Last week Mrs. D shared winter stories with our Kindergarten and 1st grade classes – Students were also introduced to the interactive version of Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. It was also a great time to discuss the Caldecott Award and how we can identify those books in our Riverside library collection. Then our primary students practiced using their clicking and dragging skills on the ABCya Make a Snowman portion of their website.
2nd graders were excited to get into Tumblebooks using a generic login and password. The interface of Tumblebooks has changed since last year and their are more books than ever that are available to students.
3rd, 4th and 5th graders practiced their keyboarding skills and also had opportunities to answer the Question of the Week link that Mrs. D has created using Padlet.
Our next rotation began and we are focusing on one of my favorite projects, the Kindness Boomerang – which also happens to take place during the beginning of February – just in time for Valentine’s Day. Check out the link I have to this project on the Riverside Elementary web page.
