First Grade Pigs and Wolves

First graders in Mrs. Mitchell’s and Mrs. Glowczynski’s classes read the Three Little Pigs. The teachers had students create adorable pigs and wolves. Then, we brought them to life using ChatterPix! The project challenged their Children’s Engineering skills as they created their characters, their writing skills as they wrote their scripts, and their oral language skills as they recorded their writing. Take a listen below!

Batty Books

batbook1

Students in Second grade reading classes created Bat Books after reading and researching bats. They used the app Book Creator.  This app allowed them to add text, pictures, and audio to their books.  They really did a very nice job!

There are two versions of each book: epub and pdf.  The epub can be downloaded and read in iBooks (on an iPad or iPhone/iPod Touch) or any other ebook reader.  You will even be able to hear your child read!  The pdf can be downloaded on a computer and printed.
