There are still some great posts coming in from previous weeks too. Serge Galligani’s class in France made a terrific video about their school day. Try leaving them a comment using Google Translator if you don’t speak French.
Gabby wrote an excellent piece about celebrations that included multiple pictures and some fun polls.
Task 3: Holiday Craft
Some people enjoy making a craft for special holidays and seasons.
This task involves creating something and then adding a photo of it to a blog post with a description. Or you could even make a video tutorial for your readers!
If you find inspiration from a website, be sure to include the link in your post.
Origami Club has a list of origami (paper folding) objects you can make for a variety of holidays.
DLTK has lots of ideas sorted into different holidays.
PBS Parents shares a range of craft ideas for different celebrations.
Easy Peasy and Fun have lots of holiday craft ideas. For example, there are many Easter ideas. Use the drop-down menu at the top of the site to explore other holidays or adapt the ideas for your own holidays!
Rhiann made a fantastic video to share a craft idea.
Kaylie made a candle and explained how she did it. She also including the link to the site she used.
Music is something that can connect people, no matter where you live, what language you speak, or how old you are.
This week, we’re going to discuss all aspects of music — what we like, what we don’t like, how we use music, and using music legally.
Week Five Recap
There were so many great posts submitted again by classes and students.
You can find them all here (or click on the week 5 box on the sidebar).
Let’s take a look at just some of the fantastic work we spotted last week:
Mrs. Ruffing is a teacher in the US who is also volunteering as a commenter. She has written some great posts like this one to share her commenting experiences with her students. She also wrote a post about netball. If you know about netball, please comment!
Some of Mrs. Schmidt’s students (Pennsylvania USA) made a survey about school including Sophia and Julia
Ready, Set, Blog is a class in Melbourne, Australia with student blogs. I like the way the teacher wrote a post with some recommendations of student blogs to visit. For example, Oliver made a voice recording.
Allie in New Zealand also made a Google Form with lots of great questions about school. I like the way she included the links to the blogs of 3 other students she’s connected with.
There are so many different types of music enjoyed around the world.
As Greek Philosopher Plato apparently said,
Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.
Music and the Law
Remember back in week 3 we discussed how you can’t just use any image that you find online? Well, the same applies for music.
Most music is protected by copyright. So you can’t use it for your own digital projects without permission or paying for a special license.
Listening to music
Not so long ago, when people wanted to listen to their favorite song, they had to wait until it came on the radio or buy the CD/cassette/record.
Now there are choices but it’s important to know what you can and can’t do with music.
Using music in projects
Normally, you can’t just use any music you like in something you’re creating — like a video.
However, in most countries, you are allowed to copy music to add to a video if:
a) it’s for educational purposes and
b) you’re not sharing your video publicly (or selling it!)
So, if you have a public blog, you aren’t allowed to put a video on there that you made with copyright music. And you couldn’t show your video at a public event. However, it’s okay if you’re just showing the video to your teachers and parents.
Hopefully, you do want to share your work with a public audience. That’s what this challenge is all about! Don’t worry. You can still use music. I’ll share some options below.
Note: This is the case in Australia and the US but if you live in another country you may need to check your own guidelines.
Paying for music
There are popular sites and apps where you can pay to download music legally — for example, Apple Music, Google Play Music, and Spotify.
You can listen to your downloaded music yourself, but can’t upload it to your blog or to a video or other project you’re working on.
You also can’t use it publicly (e.g. at a school event, store, or public event).
It’s fine to stream music online on sites like YouTube (although remember, YouTube is 13+) but it’s not usually legal to download the audio from a YouTube video as explained in this article.
Also, streaming music in this way is meant for personal use — not for a public broadcast. As Spotify says,
…it’s not possible to use Spotify in public places (such as bars, restaurants, stores, schools, etc.). You may only make personal, non-commercial, entertainment use of the content.
Most streaming services are similar.
Embedding a video from a site like YouTube or Vimeo into your blog is usually allowed.
This week you can choose from a list of 8 ideas to create a post about music. Complete at least two!
Because the topic of music is a new one for the Student Blogging Challenge, we don’t have many examples to share this week.
8 Prompts For Your Post About Music
Choose one or more of these ideas to create a post about music. Or, you might have your own idea!
1) Create a survey about music (opinions)
Create a poll to survey your readers (Google Forms is a good way to do this or you could use a tool like Crowd Signal).
Alternatively, you could write some questions that you’d like readers to answer in a comment.
Your survey questions could be about:
Your favourite music genre
Your favourite artists or groups
Would you rather? (e.g. Would you rather Ariana Grande or Billie Eilish? Would you rather classical music or rap?)
Idea: When your survey is completed, you could share a summary of your findings. I love a tool called Beam for making simple charts.
2) Create a quiz about music (facts)
Quiz your readers about anything music related. Perhaps your quiz could include questions like:
Facts about artists (year they were born, or first number one hit)
Facts about instruments
Questions about a certain genre or period of time (e.g. 1980s music)
Google Forms is great for making quizzes but please make sure it’s public. You could also make a Google Slides presentation. The question could be on one slide, and the answer on the next (or all the answers could be at the end of the presentation).
Remember to please make sure any Google Forms/Slides/Docs etc. are public.
3) Tell us about an instrument
Do you have a favorite instrument? Or perhaps there is an instrument that fascinates you and you might like to do some research and write a post about it.
You might include things like:
Construction or appearance
Technique or how to play it
Famous works or artists
Classification or family of instruments (e.g. strings, or percussion)
Don’t forget to include an image or embed a video.
Example: Ash wrote a post about the ukelele for her free choice post in week 4.
4) Research a famous artist or group
Find out more about a singer, songwriter, musician, or group. This might be someone who is popular now or performed long ago.
Share some interesting facts in a post.
Bring your research to life with an image or video.
5) Make a playlist
Music lovers have enjoyed making their own playlists for years. A playlist can celebrate a certain artist, genre, or mood.
Write a blog post that includes a playlist of your favorite songs. Don’t forget to explain why you like each song and why it’s part of your playlist.
Example: Principal Meredith Akers made a playlist by embedding YouTube videos into her blog post.
6) Discuss music and the law
Many people don’t realize that by using music illegally, you are putting artists at a disadvantage because they are not getting paid for their work.
Do some research and write an article about the downsides of using music illegally.
Alternatively, you might like to write a post about do’s and don’ts of using music legally. You might be able to teach others who aren’t aware that there are rules we need to abide by.
7) Guess the artist, song, or instrument
Guessing games are fun!
Give your readers some clues as they scroll down the page and have them guess the artist, song, or instrument.
You could put each clue on a slide of a Google Slides presentation if you prefer (just remember to make sure your Slides presentation is public).
Invite your readers to put their guesses in a comment.
8) Make some music
We don’t just have to talk about music or listen to others’ music. Why not make your own. There are lots of apps and websites where you can make music.
Micah from Panama wrote about a bird called the rufous-crested coquette.
Miss Blessing’s young students in Vermont USA have been writing some great poems. Here are some examples from Bunny Jumper, Bee Buzzer, and Lead Dog. I love the way they include photos of their drawings.
Mackenna is a third grader who invites you to sprinkle kindness.
Sophia from Pennsylvania, USA is rhinestone crazy and is happy to answer questions about rhinestones.
Mrs. Yollis and her 3rd grade students continue to be STUBC role models. I encourage teachers to read this post about how Mrs. Yollis helped a student find an audience. Also, check out some of the excellent posts on the blog sidebar.
Write about your school day or make a slideshow or video to explain it.
You might include things like:
How do you get to school?
What is your timetable like? Do you have set subjects at certain times?
Do you have one teacher or many?
What time do you begin and end school?
Do you get to choose what you learn?
What technology do you have at school?
Remember to explain abbreviations you might use e.g. LOTE, STEM, or ELA
Example: Kayden wrote about her favorite school subjects
3) Do some research
Do a little bit of research for a new post.
Here are some ideas:
Research the history of your school and create an “About my school” page.
Research a famous person who attended your school.
How has schooling changed over the years? Interview parents or grandparents and ask questions about schooling. You could make a written interview, make a video, or make an audio recording (Anchor is a great tool for making audio recordings).
Find out more about someone at your school who you don’t talk to very much. Maybe you could interview a student who is older/younger than you. Or you might interview your cleaner, crossing supervisor, canteen worker etc.
Example: Farrah asked her parents about how school has changed.
4) What happens at break times?
Tell us what you do at break time or what’s popular at your school.
You might write about:
The food you eat at school. Do you take your own lunchbox or do you buy lunch? Include some photos if you can!
What do you do at break time? Are there any popular games, sports, or activities at your school?
What precautions do you have to take from the weather at break times? Hats? Sunscreen? Snowsuits? Is school ever canceled or do you ever have to stay inside?
Example: Van Anh explained how to play a traditional Vietnamese game.
5) Describe your school grounds
Tell us a bit about your school grounds. You could even draw a map, or make a slideshow or video that gives readers a tour of your school.
Is your school big or small?
What sort of play areas do you have? Playgrounds? Fields? Courts?
What special buildings do you have? A gym? A library?
Example: Mrs. Yollis class made this great school tour video when I worked on a projectwith her for International Dot Day.
6) Tell us about your special events
Does your school hold any special events? Maybe a fair or fete, a dress-up day, a fundraiser, camps or school trips?
Share the details in a post!
Example: Jueun wrote about a sports event held in his district.
7) Compare your school with another
Find a video, photo, or article to shows what school is like in a different part of the world.
Feel free to use the resources I added above.
Write about the similarities and differences as well as the questions you’re pondering.
Alternatively, if you’ve been to more than one more school you might be able to compare them in a post.
Example: Yuyang compared his school experiences in China and Senegal.
8) Share your opinions about school
No doubt you have some opinions about school and we’d like to hear them:
What’s your ideal school? You could even include a map of what it would look like.
Share your opinion on uniforms, school starting times, homework, recess, or another controversial issue.
What do you dream of doing once you finish school?
If you were principal for a week, what would you do?
If you have any other ideas, that’s great! Write about anything that relates to schooling around the world.
Examples: Fran wrote about his plans for when he finishes school while Van Anh shared her opinions on school uniforms.
When You’ve Published A Post, It’s Time To Visit
An important part of this topic is to find out about some other schools. You never know what you might learn or who you could connect with!
When you’ve finished your post, choose a couple of blogs to visit and leave a quality comment.
Remember to ask a question and check back to see if they replied to you (most platforms have a box to tick so you can get an email when there is a follow-up comment).
You will find the link to the week 5 participants’ posts on the sidebar of this blog on Tuesday.
It’s time to start the challenge! At this point, we are all veterans so I will post a shortened post of this first introductory week.
The actual post is quite long because there some reminders to go through. Click here to refer to the actual post. If you do, use the menu on the right-hand side of the SBC page to help you navigate the post (you might not see it if you’re reading this on a phone or tablet).
1. Kathleen Morris is the teacher who runs the Student Blogging Challenge from Australia.
2. So far we have nearly 800 individual students and 115 classes registered. Our participants represent 25 countries and 6 continents.
3. Week 1 tasks involve:
Making an avatar (and there are a few choices for extra avatar activities)
Creating or updating your About page
Making connections with other students
4. These are the steps you should take:
Week One Tasks
Most of us have completed these tasks, but if you did not, please do! If you would like to do these tasks again on your individual blogs, you may do so.
Stay Safe Online
Remember, as we’re sharing information about ourselves, we need to be internet savvy and avoid sharing too much information or personal details.
Never share your YAPPY online.
Task 1: Avatars
💡 There are many different avatar creation sites on the web:
Some tools allow you to save the avatar to your computer to then upload into your blog.
Others tools require you to take a screenshot of your avatar and save it as an image. Tip:This article shows how to take a screenshot on any device.
The Symbaloo below was compiled by Miss W (Sue Wyatt) to share links to sites where you can make an avatar. If you want to embed the Symbaloo on your own blog, click on the share icon at the bottom and copy the embed code.
Some of the tools listed require Flash to work. This means they won’t work on mobile devices and you might have to manually allow Flash if you’re using Chrome (instructions here).
Know any other avatar creation tools that aren’t on the Symbaloo? Leave a comment on this post.
Once you’ve made your avatar, you need to add it to your blog so it shows up when you comment. If you’re using Edublogs, check here for instructions.
Write an A-Z about yourself (e.g. I am an athletic and brave child who decided that saving the environment is one of my future goals). Check out how commenter Dinah created her A-Z About page especially for the Student Blogging Challenge a few years back.
Zaprina made a creative About post that’s an acronym of her own name. It includes paragraphs and colored text.
Mrs. Moore’s class wrote about their school and where they live on their class blog About page.
Huzzah! class included a map to show where they live.
Student Rajyashori wrote a creative interview script.
Year 5/6 Class at Westwood with Iford School made a Thinglink.
If you prefer a traditional style of writing, that’s fine too. Be sure to use paragraphs like in these examples from Grace and Madison.
Task 3: Visit other blogs. Start making connections!
One important aspect of blogging is commenting on other blogs.
Remember: The more you put into making connections during this challenge, the more you’ll get out!
There are two places you can find other participants’ blogs to visit: Student bloggers andpage for class bloggers. These are sorted by age. Student bloggers have hobbies listed so you hopefully can find someone who is not only a similar age to you but shares some of your interests.
We’re going to talk more about quality commenting next week but for now, you might want to remember:
Write your comment like a letter
Ask a question, make a connection, or give a compliment
Leave your blog URL so the blogger can also take a look at your blog
Don’t forget to approve your comments and politely reply to any comments as soon as you can!
There are a number of important reminders this week:
Thank you for all your comments for Alex! He is enjoying going through them. Alex is currently traveling so stay tuned for some answers in the future.
While the Student Blogging Challenge is coming to an end, we hope this is not the end of your blogging journey. We encourage you to keep blogging and connecting. If you need ideas for your blog posts, check out this recent post on The Edubloggerwith 50 prompts for students.
This was my first time running the Student Blogging Challenge and I’d like to thank everyone involved.
To Sue Wyatt…
A BIG thanks goes to Miss W (aka Sue Wyatt/Tasteach). Despite officially stepping down from running the challenge, Sue has played a hugely important role behind the scenes leading our commenting team and tirelessly visiting student blogs. We appreciate you, Sue!
To our commenters…
Another big thank you goes to our team of commenters who provided an authentic audience for our students and classes each week. Your comments made a big difference to the confidence and motivation of our bloggers. We hope you’ll return again as a commenter next year.
To our participants…
It has been fantastic to see such enthusiastic participation from our students and teachers across the world! I hope you’ve all learned something and made some connections.
The Student Blogging Challenge will start again in March 2019. Spread the word!
Part One: Write a post on your blog reflecting on your participation in the challenge.
How many weeks of the challenge did you participate in?
How many posts did you write in the ten week period?
How many comments did you receive from classmates, teachers, or other visitors?
Which post did you enjoy writing the most and why?
Which web tools did you use to show creativity on your blog?
What are your plans for your blog now? Will you keep posting?
Part 2: Ask a student/teacher/family member who might not have read your blog to do an audit. In the same post as part one, write about your auditing experience and their answers to the questions below.
Sit beside them while they navigate around your blog, record what you observe as they interact with your blog. When finished, ask them the following questions:
What were your first impressions of this blog?
What captured your attention?
What distracted you on the blog?
What suggestions can you give me to improve my blog?
Task 2: Evaluate The Challenge
Please complete our survey so we know what you enjoyed most about the challenge and what we could do to improve things in the future.
Other responses included birthdays, Eid, 4th of July, Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashanah, and Vaisakhi.
Tip: I made the chart above by entering the survey data into a free online tool called BEAM. It’s handy!
I invited a young coder who works for Edublogs to tell you about himself.
Alex is a 17-year-old school student in the United States.
He became vision impaired during 9th grade and lost most of his sight within 6 months.
Alex would LOVE you to comment on this post.
Over to Alex…
My name is Alex and I work as an accessibility developer and system administrator for Incsub which is the company behind Edublogs.
I started here at Incsub in May 2017 just days after I turned sixteen years old. I go to school in the day and work in the night. Although this job can be demanding, I always love the challenge it offers me day by day.
Alex’s role with the company
One of my main roles is to ensure all servers are running properly and respond when automation fails. Basically, I make sure we stay online.
I have helped with building infrastructure components and hosting. This means I built the parts that make our servers work to host our sites and helped with moving networks of websites to our servers.
My other working time is spent ensuring all Incsub sites (including Edublogs, CampusPress, and WPMU DEV) stay completely accessible to visually impaired users who rely on screen reading technology. A screen reader reads aloud the screen for people who can’t see or have other limitations.
Although some would see visual impairment as something you can’t live with, I assure you it’s very possible.
When I first started at Incsub I was hired to provide live chat support for WPMU DEV (a WordPress company that’s part of Incsub). That would later translate into becoming an accessibility developer. (Developer is another word for coder or programmer).
I study our company sites weekly to ensure they are accessible to everyone. The sad news is most sites are not. Just because I cannot see very much, I cannot use a lot of websites.
Now I get to work every day to ensure all sites are accessible within Incsub as everyone deserves the same opportunity for accessing the web.
How Alex learned to code
Learning to code wasn’t all that challenging. I first started learning basic HTML in the 7th grade. It just took off from there.
I found WordPress, signed up for web hosting, and started learning the ways of web development.
Moving on from accessibility development, I ran into system administration (upkeeping and configuring servers). I started learning with a company called Linux Academy. It’s an online program that allows you to learn Linux concepts, Cloud basics, Docker, and a whole host of other subjects.
I’m still very much in the practice stages but getting better every day. It’s cool what you can do with servers and don’t let your disability stand in your way.
A coding career
It is very important to me that the younger audiences get involved with coding. Without the younger generation, the sharing of information starts to drop. We need to keep this open sharing idea around. That way, everyone can learn from each other. It is truly the sharing of information that makes everyone smarter.
Getting the young involved in technology should increase the chance of them finding a really good paying job in the future, after graduation.
Leave a comment!
What are you curious about? Do you have any other questions for Alex? He’s very happy for you to leave a comment on Mrs. Morris’s week 9 post.
Below is a picture of Alex at work at a big WordCamp event last year (that’s a WordPress conference. WordPress is the software that powers 30% of the web including Edublogs and CampusPress). Alex is wearing the yellow and black hoodie.
Thanks all the people who were at the #a11y table of the #WCUS contributor day!
Especially @jdelia and Katherine White for testing Gutenberg for a full day.
And a big shoutout to Alex Stine, a 16 yr old web dev that helps with coding and testing with NVDA.
Many schools, teachers, and students participate in Hour of Code during Computer Science Education Week.
Why is computer science worth celebrating and promoting?
This video shows us how computer science is improving so many areas of our life.
What is Hour of Code?
Hour of Code is designed to introduce young people worldwide to the basics of coding and computer science through one-hour coding activities.
While these activities are promoted during Computer Science Education Week, they can be done at any time throughout the year.
Coding And Blogging
In the early days of the internet, if you wanted a blog or website, you had to know how to code it yourself.
Nowadays, most of the hard work is done for us and anyone can claim a website in minutes. For example, you can go to edublogs.org and sign up for a free blog. You don’t need to make your blog. All you need to worry about is the design and content.
Despite that fact that you don’t have to know how to code to be a part of the online community, there are many reasons why having some basic understandings of coding is helpful.
Being comfortable with coding can help you:
Customize aspects of your blog (like adding/editing embed code).
Troubleshoot (when something doesn’t look right, you can check the code for obvious errors).
Learn important skills like logical thinking, creativity, and communication.
Consider a wide range of career paths and explore coding in more depth.
Week Nine Tasks
This week there are three tasks to choose from. We strongly encourage you to complete the first task and leave a comment for Alex. He’d love to hear from you!
All tasks are suitable for student bloggers and I’ve offered ideas on how they can be adapted for classes.
Task 1: Leave A Comment For Alex
Go back and re-read the blurb above about Alex.
Alex certainly has an inspiring story to share. Despite being blind and a school student, he’s an outstanding self-taught coder and a highly valued member of staff at Edublogs.
For this task, try an Hour of Code activity and write a blog post about it.
The Hour of Code website is jam-packed with activities that you can try!
A good place to start is the ‘student-guided tutorials‘. Don’t worry if you haven’t tried coding before, you’ll be walked through what to do. It’s fun!
Be sure to filter your search results to find a suitable activity.
You’ll see the ages listed on the bar at the top from pre-readers up to Grades 9+.
Along the left-hand side, you can also filter activities based on what technology you have and what topics you’d like to explore.
When you’ve tried out an activity, write a blog post about it. Make sure you include the link to the activity (a screenshot would be awesome too!). Review the activity. Tell your readers what you learned and whether you recommend it to others.
Task 3: Try Some Code On Your Blog
While you’re creating a post, you’ll notice that there is a visual editor and text editor.
Switching between the two is easy but we mostly write our blog posts using the visual editor. It’s based on a ‘what you see is what you get’ framework (just like programs like Microsoft Word or Google Docs).
Unlike the visual editor, the text editor requires you to add any formatting such as italics, bold, links, and spacing manually using HTML (although there are some shortcut buttons you can use).
HTML is a computer language that stands for Hypertext Markup Language. It’s the standard language for creating web pages.
This activity involves trying some HTML by writing the code in the text editor. You can also use HTML in comments. When you’ve had a go at trying HTML, write a blog post about it and tell everyone how you went. Was it easy/hard? Did you learn anything new?
The instructions below show you how to use bold, italics, and add a link.
Remember, coding is about troubleshooting. So if something doesn’t work, take a closer look at your code. Maybe you’ve added a space or missed a symbol.
Too easy? More advanced coders can look up the HTML for different functions like headings, lists (bullet points), color, horizontal rule (line), and more. There are a LOT of guides to learning HTML online. You might even make your own cheat sheet and publish it for others!
Some people have put a link to a Google Doc/Form/Slide presentation in their post BUT it can’t be viewed without logging in.This resource shows you how to make your Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms public.
Do your posts have images? Images make posts much more shareable and they stand out a lot more on our Flipboard magazine. Remember, you can’t just use any image you find online in your blog posts. Re-read the information in the week 3 postto find out free and easy options for images you can use.
Time to begin this week’s topic…
Celebrations And Festivities
We have a diverse group taking part in the Student Blogging Challenge with lots of different cultural backgrounds represented.
Around the world, people celebrate different holidays and festivals. As we learned in week five, there are many benefits to learning about similarities and differences.
It can be fun to tell people about our own traditions while hearing about others!
Want to learn a bit more about just some of the holidays that are celebrated around the world? This video might help.
This week there are five tasks to choose from that explore holidays, celebrations, and festivities.
Our graphic summarises the tasks and I will explain each task in more detail below.
Task 1: Family Celebrations
Think of all the holidays, festivals, or celebrations that are important to your family. Write a blog post about this. Don’t forget the essentials of a great post!
You could make a list of your family’s celebrations with a short description for each one, or
You could choose one celebration to explain in more detail.
Don’t forget to include lots of information about your holiday so your readers can get a clear understanding of this special day/season.
You could include things like:
The time of year/date it’s celebrated.
What you do to celebrate? Are there special costumes, decorations, music, lights, food, prayers etc?
Do people give each other gifts?
Who is involved in the celebration? Do you visit other people or host family and friends?
What special memories do you have?
You might even like to do some research into the origins of your holiday.
Task 2: Photo Spark
Often, holidays and celebrations include different decorations, food, costumes, or other objects. Think of a celebration that’s important in your family and share at least two photos of something that represents that holiday. Write a reflection to give readers an idea of the significance of this object. Don’t forget the essentials of a great post!
Your house or classroom isn’t the only place you can decorate for the holidays, why not decorate your blog?
Alethea Vazquez is a wonderful teacher who is a commenter and a past STUBC participant. She has been very busy helping us with this task.
Head to Mrs. Vazquez’s “Christmas Fun” blog to get lots of ideas for themes, backgrounds, widgets, countdowns, music, puzzles and more!
Tip: Decorating your blog is fun but make sure your visitors can still read your posts amongst all the colour and action.
If you decorate your blog, you might want to write a post about it telling others what you did. You can then submit your post in the Google Form below.
Task 4: Holiday Craft
The holiday season can be a great time to make some craft!
Create something and then add a photo of it to a blog post with a description. Or you could even make a video tutorial for your readers! Don’t forget the essentials of a great post! If you find inspiration from a website, be sure to include the link in your post.
Origami Club has a list of origami (paper folding) objects you can make with a Christmas theme. There is origami for other holidays too.
DLTK has lots of ideas sorted into different holidays.
PBS Parents shares a range of craft ideas for different celebrations.
Once you try out at least two sites, write a blog post about it and let others know whether you recommend it. You should take a screenshot of the site and include the link.Don’t forget the essentials of a great post! There are lots of fun websites online where you can play games, create things, and get in the holiday spirit!
Here are some examples of sites. If you know some good sites, please leave a comment and let us know!
Magnetic Poetry — This is where you put words together to make a poem. It uses Google Drawings or Slides.
