We are so excited to welcome National Teacher of the Year and multiple award winning author, Sharon Draper to F.AVE in February!
See below to see some reasons why you should read a few of her middle grades novels!
These weeks since the holiday break, we have been getting all of our students signed up for their Google EDU accounts. They have access now to Drive and Docs on their iPads.
Students are going to use Google Drive as a portfolio/archive of their Unit of Inquiry (UOI) work. Their folders will follow them to their next teacher, if they are 4th grade students. They learned how to create a folder and share it with their teachers!
After students learned how to create folders and use Google Drive, we began using Google Classroom a bit. Students joined a media center class!
After students joined my class, we did our first Google Classroom assignment. Because our UOI is How We Express Ourselves, I wanted to learn more about how our 4th and 5th graders are using technology outside of school. What devices do they have? What games are they playing? Are they using social media or not? Stay tuned for my next blog to see how COD intermediate students are using technology to express themselves!
