Winter Olympics Update
Our class has been very excited about the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. We have read about the athletes and events, while watching the medal count rise. Since we practice our reading skills like comprehension and fluency, along with informational text, we thought this would be a perfect way to share our learning with you.
We found this fabulous little app called, Tellagami. It is free and allowed us to make an avatar while recording our voices. Please listen in and enjoy this Winter Olympics update!
Please tell us what you think about our video.
Can you recommend any other quality apps for us to try?
