On February 6, the Centre School had over 500 people at an appreciation ceremony for people who make a difference in our lives. Each student and staff member was asked to invite someone to school who had made a positive difference in their life. In the morning, Monte Selby worked with the K-4 students on songs and then actually wrote a song with our 5-12 students. The song was created to show appreciation to the people who make a positive difference in our lives.Here is a copy of the newspaper article about our incredible day.Here is a link to the song the students and Monte wrote.www.monteselby.com/GetThere.mp3Monte is an amazing performer, educator and person.

During the USA Conference I attended a session with great technology integration ideas. I really liked this one. Copy the text of the State of the Union Address and paste it Wordle. The words that President Obama used the most in his address will appear bigger than the others. Great visual concept of the speech. Next, I want to take the Republican's rebuttal and see how it compares.Here is the Rebublican rebuttal to the State of the Union Address in a Wordle. What a great idea for a class discussion!
