    Greetings Teachers,

    A few days ago, I shared a really cool project idea with you. Through tinkering around with the shapes in Microsoft Word, I was able to redesign, what I like to think is very close to, a Minecraft character. My students are in love with Minecraft, so this was a great opportunity to design a cross-curriculum activity that was not only educational, but fun.

    As you will see, this project touches on a variety of area:
    Math: students work with shapes
    ELA: Students create interesting story lines and dialogue between characters.
    Art: The students select background images and design creative layouts for their story. The utilize
    colors, and shadowing to create debt and dimension.
    Technology: Students use a variety of formatting tools to enhance shape and images. The students also
    develop the keyboarding skills as well as learn how to edit their writing.

    After looking at this project, I would deeply appreciate any comments that you have. I am developed an entire unit with this Minecraft activity. I am open to suggestions.

    P.S.: I also have a Step-By- Step video that I created for my students. I have so 2D activities as well.
    Screen-O-Matic is awesome.

    Enjoy your spring break teachers. If you like renting movies here's how to rent a movie for free from any Redbox. Text the word MOVIENIGHT to 727272 and you will receive a code.

    Let me know how it turned out.

    Can someone recommend a "gaming activity" or program for a STEM summer camp?
    • Mrs. Jensen - scratch is a web-based platform that allows students to create their own video games and learn to program at the same time, if you do a little digging you can find some lesson plans and activities for the students that are already made by other teachers.

    • Ms. Joyce - Depending upon age group also use code.org or codeacademy.org. Scratch also has a great elementary "Scratch Jr" app.

    Hi Friends,

    I want to make sure my students have the materials they need to succeed. So I've created a classroom project request at DonorsChoose.org, an award-winning charity.

    I'm asking for donations of any size to help my kids. For the next four days, any donation you make to my project will be doubled (up to $100). If you know anyone who is passionate about education, please pass this along. Your donation will brighten my students' school year, and you'll get photos and thank yous from our class.

    Here's my classroom request:

    To have your donation matched dollar for dollar, enter the promo code SPARK on the payment screen. This awesome match offer lasts through October 17.

    My students and I greatly appreciate your support.

    In our school we need to create extensive library - on line resources to be of high quality.
    Can some help me in getting General sites such as Questia, Brittanica, maybe there are others specific to subjects but I would prefer general sites.
    Thank you.
