Week 3 Updates

What have we been up to? This week we chose to write posts about our passions. Mrs. McKelvey wrote about her passion frogs! Boy does she ever love frogs. Pierce wrote about sailing because that’s something he really loves. We also checked out the Earth Hour website and joined as a class. We’ll be writing about our plans for Earth Hour this week. Caitlyn also posted about a upcoming special event at our school called Multicultural Fair. She’ll be sure to report on this week’s fair too since it’s this Friday. We are also visiting other class blogs and we’ve started adding them to our Blog Roll. Hopefully, we write a post about our favorite blogs this week too.

We posted some more work from week 1. Mackenzie and Nya wrote about cleaning up the beaches in San Diego. We have still have quite a few posts in the works too and will post them as they are finished.

About the Author

Hello my name is Karen McKelvey and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Curie Elementary School in San Diego, California. I began teaching at Curie Elementary in 2002. I feel fortunate to be part of such a great community. I love blogging with my students as it provides them with an authentic audience for their work. Collaborative group work and project-based learning are key components of my classroom. I completed my Masters degree in Educational Technology from San Diego State University in 2010. Many of the concepts/pedagogy and technologies I learned about in this program, like learning management systems, Google tools, and blogs are implemented in my classroom. Technology plays a key role in the learning that occurs in our classroom. We don’t learn about technology, we learn with technology. Students are engaged in activities that incorporate writing, research skills, critical and creative thinking skills, and much more on a daily basis.
