The iPads have been in our classroom for the past couple of weeks, and we are excited to finally share our projects. The students have been working very hard researching and learning about animals from all over the world. We used online resources and books to learn about the animals and their habitats. We organized the information we gathered and created digital books using one of my favorite apps, bookPress. The students learned how to add text, pictures, change fonts and create lay-outs for their all about books.

Today the students were the tour guides of the classroom. They directed their parents around the room and visited stations to share their learning with their families. Thank you to all the families that visited our classrooms today!
To begin the journey, the students and families watched a slideshow of pictures from throughout the year.
Then they visited 4 stations: A reading station, a writing station, a math station and a science station.
