My Favorite New Toy
I have a new favorite toy in my classroom :)
Meet my Elmo. No, not the Sesame Street friend, but my new document camera. I have never had a document camera until this year and I am *loving* it. It really came in handy when I was showing my kids how to set up their notebooks or when I'm showing them how to set up a foldable.
It is connected to my computer, which connects to my projector/Promethean. By using the annotate over desktop of the Promethean, I can even write on it! Woot! The ELMO software also has an annotate feature, but it doesn't work up on the "big board".
Here's what my computer looks like when I'm using the ELMO:
So there's #MyFavFriday - My new ELMO!
Oh, and just because it makes me happy, here's a picture of my three ferrets all sleeping in their favorite cuddle sack :) I love how they are all lined up in a row!
