Week 12 wrap up!
*This was the last week for my unit on Mo Willems with Kindergarten. We finished by reading a book in the Elephant & Piggie series. Students also voted for which character was their favorite (Pigeon, Elephant & Piggie, Knuffle Bunny, or Leonardo).
*I helped out with a professional development session on informational texts and close reading (CCSS shift). I shared resources with our teachers like DISCUS, TrueFlix, TumbleBooks (I shared how to get to the non-fiction books), etc. I have a Pinterest board with lots of links and resources on it that I shared with them as well.
*I helped one of our practicum teachers with a lesson she is planning with 1st graders in the next couple of weeks.
*Media Technology students wrapped up the unit on creating a podcast with Garageband.
*Scratch LEAD Time was Wednesday. We taught our group how to create a game.
*Wednesday was also early release for our students. I met with teachers to plan upcoming lessons and programs.
Other fun things that happened this week:
*PAWS to Read at Pets, Inc. I really almost brought home one of those puppies this time.
*New Diary of a Wimpy Kid came out on Tuesday. Just as good as the rest of them!
