"Nicole, This is a REALLY cool idea and I can see it's usefulness in the classroom. It gives the students a different view of daily events while giving them access to reading and writing skills. I also like the focus on a different country. I…"

"This is a great lesson!  I feel very uncreative with my lesson now!  When I first started reading your post about using ePals for math I was curious how you did this.  I now see and it sounds awesome!  I have only been to one…"

"Colleen, Your activity was very similar to mine.  I also used ePals and found a Message in a Bottle activity with a class from the United Kingdom.  I chose to do a spin on this for my lesson but the compare and contrast component was…"

Global Awareness Lesson

     For my lesson I chose to search Epals.com.  The site had wonderful ideas from educators around the globe and one caught my eye.  It was a class in the UK that wanted to do a message in a bottle project to learn about the culture of students from other countries.  I took this idea and make it my own.  I first simplified the idea by doing a pen pal match with the other classroom instead of having each student focus on a different country.  What I wanted my students to do is to write a…See More

"That is a difficult situation that your school district is going through.  I was in a school district when I first started teaching that went through a massive financial crisis and I lost my job because of it.  I understand what your…"

Nicole Schaefer replied to Diana North's discussion One to One Initiative in the group EDT6020
"  I related to a lot of what you had to say in your post.  I hate to say that the most relatable was the last couple of sentences about negative feedback.  It is very frustrating when the same teachers pick out all of the negatives…"

Nicole Schaefer replied to Diana North's discussion One to One Initiative in the group EDT6020
"     A one-to-one program at my school would be amazing but I am not sure of its possibility.  Our school is the largest elementary school in our district with over 600 students.  That is a lot of devices that would need to…"

Nicole Schaefer replied to Shelly George's discussion Dealing with children with anger issues
"I had a student a few years ago who would completely shut down when he got in trouble.  He would kick his chair or his desk and then put his head down and not move.  He would even go under his desk and get into a ball and cry.  It was…"

Nicole Schaefer replied to Colleen Fadden's discussion Is it hard to accommodate and give all the students in your classroom equal attention?
"I use a similar technique in my classroom.  I have a bucket I use for attendance.  Each child's name is on a clothes pin and they put their name in the bucket when they come in to the classroom.  I then use the bucket throughout…"

Nicole Schaefer replied to Rich White's discussion How are you using your classroom smartboard?
"I know that this is an old forum but I did notice some posts in recent days.  I am sure that over the past 5 years the interactive white board technology has come a long way.  I first got Smartboard two years ago.  I was so excited to…"

Nicole Schaefer replied to Karen Cameron's discussion 4 Reading Strategies for Struggling Readers
"I really enjoyed reading your forum post.  I teach third grade and reading group/center rotations are always so difficult to plan.  It has gotten even more challenging now because we are expected to differentiate our center activities so…"
