International Night at Cumberland Trace Elementary Clips

Back in December of 2011, Cumberland Trace had their second International Night.  We had food from various countries and performers.  Here are a couple of videos from that night.   Check them out!  The first video is a dance that the Burmese performed.

Symbaloo-Visual Bookmarks

Symbaloo is a website that allows you to create visual bookmarks on your home screen.  For example, students can click on the Brain Pop symbol and they are on the website in seconds.  This website saves so much time for my students.  Last year, I had some students that struggled with typing and it would take them ten minutes to type an address.  This website is FREE too!
