I guess this is the weekend that all of you are trying to "gear up" to get back to the classroom, hopefully well-rested. I remember how hard it was to leave the "vacation time" behind and get back to early risings and full days! But, if Winter Break is over, how far behind can summer be?
I always get excited when Jennifer Wagner announces a new project ready for registration and I got word of a new one today. It is called "From Me To You" and all of the information can be found at http://www.technospudprojects.com/Projects/vd2008/fm2u2008_info.html . Take a look at it - it involves having your students send out valentines to classes around the country. There is also a connection for using Google Earth. Once your class begins receiving valentines, they will begin "talking geography" and build understandings of where other students live in the United States. So many curricular goals can be met while engaged in a project such as this. Take a look at it. I'd love to hear if you participate in it.
