1st Grade--Dr. Seuss Week 3

Studens read 2 more Dr. Seuss books on the ipad this week, Fox in Socks and Yertle the Turtle. As with previous stories they asked each other questions using the literature flashcards in the Flashcards app.

On Tuesday students created an Educreations response for One Fish Two Fish that they read last week. Thinking back to all the unusual characters in that book, students drew and labelled parts of their own unusual creation. Then they talked about likes and dislikes of their creature.

As a specific response to Yertle the Turtle students students used Educreations to interview each other. One student was the interviewer and the other pretended to be Yertle the Turtle. "Yertle the Turtle" explained, via a story created by the 2 students, how he can come to be such a bucket dipper. This book fits in well with our school's anti-bullying Project Cornerstone program. Unfortunately students created the Educreations video on Thursday and apparently there was a bug at Educreations that prohibited videos uploaded during a period of time (Thursday afternoon-Friday morning) from playing. Sorry, no sample!
