One of the first grade classes used Doozla this week to make "I am thankful for..." pictures. This project puts a techie spin on the traditional trace-your-hand-to-make-a-turkey project. They turned out well!
Also in first grade this week, we played an alternate version of "Name that Number" using the computers. The children each wrote a target number at the top of their computer screen (using Doozla), and when the bell rang in the lab they were asked to travel to another computer in the room and write a number sentence that equaled the target number (i.e. if the target number was 15, a child could write 10 plus 5, etc.). The bell rang numerous times during the period, so by the end of class each student's computer had a smattering of number sentences containing several numbers and various operations. I was proud of their hard work and creativity!
Many of the second graders finished up their nonfiction picture annotations this week. Have a look at the cool work they did to teach an audience what they know about their topic of choice.
We worked very hard to wrap up our Vokis this week in third grade. If you haven't seen them, be sure to run your mouse over the 3rd grade link above and find your child's class.
