I have posted a great deal in one day but today has been a great day with the focus where it should be: on instruction. The students have been engaged and have worked hard! The third graders have been working on this map lesson for the past two lab sessons. I have enjoyed watching them problem solve. Each student was given a Smart notebook template with directions for putting characters and other items on it. The last page of the notebook asked for a story. The pictures posted here are as students are in the process of working. I will post a few stories later.
I am also posting my notebook template in case someone else wants to use it.
_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.

I know only one thing about the technology that awaits us in the future: We will find ways to tell stories with it. ~Jason Ohler
