Room 105 News

January 31, 2016


I cannot believe that tomorrow is already February. The weather has been kind to us the last few days and no snow days means we are still on target to finish the year on time. This year is flying and we are learning - Monday means we have been in school 100 days!

Technology Fun in Grade 1

Sharing Information

Mrs. Ivy Nelson (Miss Ivy, as the students affectionately call her) came to share more about the app My Story that we have access to on our iPads. We took the opportunity to practice making a book and then used it to share informative writing about Martin Luther King, Jr. After that, we worked with a different, but similar app called Story Creator to create adjective books. Both activities were a ton of fun!
