Categorizing Pirates with Pic Jointer App

The fire has been keeping us nice and toasty in the Learning Commons this week. Strong Start preschool has been enjoying Christmas stories, a Santa craft and exploring skill developing apps on the iPads. Some kindergarten students have used the Balloon Stickie app to create images to show that pirates say “Rrrrr”. Some grade 2 students used Pic Jointer to demonstrate their ideas about categorization with pirate themes and many classes continue to explore new countries through postage stamps.

We are also using a new twitter account in the Learning Commons @VanierLC. Students can use this account to share mini book reviews and recommendations and to tell about their learning. Students only have access during library classes, all tweets are moderated by the Teacher Librarian and we only follow other classes, schools or those we can learn from. Follow us @VanierLC to stay connected.
