Today we used the puppets we made last week to make up stories that we shared with our friends.
This week we created our first avatars using the iPad app Telegami. We used those avatars to represent us as we showed off our reading fluency. You can hear us (and see our chosen avatars) on our blogs.
We also talked about the comments we have received and about what makes a good comment. Then, we drew names and made a secret comment for a friend in our classroom. On Monday, we will get to read the comments that others made for us. Although a few of the secret friends did leak out, we tried really hard to not let anyone see what we were doing.
Putting on snow clothes is a time-consuming process, but my students have been getting faster. Today we made a video to show how fast we are.
How fast are YOU? We’d love for you to show us. You can post your video on this Padlet so that everyone can see how fast you are, too!
For the past few weeks, the students have been researching and writing about an animal of their choice as part of a unit of Inquiry. You can find each child’s final project on their blog. Below is one example to tempt you to read further.
What if you had three Christmas trees and a lot of decorations? How would YOU divide the ornaments between the trees? The students all solved this problem in different ways. Check their blogs for their solutions. (We were inspired to solve this problem by other classes talking about this on Twitter.)
Last Tuesday, following the example of some students in Chicago, we posted some of our favourite books on a Padlet to encourage others to read what we were reading. You can see all of our books by clicking on this link. Some of the books are in the image below.
What are YOU reading? We’d love to know.
