My Morning Routine:
The True Diary of a Workaholic, Trying-to-have-it-all English Teacher
I have to admit...I’ve watched my fair share of “morning routine” videos on YouTube. They crack me up: so many of the teenage girls making them could be my students and the things the YouTubers include in the videos are both endearing and totally random!
I certainly don’t have it all together when it comes to my morning routine. Actually, I’d hesitate to even call it a routine, but the masses called for my TRUTH and my truth I shall share! And to do so, I’ve enlisted the help of Adobe Spark.
Adobe Spark Pages: For Teachers
The videos of these morning routine videos are gorgeous. I did not have the time or even the knowhow to create one of these, but what I do know how to do is create a gorgeous Adobe Spark Page. Take a look at my morning routine page here!
Nice, isn’t it? There are so many things I enjoy about pages: primarily, I love the simplicity of the technology and the beauty of the design. I did no coding, minimal font choosing, and was just relieved to just insert my pictures and go.
I’ve used Adobe Spark pages for a few other situations: my family Christmas card and a webquest for gaining background knowledge before reading the novel In the Time of the Butterflies. My next project? I plan to try using Spark Pages to create virtual field trips!
Adobe Spark Pages: For Students
As you can imagine, Spark Pages has amazing potential for student learning and publishing in the classroom. With pages, students could do so many things:
Publish a photo essay
Create a character profile
Create a mock website for a business/product
Create an introduction of themselves
Present research on virtually any topic
