Mrs. Bond's Second Grade Class Animal Projects

Students in Grade 2 are all busy working on their research reports. They used three sources for their information and collected all their information. Students were then asked to make an outline of the information. Using a template supplied by the teacher, students then filled in the information. They found images, using Britannica's Image Quest pictures.

Kinder Paper Slides!

Kindergarten students in Mrs. Sprow's have been researching animals using online resources. They used Pebble Go to find out what the animals look like, where they live, what they eat, and other interesting facts. They wrote all their information and illustrated their animal books.

When finished, they made a "paper slide" of their books. They made a video of themselves reading their reports! What a fantastic way of learning about animals and sharing that information!

Fourth grade practiced summarizing stories in the library. First they read a story with a partner. They worked together to create an outline in a pyramid format. They then had to use their pyramid to write out their summary of the story.

Here is one.
The gingerbread man starts of as a little piece of rolled up dough. later he is a live treat and eleven men chase him all around the city up until they get to a zoo, where a fox says that he is not interested. the gingerbread man needs to escape the humans, so the fox takes him into water and eats him.
