4th grade ToonTastic

The 4th graders have been working hard on writing their very own first original stories.  First, we wrote them in their books using any vocabulary we’ve learned together in class.  Then we used an awesome app called Toontastic to digitize their stories and bring them to life!  Here are a few!  There are more to come!  We hope you enjoy!  Leave us a comment to let us know what you think.  Even if you don’t speak Spanish, maybe you can leave a comment and tell what each was about based on our animations?  :)

If you want middle school students to reeeeeeeeeally LOVE quizzes…every teacher should use Kahoot as as an assessment tool!  Check out our video above.  We tested our Cinco de Mayo knowledge in a very “game-based” way today!  So fun!  We were all so ENGAGED!

6th, 7th and 8th grade blogs

The middle school students have posted some really impressive work lately to our individual student blogs.  Please take a moment to check our work and maybe leave a comment as a guest?  We always post in both Spanish and English and LOVE receiving comments and attention to our work.

Our most recent posts are about Three Kings Day, our class service learning projects on Kiva.org, and digital Valentine’s Day cards in Spanish full of compliments and kind words written to one another. Use the Blog Directory on the right or left side of the screen to find your child’s name.  Email Señora B lbeversdorf@bannockburnschool.org if you’re not sure how to use the blog or if you are not sure of your child’s Spanish name. If you’d like a direct link to your child’s blog and don’t want to mess around with the blog directory, send Señora B an email and that can easily be done too!  :)

Here are the links to our blogs:

The 6th graders and I are so thankful that Kiva exists so that we can try to make a small difference in the life of someone in the country we are learning about!
