Today in the STEAM lab has been so much fun! My room smelles soooo good! We had Christmas music playing. The "fireplace" has a roaring fire. I used the YouTube video linked below. Christmas play mats are on the table. I found some cute freebies on Teachers Pay Teachers. You can click on the link to see what I used. I printed these out and put them under some old overhead transparencies that were put out at the beginning of the school year for the trash. STEAM teachers never throw anything away. Finally, we "programmed" playdough using the special code that makes the room smell like Christmas magic. Of course, my magical ingredient was peppermint flavoring! My code for the play dough is below.
Here are some pictures from our day. Our elves are having a blast!
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
