Welcome Baby Cora

Students in Mrs. Inconiglios's Kindergarten Class have created  welcome pictures using the apps drawing pad and animoto for new Baby Cora. 
Thank you Mrs. I for sending in a picture. Cora is beautiful!

Oh, Canada

"Today in school Ms Scott's 4th grade class went on a skype visit and visited Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.  We had a great Think Tank so we were able to guess after 10 questions where they were.  We learned that in school they don't learn about many places so skype helps them.  We were glad that we could help them learn about Massachusetts."

Presidents by Mrs. Corliss' Class

Doing research and learning new facts has always been an enjoyable experience for students.  They usually can't wait to share some of the unique things they learn.  Mrs. Corliss' Class recently read all about presidents.  We used the app Chatterpix to create a slide show worthy of the presidents.

Mystery Skype

"Today we are doing a Mystery skype.  Our first clue:  They live in the USA.  Our second helps a lot.  They live in the Midwest Region.  So far, so good!  By our third question we already know that they are in Michigan!
But to make it fair (and for fun) we are going to try to find out their town, city, maybe even school.
So far, they know our state.
Now we are trying to figure out their county.  While this will be tricky, we will be able to do it.
We know they are not in Eaton, nor Jackson County.  This is hard.  Yes!  Now we know they are north of Wayne County.  We have figured out their county by now.  They live in St. Clair County.
There is only two minutes left, but who knows maybe we will figure out their town and school.
We now know their town.  They live in Port Huron.
The last thing we want to know is their school.
We know they don't go to Port Huron Elementary School.  Maybe Cull School?  Yes, we were correct!
Well, this has been fun, but our time here is over.  Talk to you next time on Mrs. Klipfel's"

"Today Mrs. Kelleher's Class had a Mystery Skype.  It was so exciting asking and answering the questions, but to ask the questions our Think Tank had to think hard.  Ben our Note Taker was a big help to our Mystery Skype because he was listening to one of their answers and narrowed their region down to the Midwest.  After that Google Mappers were making very astute observations and guesses.  We had one very lucky guess and we figured out their class was in Illinois.  At the end we figured out that the class we were skyping with was in 2nd grade.  That's so unbelievable because they were so astute.  Then we talked about our school and towns.  We had so much fun Mystery Skyping!"

Art Goes Digital

Mrs. Lang has been using the app Brushes with her sixth grade students.  The classes have been so excited while using this app you could hear a pin drop while they drew, redrew, changed, edited, and finalized their work.  The app allows the creator to view the stages of drawing in a video format.  It was exciting to watch as students shared their work via Apple TV with one another.
