This is the third week of our collaborative project.
In an effort to let you know a little about us…
This blog is for our whole school to use. Mrs. Moore (that’s me) is a Technology teacher for Kindergarten through 5th grade. There are 400 studentsin our school. 200 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders are the ones who practice their commenting skills. The unique part is that everything seen here is done in a much smaller time frame than a self-contained classroom. Each class, out of 15, works with me in the computer lab for 1 hour each week. That means that we are limited by huge time restrictions. I may be crazy for trying to be buddies with such fabulous self-contained classrooms, but the possibilities are too incredible to pass up. Blogging is, for now, a foreign concept in our district. I am hoping to show other teachers how much potential is here. There are so many who can do this bigger and better, but for now, we’re just going to keep trying to do the best we can with what we’ve got.
This week will be an extra challenge for the Techie Kids. We will be trying to comment and respond from home because we are on springbreak this week! It’s always good to challenge yourself, right? ☺
☆☆The Techie Kids have some goals for their blog. They’d like to receive comments from at least10 different countries by April 9th. They would also like to have 50 new, unique visitors. Please help us reach our goals!☆☆
Please take a look around. We hope you find some interesting things.

Here is a peek at what it looks like near the Techie Kids.
The Techie Kids have enjoyed looking around areas near our Quad Blogging Buddies with 360 Cities. They were so excited to explore areas they hadn’t seen before, that they started to brainstorm interesting locations around the world. Here are the locations that they thought would be fun to investigate.
The Quad Blog concept was created by Mr. Mitchell in England. He thought this would be a good way for classes to connect and learn more about each other. At the same time, we can make our ClustrMaps or Flag Counters colorful! The students will be able to learn more about 3 different countries in a very fun way. Our hope is that we will have many meaningful conversations that will help flatten our classroom walls. We think this is a wonderful idea and are excited to be a part of it.
This is the first week of our collaborative project.
Mrs. Webb-Scheers has a special post prepared to welcome us.
