5Sm Using Bitstrips!!

While visiting in this class today I watched students engaged on the computers working away on an advertisement using Bitstrips.  Student creativity was flowing and all students were putting the finishing touches on their creations.  I could tell from the level of engagement that students enjoy working with this program and are busy writing away in a new format.  Thank you 5Sm for the visit. 

Please share with me and others who read what your opinions are of this program.

8K Learn Bitstrips!!

I had the pleasure of visiting 8K this morning to introduce the class to a new Ministry licensed program called Bitstrips.  This program allows students to create comic strips or graphic novels using a variety of tools.  Each student logs in separately and has their own account and must create their Avatar who gets added to the class photo.  It is a very exciting program that is sure to engage students in the writing process and allow for creativity to run wild.  I am waiting in anticipation to see the first creations by this very talented groups of learners.  Great work 8K!

Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions here with me and other readers regarding this program.

Mrs. B Get’s Last Laugh!

Pictured below is what I had to walk into this morning as Mrs. B’s Cincinnati Bengals were once again victorious on Sunday versus my defending Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers’.  Although it is not easy, I am sitting amongst the orange and black decorations for the day.  I am hoping we get one more opportunity in the playoffs to seek revenge.  Good job Mrs. B, I bet you are hoping a playoff match will not occur so that the good feeling will hold over until next year.  Great Fun!!
