Tool #5

Learning to use Make Beliefs Comix.com was alot of fun. It's not often I refer to anything I create on the web as fun!

Creating poems will be much more engaging for students using Wordle. The layout makes poetry come to life on a page.
Unfortunately, after spending 11/2 hours on my own comic strip. . . I LOST IT:(

As a 5th grade teacher I really need to learn how to navigate Google Apps because I will love it for use during teaching.

Tool #4

Obviously using the Google Apps tools for assessments allows students to become proficient in answering all types of questions. Using essay style questioning along with multiple choice questioning will strengthen student communication skills. Of course it will enhance as preparation for the STAAR test as well.
