iPad Pilot

I’ll miss seeing you guys today, but I am so excited that you’re getting your iPads!  I’ve got a few things planned for using them this week, so be sure to send me that email at amy.benton@reg5.k12.ct.us, and put your period number in the subject line, so that I may invite you to Dropbox.  This way we can share files digitally on the iPads.  Have a great time, and I will see you on Wednesday.

Book Spine Poetry

So far, I am loving the book spine poems you’ve created. We will have time in the Media Center on Tuesday to photograph your poems.  Then the final product, with your analysis paragraph, will be due on Friday of this week.  If you need to double check the assignment sheet, you can find it in our period folder in Dropbox.  I’m looking forward to another great week with you!
