Service Learning - Teaching Seesaw to Ms. Mary Beth's Crew

Today we taught Ms. Mary Beth's crew how to sign in to Seesaw and add a post. We loved being the experts and sharing what we have learned.

We also went on a walk with the whole school during The Beat this morning. It was perfect weather. It would be great to have this weather again tomorrow for the Voyage.

Research

We have been very busy researching the animals that we each chose. We are using books, magazines, ipads and computers to gather facts and information about our animals. We are taking notes on a chart that will help us write the book about our animal later. We are learning many fascinating facts.

Library - Our mid-week library visit is tomorrow.

Important Dates
2/23 Winter Voyage for 1st grade - one day only, not an overnight trip, no day of rest needed
3/20 - 4/3 Spring Break

Random (But Great!) Pictures and Videos

Below are a few random pictures and videos. If you get this post by email, you need to click through to the blog to watch the short little videos - they are worth the click. Enjoy.
Connor shares his tally chart about how many students in the crew wear glasses and how many don't

Calvin using his writer's notebook to keep track of his good ideas.

Kalyn was so excited about this game that she ran to tell Ms. Meghan all about it. Ms. Meghan asked if she could tell the story again on video to share with all of you.


Lis is also using her notebook to keep track of great words and ideas. The crew is seeing Ms. Meghan carrying around a notebook and they want to be writers just like her.


So many cool things happened today and I am running out of steam so I won't be adding notes and captions to the videos below except to say that the crew is so inspired to keep a notebook. This is so good for them - any type of writing practice is fantastic. If they ask for a notebook at home, I would jump at the chance. Drawing, writing, making lists - everything helps. They are so worth your time to view and see.
