C4T Summary of Jennifer Brokofsky

Mrs. Brokofsky is a Math teacher. I am horrible at math!! I have actually learned about some math types that I think will even help me now. I  have never been good at math and it was really nice to learn some things that will help me now. The first post I read by Mrs. Brokofsky she talks about teaching can some times be like driving a car. We can not just drive the car ourselves she says "Teachers are very skilled in I do it (I’ll drive) and You do it alone (You’re in the vehicle alone) phase, but it is the middle two phases We do it and You do it together that we need to focus more attention on. “We do it” is like sharing the wheel with the students" This stuck out for sure! I think this will be great for any teacher this is probably one of the most important tools that a teacher can have. Her next post she talks about an assignment that she didn't do well with as a student and then used the assignment with her students. Which is something to think about. Don't do something that you see failed, try a new route. I really enjoyed her post.

C4K Summary November

The first C4K I had in November was part of Mrs. Yollis' Class His name is Rexon. Mrs. Yollis had her class do a project called the 365 day Photo Archive. I had Day 281 and Rexon had put pictures of Aspen trees in Colorado. They are beautiful and yellow the leaves are turning. He did a great job.

The other C4K I had was a student in Ms. Squires class. In her class they did a project for science where they made comets! From what I read the class was very excited. I am going to teach high school history but for a science teacher this is a great project and the kids love it. They told what they did, exactly how they made them. They actually sounded really good. I am posting the ingredients below.

Blog Post # 14

After exploring by Jose Pircado I was very impressed. His list of resources was incredible there were so many resources that I had never heard of! Some of which I use often though. I love Gimp, Facebook, and iTunes of course. Gimp is something I discovered this year and use for editing my personal photos. One of Mr. Pircado's resources I think I will be using is I really liked it. What I was most impressed with of  all is what an amazing website! How useful it will be in my classroom! I will be going back to this blog. I saved it so that I can use his list of sources in my classroom.

Final PLN Report

I chose to use Symbaloo as my PLN. I made it my homepage on my computer and love it. I have links to my job, bills I have to pay, and so many more things. I think it will be a great tool to pass on to my students. I have passed it a long to a few friends who also love it. Thank you so much for showing it to us.
