Five for Friday! {March 4, 2016}

Hey guys! Happy Friday!

I had a very busy week so I'm excited to be linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!



My week started on Saturday when I presented at West Baton Rouge Parish Schools Mini LaCUE conference. I presented on creating HyperDocs using Google Docs. You can check out the presentation and work through a first grade HyperDoc {HERE}

The best part? I got to hang out and catch up with my friend over at Pelicans and Pipsqueaks, Kristi! 
She rocked her presentation on QR Codes!



I also got to play a game of Breakout Edu which was a lot of fun! A room full of adults trying to unlock 5 different locks whilst rummaging through a librarians stash of seemingly unsuspecting loot. 
We eventually solved it (after 44 minutes!) and discovered the culprit behind the missing eBooks on MackinVia. I can see its uses in a middle school or high school classroom in regards to technology. I was trying to think how my 26 first graders would do when told to go look through a pile of stuff for clues. I will definitely have to read up more on this activity!


I got another project posted on Donors Choose! I'm asking for 10 tablets to complete my collection in the classroom. If I get this one funded, I will have 1:1 in my room! I'm so excited about the possibilities! 



It was Read Across America Week! I made shirts for my first grade team. 
Don't we look great? 
You can read about how I made them and grab a template {HERE}



The kids loved making all things Seuss this week. My favorite? 
Jennifer's Directed Drawing of the famous cat from First Grade Blue Skies. 

They are just fabulous little budding artists!


And that's all for this week! Have a great weekend!
