We did a hands-on investigation today in science. Scholars created mini "riverbeds" with soil and pebbles to study how flowing water affects rocks differently than soil alone. More videos are available in our Twitter feed to the right.
The Scholars of Room 18 now have their own Twitter account aptly named @room18scholars. They are sharing ideas, projects, videos and want to connect with like-minded classrooms from around the world.
The Scholars of Room 18 are busy laying the "foundations" for their new Weebly websites. Most are focused on design but a few have moved on to the next phase: Embedding videos made using Educreations. Looking forward to the future!
Weebly.com is a great way to host student websites. A permission slip is built in to the Weekly Report that is going home today. Sign and return it. Then we'll start building a private student website where your scholar can post digital projects from class. It will be easy to share these projects with family and friends around the world.
Welcome back! I hope your vacation was relaxing and enjoyable.
