When Technology Fails
I mentioned yesterday that my laptop died and had to be taken in for repairs or replacement. (I haven’t heard anything yet.) Today we had more technological glitches.
I had planned on using our tablets to launch reading with partners. I discovered Wonderopolis last year and have loved using it in my classroom. My students, also, have loved it.
Alas, it was not to be today. Even though I had charged all of my tablets last week and thought I had turned them off, I must not have. When I went to take them out this morning, they were all dead!
I started charging them, but they weren’t ready in time for our literacy work. So I had the students partner up and just read good ol’ books together! We reviewed expectations and then I set them free to read together. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they were able to do so for fifteen minutes without any interruptions!
I’m looking forward to doing it again on Tuesday with the tablets!
