Ms. Shields' 5th Grade Creek View Elementary Alpharetta, GA
Soon it will be August! The new year will be full of changes. Students will be setting their sights on Middle School and preparing themselves for greater responsibilities.
This year Ms. Moor & I will be sharing a class wiki called, One Curious Year. Here are some previous wikis. Take a look at our 2011 Wiki and our PUBLIC edmodo page or the 2010 Wiki
This is a workspace for student projects both collaborative and independent. Students have individual logins. It is open only to family members as viewers. The wiki is by invitation only for students and parents.
From Alberta, Canada - This is what we need more of to support student math achievement!

Creek View Elementary
We have a wonderful principal, Matt Rogers! He is an avid runner and supporter of fitness for boy and mind. He enjoys working with our dynamic community of parents, students and teachers. I'm proud to be part of this dynamic team!
Sparkle has retired from travel...
Sparkle has visited several students this fall and he looks forward to future excursions. It's true he doesn't travel light. His cage is a bit awkward to carry and he always packs his bedding, hay food and his own personal cheetah pattern tote. The tote was donated by his dear friend Callie. Sparkle has only good things to say about his time with Thea, Callie and Mary. They made him feel right at home. Now that he is in his golden years, an old man by rabbit standards, he no longer visits homes other than Ms. Shields'. It makes him to anxious. He feels insecure. I'm sure you can understand how he feels.
