Chatter Pix & The Paper Bag Princess

The students really enjoyed reading The Paper Bag Princess for our Souvenir Bit book a few weeks ago. We used a new app called Chatter Pix to personify a character from the story. Their job was to draw their favorite character in the story and then take a picture of it using the camera in the app. They then completed the steps in the app to record their voice. Some of the students also took advantage of the fun tools provided by the app. You can click on links below to hear the students speaking as their favorite characters (Princess Elizabeth, Prince Ronald, and the Dragon).

The Chatter Pix app is created by the Duck Duck Moose company. I highly recommend their apps! :-)

Maps

Last week we started a new unit in social studies. We will be learning about maps and our environment. We started a padlet as we shared our prior knowledge of maps. We will be revisiting it at the end of our unit. We ran out of time and not everyone was able to add to the padlet. I told the students I would be sharing it on the blog if they had something else to add:-) **You may need to scroll to view full padlet. You can also visit here.

We’ve had some fun stuff happening in class for March is Reading Month. We started with a Facetime session with 1st graders over at neighboring Edison Elementary for World Read Aloud Day. Their teacher, Mrs. Cabe read a story to 1st graders from both classes! It was fun to interact with another Fraser classroom.
