As I get older, time passes faster and faster! I cannot believe we are entering the last week in July. Before we know it, another school year will be upon us.
Two years ago I wrote a grant, along with my teammates, to secure a chromebook for every student in 5th grade. When students come to us from 4th grade they are so excited to have their own chromebook and can’t wait to get busy using the technology. Because they are so excited, I try to find ways they can use the technology while I get a chance to get to know them.
Here are a few ideas I have come up with for this coming school year… (I have also included Ipad alternatives for those of you who have Ipads as resources)
4. Another idea I had for locker name plates, was to use Word Clouds that students create about themselves using ABCYA Word Clouds for Kids. This site is so easy to use and can be done by any grade level! Students can change font, colors, size etc. You can save and print. I would have students put words or phrases that represent who they are. You could even print up questions or display questions on the board to have students answer using the word cloud.
