1. We're going to start a facebook page. But only for our parents. Since I teach 6th grade I have a little bit of hesitation about getting 11 year olds on facebook when the minimum age is suppose to be 13. No worries. This did not come without some resistance from staff members. Funny. Our administration is 100% for it, our teachers are not. But that's for another blog post.
Check it out here:
2. I'm going to use a paper pencil True False assessment to teach kids about me. Then we're going to flip that and they are going to teach me about them.
3. I'm also using wallwisher to have students collaborate online by brainstorming ideas to name their class (see every year my students name their class, this gives a sort of team mentality that helps make the year run smooth.).
Excited to try something new!
Welcome to 2010!
