2nd & 3rd grade computer project

Our principal asked me today to be the computer coordinator during our FLEX days (9 days) at school.  FLEX is a time for those kids who scored 75% or lower on academics or missed more than 7 days of school.  The academic kids will stay with their teachers during my one hour slot, but the attendance kids will come to me.  I think I might have free reign on what we'll be doing.  She suggested researching an animal or something, but it's up to me. 

I don't want it to be a time of sit and play computer games, even tho they might be educational.  I want us DOING something!  I also have an iPad and 4 iPods.

I know NewsMaker and some other programs, so might do something with that.  I could start a blog or a website and have them take pictures to put on there.  FLEX begins on Tues, May 28.... would love to hear your ideas of what you do...or would love to do!


  1. Just wanted to stop in and say I find you very helpful on TPT!! I'm your newest follower!

    Have you checked out storybird.com? They can create some neat things on there. Also, check out wonderopolis.com. In a couple weeks I will be having my guys do some computer research and writing up their own piece similar to a wonderopolis article.
