My goal today was to make myself available in case someone wanted help with some of the new tools that have recently been showcased. It has been a slow morning with only a couple of "customers". Since my lesson plans are all up to date, I have used the time to comb through Twitter looking for new resources and ideas. Boy! Did I find one that I like! It is a lesson plan from Edgalaxy on Christmas Customs.

I am not sure yet if I will set this up through Edmodo or have students blog but either way, it sho Click here to download the complete lesson plan
_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.
