The day just got better and better


First thing this morning I navigated to the page where it was possible to record audio using Bubbleshare. When the children came in the page had been loading for a few minutes but unfortunately we have not been able to access the recording facility :-(
Two of my primary 3's have written an article for the local paper about our blog. With a bit of help from me they attached a photo and then e-mailed it. We hope to see it in next week's edition.
The interactive whiteboard is proving as popular as ever with the children and the latest CD in the At the Series is a must. As we are turning the house corner into a teddy toy shop they are very keen to use At the Toy Shop. This is a super resource which integrates ICT with role play from Granada Learning. We have already used At the Doctors and At the Vets. There are 6 in total so I look forward to trying the others.
Some of the children drew their teddies this afternoon using chalks, whilst others drew teddies using KidPix. Some photographed their teddies and added captions in ComicLife. If you have not got the new KidPix Deluxe 4 we can highly recommend it and if no one in your school has loaded ComicLife on your machines find out about it. The Beebots were out this afternoon as well and as I surveyed the children at work, engrossed in their various tasks, I couldn't help feeling a sense of satisfaction as they explored, investigated, achieved and enjoyed what they were doing.

    Hi Morag, I was just reading Marlyn's blog and one of your comments. Flappy the Crow is mult-lingual(!) so if your class want to send some German questions I'm sure he would answer...
