    Pandora Station-Andriana Hench
    I created a Pandora radio station page to use in my class. I have different stations to use for different activities. One page, Spa Radio, has calm music to play in the background while students are working independently. It will be good for RTI time when I work with students one on one, and hopefully keep talking to a minimum. I also have a Raffi and Peter, Paul, and Mary page with fun songs. There is a school house rock station with fun learning songs, and my favorite, a dance station. The dance station is great for times when we need a quick break and need to move around, we can have a one song dance between lessons, or whenever the students are antsy. We talked about the benefit of students moving around while learning, so I thought the stations could also be incorporated into active learning games or activities. I edited most stations as much as possible to eliminate songs that were not appropriate and encourage good songs. A great thing about Pandora is that you can tell it what you like and what you don't like, and it adjusts. The longer I use the program, the more precise the songs are to my taste.
    Class newsletter -- Kelly Eaton
    I created a newsletter for my fictional third grade class. I think this will be very useful for me to keep in touch with parents, and for students and their parents to keep in touch as well. I created it using PowerPoint because of the fun clip art and interesting format things you can do. I included important information, such as upcoming school events and a brief note from me about what units we are about to start in social studies and science. I also included a couple fun things for the students, like student of the month, a reading corner, a section on birthdays, a quote of the month, and a little extra information on me because as a student I was always curious about my teachers. I want my monthly newsletters to be something students can bring home and read with their parents. When I actually begin teaching, I plan on posting the newsletter on my website as well as handing out hard copies to my student. Here is an example of my class newsletter: {newsletter_kkeato.pptx}
    Kidspiration -- Kelly Eaton
    I made a concept map that I would use in a kindergarten unit on the five senses. The end product looks a little bit overwhelming, but we would start off in the beginning with one sense a day, and then connect them all in the end. I would use kidspiration in this unit with a Smart Board as well. On the day on hearing, for instance, I would have the nose up there as the center concept. Then to the side I would have all the different pictures (except the eye, mouth, hand, and ear) and at the end of the day a few students would go up and attach the pictures they associated with smelling to the nose. I included a few pictures I thought the kids would find really fun, like the jellyfish and the toilet. We would continue in the manner through sight, touch, taste, and hearing until the final day, when we would connect them all together to show how we don't just use one sense at a time. This works not only as a fun exercise for the kids to think through their knowledge of the senses, but it also works as an assessment to make sure my students are learning what they should be. Here is my end result: {5senses_kidspiration.jpg}
