What a day! SOLSC Day 2
Today was a day to remember! My class is very excited about the writing challenge and eager to write, comment, and to see what comments they've received. This all sounds great, right? Well, I thought so too, and I couldn't wait to get into the classroom and dig into our day.
I was returning to the classroom after having been out for a professional development day. The classroom looked normal, a few things were in disarray, a few papers and books scattered across tables and a few chairs left out. I walk around tidying up our room as I thought about our day ahead.
The kids came in greeting each other as they grabbed iPads and raced to computers all to check in on what comments they had received and to begin slicing. The room was abuzz with excited seven-year-old writers! Just the way I liked it!
Then out of nowhere, it happened! "Mrs. Frazier, this computer won't sign in." "Mrs. Frazier my password won't work." "Mrs. Frazier my iPad isn't letting me type."
You know how crazy a classroom can be when you don't have enough pencils? Try having 22 excited seven-year-old slicers and no internet!
What a day!
