“It’s Friday, Friday!” (OK, that’s all!)
It’s actually Foto Friday. Having not posted photos for nine days now, I have been going through photography withdrawals. I fell in love with taking pictures over the summer as I participated with many wonderful educators in the June-July-August Project (My post about #JJAProject)
Now I’ve decided to post a photo each Friday showing something from my week, most likely school-related since that’s what keeps my head spinning and my shutter snapping these days.
Here today is a photo of an old swingset, edited on BeFunky.com. It’s an old wooden swingset with lichen growing on the seats. Life can be found in many places.
I am so excited that my science students are joining me in making a life science photography portfolio this year.
Today is our first day. Third period we will walk to a nature trail in town, geotag a special spot we will “adopt”, take photos, make sketches, press leaves, identify species. Then throughout the various seasons, we will visit our special spot noting changes.
Can’t wait to get started!
Does anyone else want to join a Foto Friday Challenge with me?
P.S. I have just been looking around and there are many Photo Friday and Foto Friday challenges (Here’s one for dog lovers). Maybe some teachers would like to start a new one!
Saturday followup…Thanks, Sheri (@grammasheri), for an excellent post about a new #TFotoFri hashtag for teachers. Next week, my Friday post will be entitled, “Ah, Friday…” too.
Now we also have a Flickr group to collect all the participants’ Friday photos. It is at http://Flickr.com/groups/TFotoFri
