The Shape of Things Project

After three days in Canada and a workshop in Seattle, I got a few wonderful days to visit with my two youngest grandchildren in Seattle. Remember, if you get any choice in the subject, become a grandmother when you are young!!! They certainly had me going, but it was wonderful being with them. I fly home to Cleveland tomorrow, through Houston, making it a very long day. Someone in the Houston airport seems to schedule whichever connecting flight I am taking to be at the opposite end of the airport from where I have landed!

Many of you are already signed up for Jennifer Wagner's Technospud project The Great Egg Role. That registration is closed. But, Jen takes no time to rest between projects and on April 1st. (mark your calendars) she will open registration for the next project The Shape of Things. The website is up and many of the activities you may want to include in lesson plans for the next few weeks in preparation for participating in the project. The website for The Shape of Things can be found at It is done on a Wiki, which will help you see this Web 2.0 format. One of the object's of this project is for everyone to share in a digital arena. Won't it be fun to see what classes from many places will do with their shapes?

Make sure you also sign up for Jen's Project Newsletter so you will always be informed of the Technospud upcoming projects. Sign up at

I am heading home for a few weeks before heading out to Cincinnatti, Detroit, Madison,WI, and Appleton, WI, and doing a workshop in Cleveland. This is all the week of April 14th.
