1. Website of the Week-
Gail sent this site out on Monday of this week. Many of you may already be using this site but I thought it would be a nice reminder. Epic! - Books for Kids is FREE!! Check it out! Here is the link.
2. STEAM idea of the Week- Pumpkin Geo Board
I saw this online last year and have bookmarked it to do with my grandsons one Sat. I thought I would share with you.
3. Google Resource of the Week-Halloween Pixel Art
Kids love coloring! Here is an new twist on an old task. Color by number with Google Sheets. In this task, students practice adding and subtracting to color a vampire. To get your own copy, click on the image and then click: Make A Copy. Please let me know if you would like to make a Pixel Art to match your skills.
4. Another wonderful Google Resource!
Kasey Bell has a great template for Halloween Themed Magnetic Poetry on her website. This looks really cool!
5. Friday at the Movies - Spookly is the sweetest story. It's all about a little pumpkin who was bullied for being different until the day that his difference was just what was needed.
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.
