My Snowy Day

Last night we had a surprise snowfall of almost 5 inches just when I was going to plant a second row of snap peas in the garden. So this morning after snapping a few photos instead I decided to play with Word's draw toolbar and ComicLife. I have been introducing both programs to students all week and they are loving it. I'm going to visit department meetings next week and ask staff to brainstorm how they might use a set of digital cameras in their classes. Cameras would fit beautifully into English classes as students explore the ideas of theme, mood and setting. I can see them fitting into Socials classes for geography and maybe history if classes are visiting historic sites or museums. Science too seems a natural fit.
