Did you know... kids farthest from the teacher can miss up to 40% of what's being said? Did you know that 25% of what the teacher says in class never reaches students' brains? Write a grant or speak to someone who might be able to purchase you a Juno Tower TODAY :)

Have you ever tried out an Internet Scavenger Hunt? Many people see my blog posts about internet scavenger hunts and ask – are these webquest? Well, yes and no. Webquests tend to be a teacher led guided activity through websites. Internet Scavenger Hunts, on the other hand, provide students with websites, games and videos that they hunt through on their own – or with a partner – to find information to answer a series of questions or complete a graphic organizer. Never tried these out, not sure if they will work with your class? Well, there are 5 internet scavenger hunts – all of varying levels – available for FREE in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. Stop by and grab them today.

Before we start on our wonderful technology projects, we should always know what technology knowledge and access students have. One way to find out what technology students have at home is to send home a technology survey to parents at the beginning of the school year. You can find the technology survey pictured below in my newly released Parent Communication Forms and Surveys packet.
