At Lee Anne's suggestion, I continued research on establishing a lending library of Kindles and how this can be administered at the school level. Also on my radar: graphic novels and 101 for teachers, integrating clickers into a library lesson.
I was excited to work with Mrs. Fisher's class. Each group had 3-5 sentences about why their biography subject was important and they created a Voki to share with the class. This process involved some advance set-up on my part to create a class, assign passwords, and set everything up.
The process was not without a few bumps, but the students were very excited and enthusiastic about using Voki. Here's my introduction I played for them before we went to the library:
Next time I will allow a little more time to create and edit the Vokis, but I thought overall the 2nd graders did well.
I will miss my Pine Street friends next week as they enjoy the Book Fair and I attend the SCASL conference in Columbia. I plan to come back rested, rejuvenated and geared up for six more great days. Hard to believe this journey is almost over!
