Exciting Technology Updates

Beginning in January 2014, Bedford Junior High will begin to roll out the Chromebooks to all 6th grade students. Today, Mrs. Powell gave a training session on using the Chromebooks in our classroom. Some highlights of the Chromebooks are quick boot time, long lasting batteries, cloud saving and sharing of documents, and internet access. We will continue to train using the Chromebooks! Here are some photos from our session today.
Remember--- Please send in your Google and Chromebook Paperwork ASAP!

Island Map Project

In Social Studies our 6th graders became cartographers. We created mythical Islands that shared our knowledge about maps including legends, compass rose directions, physical features and human features. Here are some excellent examples!

Ewww.... lunch!

What is the worst lunch you have ever had? How about a olive and crab bagel or a oyster and pickle sandwich with hot sauce? To practice our descriptive writing we had Ewww.... lunches. We poked and smelled but didn't eat it! ps. Mrs. Currie's mom used to pack her olive loaf---- ewww.... gross!

Wow! I can't believe how quickly summer flew by. We had a great summer. We visited Columbus, Ohio for the World Series of 10U Softball- which was so fun. Kate (my daughter) and I went to Chicago and had a great time eating and sight seeing.

 I hope you all had a great summer too! Please feel free to comment and let me know where you went or what you did this summer!

I can't wait to meet my new classes in September!
