will teach your class in December for an hour while you have a break. Fun for me and fun for you. Can’t wait to hear your ideas!

  1. Where do I begin? My students have loved Lookybook. They know they can’t always read the words since on some they are so small, so it’s a great way for them to retell the story we read in class to their parents at home. My Star of Week looks forward to recording on Gabcast for our web site. They decide what to say about character and then practice saying it with expression! Thanks for all you do Lori to help us get kids excited about learning!

  2. My students really enjoyed using you tube in class. We are planning to use Lookybook next week. It looks like a lot of fun!!! Mrs. Semmelbeck and I are planning to create a third grade blog for Espy. We are hoping this can be used instead of sending home a weekly newsletter. We will print off the blog for those students who do not have internet access at home! Thank you for all your fabulous ideas! I am excited about using more technology in the classroom!

  3. I’m with Paula, Lookybook will be wonderful. I am a little behind because my smart board still isn’t up and running. (I just got my projector half installed on Tuesday. No word on finish date.) But, I have been looking ahead and using it to make future plans. One thing I am able to use right now is the previous post about sites for research. I have been needing somewhere to send my students besides Google. We are working on a continents research project and presentation. Now, instead of just library books, we’ll be able to use the computer lab effectively at Tackle Time.

  4. Lori,
    I have been checking in on your bog to challenge myself inthe area of technology… I am anything, but a native! The main thing I (we-my third grade team) is doing is settng up a blog for the entire third grade here at Espy. We are wanting to replace our weekly newsletters with the blog.We are currently gathering e-mail addresses to invite parents to join our blog, since we want to keep it private.

#personlizedlearning starts with voice and choice. A PBL is a great start. To get started, consider @drlorielliott book #pblanywhere that lays out how to go from standards to a PBL.

Excited to share my new PBL online course with you! Thanks @dbc_inc for this opportunity!

Our community unit came to life! We brainstormed wants & needs, planned, & created a community we would like to live in. This year we decided to take our plans to City Hall to share with the people in charge! @isd544otters @teacher2teacher @drlorielliott @DitchThatTxtbk

A short and sweet sesh on #PBL by @drlorielliott hosted by @dbc_inc with @burgessdave and @TaraMartinEDU It's validating to hear that so many others are taking #PBL and #inquiry and running with it!
