In one of my schools I am working with a group of fifth graders on writing skills. Last week we researched someone we admired and composed a paragraph on Smart Notebook software. I had the students put each sentence into its own text box so that we could manipulate them. I wanted them to see how to structure their paragraphs so that the writing would read more fluently. After we finished with our paragraphs, we took screen shots. Below are our biographies.
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.
