Digital Learning Day!
We had a great week celebrating Digital Learning Day, on March 13, 2015.
First, we worked on a new program, called Storybird, and wrote some wonderful stories and books. If you haven't checked out Storybird, I suggest you do. Your kids will LOVE it!
Then, we listened to our superintendent read an inspiring book called "What Do You Do With an Idea?" by Kobi Yamada.
We brainstormed ideas for things that we could do as a class and also individually to make the world a better place. My 2nd graders decorated an Egg, and then wrote their personal "Big Idea" on a slip of paper and put it inside.

The "Big Idea" we came up with as a class, was to collect travel sized items and put them in our "Bags of Love." We will give our bags to an organization that will give them out to the homeless in our community. We set a goal of 50 items in the week, and by the end of that week we had over 100.
The next week we set a goal of 500 and opened it up for our entire school to donate, and we collected 400+ before we left on Spring Break. When we get back from break, we will do a final count and see if we reached our goal. The kids are so excited about our "Big Idea."
If you would like to donate to our "Bags of Love," leave me a message with your email, and I will be in touch. Thank you, enjoy your Spring Break.
I have been relaxing and working on fun things to do in the last few months of our school year.
