With everything going on, virtual teaching and taking on DLC requirements for the primary in my building I guess posting about my grant update slipped my mind. I am always so grateful and appreciative of the innovation grants not only this year during trying times, but also all the other years that they have awarded my classroom with materials and innovations to make my students more successful. This year I am so happy to announce that Carr Creek Elementary’s third grade was awarded merge cubes AND rocketbooks. Each of these items will be able to be used virtually or in person and will provide my students with experiences that otherwise we may lose out on this year. In the primary I continuously worry that my students will lose that pen to paper connection due to so much virtual learning. BUT with the rocketbooks students will be able to have a re-usable notebook that connects not only to google drive but to google classroom as well!! How awesome is that? These notebooks were just sent home right before Christmas break so my students are still brand new to them. We get to return to school in person Monday so I hope to complete a tutorial about the notebooks then and allow students to use them whether we are virtual or in person to submit their work. More updates to come!
