Kindergarten
Our Kindergarten friends began the year practicing their fine motor skills while crafting self-portraits using Kidpix. The pictures were exported as jpegs and uploaded to voicethread so the students could introduce themselves. The children did a great job of self-editing; when their recording was previewed, they decided if it was good enough to save. They knew if they needed to be louder, slower or more clear. Some were nervous to speak into the microphone but became confident with each try.


Knights and Castles Project

The students in both kindergarten classes are doing a research project about knights, castles and dragons. They have been reading several books, learning relevant vocabulary, finding interesting facts and doing dramatic play. In the lab they created a picture about something they learned during this unit. Each picture comes with a short sentence about the illustration. These pictures, done in KidPix, were uploaded to Voicethread and the students did the narration, once again practicing their public speaking.

Signs of Spring

The signs of spring are everywhere! The kindergarten kids had a good time finding many of their favorite signs using Kidspiration. This involved listening, following directions, clicking and dragging, and using the picture menu.
