What a fun site. I enjoyed playing around with my photos and seeing them mashed up and arranged into a mosiac. I think this can be good to show different picture covers of books by the same author or books about similar themes. I think the students will enjoy seeing books in this type of mosiac just as much I did.
As you can probably tell....I really liked going around flickr. I have an account and just saved and used some of mine own picts. I found that when I first uploaded my picts. I left out the tags, now I realize what a huge mistake that was. I've also joined a lot of groups that I can share picts with as well. Here are a few of the picts that I took...
This is what you would call a Venezuelan HotDog....only this was awesome. Believe me, it's a lot better than how it looks. Only make sure to not wear a white shirt when eating....somehow I missed that memo.
The students at my school voted me to dress up as a leprechan. I actually had no idea that this was the costume that I was suppose to wear. It was incredible hot in that outfit, and hard to breathe. Going around the rooms, the kids were actually scared...and I even had one little girl cry. To this day, I'm not sure if I won or lost...but it was a lot of fun.
I have had an avatar before, so that wasn't so hard. I thought the instructions were really clear, and easy to follow. Once I found out how I needed to place my avatar on my blog, it was really a piece of cake. Thanks for making it easy for us. I'm looking forward to reading what others have wrote about their progress throughout the year. I'm looking forward to maintaining this blog.
For some reason I have some problems with Habitat 4. I know that when I find myself in a difficult situation, it's very easy for me to back down and change into something that I'm used to. I guess growing up, hearing everyone say "I'm not this, or I can't do that" has had an impact on my way of thinking. Now, I strongly believe in the power of positive reinforcement. It's going to be hard to change this part of me, but it'll help for the future. My strength would be Habitat 3. I can 3 easily view problems as a way of how I can improve myself and others around me. For some reason I don't get stressed out, which helps me to think clearly and reflect on how to improve for the future.
What an awesome concept.....learning about blogging at your own pace. I like this idea a lot. How many times have I been in one of those trainings that have just dragged on forever.....This is not only very fun, but also informative as well. I'm looking forward to this crazy adventure.
