Today, our class had a wonderful virtual field trip watching President Obama speak about reading and literature. He encouraged young readers to dive into some classics, motivated the discussion to help get more books into student's hands, and spoke about future careers in Math and Science.
The students were very engaged as the President spoke. It was a joy to watch how captivated they were in the leader of our nation. I would highly recommend that parents and students take the time to watch the conversation. Discovery Education hosted the event, so go to their website and search in their archives for "OfThePeople".
As I am slowly getting my blog up and running, it's time for the great debate...what is it going to be? Do I want it completely geared towards classroom learning, make is interactive, or focus it on literature? If I am being honest, I would love for it to be all of the above!!!
