The 1st graders are hoping for snow so they can build actual snowmen.  But in technology, they used the Doodle Buddy iPad app worked very hard to draw some very good looking snow"people".

Using the iPad App - Stop Motion - the 2nd graders tried their hand at animation.  They used black construction paper, white circles and markers to create "Snowmen"!  Please enjoy their hard work.

The 4th graders worked at making flashlights with the Little Bits today.  Each table came up with a plan for design and creation. Then we turned out the lights to see our flashlights work.  Great day!

The 1st graders have been hard at work creating "How To" writing using the iPad app Pic Collage. They wrote their sentences on paper and then typed them into Pic Collage.  Then they took pictures of themselves and friends to illustrate their project.  Enjoy the Google Slideshow showing some of their hard work.

The 4th graders today received a introduction about using Little Bits circuitry.  Little Bits creates electronics with snap together magnets.  They are powered by 9 volt batteries and then you add your inputs and outputs to create fun buzzer noises, lights and moving objects. We will start some projects using the Little Bits and craft items soon!  Enjoy the excitement.

The second grade classes are finishing up their try with green screen technology.  We used the DOINK green screen iPad app, picked their flags as backgrounds, and worked in "heritage" groups to create a short video.  I put them into an iMovie for the students to enjoy.

We had a wonderful Winter Festival with Mrs. Westhaver, so hope you enjoy watching the iMovie that I was able to create with the footage.  It was simply wonderful and the students were wonderfully behaved and engaged in the music.
