Students created buttons to show their love of reading. We used colourful pages from discarded picture books and pages of text from old paperbacks to create our People Press pins.
Students in Grade 1 showed their learning about Japan by using the drawing app Doodle Buddy. Instead of exporting from the app and uploading to Dropbox, students used a frame placed on top of their work and used the camera of another iPad to take a photo. We are looking forward to figuring out other ways that we can combine media to show learning.
In the Learning Commons, we shared Danielle Daniel’s book Sometimes I feel like a Fox. The paperback edition is in a larger format which makes the pictures more visible in a group. Students discussed which character they connected with the most on that day. We used FaceFilm App to show ourselves in the characters.
Students in Kindergarten used QR Reader App to scan book spines created by Grade 3s. The codes lead students to extension videos or pictures related to the story. Later we will put our QR spine labels on display in the library.
Students had great fun sharing the terms of endearment their family uses. We celebrated Valentine’s Day with the wonderful book Little Treasures: Endearments from Around the World by Jacqueline K. Ogburn with illustrations by Chris Raschka. Students showed their learning with digital creations using Doodle Buddy App.
Grade 2/3 read Feathers for Lunch by Lois Ehlert. We created some great little cats with lots of personality. Googily eyes helped to show how frustrated the cat was because he could not catch a bird for lunch.
Students created their own versions of redacted poetry by highlighting words from pages of discarded books. Such great thinking!
