During our Tech Talk with Ms. Miller we learned about vitural realiry using the Quiver App! Here the 3D augmented reality took our coloring to the next level- bringing the picture to life! Check out this free app over winter break! Print off the free coloring pages- use markers, crayons, or even color pencils to color in your pages! Then scan the page using the app! And experience the app! The kiddos abosoultly loved it! During indoor recess the next day they created even more!
This week we continued learning about time! We have been discussing what an hour is- and a half hour! We made connections about what lasts about an hour or a half hour, too! On Thursday we worked in small groups and planned a Holiday party! We had some guidelines we had to follow! First every team had to factor in 30 minutes at the end of the party to clean up! Also, we wouldn't be able to do all the activities on the list! We encountered some obstacles but with perseverance we were able to overcome those barriers!
Today we ended our first round of enrichment clusters! Next week we will be having a school wide assembly celebrating our invested time and learning! We can't wait until round 2!!!
Take a peek of some of us in Artist Academy!
This week we have been learning about how to read with EXPRESSION! Like a news reporter! Here is a small video clip of some of us in action!
This week in class we had the chance to BRAINSTORM many ideas as an informational writer! We had to think back to when we were all in Kindergarten last year. We remembered when we wrote HOW TO books! We also remembered how we had to know a lot about our topics because we each were an expert on it!
We listed many of our ideas: all about riding a bike, or walking a dog, or caring for a kitten! We also reviewed the importance of how to teach our reader how to do just that!
Check back in next week for some more news!
What we're learning in first grade. Students are also making comments in class! At home add to the posts, too.
