Here is a link to some helpful tips for PowerTeacher!


See you at the training on 8/14 for 3rd and 4th grade teachers!


If you need a how-to video, a special lesson, or think of other ways I can help, don't hesitate to ask!


Try using the Smart clickers with a lesson to give you a quick way to assess what your students are grasping!

PowerTeacher Grade Book 

September 2012

Last week, Ms. Dofflemyer wanted to venture into Claymation again.  You may remember she won a $150 prize last year from the HCPS Technology Prize Patrol for her Claymation videos that her 4th graders created for a Virginia School Board Association contest.  This year, her 2nd graders were learning about life cycles.  We will be posting the results (the videos) soon on her webpage.

Technology can be fun, creating and motivating at any grade level!

Here, one of Ms. Dofflemyer’s students are using an iPad on the tripod and an app called StopAnimator to create their groups video.  All the “actors” are on the table from the eggs, to tadpoles, frogs and the pond.

WOW!  We have a lot of new instructional tools at our disposal this year!  Tomorrow we will be starting with PowerSchool training.  This will include our attendance and gradebook.  

This fall we will be leaving webmail and changing over to Gmail.  

We have BrainPop, BrainPop, Jr. and BrainPop Espanol. 

I am looking forward to working with everyone to integrate technology into lessons and projects to enrich our students' learning!
