Welcome to the cloud...

Why? What?

What are these white lines for? (crosswalk)
Why is there yellow paint on the curb?

Sometimes we forget that some kids have not had the background knowledge developed for even the simple things most of us take for granted.

I teach in a rural area, and many "city" constants only exist in the school zone.

So, in a city, how would a city kid understand about the forest? or a snake? or a lizard? or nightcrawlers? These things my students know.

Something awesome is happening on a new channel in YouTube. Ben Wilkoff has gathered together a few everyday educators who are sharing weekly vlogs about education.


This week we're discussing what education might look like in five…


Veterans Day, Google Apps, And More

Posted on August 16, 2012 at 9:31am 0 Comments

I know everyone is ready for that first bright day when our students return to socialize and learn. But here are a few ideas for using Google Apps, including an activity for Veterans Day: a short 150 word essay on the simple topic "Honor All Veterans." This was sponsored by our local VFW last year, but two of my students carried it further, and if you use Google Apps, you might want to try this, or adapt it to another project.



Google Docs is our tool to…

iPad Resources

I've begun to research iPads in the classroom and joined the iPad group.


I added this info there, but thought others may also want it:


Here are some resources I'm looking at:

Hi Sheri, Thanks for the idea of cross posting here. I like how you did that. Great idea! Thanks!

Thanks, Sheri. I am very new to Classroom 2.0 so this helps me think about other ways participating here. 


Our school year is off to a great start! Last week was the first week with students. I've already done one In-Service (your help with the Essential Question was the driving force behind it's success because for the first time, they got "why" we need to address digital citizenship). It's a brand new principal and I sing her praises! Next week, our Super has asked that I start training the principals (1 hour per week) on PBL so they can lead their campuses in student engagement. I also have 4 other PDs I'm running on collaboration coaching and will blog in a classroom with a newbie to blogging. I'm super excited for where our district is going, and trying to remind myself to not get overwhelmed. =)


Kind regards,

I left you a message but I am not sure where it went, so here I am typing it once again:) I hope that you are doing well! I am once again getting back into work mode as I research and plan for the upcoming year. I am so excited about getting to work with you once again!

Hi Sheri,
Just touching base as I begin to get back into work mode:) I have a lot of catching up to do as I research, read, plan, etc. Are you still visiting with grandchildren? Hope you are enjoying your summer:) Looking forward to working with you again!

Hey Sheri,

Our Brainyflix video contest just ended, and I wanted to thank you for helping us get the word out. We got 800 submissions from across the country!

That said, MIT was really happy with the results and will let us run another contest, so we're going for it! But this time, we're gonna have kids create Brainypics flashcards - which are images and sentences paired up with a one of our SAT/ACT words. The contest ends May 22nd, and there'll be iTunes and a cash prize like last time. To boot, we'll double the payout if the kids can hit a certain goal. More details at

We'd love to have your kids involved. If it's not a good fit for them, maybe you have some colleagues you could pass our info to.

I just read your post on my Classroom 2.0 page. I can't even begin to describe what an amazing teacher you are. I have shared with some PDS colleagues about all of the wonderful collaborative wiki activities that you have introduced to me and my students. They are so impressed with your 21st century teaching. It is definitely on board with what PDS is all about, and you just have a wonderful, natural vision of taking learning to a whole new level. Nespelem school is very fortunate to have you!

I just got back from the faculty retreat. It is great to see you on Classroom 2.0! Looking forward to talking to you.

Cool! They can definitely do it!!! We've had middle school and even a few elementary school kids make videos. It's just about trying and having fun!

If you'd like, I'd be happy to send them an encouraging message to get them involved. :]

Hi Sheri. I was wondering if your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. Perhaps you have some educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at Please let me know. Thanks!
