Our Increasing Skill Set

Shef has a new podcast, wherein he sings "Skol Vikings" and reads his script about making our awesome gingerbread house. You can hear the podcast by clicking here. It's just over one-minute long.

This time, I experimented with adding sound effects to the podcast, which was fun. Shef does everything in one take, so we're getting pretty efficient. I like knowing how to use GarageBand. And just think, if Shef's teacher hadn't suggested that we find a project that would support his literacy development, and if I hadn't decided to do a podcast exchange with the Bloomington peeps, and probably if I hadn't decided to do technology exploration during the blogging challenge, I wouldn't know.

Funny ole world.

There will probably be a Voice Stream about the gingerbread house coming up in the next couple of days. I also didn't know how to do that before. It's great being a life-long learner.

Fun. Luke's absolute favorite song is Skol Vikings but it has to be me helping him doing the clapping and arm waving on "fight, fight, fight, fight" and "V-I-K-I-N-G-S". And I have to do it at least 5 times. :)

I loved Shef's podcast and your sounds were awesome.

Tom, it's weird how kids love fight songs! Our kids love them all: Gophers, Vikes, Twins. I haven't taught them any Macalester cheers yet, though, because they're all inappropriate. ;)

And, thanks Judy!! I'm thinking of you today re: your tweets.
