In literacy we are still focusing on inferring character traits. After much modeling and guidance, the students were ready to write about a character that has a particular trait. they picked a trait out of a hat. they then made their character come to life with an Avatar that they created through http://www.voki.com. Please see an example chart they filled out and some of their voki’s by clicking on the link below. (room 207 will be doing this tomorrow)
In social studies, we are working on Native Americans. Our focus right now is the Northwest Region and the Southwest Region. We read passages about each and highlighted important information and added it to our fact chart. We learned that in the Northwest, totem poles were popular while Kachina dolls were popular in the southwest. Students will be researching each and creating a chatter-pix about them. Stay tuned.
Thanks for checking in!
