Headed to Morocco
Soon, I will be teaching First Grade in Morocco. I am very excited about the move and have started planning for next year already. One thing I want to do next year is a center on “Traveling the World”. This center will allow me to utilize my single classroom computer (yes, I am going from teaching in a technology lab with 29 computers, a projector and a smartboard to a classroom with one computer) and integrate reading, writing, science and social studies. Students will use a glog (www.edu.glogster.com – have you checked these out yet, they’re awesome!) that I created to find answers for their country’s book. Since I believe in starting close to home, I decided to start with Morocco, which is where all of my students will call home for the school year.
As I am still planning, I’d love your feedback. Download my book on Morocco by clicking on it, and let your students use my glog (linked to the screen shot) to find the answers. It would be a great “filler” project for the end of the year!
When you’re done, post a comment and let me know how it works. Maybe I can tweak it before I even get my kids in September. Thanks for your help!
