I just added a few new things to our classroom Weebly. Last week the students wrote about the beginning, middle, and end of one of their books from their book baskets and put it in an app called Story Kit. This week we did a Popplet of our needs and wants. Just click on the picture below to get to our classroom Weebly and check out the cool things that we have been doing with our iPads.
I just found this really fun game called, Word Shake. It is a lot like Boggle. You have 3 minutes to see how many points you can get for making words. The longer your word, the more points you get. Just click on the picture below to play. Leave us a comment here and let us know how many points you get.
Yesterday we had our writing celebration with Mrs. Laidlaw’s and Mrs. Taylor’s classes. We meet in the Media Center and were put into groups of 3, one student from each class. We took turns reading our reviews to each other. When we were done, we got to enjoy some pretzels.
Today we read The Leprechaun’s Gold for our book treasure book. The story centers around the King’s contest to choose the best harpist in the land. Young Tom is sure he can beat out Old Pat. The lad goes as far as to break the poor old fellow’s harp string on their journey to the event. It seems that all is lost until Pat stops to answer a leprechaun’s cry for help. Your child should have brought home their envelope, retelling sheet, and a shamrock to put in their treasure chest. Retelling sheets are due back to school by next Tuesday. Don’t forget, you can do your retelling right here. Just click on comments, below this post and leave your retelling. If you choose to do it on here, just write ‘blog” on your retelling sheet and turn it in by Tuesday. If you would like to listen to the story again, just click on the title below.
