St. Patrick's Day, Easter & More

Here are a few of the things we have been busy doing and learning.
After learning a bit about St. Patrick's Day we went on a shamrock hunt in our front lawn.  Lots of green found but no 4 leaf clovers.
 I did a wee bit of face painting on my students' cheeks.
Mrs. Bookman played a jig and we danced in class.

Writing a Paragraph and Digital Tools

Get your QR Code readers ready to listen to each student read their paragraphs.  After studying text features the students turned a topic "triple whammy sentence" into a paragraph.  Students added text features to their writing and made a funny video of themselves reading their paragraph. 
The apps we used were Chatter Pix and Pic Collage.
