Kindergarten Calendar and Technology 

Our kindergarten students are becomming fluent on the Smartboard.  They observe the calendar routine for 2 months before teaching it to the class themselves.  The entire routine is on the Smartboard and a fascinating project to see!  I'd love to show you how the students are able to learn and teach math concepts (days and months, skip counting, even/odd, base ten, graphing) through the daily calendar routine.  They learn and teach weather concepts, access the internet, and link to songs and books embedded in the Notebook file.  The presentation will include video clips of the students learning and teaching the calendar routine and the Notebook file to interact with.

''We the Change''---Bully Project at Marvin Ridge Middle School 

Seventh grade students tackled the tough subject and problem of bullying in our school.  This unit was divided into three components:    1)  WEBSITE:  Students researched the subject of bullying and created a bully website on Google Sites.     2)  BULLY POLICY:  Once the students educated themselves on the subject of bullying, they created a comprehensive bully policy for our school.      3)  BOOK CLUB:  Students selected a book to read in November that had a bully theme.  They read, reflected on their stories, and discussed various topics in regards to their bully book.

ACES Make History- Session Cancelled

Students collaborate in pairs to be digital historians.  Each group has an artifact and they complete a project modeled after the PBS History Detectives.  My class is part of a 1:1 pilot and we have transformed this project to be digitally based using Google Drive.  Artifacts range from CW photographs, a western spittoon, and a Belgium Liberation bracelet to name a few. Students have a five-part project anchored by technology that includes planning/investigation, collecting evidence, evaluating sources, and analyzing/drawing conclusions. Their final product is an informative technology based showcase of their research and conclusions in a medium such as glogester, museum box, prezi etc..
