Presidential candidates to prepare for their first time voting efforts in May.

In honor of Digital Learning Day, we have put a slideshow of the digital learning going on at Martinsburg High School on our website. Check it out:http://www.edline.net/pages/Martinsburg_HS.

Good Morning!  I've attached a photo of the children in my class using IXL to reinforce math skills, as well as the children who use ProXTalkers.  I teach at Mercer Elementary in Princeton (Mercer County), WV.  I have a self contained classroom of children with moderate mental impairments.  I have found that digital learning really enhances our curriculum.  We use several websites on a regular basis, from Education City to IXL and everything in between.  Almost all of our paper materials are projected on the Smart board through the ELMO and completed as a group.

The ProXTalker is a fantastic, easy to program machine for children who have speech apraxia.  It runs on RFID technology.  The square tags are programmed and when the child places the tag on the button, the button reads the tag aloud.  This has been a very helpful addition to the technology that is available to children in communicating with others.

As part of our read-aloud, I use the smart board.  I have chosen several books with beautiful black line drawings (The Spiderwick Chronicles, The Houdini Box) and I capture the picture using the ELMO and Smart Notebook.  I read the book, and we look at the pictures on the Smart board.  The next day, I ask one of the children to re-tell the story using the pictures on the Smart board to cue memory.  This has become one of our favorite daily activities.

We use digital resources every day - from the ProXTalker to the Smart board.

I hope to see many pictures of kids all over the state using technology on the website!

Please find attached 3 pics from my class.  We are working on timezones, focusing on the International Dateline and Greenwich Mean Time.  We are comparing/calculating times in our classroom with times in Afghanistan and Pakistan in conjunction with our unit based on the book "Three Cups of Tea."

More pictures from Mrs. Tenney and Miss Gaunt's 1st grade class.

Correction the picture labeled Kyndal in previous e-mail is of a student working on Ticket to Read on the classroom desktops.

The picture labeled reading is actually Kyndal working with Title I. She was being progress monitored using a wireless laptop.

The picture labeled TTE is of Elijah and the Apple iPad. He is displaying the opening screen to his story from the Toontastic App.
TTJ is of Joey and his story on the Apple iPad. TTK is of Kenny and his story.

I have reattached the picture of the student working with Title I, labeled Kyndal.
