Our school's digital coach, Mr. Crockett, spends his time teaching students and teachers fun and educational ways to use Chromebooks in the classroom. He is visiting fourth grade classrooms and teaching students to use Google Slides to create a personalized Jack-o-Lantern. Students then typed a short story to go with their Jack-o-Lantern. While doing so, students practiced paragraph writing as well as worked on their revising and editing skills. Definitely a fun and educational way to integrate technology in the classroom!
