One of our students in 2J, Carter, has gone to Belize for several weeks. To keep in touch with what we are doing back here in the classroom and to share his trip with us we have been keeping in touch using our Google Apps for Education. We’ve sent him a class magnet presentation and a video to watch for when he has some down time, and we’ve been keeping in touch using a shared Google doc. Below are some excepts from their doc: Keeping Carter in the Loop! If students have some extra time or during our Daily 5 writing time, many of them choose to go read the document and write to Carter as they really miss him and want to know how his trip is going. Our kids LOVE the pictures and the comments that Carter and his mom have been sharing with us!
