College Bound

Last week I had the opportunity to work in Mrs. Yoder's 1st grade class. The students are using their iPods and creating pictures using the Doodle Buddy app to focus on being "College Bound." (Being college bound is a mind set that college is in their future and they need to work towards it.) Mrs. Yoder's sponsor school is Mount Vernon Nazarene University (MVNU), and it just so happens that the MVNU girls' volleyball team will be playing St. Francis in the near future. The students will also have the opportunity to go to the game; so the whole experience will be exciting for them. I was excited to be able to help them in this activity. They all took a picture of a volleyball and created some spirit posters to help encourage the Mt. Vernon Cougars towards a win. I helped them with the devices while Mrs. Yoder taught the lesson on how to use Doodle Buddy. They were extremely excited and some were even able to make multiple pictures. I hope to be able to continue participating in classrooms like I did in this experience.

Here are a couple videos to show the experience:
