This is Dedicated To…

My students just finished presenting the books they created on StoryJumper.com.

If you’re a teacher or a parent of young children, I highly recommend that you create an account at this site and let your child/children go to town.  It’s a precious site and completely free!

My students really enjoyed working on it, and I will definitely be using it next year.

For their semester exam grades, students had to stand up and read their stories from the Smartboard.

What a hoot!

Although I had helped most students edit their stories, they managed to sneak in a few surprises.

I had to chuckle when one student turned the “cover” and revealed the following dedication…

Talk about motivation!

The next student totally cracked me up with her dedication…

Her first two pages of the story looked like the following (the teacher in the picture could resemble me…minus the extra pounds and the glasses)…

I’ll admit that I am still laughing about this.

One of my other students in that class got up to present her book, and her dedication was the most touching of all…

The bonds that are forged between teachers and students is strong.  With each year that passes, my own treasure trove of memories grows larger and larger.
