Awhile back, I was reading a post from this blog where the writer referred to smart devices an “iWhatever.” I thought that was rather clever and have taken to using it with my kiddos the past two school years. “Put your iWhatevers away.” “You can use you iWhatevers IF you have earbuds. You may NOT share with a friend.” “Finish this assignment and you can spend the last five minutes on your iWhatever.” They now ask, “Can we use our iWhatevers?” I love that–aside from the fact that it should be “MAY we use our iWhatevers.” Thanks for letting me high-jack your clever verbage (without your knowledge or permission.), El Commodore and Majesty. It’s about the only thing my students find cool about me.
In keeping with the iWhatever, below is a photographic compendium of iWhatever technological output. From our house to yours.
***THIS JUST IN*** Victoria has e-mailed me from school to say that we CANNOT name the little, male kitten Eddie. She and Thad FINALLY agreed on the name (her suggestion even), but it was not to be. Her reasoning (after telling her friends the names I’m assuming) is that Bella and Eddie will elicit the whole Bella/Edward/Twilight thing. She is vehemently opposed to the faintest hint of such. She has come up with a new list: Leo, Oliver, and Toby. Toby being the likely candidate as it was suggested by Thad. Oh my.
