I’m linking up with Doodlebugs for my very first Five For Friday! Usually on Fridays I am so wiped I can’t even think of things to post. These past two weeks have been awesome and I have to share them! We started our Personalized Learning graduate course last week and have been on the go since day 1. The teachers have done an awesome job with this new learning curve – I just can’t say enough. So for this week’s Five for Friday I am going to highlight a few of our most awesomest moments as well as the fun I had this weekend.
1. iOS Training – On last Monday and Tuesday, we had a representative from Apple to come and give us some key tips, tricks, and apps to use. Jamie was really good – I wish I could have her job. Traveling around the country working with teachers about technology? A dream job….
2. Comprehension & Collaboration – This is the name of the book that we are using for our class. It focuses on inquiry circles in the classroom and making students responsible for their own learning. This book is very dense, but the information is excellent. We’ve been able to review the book and then make real world connections. Our goal throughout the entire class is that teachers have lessons that they can take back to their classroom and use.
3. Atlanta – On Saturday our church parish took our children and youth to Atlanta. We visited the Martin L. King, Jr. Historic Site and hit up a Braves game. The kids have a great time and were so well behaved. I had been a child the last time we visited the MLK site and it was amazing to me. The spirit in the church was overwhelming – it brought me to tears. It’s unbelievable how they preserved all of those items….absolutely unbelievable.
4. Father’s Day – After leaving at 3:30 in the morning on Saturday and getting home at 3:00 in the morning on Sunday we were exhausted. But we still got up for church and had a marvelous Father’s Day. I have a great hubby and a great daddy, so I had to give them this tribute:
5. Graduate Course Completed! Bring on the iPads…. – The course is done and now the hard work begins. Finding the ways to implement these amazing devices is going to be an exciting challenge. One I can’t wait to begin!
Until the next time!
