Hip Hop Dancing

Above is a short video clip of our hip hop lesson. Talk to your child about this dance lesson. Did your child enjoy it? What did your child prefer: learning jazz or hip hop? Why? Please leave a comment below and let us know.

Our Collaborative Storybirds

On Friday, Mrs. Howe and I put our classes together, and we let the students create Storybirds with a partner. My class has used the Storybird website before, but this website is new to Mrs. Howe's class. This gave my students the opportunity to teach Mrs. Howe's students how to use the website. The children also needed to agree on pictures and text, and they had to work together to edit their work for conventions and ideas so that they could publish their Storybirds. The results were great! Check out the completed Storybirds on my student blogs and on Mrs. Howe's student blogs. Talk to your children about this activity and leave a comment here letting us know what they enjoyed the most.
