My class has spent quite a bit of time on the computers the first month. We can all log in to Google Docs and Discovery Education fairly quickly and efficiently. In addition, we have bookmarked the Inspired Writing Page, Field Website, and Class Website. We have explored these sites to see what is available to us. We have also opened and made copies of two different plans- the story worm and a bubble map. We used our story worm to summarize the shared reading story we had just finished. We used the bubble map to brainstorm Summer ideas for writing topics. I think this time we’ve spent on nuts and bolts will help us greatly when we actually try to use these tools to advance our learning.
