This is my final blog of the 2019 year and it's not a Five on Friday blog. This is something that I have been working on for a few days now. This is my gift to you all. I have been working on a school planner. Please change my name to your own and I hope you enjoy it. If you want to change any of the images to pictures of your own and need help, just ask. I would be happy to drop by and show you how to personalize this to make this your own. To get your copy of this digital planner, just click the image below. The document was created in Google Sheets. If you wish to print it out and put it into a physical notebook make sure you print in portrait view and not landscape view. You will need to be signed into your Amherst County G-Suite in order to access this document.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
1. I am so excited!!! Christmas is on the way and of all the holidays, Christmas is my favorite. I am even more excited to be asked for this breakout I created based on the Twelve Days of Christmas. I hope you enjoy doing this with your students.
3. How do you get your students to really think about the answers they are submitting on a quiz? Engage them by combining the quiz with a pixel art task. Check out my quiz and see if you can answer all the questions. If you do, you will see a magic picture show. This is not my original idea and I left the copyright at the bottom. If you would like to create one for your class and need help, please ask!! Click the image to get to the quiz.
4. For younger students, have them decorate a Christmas tree and then they can write about the tree as a writing activity. Again, this is not mine and copyright has been attached. Click the image of the tree for the document.
5. Friday at the Movies - Y'all know how much I love the Floppotron! I couldn't resist.
Hi, my name is Melanie Lewis. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Amherst County Public Schools, located in the beautiful state of Virginia. I LOVE my job! I get to work on my hobby, anything that has to do with computers. I get to work with teachers and students, and I am definitely a people person. Plus, I DO NOT have to give grades. Wonderful, huh? Let me know how I can help you better integrate technology into your classroom.
