We have spent a number of classes finishing the Jamestown and Storybird projects. Students have learned:
Today we start a new project where we blend the old and the new. The students have been learning about Jamestown and writing a fictitious journal. But what-if the early settlers had access to computers and could blog instead? What would it look like? Let's see what the students come up with.
Today we're going to talk a little about "blogs" and how they are different than "websites". We will use the Sports Illustrated for Kids website as an example. It is both a website & a blog. Then I will show them how to start their own blog using Weebly. They will learn how to add text and photos (from the field trip).
Some of the students have completed their Shapes books and everyone should be done by the end of class today. I'll post them in the gallery as they are finished. I am also going to show the students how they can copy and paste "audio", the same way they copy and paste pictures and text.
Most of the kids are finishing up their Powerpoint Shapes Games. Today we will:
When they are done, the kids should test each other's books. Each book needs to be tested by at least two kids. Each kid needs to test at least two books. Once done, they can have free time on the computers.
Today the students will finish adding pages to their Powerpoint Shapes Book and then add the hyperlinks to make the book "interactive". The students learned how to:
The third grade is making Shapes Books using Microsoft Powerpoint for the Jr Kindergarteners and Kindergarteners. Today, they will learn how to:
They must include:
The following is an example of what the book might look like after the second class:
Once you are done, you can try some other Word Cloud generators. You can enter any words you choose.
We looked at some more features of the file system including: how to navigate the file system, get different views of the folders and files and how to sort files by file name, date, etc. Then we practiced by doing a Spanish Word Hunt. I added folders and files to their personal folders. As they open the appropriate file such as El Gato.doc, they are given their next word to search for. The file El Gato.doc says "El Gato is a Cat. Now go to the file Ears in the Body Part directory." Below you will find the Spanish Word Hunt Worksheet.
