My favorites book timeline

Today we hit many skills as we started our timeline of books with 2nd graders.  First we talked about the 1st books they remembered reading or being read to them.  Then we searched under google images for book covers of some of our favorite books.  We are still searching and learning how to put our images into folders and save them.  What a fun way to learn about saving images and reliving our love of books.

New Template

We started using our new template for our websites so we have a place to keep all of the cool things we do!  Thanks to my fabulous media colleague Cathy Knutson!

In the past I have had the kids create lego like avatars with something called reasonably clever.  I wanted to get something a little different so we are moving to another one I found in mini clip which allows to get a little closer to an actual image of themselves.

Here's an example

Kid Pix and Tux Paint

We are working on creating dots that can be 3D and another coloring page which will be 3D with an app called Colarapp.  We have also been creating dots in tux paint and now moving into Kid Pix .
