I can't believe it but this will be my last Five on Friday blog of 2017! Where has this year gone?
1. Last week I posted a Digital Breakout on the 12 Days of Christmas. This week I stumbled upon this slide show that turns the song into a math assignment asking the students to make a budget. Really cool! To get your copy, click on the image at the left and then File->Make a Copy
2. I had a couple of people thank me for the Crack the Thanksgiving Code. Here is a Christmas version. Hope you enjoy!
3. I was asked to create a document that students could work on independently that would allow them to research winter holidays. I decided to share what I have with everyone. To get a copy of this document, click the image and then go to File -> Make a Copy.
4. Here is a Google tip I picked up at VSTE. Many of you have asked me how to make an email group contact. To do so, click on COMPOSE as if you are preparing to write an email. When the draft copy opens, click on the word, TO. Make sure you click on the word itself. A wizard will open and from there you can select your contact for that group, name the list, and save.
5. Friday at the Movies - The Car Duty Grinch
I had a great time doing a Breakout session on Jamestown for the 4th graders at each of my schools. Please contact me if you would like to schedule one for your class!
_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.
