Today was another day of Genius Hour / Independent Reading. The best part of today was the integration of other teachers! For instance, we Skyped with Mrs. Smith from across the tracks, and she helped us out with a Prezi Tips website, Prezi for the Win, and she inspired the girls once again as to how to focus their presentation on the Warsaw camps. The Warsaw camps!!
The next great part of today was that Kendall wanted to invite teachers to see her presentation in a couple of weeks - she's been learning about magic, and wants to share. So... we took time to write an email to five teachers that she wanted to invite! How stellar - to have a real audience! Kudos to Kendall!
