I taught in the elementary school for 36 years and am now retired. Half of those years were spent teaching technology classes and most of the other half were in a third grade classroom.
Since I have a strong background and interest in technology, I loved to use it in some way in everything I taught. Writing is a particular favorite of mine so my students used the computer to write in many different genres. I love the mini-lesson where the teacher plants the seed and the students are responsible for the growth and enrichment of the learning. Journals became an easy tool to hold lots of information that students had access to as a reference.
