2. More and more of you are entering into the world of Google Apps with your students. This is wonderful! I plan on sharing resources each Friday that you can use with your students. This week I have a subtraction Hyperdoc. A hyperdoc is a packaged lesson that has links to resources outside the doc. This one is done in Google Slides. It is linked to two YouTube videos which will explain the concept of subtraction. This hyperdoc is geared for 2nd to 3rd grades. I can make one for your grade as well or I can sit with you as you create your own hyperdoc. Click on the image to access this hyperdoc.
3. Memes are a great way to have students concisely explain a concept. Here is a Google Drawing Template, along with directions for use that you can provide students with as a means to explain a vocab word, a math problem, or a concept from science or history. Enjoy! This simple template came from Alice Keeler.
4. I just recently stumbled across Pixton. Pixton is a great site that allows students to create comics. Joining as an educator allows you to create a comic assignment for students!
5. Friday at the Movies - Just something to make you smile.
PS: Funny little vids like this are great story starters!
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.

I know only one thing about the technology that awaits us in the future: We will find ways to tell stories with it. ~Jason Ohler
