Shape Riddles and More

This month I worked on incorporating more opportunities for my students to use technology throughout the day. In math, I used a few Promethean flipcharts on plane (2D) shapes and solid (3D) shapes to introduce these topics. I also used videos, word walls, and quizzes from http://www.brainpopjr.com/. After the students learned how to identify, describe, and compare plane and solid shapes, I had them write shape riddles and post them on our class blog. The students’ shape riddles are a part of a collaborative math project with Lisa and Michelle’s second grade classes. As a part of this project, their classes (along with any other visitors to our blog) can now visit our blog and leave comments and answers.

Another activity that my students worked on this month was publishing their writing using Microsoft Word. The students wrote about their thoughts on whether or not they like the snow. After revising and editing their work, they each published their own paragraphs. This work can also be found on our class blog.

Overall, using technology in our class is becoming more embedded into our daily routine with each passing day. The students have many opportunities to use the Promethean board, participate in lessons using Activotes, post blogs, and publish their writing. Their enthusiasm pushes me to look for even more ways to incorporate technology into each lesson.
