This afternoon during IHOP (I’m Hooked On Playing) time, teachers will learn how to create and embed videos using the iPad App Chatterpix. Here is an example that we made just this morning using my iPhone as we parked. Think of the possibilities to use it in your content area. Bring your iPhone, iPod, or iPad. If you don’t have one, come anyway. We’ll share! We’ll see you there!
We are enjoying this cool weather, and as fall has just begun, wouldn’t this be a great project? I challenge you to do a time lapse video and post it to your own blog,
We are noticing changes outside our windows. The season is changing and soon the trees will lose their leaves. Please enjoy reading about why this happens each year at this time on the page created by using a creative site called Bounce. If you like it, try creating your own page. It’s so easy to do.

“Practice antonyms, synonyms, and homonyms with the word eating frog. Simply click to match the correct answer. Practice your speed and accuracy. Your final score will be shared at the end. This site is ideal for beginner readers, but you must be able to read basic sight words. Students learning what antonyms, synonyms, and homonyms mean will also find valuable practice at this site.”
Welcome back, students! Thank you, parents, for getting our students ready to learn.
Summer is coming to a close and children are really getting bored by now. The recent rainy weather has not helped to relieve that feeling. The next time you hear, “There’s nothing to do around here!”, I’d like to challenge you to build with Chrome. Lego has partnered with Chrome to give children the opportunity to build online – train to become a master builder – if you will. The site starts them off with basic skill challenges and progressively moves through more difficult tasks. There are two options: (1) Build Academy Challenges and (2) Start Building for real beginners.
Before the building begins, you may want to Explore the Builds of others. They are marked on a world map with an icon that indicates what kind of build the student has created. When I zoomed into White Oak, I did not see one single icon. I would like to challenge you to put White Oak on the map with your amazing creations. JOIN ME AT BUILD WITH CHROME.
It’s getting to be that time again when parents and children begin to search the shelves for those elusive school supplies. Below you will find each grade level’s required list for the 2014-2015 school year. Click on each list to print or save it. We look forward to seeing each of you in just a few short weeks. Enjoy the rest of your summer break.
