Hey guys, I've been SUPER busy trying to prepare for Open House (this Thursday), so I'm really slacking on the blogging.
However, I wanted to let you know that I've put my Famous African Americans Research Pack on sale now that Black History Month has ended.
If you'd be interested in purchasing it for next year or for just anytime, I guess, then it will be 15% starting tomorrow, March 5th, through Friday, March 8th.
Here is the direct link to the product on my TpT store:
Black History Research Project with QR Codes
My students are all (but 2 who never finish anything) finished with the research part of their project and are totally taking off with their products to share their learning. It is amazing to watch them be so self-driven about their learning!! I wish every assignment were this engaging for them. Sigh. One lesson, one unit at a time is all we can do, right?
Many of them are making slide shows on Animoto, which is amazeballs and easy if you haven't tried it!
Here's one of their Animoto shows...this is his first draft--he has since made many improvements to punctuation, etc., but how awesome is it for an 8 year old??? His next task is adding some more specific details to his facts so we can learn even more about his famous American in history!
Several are writing and performing puppet shows, and others are making Power Point slide shows and using Apps like Educreations or Fotobabble to share their learning.
YAY for getting my 2nd graders excited about research and getting them working on something because they WANT to! Yay self-motivation!
Hope you are all having a good week and are hanging in there until Spring Break--holla--my 32nd birthday (I told my kids today I was turning 25, LOL) is coming up on Monday, so I'm definitely going to host a big sale for the occasion in case anyone's looking to do some shopping over Spring Break, haha!
Thanks for stopping by my little blog, and I'll try to post something more interesting soon!
