Celebrating Dr. Seuss while learning Story Elements at Northern Hills

The story below was provided by 3rd grade teachers at Northern Hills Elementary.

3rd grade students worked with the Media Specialist, Ms. Julia Cohlmia, to review story elements with Dr. Seuss books. After filling out the graphic organizer in small groups, they uploaded the photo into Seesaw and recorded a short summary of their findings. Parents really enjoyed getting to see and hear what their student was working on throughout the week. Click the link below to see an example.

Heartland Student Perspective of Canvas

The story below was submitted by Sarah, an 8th grade student at Heartland Middle School in Ms. Sharie Mitchell's 8th grade science class.

So far I have really liked Canvas, and I think many other students have liked it as well! It makes tests easier, and if you have missed a day or two of school your teachers can easily upload it and the students can easily access it. The site is well matted and it is easy to find what you need. Canvas has really helped me this year, and I think it has been a great advancement in technology for students.
