Talk Like a Pirate & Our First Official Tweet

Today was Talk like a Pirate day!! Ms. Gardner and I dressed for the part! We also made sure that the rest of our crew had something "piratey" to wear! Throughout the day, I talked like a pirate and the kids did too! It started with breakfast count, then calendar, and then phonics! We even journaled "I am a pirate." The kids loved it! They were very engaged throughout each lesson! We ended the day with some time in fun Friday centers and talked about our first project that we will do on the iPad next week!! I can't wait to share that with you soon!

We also had our first student tweet from the Promethean board! We got to tweet with Ms. Murdock since she wasn't with us today (she had seminar at the university)! The children helped compose the tweet and then we read it together to make sure it made sense! Then we had a special friend press the "tweet" button to send it out! The children love twitter!! It is such a great tool to use to connect with others! We will also use it to learn on multiple levels in multiple subjects!
