A week ago we made a twitter board with our buddy class! They had created a twitter bulletin board with “tweets” about something they wanted to share! Really interesting to read and find out about what’s important to them right now! So they showed us how to do it!
The children are writing on their own personal strip each week and sharing something important to them! An upscale “show and tell”! The bulletin board “twitter board” lets each child share their important moments.
I have been researching class twitter boards and decided to take the plunge this week! We now have our own Twitter account. It is a protected account. That means that to post to the account I must approve the comment. That protects us from posts that are not appropriate. The blog posts are also posted on the Twitter account!
We tweeted to Chris Hadfield to let him know that we enjoyed his videos about life on the space station. We also tweeted to another class that has a Twitter account. There are some really neat uses of Twitter that we will be exploring in the future.
The children are continuing to create their frog life cycle pages on the iPad using the images that I have downloaded for them and Strip Designer. When they are complete I will figure out some way to share them with you! Here is another sample that is complete! Love the Hello and Boing!
We did a research project on frogs this week! The children had to sort facts about frogs into four different categories. We read them and decided which category fit the best. I was so proud of their reading. Some of the words were hard!
They did a great job! We are collating all our frog stuff into a frog folder!
