Dawn Jeffries

I am Dawn Jeffries and teach first grade at Montgomery Elementary in NY.
We have 3 computers that are getting old. But this year I was lucky enough to have
a smartboard installed in my room. We use our computers daily at least 3 times a day. I allow them to use them in the morning as free time. We use the smart board with all my lessons. I love starfall.com and internet4classrooms.com as resources. We use the gallery software for writing and note taking as a chalkboard/chartpaper. We use our computers during centers which are set up on programs that goes with the curriculum taught that week. I was unsure of how to use kidspiration in the past but overcame that challenge with my masters degree class. I used the program and became familiar. I plan on using the kidspiration templates that others and myself create in learning centers and as whole class instruction to tie in with the literature. I am excited to get ideas from others.

Talk to you soon!

    Dawn was a student in my online graduate class last semester.
    It was a pleasure learning with her and I am thrilled that she is a participant in our project.
    The spring semester will begin in two weeks and I've made some revisions that incorporate more Web 2.0 tools. NYS requires participation hours so one of my recommendations is to work with students and teachers on podcasting.
    I created a podcast in Clickcaster. It is free and very user friendly. Try it out!
