First grade students created pictures to show seasonal change using Tux Paint. while second grade students used the program to create Halloween pictures. Tux Paint is one of my favorite programs to use. The only downside is that to get to the saved images of the students, it is a little bit of a hassle. Tux Paint does not give you the prerogative of saving to your desired destination. To overcome this, I use the snipping tool from Windows 7 to save the image to the school server.
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.
