May 1, 2015 - Reading and Technology...Let's connect!

During ISTEP testing week(s), I like to incorporate learning using more teamwork and a broad base of learning styles.  This week in reading the students are preparing to make a technology based presentation.  They don't really know all of this yet as we are taking it one step at a time. The first step was to read the book, Money Madness by themselves.  Then they read the book with their reading team (2 or 3 others selected by the teacher for the benefit of all:-) See Animoto created video on this blog.)

Then the students located and wrote 9 important facts from the book.  Did  you know money was not always used as a means to get items you and your family needed?

Next, the students used "Photos for Class" to locate 6-10 pictures that relate to money for future steps in the presentation process.

Then, today, students made their title page using "Crayola Mix & Mash."  I like to do the same requirements as the students to see what kind of issues they could run into.  But, I pick a different topic.  My topic is ranches.  Here is my title page for my presentation created with "Crayola Mix & Mash."

Hopefully, before the school year is over, your child will be able to share their creation with you on a Tuesday - iPad - goes - home - day.  This project is slated to take about 2 weeks, and then we will share all of them in one location for easy viewing and listening. (Yep, recording one's own voice is part of this, too!  FUN!)
