Welcome back to a new school year!
Here's a video greeting from Mrs. Yollis!
Here are some links to the summer events mentioned in the Welcome Back video:
1. ISTE Insights ~ Learn about Promethean's Thank a Teacher Contest and what Mrs. Yollis learned at the Texas technology conference!
2. Photo from the family wedding in Montana. Notice I wrote a paragraph about my Uncle Don using the Step-Up to Writing Format that you learned in second grade! This color coded Step-Up to Writing paragraph format will be used in third grade, so be sure to review my example and refresh your memory. :-)
3. Photo from my time at my family lake cottage in Minnesota!

Parents & Students
Here are some links for you to peruse as we start our year of learning together:
A. This blog is the centerpiece of our classroom community. It is a wonderful space for sharing and learning together. Here is a link to an article I wrote about the benefits of classroom blogging. I hope you'll have a chance to read it before our Back to School Night.
B. We also have a class Photo-of-the-Day blog! Anyone is welcome to contribute a photo or comment throughout the year. Join our 365 Photo-of-the-day project! :-)
C. We will be learning about blogging and integrating technology in the classroom via the Student Blogging Challenge that starts September 8.
