My Crazy Idea...done
The projects are done (I think). Today we created our Voicethreads and it's looks like we are ready to present our projects to our parents. Let me go into a little more detail about the past week and what we've been doing.
As stated in my previous post - My Crazy Idea...Project Update I reconfigured the worksheet I had my students completing in effect simplifying it. The students worked to complete this worksheet. Once they completed the worksheets, I turned those answers into sentences. I allowed the students to place these sentences in any order. The sentences were used to create a Voicethread which they will present to their peers and parents.
This has been a great experience for me. The kids have really enjoyed having a say in their learning, and to see the looks on their faces when they heard their own voice come out of the computer was priceless! I will be doing some reflection on what we have accomplished, and areas that need to be tweaked, but that's a post for another day!
