Smile Box

One of the staff found this website. It is really cool for slide shows to show off your photos.

Fun With Maths

On Friday I decided to use a you tube clip for maths maintenance with my streamd maths class. My students loved it, when I got my usual students back, the ones who stay with me for maths wanted to share. We were sharing when our buddy readers arrived and we shared with them also. I got them to stand up in their school houses and asked Private Mike etc to give the answer. They loved it.

I should have gone shopping for a similiar hat at the weekend. I was thinking we could remake the clip with my students.

Solo Taxonomy

Here is another video for our PD and sharing session next week. I thought I would think ahead and embed the videos I wanted in my blog to find them more easily.
I really like how this teacher talks about how Solo Taxonomy has helped her be clearer as a teacher and when she talks about being a friend this fits in with our beginning of the year activities. I also hope it inspires my colleagues with our journey that we have begun with SOLO Taxonomy.

Engage Me

I was looking for a clip to start a pd session at school.  I found this on You Tube.  I think it is great as something to make teachers think.
