Digital Learning Day
Wednesday was Digital Learning Day. Here is a list of what we use almost daily.

(The children could not believe it when I told them I did not have any of the things listed on the chart when I was in first grade:)

We connected with our learning partners.
With Mr. Ross's class in Webster City, we used a backchannel called Today's Meet to write a story from the cat's point of view. Mr. Ross's class was the fish!

With Mrs. Cavin's class in Georgia, we played a shape hunt game on Twitter.
