My 3rd graders are just now beginning to use Edmodo. I embedded a Quizlet on Character Counts (the model we use for PBIS). This augments the lesson since there is immediate feedback and improved engagement when they play Scatter this way. This also allows me to incorporate the much needed social skills into the technology class.
Letter Writing Modified with Read Write Think
I have taught 3rd graders parts of a friendly letter using Microsoft Word. I am trying to push this skill down to 2nd graders this year, but it is difficult. Fortunately the Read, Write, Think activity Letter Generator allows students to focus on the content and places their content where it should be in a friendly letter. Students can then print this model and use it to transfer their information into Word or another word processing software. This augments the lesson and allows them to focus on the content, then the placement of their words.
