New Year, New Lens (aka 365 Days of Awesome)
We are looking for classes to join us on this leg of the journey!! All it takes is one week of capturing the goodness (whatever that may be, wherever you are, whichever mood strikes) around you. We ask that students send us 7 images, (or even just one!!) with captions/ details to add to our blog.
Thank you!!! My contact info is on my profile page.
OK...I have to admit I didn't follow through with this one, but I have my reasons! There were so many wonderful examples of "awesome" in our journey this year, that I lost track. PLEASE take the time to browse through archived posts and look at the many images from just the past 8 months. We made it to 365 well before the 365 days of Awesome...which rocks. :)
Thanks for your understanding!!!
Image 19/ 365: Collaboration. You know it's good when it's noisy, animated, and the kids have a serious mission!
Image 18/ 365 is a short video of pics from North Carolina. Click here!
Day 17/ 365: Handmade art welcoming back PS 207 into their "old" building after being displaced by Hurricane Sandy. A few glitches, weeks of going "without" what we take for granted, but all is well and the kids are happy to be home.
This one is just peaceful, isn't it?
Day 16/ 365: We had our first snow of the winter last night, and although we didn't get this much, here are two favorite pictures that are simply awesome from a previous winter.
Day 14/ 365: Breakfast! Today's Image of Awesome is a link to a blog post which contains 2 short video clips of great kids practicing their presentation skills. Click the link to visit!
Day 13/ 365: Does anyone remember Shrinky Dinks? Well, these little guys actually pulled up stools to sit and watch their Shrinky Dink Surfboards (!) transform in the oven today. Fun times, with several exclamations of "Awesome!!"--and no, the oven isn't on fire, it's just a reflection on the aluminum foil lining at the bottom.
Day 11/ 365: This is Ben, who gained a new moniker in the Mead World today as "Vat Man", for his magical abilities to transform honey, water, yeast, and fruits into sumptuous beverages any honey bee would be proud of. Uber-friendly and passionate about his craft, he was an apt choice for today's addition to the challenge. Visit their site, and them!
Day 8/ 365: There is something delightfully good about seeing students
eager to work during their lunchtime. A bit young for a working lunch?
Maybe...but their discussions are so animated!
|Day 7/ 365: Power to the PLN...empowering learning and teaching with virtual|
networking and meeting incredibly passionate teachers worldwide. #flatclassroom
Stay tuned for some Amped Up Awesome in 2013...
|Day 6/ 365: Simple truth. Go, kids!|
Day 5/ 365: Finding balance as an educator can be tough.
I'm thankful for my ability to run. Today was the first time
I've run 13 miles in years. 1:55:34. Thought about many things!
|Day 4: Setting goals with idioms|
Day 3: Smiling faces, eager to learn. By the way, these kids have phenomenal
super-hug-powers to thwart even the worst bad day / moment. Better than medicine.
Day 3: (photo #2) A beautiful NC sunset greeted me on the way home tonight and I
couldn'tresist a photo because it made me stop in wonder.
|Day 2: Wordle reflection; kids-centered classroom, |
but remember the impact on student learning.
|Day 1 of our challenge to seek the good and|
prepare for One Amazing Year!
