Blogging

Sixth graders have been leaning about the Voyageurs in their Social Studies Class. For their final project, students were asked to journal in the voice of a voyageur.

Students typed their entries up in class, and their teacher and I worked with them to create a blog using blogger. We learned that:

  • Blogs are a more informal way of communicating online
  • Blogs are like a journal with newest entries on the top of the page
  • Blogs are used for many reasons (hobbies, teaching tool, journal...)
  • Blogs are a way to publish online-- some people are even paid to blog!
  • Blogs are a type of digital media and are interactive
  • Blogs are fun and easy to make

Public Library Visit

This morning a Ramsey County Public Librarian came to visit our Kindergartners to invite them to get a library card at their January Library Card Party. Ms. Nicole read the students a funny book and taught them about Public Libraries. Author and Illustrator Grace Lin will be at the January event!

Public Librarians will prepare over 1000 library cards for Roseville kindergartners! Students were all very excited to get their own cards. Thank you Ramsey County Public Library.

Infographic


In 6th grade this year our students studied artists in their homerooms. In art class, the students learned about different styles of art and then researched an artist that interested them. They will create a piece of artwork in the style of the artist they studied. Students learned about sharing information through infographics in Literacy class time. Mr. Moore the art teacher taught the students some graphic art basic fundamentals. I then took the students to the labs and we learned how to tie everything together into making an infographic using technology. Students learned a lot of new skills to create beautiful cohesive projects. Their classroom teachers helped students complete their projects.

Check out the awesome work we did:

Illustrator Visit

Showing us how fast she draws!
Caldecott Honor recipient Betsy Lewin (author and illustrator of Click Clack Moo, Giggle Giggle Quack, and Duck for President) visited our school on Monday to debut her newest book Click Clack Surprise for students in kindergarten through 2nd grade. We had so much fun learning about how she creates illustrations and watching her draw!

Author and illustrator visits are one of my favorite parts of my job-- I love seeing my students connect with real people that make books!
