Winter is . . .

Our first graders created this "Winter is" poem by thinking about what winter means to them. They used KidPix to complete the sentence and add an illustration to complement their words. These drawings were exported and then uploaded to Voicethread and the students used the microphone to narrate their page.






Hooray for the USA

The students in first grade spent several weeks learning about the people and the symbols of the United States and what makes our country what it is today. They learned about the American Flag, the Statue of Liberty, the bald eagle, the Liberty Bell, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In computer class the students chose one of the things they learned about that they wanted to teach someone else about. They created these pictures in KidPix, I uploaded them to Voicethread and the students narrated them.





Signs of Spring

With spring upon us it was time to find out from the students how they knew that the seasons were changing. We talked about the signs that spring was soon to be here. Some of what they came up with is: birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, the sun is out more, it is getting warmer, and many more. I introduced Kidspiration to the students so they could create a mind-map with spring as the central idea.
