Last week as we made the pancakes together, the students took pictures of each step and then wrote about what we had done using their iPads. We used Explain Everything, a new app to the students. Check their individual blogs on the right hand side to see each one’s creation.
Rebecca Baranowsky, an education student at the University of Regina, has made two videos recently…just for us! The students loved them, so I am sharing them here. Thanks, Rebecca!
First, a story about Harry and Horsie…
And then a video to help us learn to count by 2′s…
As part of our learning about the First Nations people, we attended a special First Nation storytelling and dancing event at Yara Centre. The video below shows one of the dancers that we watched doing a Fancy Shawl Dance. The students loved sitting on the “grass” and participating in this event.
This week, we helped out a class in Ohio who wanted to know what what people in other countries ate for lunch. We took pictures of our lunches and tweeted them to Ms Frazier’s class, who then put the pictures into their Voicethread.
We also used Twitter to pretend we were one of the characters in Little Red Riding Hood, and to tweet using that character’s “voice”. What would the wolf, or the huntsman, or the grandma say? Can you tell which character we were in the tweets below?
Ms. Lirenman’s class in Surrey, B.C. doesn’t get snow very often, so when they finally got some this week, they decided to take our snow clothes challenge. For first timers with snow clothes, we were impressed!
We’ve been working together in our classroom for 100 days. That calls for a celebration!
First, we thought about what we wondered about 100.
Then, we started on our list. One of our projects today was making a hat with 100 tassels. It sure takes a long time to count and attach 100 strips of paper…
We didn’t get to try all of our wonders yet, but we’ll keep working on them throughout the week!
