Obviously I haven’t written in a while. Real life tends to get in the way.
Flipping my 5th grade classroom is still going well in the classroom. It has been an amazing experience and one that I am so glad that I tried. I do have to admit in a bit of a negative fashion that it takes a lot of time and that I am not sure that the positive effects in my classroom outweigh the negative impacts at home. We are a busy family that does a lot of running around…with kids that sometimes play more than one sport in a season. I believe that I will be switching grade levels next year which will mean starting from scratch. I think I am going to give myself permission to back off just a little bit. Will I still flip? Yes….but it might not look the same in my grade level.
BYOD? Never happened. My principal was too concerned with the equity issue.
I have spent time experimenting with Mybigcampus.com this year and I have to admit that I am a fan. I hope to continue using it in my new grade level.
I just realized how discombobulated this blog is. I just found out that I have diabetes and obviously my mind is elsewhere.
