Computer Critters


Meet the newest members of the Sol family. These curious little creatures give the term "computer mouse" a whole new meaning! (Actually they are Dumbo rats, but you get the picture.)

Gee, I wonder if they will log in to Class Connnect too?

Meet Buddy...

and Mikey!

Do not tell Vamp.

Parting Words


Welp, this is it! Tomorrow is the last day of school. I had so much fun teaching Computer Literacy and Image Design this year. What an amazing group of kids! Thanks for laughing at my jokes in Class Connect, submitting AWESOME projects, sending me thoughtful kmails, and working your tails off this semester.

I have a back-log of student projects that I want to share, so check back over the summer and leave comments for your virtual buddies.

Enjoy your summer, learn as much as you can, and always stay true to yourself.

Your fans,
Mrs. Sol & Vamp

June Book Trailer: Darth Vader and Son


"What if Darth Vader took an active role in raising his son? What if “Luke, I am your father” was just a stern admonishment from an annoyed dad? In this hilarious and sweet comic reimagining, Darth Vader is a dad like any other—except with all the baggage of being the Dark Lord of the Sith." - Chronicle Books

Here's the book trailer for Darth Vader and Son and a few other surprises too!

I happened across this book at the store and thought it was a keeper. I love the illustrations and my kids think the whole concept is HILARIOUS. Great gift for dad's birthday or Father's Day!

PE + Technology x Creativity = ❤


For an end of the year PE extra credit assignment, I asked students to create a project which tells a little about the course and what they learned. I thought it might be fun to incorporate cool technology sites with a PE and exercise theme. Here is the info sheet and project choices...

Students have until Friday to submit projects, but here are a few I have received so far.
