Well, today due to a scheduled science field trip for my seventh graders (one that I knew about but forgot), I spent the whole day with the eighth graders I saw them in the morning and then again in the afternoon when I would have seen the seventh graders.
We are currently studying the industrial revolution and reading the novel Lyddie by Katherine Patterson to learn about it. Not wanting to read for a double class, I went to the library to see if the lap top cart was available. I wasn't expecting to be able to get it, but the stars were aligned today! The cart was available until 12:30. Whoohoo!!!!!
I quickly signed it out before any other Last Minute Molly wanted the cart and grabbed it for my 8th graders. I thought it would be fun to check out storyboardthat with them in the morning. It was easy to get the students signed up. They loved it. Here are a few of their examples.
