Don't you absolutely love it when the day works out just the way you planned in your dreams? They don't come often but when they do, it doesn't matter what the weather is on the outside, on the inside the sun is shinning brightly! Today was such a day. All of my classes have been absolutely amazing today but the three student examples below come from third, fourth and fifth grades respectfully.
Third graders created pixiel people using the icon generator site. These will be used on our blog. We are learning to keep ourselves safe and only post our own work online. We will be creating lots of projects like this and then writing stories about them.
Fourth Graders used a website called the icon creator to create square avatars. Later we will upload these to our blog page.
Fifth Graders used a site called the Graffiti Maker to make their names graffiti style. I think they did a fantastic job! We will use these on our Edmodo page.
_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
