Well hello there...
My little ole blog got a makeover, so I thought I would try & revive it. Those of you who stuck with me are AMAZING followers. So thank you!!
I went to a really awesome technology training at Region 20 and thought I would share a little technology tip I learned. Have you heard of Padlet? It is a website where you can pose a question, give students the link, and they respond. It seems great for all ages, but I could definitely see using it with first graders. I plan on pulling it up on the screen and having them type the answer to a question so all the students can see what their classmates are saying. Here is a link to my sample padlet.
You could use it to activate prior knowledge, have students respond to a book, have them make predictions, have them write their definition of a vocabulary word... etc. The possibilities are endless! What would you use it for in your classroom?
Adios for now,
