Where did all my books go??
Hi everyone -
Just a little note from the Lab Classroom 323. Thank you so much to the teachers who have reached out to collaborate; I really excited to work with you!
Update - I will be using Padlet 1st and 4th period on Wednesday and doing some mind mapping using vocabulary words on Friday during 2nd and 5th. I will be using Nerarpod for Social Studies during 6th period Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Here is a link to a google doc (I will try to have a fancier system for signing up soon) and if you want to come visit, just put your name in the time slot in which you are interested. I will reach out and confirm that you can get coverage for that period.
I also wanted to point out the vocabulary activity on page 58 of Word Work and Word Play (PDF shared by Mr. Pretto on every team's Google Classroom page). I am going to be using Word Wizard with my students this week, so if you want to pop by anytime and talk about it or see it in the classroom, please feel free. I will update next weekend on how it went. Here is how the procedure is summarized in the book. I think it sounds like a neat way for kids to practice tier two words outside of the classroom.
"In Word Wizard, students earn points by bringing in examples of how specific vocabulary words are used outside of the classroom. They can hear, see, or use the words to get points. The student must present their findings to the class, and once the teacher has approved the “evidence,” the student’s points get placed on a chart. Students can receive teacher-created awards for the points that they earn."
I hope everyone has a good week and let me know how Lab Classroom 323 can be of use to you!
