I think that I had the right idea when I didn't want to get out of bed this morning! Technology was not my friend today. What went wrong today: 1. My Voki account said that it was expired, so my Fifth Graders couldn't work on their projects. 2. The Ipod touch would not stay connected to the wireless connection 3. I had computers that just lost their network printers, they were no longer connected.
My one bright spot was my Third Grade class. I taught six kids how to Blabberize their landform. Then I brought the next nine kids in and the first six kids became the teachers. I just got to sit back and facilitate, but stepping in if needed. These kids really stepped up to the plate today and surprised me. I'm going to try and hold onto that good feeling as I try to get through tomorrow.
I ordered a new book from Upstart Publications in the mail on Saturday. It is called The Centered School Library. I'm excited to read it over Thanksgiving break. It's all about creating "centers" in the library. I'll post about it after I finish reading it.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all.
