Collaborating with Ms. Hughes

Working with Kathy Hughes has been an honor this year! Although I am her "mentor" I have learned so much from working with her. Thank you Kathy! I am impressed with Kathy's positive attitude, sense of adventure and willingness to try new things and stick with it until she fulfills the goals she sets for herself. Her students are lucky to have her.

Our final collaboration project went well for my class. I had my students work with a partner to publish two poems that they wrote. They chose one to type on their glogster and another to record and put their audio file on the glogster. We used ipods and italks to create digital voice memos. It was easy to download them to Glogster for the students to use. They also included the avitar images they created on We saved those as pictures and downloaded them to glogster.

Check out our poetry glogs on our classroom blog.

What a cool project, I can see how engaged your students are in creating their own poetry and pictures with both glogster and buildyourself wild. I really enjoy hearing their voices as well.

I liked the students' poetry glogsters. You can tell they put a lot of energy into their work! I'm going to share with my students next week and we'll try to post a few more comments.

Thanks for the comments on their glogsters! They love going to see if anyone has commented and what they said!
