Super second graders are spectacular at writing poems!

After reading one of my favorite stories this week, Dex, The Heart of a Hero, we decided to transform our second graders into "Super Poets." Each of the student first posed for their picture and then transferred that picture into an an app called PopDoT HD. Next, students then transformed their picture so that it look like something out of a comic strip. Finally, students created a poem to go along with their picture about if they were in charge of the world.

Water Cycle Projects

All projects are finished and decorating the walls of Holiday Park. Thank you for assisting your child with this project. Students always seem to struggle with this concept, so I thought this project might assist their comprehension of the water cycle.

Three digital stories completed!!

Three Little Pigs are in the recording stage

Rolling out the red carpet!!

When all four videos are finished, I would like to celebrate by rolling out the red carpet for our stars. I plan to have opening day for the videos and would like each of you to attend. More details will be coming your way.
