  • Thing 35: Supporting English Language Learners
    I've been working on this Thing for a while. I had come across some of these articles and strategies in my work on my administrative license, but I still didn't feel like it was enough. Most of the articles address large populations of ENL students, and many assume the first ... read more

  • Thing 12/2018: Final Reflection
    This is my umpteenth year doing Cool Tools and aside from the first year, this year was by far my riskiest year. There was a question about whether I would do it again because I have done it for so many years (each year completing ten things!) and I always ... read more

  • Thing 37: Green Screen
    Like the booksnaps using Bitmoji, this is something you can spend all of your time getting “just right”. Ironically one of Serena Waldron’s comments on her green screen post was lighting and I will echo that sentiment. My backgrounds could have been cleaner had I been in a better (more ... read more

  • Thing 26&35&44/2018: Sketchnoting & ELLs & Book Stuff
    I’m taking advantage of the snow day to sit and listen to several webinars I never got to see that both promote the “book stuff” that I wanted to investigate as well as supporting ELLs specifically because we have three ENL classes coming in with a teacher in another week ... read more

  • Thing 1: Blogging
    Wow, blogging. Love reading other's, but never thought of doing one myself. It's one of those "out of your comfort zone" things. Sharing thoughts with those who don't know you and who you don't know....but that is the reality that our students live and thrive in. It's time to join ... read more

  • Thing 26 Note Taking Tools
    I read this information about a week ago and didn't have the time to post my blog.  I was interested in this topic as every year I do a research report with fourth graders.  It is a common core requirement that fourth graders collect information from a variety of sources.  ... read more

  • Thing 45/2018: Anything goes Google
    Woah, you don’t know what you don’t know until you realize there’s a lot more you don’t know. My brain hurts! But I do know I can check up on Alice Keeler at any point in time and know she’s the go-to lady for all things Google! Like Polly, I ... read more

    I am a big fan of databases.  This week in library for third grade we have been studying Australia and will be moving into books about Egypt.  I read the book, The Sandwich Swap, to the students and we talked about how different countries have different foods.  I then showed ... read more
