Mixbook: An Electronic Yearbook Documenting Our Year In Grades 1 and 2

I love learning from so many amazing educators on Twitter, and earlier today, I was reading a tweet from @plnaugle. She teaches Grade 4 in New Orleans, and when I started tweeting last year, she was one of the first teachers that I followed. Paula always shares amazing ideas and really inspires me to try some new things in my classroom.

Today, @plnaugle was tweeting about Mixbook. She really just had a question about it, but having never heard of Mixbook before, I thought that I would take a look at her link. She just started a class yearbook on it, and her photographs and captions are amazing. I loved the idea of documenting our year in the classroom, so I thought that I would try it out too.

Paula just blogged about her Mixbook, and I was so inspired, that I thought that I would blog about mine too. I really just created the cover, but here is what our Grade 1/2 Yearbook is going to look like. I'm excited to add in more photographs throughout the year and document what is sure to be a very exciting year in Grades 1 and 2.

Thank you, Paula, for teaching me something new today and creating such a wonderful memory for my students!

Thanks Aviva. You have definitely taught me so many things too through your session on Classroom 2.0 Live and on Twitter. I look forward to our continued sharing. I am loving your Mixbook and I can't wait to see it develop over the year.

Thanks Paula! I love learning from you too, and I'm so excited that you showed me Mixbook. I think that this will be a great way documenting our year in Grade 1. I can't wait to add photographs and captions to the different pages as the year progresses. Thanks for inspiring me to try something new!
