Happy Summer!

Wow!  It was a whirlwind 2nd semester!  I stayed busy teaching one of the best classes ever!  I also ran our Sharon Knights Relay for Life team, so as you can imagine, I didn't make time for updating my blog. (We raised over $2,500 for the American Cancer Society!)

I wanted to post an idea I had that our 4th grade team put together beautifully for the national BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology) tour our school was a part of in March.   Mrs. Tate created the iPad acrostic:  Inspire Passionate Accomplishments Daily.  Miss O'Connor helped me craft the giant iPad and printed the colorful icons.  Including Miss O'Connor and Mrs. Tate, we (Mrs. Daniels - me!, Mrs. Elz, Miss Grimes, Miss King, & Mrs. Simmons) all had students add QR codes to the apps or web tools that were used in our classrooms.  It was a great collaborative piece for the wall space in front of our Fourth Grade Small Group room.  :)
