Student Practice

Good Afternoon 2nd Grade!
I am getting very excited to leave for my trip on Saturday but I have been very busy this week getting prepared to go! So far, I have spent this week getting my technology together and packing my bags. Based upon what we have discussed in class about Canada, what items do you think I will be taking on my trip? Why do you think I will need these items?

Also, as you know, I will be studying mammals in Nova Scotia. We studied mammals at the beginning of the year so it's time to review. What is a mammal? What are some examples of mammals that can be found in Iowa? What kinds of mammals do you think I will be studying in Canada? Do you think I will see the same species of mammals in Nova Scotia that I see in Iowa?

Your job is to answer the questions that I post in your writing journals. You will also be discussing your journal writing as a class with Mrs. Hamilton. After you have discussed the questions as a class with Mrs. Hamilton, she will choose a couple of you each day to make comments and post your answers my questions on my blog. I also would like for you to post questions for me to answer as well if you think of some while you are writing and discussing.

DON'T FORGET TO WRITE YOUR NAME AT THE END OF A COMMENT SO I KNOW WHO IS WRITING TO ME! :)

As my departure time draws closer, it is now YOUR turn to practice reading my blog and posting comments each day to answer the questions that I ask you. We will be spending our computer lab time today practicing how to access my blog, answer the questions, and post your answers in my blog. I look forward to reading your comments and hope you enjoy this interactive online learning experience! :)

Mammals have hair or fur. They have live babies and produce milk for them. Mammals are also warm-blooded.

Mrs. Quam,
I'm looking forward to reading your blog and all of your student responses! What an exciting adventure and a great way to connect through the use of technology. Have a safe trip!
