Well, you may have noticed that something looks different around here. Last week, the Techie Kids visited our blog buddies, Mr. Avery and Mrs. Watson’s, class blogs. They were super excited when they saw the Christmas decorations and immediately started asking if we could decorate too. Of course, they didn’t have to ask me twice! If you’d like to add some fun to your website, visit blogamation.com and take a peek at some of their cool animations.
I thought I’d share our Sqworl with some fun websites for you to try out this month. Can you share any of your favorites with us? We’d love to add them to our collection!
Don’t forget about having fun with Wordle too!
Just as an update, our 5th graders are working on their first-ever glog’s through EduGlogster. The Kindergarteners are planning and practicing for their first-ever video. Stay tuned to see how they turn out…
Do any of you have tips to share about making a glog?
Can you tell us about a favorite Christmas or photo editing website we should try?
Please share your favorite Christmas activity, tradition, or story with us.
