More cool websites!

Kerpoof: This website turns your kids into true cartoon artists. Doodle, create a movie, build your own greeting card or draw a comic strip using predesigned elements in this free multimedia software.

Jigsaw Planet: Create jigsaw puzzles. Fun!

Google Books: Google Books is a good resource today. Soon it will be phenomenal. As their collection grows Google Books will become an invaluable classroom tool. That said, even now you can:
* word search books and then cross reference to your very own paper copy.
* read books on line.
* create your own personal library.
* read a section of a book you want to buy.
* find a quote from a book you read years ago.

Teachers Domain: Teachers' Domain is an extensive library of free digital media resources produced by public television, designed for classroom use and professional development.

Red Ribbon Week at Sutton

Red Ribbon Week was such an AWESOME week at Sutton! Thanks to everyone for making it such a special week for our kids! Below are two videos of the week. The first is a video made specially for our kids from members of the Key Club at Owensboro High School.

Here is a show of our kids throughout the week!

A parent stopped me today and we discussed how awesome our school system is. She reminded me of the OPS Fine Arts Festival a few years back. It was a special moment for me as I was able to perform with the kids and my nephew was in the performance as well. Check out a good memory...

What kids can do....amazing!

As most of you know I am an extreme planner when it comes to doing what's best for our kids and for Sutton School. But I often scratch my head when I think about how to transform what we do to prepare our kids for the competitive global world and to get technology in the hands of our kids. Not because I don't think our kids are ready for it but because many of our teachers are behind the curve from what our kids are already doing with the technology. Take a look at a couple of things I found on Youtube that shows just a glimpse of the creative opportunities that exist for our children. The musician in this video is the same person.

Here the young musician is again.

As we prepare our children, we must realize that we need to provide them with the opportunity to be creative as well as the tools to bring this creativity alive. Our kids are ready to move into an age that we can only imagine. Let's get started!
