I hope everyone had a GREAT summer and a FANTASTIC first week back with students. Last year I lamented the fact that I am not a good blogger but I did enjoy my Five on Friday posts. Here is my first one of the 2017-2018 school year.
2. Speaking of Google, did you know that they have developed their own curriculum now? I haven't yet checked it out but I intend to do so soon! It's called Be Internet Awesome!
3. Recently I was asked if I would share a resource I created. This is a glyph you can do in draw using Lego characters. I am a huge fan of the Lego avatar site but lately it has been acting "glitchy" so I decided to do something myself. Hope you enjoy this resource.

4. Recently I stumbled across this cool tip for docking two opened windows on a Chromebook. It was shared with me by a friend, Wanda Terral, on her Facebook page. I am posting the tip and linking it to her blog which has a number of other tips and tricks.
5. And now for my first Friday at the Movies for this year! - It's not really a movie but more of a sing-a-long. I may use this as my "theme song" for the year!
_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.
