Now that I am back it's been busy as ever! Most of my time is spent catching up on my missed coaching days. I was able to work with first grade on a Google Drawings venn diagram and the students did a great job! They were comparing Cats and Dogs and the items they chose for the venn diagram were great (first graders are a hoot). The third grade class I worked with also used Google Drawings but did a fraction activity (see below for samples). It's great to get back into the classroom at least once a week and share some of these ideas with teachers!
My favorite story from this week however is while working with a student on a class website, Cinderella (clearly I nickname all the students I work with) added her contribution to the website and as I told her to be sure and add her name as the author she told me she needed to put "copied by" because she just copied it from a website. The whole conversation cracked me up and I couldn't argue with her because she was honest!
