I thought it would be cute, promote classroom comradery, and encourage writing if the kids could post birthday wishes for the birthday boy or girl. I was kind of excited about Edmoto. I wanted to see what other teachers in Spring Branch were doing, but I had to have some kind of authorization code from the district to sign up and look at it. I guess I'll be checking that one out later in the year when I'm back at school. Since we are supposed to be encouraging student choice, I thought I could occasionally use Poll Everywhere to find out which read aloud students might want me to read. It's giving them choice but making sure whatever they choose fits in with whatever cognitive strategy I'm trying to teach.
