iMovie State Reports

The students in Room 16 have been working so hard on our research reports and making an iMovie. I walked them through it, but they took the pictures, found pictures on the internet, cropped them, did their own recordings and editing! Check out their hard work below! :)

Creating an iMovie

Here are some photos of Room 16 working hard to create their own iMovie. They are learning and having fun at the same time!

Geometry, Straws, Twist Ties, and Math

Hands-On activities are a way to get the kids moving, exploring, and learning. This week I introduced angles, vertices, sides, and other geometric shapes. In math, I gave each child a handful of straws and twist ties. I had the kids make shapes, point out sides, vertices, and angles. We compared and contrasted the shapes. Then I had them make certain shapes with the specific number of straws. The kids had a blast and learned a lot too! I love when I see the "lightbulb" turn on for some students and when I hear, "Oh, now I get it!" These are the best moments in the classroom!

Harry Potter

Our class LOVED Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone! We read and responded to each chapter and we talked a lot about the characters, the settings, making a movie in your head as I read, and asked questions before, during, and after each chapter. It was seriously amazing to see their minds work. As a wrap-up activity, I found pictures of the characters and I made them into posters. Then the students were put into groups and had to list words to describe their character and their traits. They loved this activity and I did too! It was so much fun! :)

Measuring with Students!

Talk about making math fun! We are measuring our classroom with our bodies and measuring our feet, arm span, lengths of our jumps, and comparing lengths. The kids LOVED this lesson!
