Welcome to my first blog post! This is going to be a work in progress as I experiment with more tech throughout the school year. I've never kept a blog before, so here goes nothing! This will be a space to share successes and failures - and hopefully where we can share ideas!
Well I just finished the first week with my third grade kiddos, and I am absolutely exhausted but also excited about the upcoming year! I had limited time to set up my classroom this year, which was a challenge. The hardest part was rearranging the furniture! I needed to move my rug up to the front of the room (it was in the back previously) which changed EVERYTHING. For today's post, I'm just going to focus on my laptop station. It used to be on a large rectangle table at the front of the room. It looked like this:
We haven't started using laptops since the first week of school was focused on basic procedures and getting to know each other. My goal is to use them during this coming week! We'll probably set up our Google Classroom accounts and get in some typing practice at the very least. Excited to get the students used to tech routines!
Do you have a laptop station? Would you try this setup? I would love to hear about what works in your classroom! Leave a comment and share what works for you!
