Throughout this summer class I learned a lot about exercising and dieting. It was hard at times and a lot easier than I anticipated at other times. I know people always look for a specific answers on how to lose weight and I believe there is no right answer. It is important for every single person to get out there and research on their own in order to find what works best for them. I did not choose just one diet and one exercise, I mixed and matched a bunch until I found what was right for me. Below is the poster I created that I want to hang on my wall to continue my motivation for becoming a better me.
Not only is this post about journey becoming healthy, I want to talk about the website I used to make the poster. I think it is important to use as much creativity as possible and http://www.Piktochart.com gives you that ability. I had no idea there were these kinds of websites out there that offered so much for free. It really amazes me. I am really excited I got to use this tool because I am student teaching in the fall and I will be able to implement this in my lesson plans.
I loved that there was so much you could do for free and it made me want to upgrade to be able to use all of the features, but I did not considering I am a poor college student. I think every school should be a part of some sort of designer tool online that they either pay for or find for free and incorporate it into the classrooms. I am not very creative and being able to use all of the features this website had to offer I was able to become a bit more creative than I usually am. I really liked that about this.
I believe visual images help some students learn better than others. I would never want to take that opportunity away from a child. If they wanted to use a chart to explain their reasoning I would openly accept that and support it. I want my students to be able to learn in the easiest way possible for them as individuals. I plan to use websites such as this one in my classroom one day. I can’t wait to see the creativity my class will have to offer!
