Teacher Jennifer Cloutier makes learning fun. Shown above, her second-graders are using a “Qball,” which is a wireless, throwable microphone. Cloutier used this innovative ball when asking questions about characters in the “Asking and Answering Questions” unit. The children tossed the ball to someone of their choice with a hand up within a close range, calling out their name to answer the question. Cloutier is always thinking of new ways to keep the students interactive and engaged in learning.
