We started exploring Wixie for the first time today. Students were challenged to create their own page in a class book inspired by The Shape of Things by Dayle Ann Dodds. I'm impressed with our first day's accomplishments and excited for the final product! @SullyES_LCPS pic.twitter.com/V1VgrGVygZ— Leisa Mackauer (@Mackauer1st) January 29, 2021
