'That was Summer' Poetry using Explain Everything

Room 6 have been working on their poetry over the last few weeks. We have combined creativity and technology together with literacy to create this fabulous audio book. We started out by reminiscing about Summer and drawing illustrations about our fond memories. We took photos of our work in explain everything and recorded our poems onto it. We then used iMovie to place in some background sounds. Here is our final class book titled, 'That was Summer'. We hope you enjoy it!

Using Pic Collage to Publish Writing

Room 6 have been using the school buses for inspiration for our writing. Tyler and Fraser are fascinated about the School buses so I thought we would hop on one and experience what it feels like to be on a bus. We discussed the expectations and the procedures if we were to go on a bus. We had a great experience and in turn created some fabulous writing.

Have a great term three holiday break!

Well I thought I would do a Screen Recording to remind students and show parents how to get on our new Class Learning Portal.
It is a way to have a transparent classroom where learning can take place anytime, anywhere, where there is an authentic audience for children's learning to improve student outcomes.

I hope you enjoy it and please use it as much as needed.
