Pirate 101

Before we set sail on the open seas, we must get to know who our shipmates are. During discussions and conference calls, we will be interacting with one another. Just as Dave Burgess spends the First Three Days of School creating a safe, fun environment, we want to do the same. This week, we will be focusing on the first day of school, and introducing ourselves.

Play-Doh Introduction Activity

  1. Using Play-Doh, create something that represents YOU. Use your imagination! What best describes you in the classroom, out of the classroom, or both?
  2. Once you have fashioned your masterpiece, please share it with everyone! Take a picture and explain your creation in the caption, OR take a 30 second video of yourself. There are several options to share:
    1. Post to Communities of Practice (Instructions)
    2. Share your video or picture via Instagram, Twitter, and/or Facebook using #naaereads and #tlap. (make sure you hashtag with these two or we won't be able to find it)

Katie and the NAAE interns have provided examples in each media platform for you. We look forward to getting to know each of you!
