We learned about this very cool resource at the CNY SLS Conference where you can spell out any words using images from flickr. It is called Spell With Flickr, created by Erik Kastner, and I am hoping to use this resource with my U.S. History students as they will be creating their alphabet books online as digital books.
I plan on having students use graphic design sites (Tackk, Canva and Recite) suggested at this conference, and (s)mash or them with Flipsnack to create their own alphabet books. I’d like to catalog their books in our catalog in the library for future readers. I’m so excited that I have found a creative way for this teacher to continue to do this project with her students. Whether we are mashing or smashing these tools, I’m pretty sure they will make a splash.
I was amazed and inspired by Shannon McClintock Miller. I am going to try to make it a habit to post once a day, from now on, about my ideas and plans for curriculum and teachers. My whole goal is to stop being lazy about blogging. and show what I am DOING to promote awesome learning experiences in our school that engage our students .
