Semester One....In the Books!

Well, I did it.  I made it through my first semester in the teaching program.  I turned in a pretty awesome portfolio if I do say so myself!  I wanted to do a post linking to some of the technology I included in my portfolio.

I made so many different things for this portfolio.  I had to turn in a week of lesson plans for one unit.  I did my unit on habitats.  So.....if you are a student doing a unit on habitats, this is the post for you!

I had to make a Prezi.  If you have never heard of is the "new" PowerPoint.  Very cool!

I also made a Glogster.  I've never heard of Glogster before.  It's pretty cool too.  Not sure if I would use it in my classroom, but it would be a really cool tool if you taught older grades I think. 

I made some cool PowerPoints and an interactive power point game, but I won't bore you with those.  I don't know exactly how well I did on my finals, but all I know is that I did well! YAY!!  Straight A's for me!

I really did learn a lot this semester!  I'm 25% done with the teaching program and have 3 more semesters to go.  It really is going by fast! 
I'm not blogging as much as I would like.  One of the main purposes of this blog for me is to use it as sort of a journal to remember my journey to the classroom.  I've been subbing a lot lately and I'm excited to tell you about that.  I'm really enjoying that time in the classroom and how much I am learning. 
And...I can officially say that I will graduate with my Bachelor's Degree NEXT YEAR!!!!
