Today I’m linking up with Technology Tailgate’s Techie Tuesday and Holly’s new Tried It Tuesday to share how I recently introduced Padlet during Daily 5.
It’s been a goal of mine to get my students using their vocabulary words more throughout the week, especially during their Work on Writing center. Each week my students use this graphic organizer to choose their own interesting, unknown words from their Raz Kids books. (You’re welcome to grab it for free along with the bookmarks if you haven’t already.)
Then they type the words and their definitions into Padlet so they have their own personal word wall to reference during Work on Writing. Here is a screen shot of one student's word wall.
Padlet has many fun choices for backgrounds and there’s even an option to add a photo, file, or URL to each word, which we haven’t tried yet. We’ve only been using it for a week now, and I can’t wait for my students to build up their word walls so they have lots of great words to use during Work on Writing.
