Favorite Apps so far?


What is your favorite App?

Tonight I would like you to reflect on the year so far? Think about all the different apps that we have used. Which app is your favorite so far? Let’s have a conversation about our favorite apps? Why are they your favorite? Are they easy to use? Please write as much as you can.

Student Books

We recently studied the elements of fiction and non-fiction. We read a very interesting book called White Owl:Barn Owl.   By Nicola Davies, Illustrated by:  Michael Foreman

After reading the story the students were assigned the task of recreating their own version of the mentor text. Their story had to include both elements of fiction and non-fiction. The students did a fantastic job! Below is what they came up with.

What is your Wonder?

Please write about a few wonders you have. Why are these wonders of yours? Then, check back a bit later to see other classmates wonders. Comment on at least two other students. Start a conversation with them about their wonders. Remember, be respectful and edit your writing before posting. Have a great evening.
