Here's my September Currently. Be sure link up here.
I also wanted to share an amazing website I used with my fourth graders last week, which they absolutely LOVED. Build Your Wild Self is a site that allows students to create an avatar called their “Wild Self.” Students begin by choosing parts for their normal selves and then add animal parts to make themselves wild. We used this to create fun desktop backgrounds on each of my students’ individual laptops. I did this activity mainly for fun, but also to help us manage our laptops and make sure students are logging in to their own laptop (and not someone else's by mistake).
This site could also be used during an animal unit, as a fun writing prompt, after reading "Where the Wild Things Are," or just for fun. The avatars can be printed, pasted into another document, emailed to someone, or used as a desktop background. This could be adapted for children of all grade levels. I used it successfully with my first graders last year as well.
