We have been studying the story of the USA since September. Now that we are moving west and more and more territories have received statehood, we did a little research on them. Each boy chose a state and completed a Power Point as a brochure. Look to the green box to choose a state and see his work!

WOW! I just took a peak at a few classroom blogs, and it is amazing what teachers and students are doing. It is also a bit overwhelming...I have to remember that some blogging is better than no blogging and that the goal is to do better tomorrow than I did today. With an awesome group of boys like I have this year, I feel confident that we can do some cool things. Keep your fingers crossed!

I told the boys in very general terms about setting up this blog and how my goal was to break out of our four walls in the classroom. They (like me) are excited to begin building our network and witnessing it through the cluster map. Slow process...errors are likely (which is a good thing)...and together we will come out better for it...right?

FIRST BLOGGING MOMENT...For the first time in a long time, I remember what it feels like to stare at the screen and wonder what to write. It is so easy as a teacher to forget what my own students experience so frequently. I hope this blog will help make me a better teacher and will eventually turn into our class blog for so many reasons.
